We love stationery around here. We love looking through all the pretty designs, touching the paper (when we're in a physical store), and even hand-addressing envelopes. What we don't love? How expensive it can all get!
If you're throwing a bridal shower for someone, you're probably already spending enough money. (You are such a good friend/sister/cousin!) To help you save some cash, we present you with this totally free, downloadable, and editable invitation.
Our super-talented freelance graphic designer, Susanna Hopler, created it for a recent bridal shower we threw. And she wants you to have it, too. (Thanks, Susanna! You are a wizard!)
It's totally editable, which means you just have to download it and type in the specifics for your party. The bride's name, the date, the address ... it's all customizable. And it will look just as pretty as the one in the photo above!
You can print two to a page, so you won't get into too much trouble for printing them out at work. And they'll fit in standard A7 sized envelopes, which are simple to find and don't require special postage.

2 Fun Things to Include with the Invitation
1. A blank recipe card.
Give people directions to fill out the card in advance with a special recipe. Perhaps one the bride loves? Perhaps something they make for their own family? Tell guests to bring the card to the party and then, as they arrive, collect the cards to put in a special recipe box to give to the bride.
2. A request for songs.
Ask people to send their RSVP along with some names of songs that remind the guests of the bride-to-be. The songs can be used to build the ultimate bridal shower playlist — and a fun game for the bride.
