There’s no time quite as special as a woman's wedding day! However, her bachelorette party and bridal shower are also major parts of the deal. That’s right, weddings are so important that the bride should be celebrated three times!

What Are Bridal Showers For?

Most women dream of the day they will be the blushing bride at the center of attention, shining from head to toe in a beautiful gown. It’s a time many of us look forward to, so always it's important to include a special card when gifting something to the bride.

Bridal showers are a tradition of gift-giving in anticipation of the impending wedding. Although the bride and groom will undoubtedly receive many gifts for their wedding, this is a day that is to celebrate the bride only while showering her with gifts, most of which are for the home. Oh, and let’s not forget about a little somethin’ somethin’ to wear on her wedding night!

Oftentimes, guests will opt to purchase a gift card rather than a present from the bridal registry. It’s a nice gesture and it allows her to use it as she pleases. Regardless of the type of gift you give, a greeting card is a must!

What to Should You Say in a Your Card?

If you walk into any Hallmark store, you’re bound to find rows and rows of cards specifically for weddings and brides. Your best bet is to pick a blank one with a nice picture on the front to write your own messages in. If you're the crafty type, you can skip the Hallmark store visit and make one by hand.

But how do you write your own bridal shower card messages? Well, here are some tips to get you started:

  • Memories: If you’re invited, then it is likely that you are close to the bride and have shared many happy memories with her. Include some silly or tear-jerking memories with the bride-to-be!

  • Happy thoughts: Your card should contain nothing but happy thoughts. Be sure to steer clear of “you’ll be sorry you’re getting married” messages, and don't bring up any kind of negative event.

  • Good luck: Marriage is hard and takes a lot of work! Wish her all the luck she will need to keep that fire burning!

  • Wedding/marriage advice: Give positive and constructive marriage advice that might be particularly helpful on her wedding day. Something like, “Don’t forget the rings!”—this seriously happened to me and we had to turn back around; I was late to my own wedding!
