As a self-appointed person who specializes in helping others in the shower invite department, I can only call them as I see them and I've been selling quite a few baby shower invitations featuring cute chubby little elephants lately.
In fact, I've sold so many in the last few weeks that I can only predict that this a growing trend. Okay, so not everyone shops here... yet. But still, I've seen enough sales to vouch for this... even in my own small way.
And, you might be interested to know that these adorable pachyderm invites have been purchased fairly equally for both boy and girl babies. I'm not Sherlock Holmes by any means but I can generally tell which gender is expected by the colors of the invites ordered. "Elementary my dear Watson."
If you've decided to jump on this enormous trend, you'll want some quality invites that reflect the mommy-to-be's style and chicness, while also being unique show stoppers all their own.
Luckily, Zazzle has you covered on all fronts. Their invitations are all custom designed by artists and photographers and they can be easily personalized by you. They're printed on your choice of high quality card stock. They're affordable and come with a 100% satisfaction guarantee. That's my favorite part about this gig because I know I can highly recommend all of their products and if something, for whatever reason, doesn't end up the way YOU like it, it will be taken care of to YOUR satisfaction.
Here's just a few examples of the cuteness that you'll find there.

If you've decided to create your own bridal shower invitations, or if you want to customize the wording on the shower invites you found here, you'll want to make sure you include all of the information needed by your intended guests.
The short list will include:
With any of this most important information missing, you might as well cancel the party. For some showers a little more info will be necessary as well.
Other information you might add would include things like:
To Rhyme or not to Rhyme, that's a good question.
Rhyming invites are certainly cute but it's really not necessary so if you're no poet, fear not. You can just write all of the information in plain English.
In fact, too much wording on an invitation can make the information appear cluttered and harder to read.
If you're including an enclosure of any type, that might be a more appropriate place to use a cute poem, as shown on this fun recipe card enclosure.
Traditional Bridal Shower Invitation Wording
Any of the following will work well as your Intro.
Followed by: day, date, time, location, RSVP information and then anything else you plan to add.
Some non-traditional bridal shower intro wording might include a love quote from a favorite poet or maybe something along the lines of:
We're having a Celebration of Love for...
John and Mary Sitting in a Tree, KISSING, First comes love, then comes the shower... and you're invited.
Here's a couple of silly shower wording ideas:

What are Chevron Stripes?
Chevron is a pattern name for a shape, pattern, or object in the form of a V.
The Chevron design style has been around since ancient times and can be found on rock carvings and pottery from as early as 1800 BC.
It's been used in Heraldry, as military rank insignia, and on road signs for ages. It's also the name of an energy company. If you're interested, you can learn more about the history of this pattern at wikipedia or at ecosalon.
Lately Chevron stripes have been showing up all over the place and they've become especially exciting on invitations. This chic zig-zag pattern pops whether it's being used as a border or background and in my opinion, choosing invites with these stripes is a sure fire way to let your guests know that there's fun in store at your upcoming occasion.
You'll find trendy Chevron invites in every color of the rainbow, for any occasion and they look elegant in a cute way, if you know what I mean. In fact, the smaller the stripe, the more elegant they look, and the larger stripes make for more fun as shown on the following Chevron bridal shower invitations.

Princess parties are always so much fun. Sweet desserts can include anything from an elaborate castle-style cake to a simple crowned cupcake made using printables as toppers. For the more daring, I really love the idea of using an undressed Disney princess doll inserted into a cake as shown below. The cake and frosting become the gown and the doll can be easily cleaned up afterward to be presented as a keepsake to the mommy-to-be.

The History of Bridal Showers
Did you know that the custom of throwing a bridal shower dates back to the time when dowries were popular? Friends of the woman to be wed began giving what is now known as a bridal shower to compensate women who came from poor families who couldn't afford a proper dowry, or for a woman whose father didn't approve of the marriage and refused to pay.
