General Wording

General invitations simply extend a polite invitation to the shower event. They often follow more traditional wedding and party invitation wording guidelines. An example of this would be:

Please join us in celebrating

Sunday, July 23
2:00 p.m.

On Friday, August 15
At 7:00 p.m.
R.S.V.P: Friday, August 8 to Norma Dayson at (555) 234-0987

Theme Wording

Invitation wording for a themed shower will need to let guests know what is required of them. Wording is often written in rhyming or verse fashion, though not always.


Consider the following wording for a kitchen or baking themed shower:

John asked Jean to bake a cake.
But what, oh what, will she make?
Help her decide by bringing your favorite cake recipe
To a Dessert and Kitchen Shower in Jean Brown's honor
Saturday, March 23 at 3:00 p.m.
At the home of hostess Mary Paile
234 Hometown Avenue
Rightville, State


A cute Lingerie-n-Linens Shower invitation can be written like this:

Jack will be singing a happy tune
When time comes for his honeymoon.
Bring a nightgown, teddy or slip
For Karen to model on their fun Cancun trip!
When they return
They will need to keep that hot heat
But in order to do so, they need some great sheets!
A Lingerie-n-Linens Shower is being held for Karen Watson
Sunday, April 17 at 6 p.m.
In conference room 216 of the
Highlight Hotel
