When should you send invitations for a bridal shower?
Bridal shower invitations should go out between six and eight weeks before the event, depending on how many out-of-towners are on the list. Make sure guests RSVP to one person (the maid of honor, for example) to keep numbers organized.
Should the mother of the bride host a bridal shower?
Traditional etiquette dictates that the maid of honor—not the mother of the bride—should host the shower. Anyone who's close to the bride, including her mother, sister, aunt, cousin, even her grandma, can host.
How do I confirm an RSVP email?
You can send an email to the sender with RSVP protocol, which saves time and money, depending on the instructions in the invitation, and indicate the following: “RSVP, regrets only” or simply “regrets only”, which is a popular modern variation that implies, “If you don't reply, that will be taken as an acceptance.”
