By On Apr 12, 2018 Invitation
In an effort to beat the clock, showers are usually given four to six weeks before the baby’s due date. Parents who receive gifts in advance of the birth have the advantage of knowing what additional items they’ll need to buy or borrow. However, showers can also wait until a few weeks after the birth. In fact, some expectant couples prefer to defer receiving gifts until after the baby’s arrival.
Specify if you are having a boy or girl (optional). If you would like your gifts to follow traditional gender color schemes, be sure to include in your invitation whether you’re having a baby boy or a baby girl. The babys gender is usually revealed at the end of month four or start of month five during a pregnancy, so this information will likely be present before sending out invites.
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.
