The bride-to-be, Kacie, was having a personal, non-traditional bridal shower, but her conventional grandmother insisted on hosting. The invitation was serving as the first impression and needed to bridge the gap between the traditional parties of yesterday and the informal gatherings of today.

The solution embraces the opportunity created by these contradictory expectations. The formal, multi-piece invitation and host acknowledgement please the traditional audience, while the mirror-like design and playful copy-writing highlight the contrast between the shower and bachelorette party.
