Are you planning a couples wedding shower and need invitations to go along with it? You’ve come to the right place! In this blog post, we’ll talk about the difference between a couples wedding shower and a traditional bridal shower, plus what kind of invitations to get and what the proper invite wording is.
A couples wedding shower is a unique alternative to a bridal shower where guests are co-ed in attendance.
The gathering is similar to an engagement party in that many guests receive an invite vs. just the ladies; however, it is still a wedding shower! You’ll serve a tasty meal, the couple will complete a gift registry, and guests will compete in games to win prizes. :)
Couples Wedding Shower Invitation Wording
The wording for couples wedding shower invitations are similar to a traditional bridal shower invite.
The only major difference is you both of the couple’s names are included on the invitation. In addition, the wording “please join us for a couples’ shower” vs. “bridal shower” phrasing is different. And last but not least, the timing of the actual party may occur later in the evening instead of a luncheon, which is typically the norm for a bridal shower. For example, an I DO BBQ couples’ shower may begin at 6pm with a cookout outdoors vs. a 12pm luncheon.
