Today, more and more wedding showers are co-ed events that honor both the bride and the groom. Some people refer to this type of shower as a Jack & Jill Party – and it really is much more like a party than the traditional bridal shower! If you are hosting a co-ed wedding shower, the groomsmen, ushers, friends of the groom, and male family members would also be included. Gifts are still the highlight of the event, but this is also a fantastic opportunity to gather families and friends together prior to the wedding!
Once you decide on a theme, choose your invitations to compliment it and give a sneak preview to the upcoming celebration. For example, if you throwing a “Hard Hat” shower, attach a note to a small toy hammer for a clever invite. A Beach Party shower invitation could be an uninflated beach ball with the details written on it.
• If you opt for an invitation that is formally printed, a Dreaming Of Moonlight Invitation is the perfect one to send for this type of event!
• Another idea is to scan an individual picture of each of the bride and groom onto the front of a card. Connect the pictures with a faint line. On the inside of the card scan a picture of them together and say, “Let’s shower Katie and Chris with blessings as they begin their lives together!”
