Although there's much to love about each of the seasons, summer is my ultimate favorite simply because of the beach. And yes, the beach is beautiful in all of its seasonal glory but it's only in the summertime that you can dip your feet in and become one with the entire experience. Unless of course you're a member of the Polar Bear Club. Which I'm not.
The sun, the sand and the murky water combine to leave us with a casual and comfortable feeling which in itself reflects a rustic romantic tone.
If the bride-to-be is a beach lover who enjoys a more shabby than chic lifestyle, or if the couple has chosen a rustic or beach wedding theme, I think you might have found the perfect invitations for their unique bridal shower.
Each of the following 10 rustic beach bridal shower invitations shares an airy informal design with elements from the beach. You'll find seashells and burlap, driftwood and sand, tropical flowers and other fashionable nautical details that come together to make these some of the most spectacular shower invitations I've ever seen for a summer wedding.

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?
