My best friend just got married this past August, and being her Maid of Honour I was in charge of the Bridal Shower (along with her mother-in-law...talk about stress..).
Due to the
mother-in-law, the shower put me under a ton of stress..she was very unorganized (didn't want to send out invitations, and forgot to tell her church friends to RSVP, plus much more), crazy, and had the tendency to try to change things without telling me (like the date of the shower! After invites and what not were sent out). Even with my nearly going crazy a few days before the shower..all went well in the end.
Anyways, as mentioned, mother-in-law did not want to send out invitations (also didn't mention inviting any of the brides friends or family..). I then took it upon myself to create and send invites to those that I thought the bride would want at her shower, and left the mother-in-law to let her friends know about the event via "word of mouth".
My first attempt and invitations/cards became this:
Pretty simple really..which the bride was looking for with her wedding
Colours a bit off, no flash.
The bride fell in love with them..and when she saw how simple they were to make, ended up wishing I made her wedding invites (let me tell you...hers were a pain to make! lol).
Apologies for all the backstory..that all just needed to be let off of my chest.
Thanks for looking!
