As any bride-to-be will tell you, a wedding is much more than just the ceremony. Preparations often begin months before the big day arrives. The brides-to-be thoughtfully select their attendants, meticulously plan the details and tirelessly search for the perfect dress.
On top of all of this, there are countless celebrations leading up to the wedding. Bridal showers, bridesmaids’ luncheons and bachelorette parties are just a few of the occasions for which you may receive invitations. These times will forever be remembered by the bride as a celebration of her, and the mementos she keeps will always remind her of this hectic, but exciting, time.
This trio of cards features soft, feminine colors appropriate for any pre-wedding celebration.
