    I had someone make them for both my daughters. One is this Sunday and she’ll probably kill me when she sees I had her engagement picture cartooned for her shower invites! lol

    This is the blurred version!

    Here they are waiting for the ribbons to dry.

    haha i love this post!

    I’m a designer so needless to say I did my own invitations, save the dates, menus, programs, etc etc etc. My mom asked me to do the invites for one of my showers and I said yes, but the 2nd shower I said no. I’m DONE desiging things for this wedding. – There are a million other things I need to do right now.

    I’m doing them for the one shower as my contribution and to help my aunt. But I am really excited to just receive the invitation for the other shower.

    So yes, and no.

    @smyley:  I think that is adorable!  I would love it.

    I am not making or buying my own shower invites.  I did go to one of the wedding invite websites because I really like the look of printed ones rather than handwritten ones…and my mom/MOH doesn’t really understand a lot about bridal showers, so I was trying to help her along so I sent her several links to give her ideas for what they could do.  My mom then asked me if I could just buy them and she would pay me back.

    I told her no, I didn’t really want to buy my own shower invites.  I don’t want to have the feeling that I am the one planning it.  But I do try to offer ideas and suggestions…mostly because they aren’t surrounded in 100% wedding like I am.

    No, my hostesses are taking care of the invites. I wanted to share this website with you though: http://www.downloadandprint.com.

    There are 14 gorgeous invitation templates on there now and they’re FREE to download and print. Love them!

    The lady that is making the templates also takes requests.

    Hehe.  I saw some inexpensive invitations on clearance and almost bought them for my shower hosts.  I refrained.

    I voted that someone else is, but I’m kind of holding her hand through the process =) My sister is on it, but doesn’t know much about showers so I have to help her out.

    msmonicka– i’m sorry you don’t have the “luxury” of just showing up. it just so happens that my bridesmaids are fully capable of throwing me a fabulous shower on their own.

    My maid of honor made mine, and she (along with the help of my other bridesmaids) planned the whole thing – in fact, most elements of it are still a total surprise to me (it this saturday – I can’t wait!)

    I probably could have given more guidance, preference, help, suggestions, and whatnot, but I decided to leave it in my maids’ capable hands, and I’m going in with no expectations – just the excitement to have a ton of fun with some great ladies.

    Honestly, being around weddings and so much wonderful inspiraton as brides, I understand the desire to pitch in to make it fit the high standards that the internet has to offer, but I’ve decided to save these great ideas for when I can throw someone else a shower, and I’m honored that my maids wanted to do it on their own.

    @ msmonicka: thanks! I’ve been kinda stalking my registry, so I already know about some of the gifts, but it makes me all the more excited.
