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.
Basically, who do you want to celebrate with? Baby showers are traditionally attended only by women, but many people now opt to include men, couples and families in the festivities. Regardless of the gender of those attending, consider whether the shower will be an event with relatives, friends or both. An event with your girls might be different from one with your nanna, aunts and little sisters.
