Wedding Shower Card For a Sibling

Siblings are your first friends. They teach you about relationships, friendships, and they’ll be around most of your life, having shared the unique vantage point of being raised by the same parents. So let your sibling know just how special your bond is while congratulating him or her on the upcoming union.

What to say:

  • "Best wishes to my first best friend! I can’t wait to welcome GROOM into the fold."
  • "We love you both and can’t wait to go on family vacations together."
  • "I always wanted an older sister, so thanks for adding BRIDE to the family."

Bachelorette Shower Card for a Friend

Maybe you’re the maid of honor for your college girlfriend. Or maybe you and your friend played in the high school marching band together. No matter the case, your friend has likely seen you at your best (dressed to the nines for prom) and at your worst (breakups and walks of shame). Don’t be afraid to play on that history.

What to say:

  • "From the prom all those years ago to the chapel, I can’t wait to celebrate your marriage to GROOM."
  • "Congratulations! You made it! Now, let’s party like we’re still 21!"
  • "He put a ring on it. And now, we dance!"
  • "Time to drink champagne and dance on the table."
  • "A toast to the perfect couple! I can’t wait to celebrate with both of you."

Bridal Shower Card for an Acquaintance

Whether you’re celebrating a coworker’s upcoming wedding over a lunch potluck, or you’re stuck at a couple’s shower for your husband’s fraternity brother, you can express well wishes formally or casually, depending on your relationship to the couple.

What to say:

  • "Best wishes for a long and happy life together."
  • "May the coming years be full of joy."
  • "Many congratulations. Thanks for including me in your celebration."
