Bridal Shower Invitations We Absolutely Love

Planning an amazing bridal shower starts with finding the perfect invitation. Since the bride doesn't usually plan this party, it's (typically) up to the maid of honor, bridesmaids, or a close friend or family member to select stationery the woman of the honor is bound to love. Being tasked with this particular responsibility, though, can feel daunting—there are just so many pretty invites out there! Luckily, we're here to help.

The following bridal shower invitations, combined with your knowledge of your bride's style and taste, are sure to set you on course. From watercolor pastels and graphic prints to classic calligraphy and tropical motifs, these sweet notes are sophisticated, but still feel fun enough for this light-hearted fête. After all, that's what a bridal shower should be—a fun-filled party for the soon-to-be bride and her closest girlfriends. An on-theme or on-trend invite can set that easy-going tone and get her girls even more excited for the big day.

The stationery you see here does just that. Many of them allude to the actual shower's aesthetic. We loved one shower invite's illustrated fruit and veggie details, which foreshadowed a farmer's market brunch. Another note, adorned with tasteful hearts and calligraphed in red and pink, was perfect for a shower that fell right around Valentine's Day. Whatever theme you have in mind—and whatever your bride's preferences—these paper goods are sure to inspire your bride and just might make you best friend of the year.

We're not sure what's cuter—this invite's watercolor squash, carrots, and beets or the veggie-printed envelope liner.

This watercolor invite was inspired by the bride-to-be's favorite snack (berries!). Replicate the idea by hiring an illustrator to create a similar design for your own bride.

Ice Cream

An ice cream cone serves as yet another bridal shower symbol. "She got scooped up" is the perfect way to preface a sweet-themed celebration.

Cinco de Mayo

We love this pale-blue invite with pastel-hued drips and gold edges, but we're obsessed with this skull cocktail napkin. If you're showering your bride around Cinco de Mayo, a skull motif is so on-theme—just be sure to follow up the invite with plenty of tequila-based cocktails at the party.

Does her shower fall on or around Valentine's Day? Tissue paper hearts and a metallic gold cut-out are cute nods to Cupid.

We love how the assorted prints on this shower's paper goods—from the carnation-covered invite, to the striped envelope liner, to the leafy menu—all work together.
