What to Write in a Bridal Shower Card?

Writing bridal shower greeting cards for the bride-to-be requires much thought and consideration. You’ll need to write genuinely from your heart, and ensure that your relationship with the future bride guides your message. Whether you send her an e-card or printable pre-wedding card, the utmost priority is to make her feel special. As you write, put in mind the beautiful memories and the experiences you’ve shared. Even if you’re not close to the bride-to-be, it’s still vital to mention how happy you are for her. Below are five tips you can follow to help you come up with the best bridal shower cards ideas:   

  • You’ll be surprised at how a simple congratulations message can go a long way. The bride-to-be will be happy to know that you wish her the best on her approaching wedding day.  
  • Make her feel special by informing her that she will look stunning on her wedding day. You’ll probably also need to remind her that she’ll be everyone’s focal point on her big day. Writing 1-2 sentences emphasizing these facts will reassure her.  
  • Write from your heart, i.e., ensure that your card is personalized and reflects your bond with the bride. Let her know how much her happiness and the prosperity of her marriage means to you.
  • You should also wish the future bride love and laughter on her upcoming wedding day and marriage.
  • Finally, include an inspiring quote in your message, maybe something from your favorite poet. The bride-to-be will appreciate and remember these inspirational words. 

Funny Bridal Shower Wishes

These messages are designed for those who don’t reside on the dull side of life. Funny yet elegant words for a bride-to-be and personalized by an inside joke or two are perfect for wedding cards. Remember to sign off the pre-wedding card message with words of encouragement, compliments, and happiness for the bride-to-be. This type of card is suitable for both close friends and acquaintances of the couple. If you fall in the latter group, a light, hilarious joke followed by a congratulations message will do the trick.
