Make sure guests RSVP with the hostess. If you are hosting the baby shower, make sure that your return address labels list your address since you’ll be keeping track of the guest list. Alternatively, make sure your contact number is listed as the RSVP number on the baby shower invitation. You can use our article on how to address baby shower invitations to answer all of your questions on addressing, titles, and more.
This might sound like a rude or up-front question, but it is important because traditionally gifts were at the centre of the shower: they were basically the point of the thing! Friends and family would bring presents to help support the family as they welcomed a new child, providing much of the ‘stuff’ that babies need. Nowadays, many parents are in their thirties, mid-career and more stable than in the past, and so may not need a haul of baby things. Those in this situation might opt for a wishing well (cash gifts), a donation to charity in lieu of gifts, or ask for no gifts at all. Alternatively, many people do want or need gifts but would prefer to have a registry to ensure they get things they will use. Any of these options are fine, and as long as you are polite it is completely acceptable to let your guests know what your preference is.
What are you actually going to be doing at the party? Is it going to be planned out with games and activities? Is it going to involve a sit-down meal? Is it being held at a restaurant or in your backyard? The event might be on the formal side, or it might be completely casual and relaxed. Make sure your guests know what to expect! This will help them make decisions about their own behaviour: what they wear, how strictly they adhere to the start time, perhaps even whether they come at all.
