Figure out who's coming. Get that guest list going. Ask the wedding party. Ask the mother of the bride. Ask the person of honor. Ask the couple, if this is a couple's shower. Get a final guest list everyone can live with. And get the addresses, like now. Hunting down addresses for people you don't know is all kinds of not fun, so ask for those with everyone's guest lists right off the bat.
In some cases, it's appropriate for all guests to pick up a portion of the costs for a shower. For example, an invitation to a restaurant bridal shower might read, "We'll celebrate with a Dutch lunch (entrees cost about บ), followed by cake and champagne in the garden." A spa invitation might read, "We've got the room reserved at XYZ spa. Call the spa directly to book your appointment. Instead of a present, please bring ษ to pay for the bride's treatments and send her on her way with a deluxe spa gift certificate."
