In the lead up to the big “I do,” there are so many other celebrations to enjoy like the engagement party, bachelorette party and of course, the bridal shower.

While your first instinct is to think about getting the bride-to-be the perfect bridal shower gift, it’s equally, if not more, important to make sure the bridal shower message you share with her, in a card or to her face when you go to hand her your present, is thoughtful, caring and overall shows how excited you are for her.

Jacqueline Whitmore, etiquette expert and founder of the Protocol School of Palm Beach, says you can’t miss with simple well wishes and congratulatory messages, but reminds us to always, always keep it positive.

“Keep the message upbeat, happy and positive even if you don't approve of the person, they’re planning to spend the rest of their lives with,” says Whitmore. “Regardless of how you feel about the person they're going to marry, put those feelings aside and be happy for the person celebrating their special day.”

Use one of these best bridal shower card messages below for you cardb, or use them as a starting point for something more personal. And once the bridal shower is over, look at these sweet wedding wishes.
