  • Date
  • Time
  • Location
  • Address
  • Host's name
  • RSVP contact person and email address/phone number

Can also include:

  • Registry information
  • Details about the theme and if any special attire or specific type of gift is required
  • If the shower is a surprise and when the bride is expected to arrive
