The Uncommon Life

Say What?

August 12, 2011

Finding the perfect gift at UncommonGoods is a snap. But what about writing that card?

We’re here to help you find those words.

If you’re not sure what to say in the bride-to-be’s card, you either:

A. Love her too much for words,
B. Don’t know her well enough to personalize the card, or
C. Can’t stand the witch and don’t even know how you got invited to this stupid party in the first place.

Regardless of your answer, the rule to remember is:

Share your feelings.

Because if you can’t do it in a card, where can you?

But don’t forget – bridal showers are for tea cups, croissants and high-pitched laughter. So talk about your emotions, but do it the way an uptight person would.

Try one of these notes:

Your mother told me to keep my mouth shut. So I’m keeping my mouth shut. Good luck with your wedding.

I love you so much. Even though you don’t see the irony in wearing white.

Thanks for inviting me to your shower. It’s nice to finally see you again.

You picked a good one. I love your fiance. He’s truly been there for me in ways you never could.

Congratulations on finally losing the weight!

But if you’re bold and feel like being completely honest, the best thing you can do is shut up.
And let poignant words of the wise do the talking:

“Love isn’t something you find. Love is something that finds you.”
Loretta Young

“Love conquers all.”

And my personal favorite:

Dear Bride-to-Be:
Plato said, “At the touch of love everyone becomes a poet.”
Which makes you far better suited to write this card than I.

Place your memorable card atop an equally memorable gift:
