Advice for Wedding Shower Cards


Advice cards have become a popular feature of bridal showers. Guests write their own marriage advice on the cards which are then given to the bride to be. These cards may be handed out to be completed (and sometimes are read aloud at the bridal shower) or sent to guests to fill out ahead of time so that they may be placed into a keepsake arrangement.


  • A wedding shower advice card is usually the size of a large index card with a wedding themed border or motif. Most advice cards contain a heading such as "Advice for the Couple," followed by blank lines on which to write helpful hints and a line for a signature.


  • Think about what you want to convey to the couple on this card. Though what you write on this card may take you only a moment and then be forgotten, it will become a lifelong keepsake for the bride and groom. Consider your relationship to the couple and reflect what they mean to you by providing heartfelt advice. Draw upon life experiences that taught you something valuable about relationships, and share the meaningful lesson you learned. Try to share something that will be helpful to the couple as they embark on their new life together and be valuable enough to remain so for many years to follow.


  • Write something helpful even if you are not close enough to the couple to be sentimental. Relay a story of how you keep your marriage strong. If you are uncomfortable providing romance tips, jot down some cooking tips or a favorite recipe along with a note that says something like "Never go to bed angry...or hungry." Look up a meaningful quote if you can't come up with one of your own.


  • Refrain from using sarcasm, spouting cynicism or airing regrets. Keep any negative thoughts you have about love and marriage to yourself. The bride and groom are celebrating a happy event that should not be clouded by thoughts or feelings which are less than happy. Use humor only if you can keep it tasteful and upbeat. If it can be misconstrued as an unfavorable sentiment, write something else.
