Planning the Perfect Bridal Shower
I recently hosted a bridal shower for my niece, so you could say I’m a bit of an expert when it comes to planning a shower! (To see how the shower turned out and get decorating ideas, see my DIY bridal shower decor post.)
These printable wedding advice cards are only one piece of the party! I also created several coordinating DIY decor items, including:
- Multicolor pom poms
- Paper flowers
- A pennant banner (using my handy Cameo cutting machine)
- Photo props
- Mimosa bar printable signs
- Party favor tags
- Washi tape pencils (see the mini tutorial at the end of this post)
I’ve also added more tutorials with step-by-step instructions for creating handmade decor of your own. Check out these stunning DIY wedding table numbers, for starters.
Supplies Needed for Wedding Advice Cards
To make your free printable wedding advice cards or bridal shower advice cards, you’ll need the following items:
- Inkjet or laser printer
- Paper cutter or scissors
- Cardstock paper (8.5 x 11 inches, 65 lb. or weight of your choice)
No printer? No problem.
You can also print and cut your cards at a local print shop or office supply store.
I’m often asked about printer recommendations since I love to make free printables for every occasion. I highly recommend this Epson, which I bought specifically for my printable projects. This model easily printed my bridal shower advice cards on cardstock.
Directions for Cutting Marriage Advice Cards for Bridal Shower
Your free printable wedding or bridal shower advice cards are formatted to print four cards per page. Once you print the number of pages you need, you can use a standard paper cutter or scissors to separate the advice cards.

Bonus: Washi Tape Pencils!
If you’re looking for a cute and inexpensive way to dress up your pencils for an upcoming wedding or shower, try washi tape. These coordinate perfectly with the free printable advice card templates.
Washi Tape Supplies
I used 1-inch wide washi tape for the pencils. You can buy the similar ones here. This width should fit perfectly around a standard no. 2 pencil.
Directions for Washi Tape Pencils
I suggest sharpening the pencil before you begin. Then, lay the pencil with the pointed edge away from the tape. Cut the tape at the start of the metal eraser end.
When rolling your pencil in washi tape, secure one long edge first. Pretend you’re making an enchilada.
Doesn’t the washi tape make this pencil look party-ready? It’s the perfect complement to my free printable “advice for the bride” cards!
