I’m making bridal shower invitations for a party I’m hosting in my home, but the wording seems off. Do I need to say: The Rowe Family Home, or The Rowe House? It just doesn’t sound right to me, and I would like to leave it off. The RSVPs will be addressed to me, and the return address will be mine as well. Is this enough? Also, I tried to adapt the poem from one I found online.. but the last line sounds overly wordy to me. Originally the last line said “Please bring your recipe to Nicole’s bridal shower”. The RSVP cards are going to have a recipe card on the back, so even people that aren’t able to make it can send in a family recipe. (She has a lot of out of town guests that probably won’t be coming in for the showers.) I plan to buy her a recipe card box and some personalized recipe cards to go in there as well.
So far I have:
Please join us for a Bridal Shower honoring
Saturday, October 1st
at one o’clock in the afternoon
Nicole and John will soon say, “I Do”.
They’ve got lots of love, but they need to eat too!
Nicole might like to try your favorite cake.
Or that special dish your friends always ask you to make.
Whisk the egg yolks, bake one hour..
Fill out the enclosed card and we will present them to her at the Bridal Shower!

I would just put the address and leave out anything regarding “The Rowe House” or anything like that.
I wish I could help with that last line. I do see what you mean about it being a mouthful.

“Fill out the card and bring to the shower” ?
“Please bring a recipe to (Bride)’s bridal shower!” ?

@julies1949: Those both sound great! But I wanted to get recipes sent back via the RSVP cards from people that aren’t able to come as well. I think the shower will be pretty small since a lot of people are from out of town. I would like to be able to give her recipes from all of the important women in her life, kwim? I am just not poetic at all!
