Nobody said planning a bridal shower would be easy (or if they did, we're sorry), but finding invitations to set the tone for the celebration certainly is. Stationery spots have stepped up the game as of late, meaning you can basically find shower invites that put some wedding invites to shame. But you're already budgeting for a lot as is, with food, gifts, favors, fun games (dare we even go on?), so it's a safe assumption that you don't want to break the bank mailing bridal shower invitations.
Well, breathe a sigh of relief, party planner, because you can still wow the bride and crew without spending a fortune. You'll be pleased to know that there are so many readily available templates, tutorials, and customizable cards for DIY bridal shower invitations that look absolutely beautiful—and tote an equally enjoyable price tag. Some blogs and websites offer downloads completely free of charge, whereas others may only cost upwards of $15. Take your pick from these charming invitation ideas so you can officially cross step number one off your bridal shower checklist.
