Other options for a bridal shower wedding invitation include buying pre-existing cards with just the pictures or design on it.

Then, for the hostess on the go, there is the online invitation and the fill-in-the-blank invitation. The online invitation is often called an "e-invite" because it is either emailed to the guests or a web site is emailed to you for you to visit.
