Items you will need
Whether you're the maid of honor or the mother of the bride, if you are responsible for a bridal shower, you want to make it the most memorable event possible. The kick-off of any event is the invitation. It sets the stage for what is to come and gets guests excited about the party. Hosting a memorable bridal shower does not have to break the bank, though; you can create your own customized bridal shower invitations online and print them for free.
Download a free bridal shower invitation template from the Internet that fits your theme. Office.Microsoft.com and Apollo'sTemplates.com are just two examples of the many websites that offer free templates. On the Office.Microsoft.com website, click on the "Templates" tab in the top-left corner of the home page, and then enter "bridal shower" in the search bar to view a variety of bridal shower invitation templates. To download one, simply hover your mouse over it and click on "Download."
Find the template file in the directory to which you downloaded it, and then click on the file to open it.
Enter the shower information in the indicated fields on the template. Include the name of the bride (and perhaps the fiance); the date, time and location of the shower; contact name and phone number for RSVP; and gift registry information. If it's a surprise, indicate that somewhere, and mention any special themes or instructions.
Click on "Print" and choose your paper type, number of copies and print quality.
Print the invitations on your stationary, and place them in envelopes for mailing.
Print a test invitation on plain paper before printing on your fancy stationary. Make sure that the alignment is correct, and have someone else proofread it for you before printing all of your copies.
