BRIDAL SHOWER

BRIDAL REGISTRY LETTER
 
Dear Bride-To-Be,
 
The second most important day of your life will soon be here!  Naturally, your wedding day is the first, but what is the second?  Well, your bridal shower of course!  How would you like to avoid that forced smile required as you open your third blender or fourth toaster?  I believe I have the perfect solution!  Intrigued?  Read on!
 
Since {date}, I have been self-employed as an Independent Longaberger(r) Sales Consultant.  If you are unfamiliar with our company -   Longaberger(r), through it's consultants, provides a large variety of beautiful and functional hand-made baskets, exclusive pottery, wrought iron pieces and home decor items - in a wide range of prices.  Our products are perfect for the couple just starting out, or for the couple that has "everything".
 
A "Bridal Shower Registry" with an Independent Longaberger(r) Consultant works almost the same as those in retail stores.  (We can also do a registry for wedding gifts!)  First, we set a date, which all guests interested in purchasing an item must contact me by.  You compile a list of all the products you'd like to have, we mail your registry form to your shower guests, and as they purchase certain items, I cross that item off your list.  I will also send you a gift card stating the item purchased and the giver's name.  So what's the difference?  Well, everything is shipped directly to you, you receive any host benefits that may apply, and no one has to go to the mall!  Doesn't that sound fantastic?
 
If you are interested, please feel free to contact me at your earliest convenience.  I would be happy to come to your home or office to show you our catalog and a sampling of our products.  Should you already have a consultant, be sure to contact her/him so that she/he can assist you in setting up a registry.
 
I'm proud to be a part of the Longaberger(r) family and I just know you will love our products as much as I do.  Just think, not only will  you be getting items that are beautiful, versatile, and different from the usual, but also, you will be starting a collection to treasure for years to come.
 
Thank you in advance for your time and consideration.
 
Sincerely,
 
ANOTHER BRIDAL REGISTRY LETTER

KEYWORD:  Surprise Bridal Shower Invitation

I used this as a shower invitation - printed with a pretty font and some Nippert graphics on nice 8 1/2 x 11 paper.  I couldn't include the fonts and graphics, but you can use your imagination and come up with your own design.  Since it was a surprise, a regular invitation was sent to the bride to be -- and it was her mom's job to be 'excited' to go to a Longaberger Show and get her to go!! 

This is a Longaberger Basket & Pottery Shower for Jane Doe.

 

Because Jane loves Longaberger products, Angela Bards and Des Ganes are having a Surprise Longaberger Bridal Shower for her.

When: Sunday, September 12 at 1:30 p.m.

Where: 2105 Small Town Lane - Mytown

How: Rather than bringing individual gifts, we would appreciate it if you would bring a private contribution for the amount you would normally spend on a gift. Please place it in an envelope and bring it to the shower. The money will be combined and Jane will be able to make her personal selections for items that she will use in her new home. Jane will also receive the Hostess benefits, which means she can select an item of her choice for half price.

You may also make purchases for yourself during this shower. These sales will be added to the total of the shower and Jane will benefit additionally from the Hostess dollars she accumulates.

Recipe: On the enclosed recipe card, write your favorite recipe and bring it to the shower to be given to Jane. Write your name on the card, so she will think of you each time she prepares the recipe.

RSVP: Call Des or Angela at 261-0826 if you are unable to come. You may also let us know if you wish to take part in the gift - and how much.

Remember: This is a surprise for Jane. She will be invited to attend a regular Longaberger Show at the above time and date. Don't spoil the surprise!
