60 Message Ideas for What to Say in a Bridal Shower Video Guestbook

The Celebrate Team

Picture this: you’re at a bridal shower and they’re asking everyone to leave a video message for the bride-to-be. Bridal showers are all about celebrating the bride-to-be with love, laughter, and well wishes—but just like when it comes to writing a message in a greeting card, we know how hard it can be to express all those feelings or even know what to say. We've got your back!

We want to help you make sure your video message for their digital guestbook hits all the right notes and becomes a piece of the bride's awesome adventure. 

While traditional greeting cards have always been the go-to choice for conveying your love and excitement, let's crank up the celebration a notch! Imagine the bride's face lighting up the next day as she watches a bunch of video messages from her favorite people, sharing stories, advice, and loads of laughter. In this tech-savvy era, embracing video messages as part of the bridal shower adds a dynamic and personal touch that simple ink on paper just can't capture.

Whether you want to share those tender, heartwarming moments or bring a dose of laughter with funny anecdotes, rest assured, we've got your back!

Why You Should Have a Guestbook at the Bridal Shower

When planning a bridal shower, often times the main focuses stays on the theme, decorations, bridal shower venue, bridal shower games, and food. But what about the guestbook? 

While you could opt for a traditional physical guestbook, why not spice things up with Celebrate.buzz's Video Guestbook

This digital guestbook allows you to easily collect video messages from all the guests, sharing their love, stories, and well wishes for the bride. And it's simple! Guests scan a QR code, which will take them to a Guestbook page where they can start recording their personal video messages, or upload clips from their phone. No need for them to download an app or create an account.

Then, when the event is done, the soon-to-be-bride or the host of the shower (maybe it's the maid of honor or the mother of the bride), can easily merge all the clips together into one final video montage, using our Editing Suite.

It's a modern twist on the traditional guestbook, and the bride will be thrilled to have the chance to cherish a collection of all the loving and heartwarming videos, long after the shower is done.

A traditional paper guestbook is a classic choice, but in this digital age, a video guestbook can add an extra layer of fun and uniqueness to the occasion. It's authentic, it's real time, and it captures all the silly, loving, and memorable moments and messages from a very special day. 

Frankly, it's not just a Video Guestbook, it also doubles as a meaningful and perfect bridal shower gift for the bride-to-be

Tips on How to Compose a Bridal Shower Video Message

Now, if you're unsure of where to start when it comes to crafting the perfect bridal shower video message, we have some suggestions: 

1. Start with a Friendly or Warm Greeting

If you have no idea where to start, you can always kick off your bridal shower message with a dose of heartfelt warmth. A simple "Congratulations, beautiful!" or "To the radiant bride-to-be" sets the tone for the love-filled message that's about to unfold. 

2. Recall a Special Memory

Remember that time when the bride saved you from that fashion faux pas? Or how you both embarked on a spontaneous road trip that turned into the adventure of a lifetime? Share these special moments in your message. A simple "Remember that time when..." can open the floodgates of memories and set a nostalgic tone for your message. 

3. Compliments and Well-Wishes

Now's your chance to shower the beautiful bride with compliments that would make even the sun blush! Tell her how she radiates happiness and grace, and that she's practically a walking sunshine. Add heartfelt wishes for the happy couple's wonderful journey ahead.

4. Words of Wisdom

If you're married, share a nugget of wisdom that's guided you in your own journey. Something like "Communication is the key, but laughter is the secret ingredient to a happy marriage" adds a personal touch of advice that she'll treasure.

5. Embrace Light Humor

Add a touch of humor to your message, the kind that would make her chuckle while reading it. A light-hearted joke or a wedding-themed pun can do the trick. Something along the lines of, "Remember, the groom's always right, but the bride's even righter!"

6. Highlight the Happy Journey Ahead

While the wedding day is a grand affair, the journey of marriage is where the real magic happens. Wish her nothing but the best and let her know you're there to support her through it all, with a message like, "Here's to a lifetime of love, laughter, and countless wonderful adventures together."

7. Express Gratitude 

Express how lucky you feel to be a part of her journey, and how her friendship has added a spark to your own life. "Grateful to have a friend like you to share in all the laughter and love."
