Whom should I address the card to?
Since the shower is in honor of the bride, you can choose to write a message in the card for the bride-to-be. However, if you know the groom personally, you can include his name as well.
Call it a wedding or bridal shower, the party is an excellent opportunity to share your feelings about the upcoming wedding with the exhilarated bride-to-be. For months, she has been running around town with her maid of honor trying to finish all the wedding-related tasks. And hence, the shower has become an ideal event for her to catch a breather and be with her close friends and family before the big day.
Although not a mandatory rule, presenting the bride-to-be with a card along with the bridal shower gift is always a good idea. The card usually has a meaningful message that she can cherish for years to come. So, if you want to know what to write in a bridal shower card, then perhaps the following 30

You found Mr. Right. He is everything you wanted in a life partner, and so much more. You two are perfect for each other. Always love and respect one another the way you have till today.

As Audrey Hepburn once said, "The best thing to hold onto in life is each other." Always stay true to yourselves, and love and support one another no matter what. Thanks for letting me be a part of your celebration.
The wedding day will come and go, but what will remain is your love for one another. Stay true to yourselves, say 'I love you' everyday, and know it in your hearts that your relationship will never falter.
This comes with love for both of you. Have a happy day, a happy year, and happy memories.
My heart wants nothing more than to see the two people I love and admire the most joined in holy matrimony. Today, I wish you both a lifetime of happiness, and pray that your union is as sweet and joyful as you both are.
By letting me be a part of your wedding celebrations, you are giving me the opportunity to witness the start of something beautiful. I just wanted to congratulate you both on your big day. I wish you have a wonderful life together that is filled with love and everything good.
As your wedding day goes by, your true adventure/journey begins. So with each day, I wish that you'll grow even closer and trust one another to make the right decision for the future.
'Happily ever after' isn't limited to fairy tales. When we look at you both, we know it in our hearts that there is someone for everyone. We all have a soulmate waiting for us to find them.
Congratulations, (couple's names)! We are thrilled to be a part of your celebration and wish you the best of luck on this great adventure you're about to embark upon.
A wedding lasts a day, but a marriage lasts forever. I know that you two will prove this to everyone with your love, support, and trust for one another. Enjoy your wedding day and hope that you have a glitch-proof life ahead.
You guys make a beautiful couple. Through all the ups and downs of your relationship, neither one of you gave up; and that's what I admire about you guys the most. Always stay this way―happy, and madly in love.
It's tough to imagine my sweet sister is about to get married. As your big sister, I feel I'm obligated to tell you that (groom's name) will never love you the way I do. You will always be my sister, best friend, and confidante, and I am going to be here for whatever (and whenever) you need me for.
You know I've always loved both of you from the start. I have seen your relationship get stronger and stronger as both of you have grown, and trusted each other every step of the way. Congratulations, and have a fabulous married life.
