Once you finish sending out baby shower invites, you can move on to decor, games and general shower theme ideas. If you focus on invitations first and collecting RSVPs, you can ensure that you don’t over-buy or under-buy shower supplies down the road. This is an intimate and joyous moment for the mom-to-be so don’t forget to ask for help from another friend or family member when planning out this special day. Visit our detailed guide on baby shower etiquette to answer all of your baby shower questions.
Invitations are sent out three weeks before the shower. Store-bought fill-ins come in a wide variety of designs and are widely available, as are invitations that can be designed online or on your computer. However creative your invitation, don’t forget the essentials: the mother’s (or parents’) names(s), the shower’s date, time and location, and a request to RSVP. Gift information is never listed on the invitation itself, but it’s fine to mention “The nursery is blue and green,” or, “Jenna’s expecting a girl.” The host should be prepared to give gift suggestions, and nowadays it’s acceptable to include baby registry information on a separate enclosure.
This is a special occasion for the mom-to-be and her guest list is full of loved ones. Send invitations out early in order to account for guests who may be traveling to attend the baby shower. Don’t forget to have the mom-to-be register for gifts at the end of month four or start of month five so you can include baby gift registry information on the invitation.
