We’re kicking it off with the first thing guests will see when they arrive at the bridal shower: a rustic, chalkboard-inspired welcome sign. Available in cardstock or canvas, the sign can be printed on 8x10” or 11x14” cardstock ($20-$25, perfect for framing) or 8x10”, 11x14” or 16x20” canvas ($48-$88).

Is it really a bridal shower without some silly games? Well, sure, but they do make things a lot more fun. This bundle comes with four 8.5x11” digital files, each with two or four cut-out game templates for easy printing at home. There’s a word scramble, a “how well do you know the bride?” quiz, a bingo game and “advice for the bride” cards.
