The Complete Guide To Throwing a Lingerie Shower

THE LINGERIE SHOWER: The sophisticated alternative to either the Bachelorette Party or Bridal shower; gives a bride the chance to let loose in an elegant and sexy way.

THE GUEST LIST

A lingerie shower is a perfect opportunity to invite close girlfriends to party and let
loose. So, better to steer clear of inviting close relatives or in-laws! Let her create
her preferred guest list and stick to it!

Easiest: Use a Google document or Microsoft Excel then she shares it with the maid of
honor or host of the party.

THE INVITATIONS

First impressions are the most memorable. That goes for invitations, too. Make it an
unforgettable one! Use a lingerie shower template or design your very own. Go old
school and mail invites made by Etsy or Zazzle.com. Or use one of our customizable
e-vites with Paperlesspost. The invites are fully trackable, showing you exactly who
opened it and has yet to respond; perfectly organized for her inner bridezilla.

*Note: The invitation should reflect the spirit of the party and the bride-to-be!
