Who Is Invited?
Who all is invited to your bridal shower you may ask. Well, typically anyone who is invited to your bridal shower would also be invited to your actual wedding. Keep this in mind when creating the guest list. You would generally invite your bridal party, close family and friends and maybe a few acquaintances (that would be invited to your wedding as well).

When Should Invites Be Sent?
You wedding shower invitations should typically be sent around four to eight weeks before the event to give people time to plan if they can come or not. This also gives plenty of time for RSVP’s to come in which are super important when it comes to ordering food or drinks for the event! You definitely do not want to wait when it comes to sending invites. It may not be enough time to get your RSVPs back to properly plan the event.
How Should You Address Invites?
When addressing wedding shower invites its customary to be more formal (especially if your event is on the more formal side) You would want to write out the person’s first and last name and include their title (ex. Mrs. Ashley Jones or Ms. Sarah Thomas) You will also want to avoid abbreviations in the address such as Ln for Lane to be the most formal.
