How to Sign a Bridal Shower Card to a Future Daughter-in-Law

Updated April 17, 2017

If you have been invited to your soon-to-be daughter-in-law's bridal shower, you might be wondering how to sign the card. It depends on what kind of relationship you have with her and how you want her to think of you. You can stay formal or you might want her to think of you as a new mother. Either way, you can be creative and show her how you feel about her.

Use your best handwriting. Write a short note welcoming her to the family. Let her know that you are there if she needs any help planning the wedding or in the days to come.

Write, "Wishing you all the best," before you sign your name.

Sign your name as Mrs. or Ms. and your last name. If this is too formal, you can use your first and last name.

Write a note with a personal joke in it that the two of you share. It can be a reference to something you did together that gave you both a laugh.

Write that you hope her wedding day will be great and perhaps mention the joys of a honeymoon before you sign your name.

Sign your first name with a smiley face.

Write a note recalling something about your soon-to-be daughter-in-law's personality and why you are happy she is joining the family. You can reference why she is a perfect match for your son, such as how happy she makes him or how you've never seen him so in love.

Write, "Looking forward to your bright future," before signing your name.

Sign your name as "Mom" or "Mother" instead of using your own name.
