You’re organizing a baby shower and it’s time to send out your baby shower invitations! This is your first concrete act of creativity, and you want to be make sure it makes a good impression on your guests – you want them to come after all! It’s the first indicator of what kind of baby shower you will be having, so you want to make sure it’s aligned with the theme you’ve chosen.
This depends on your guests. Do you see them all the time, and they need very little notice? Or are some coming from out of town? Typically, you want to give 4 to 6 weeks notice to your guests. This gives them time to make sure they’re available, to make travel arrangements if necessary, and to do some gift shopping.
There are essentially two options: Digitally or by mail. People are likely to pay more attention if they get it by mail, but a digital invitation is much quicker and more cost-effective.
Every baby shower invitation must include certain elements. These will prepare your guests adequately for the event to come, and will answer their questions preemptively, saving you a lot of time!
Design wise, you want to keep it as simple as possible. Yet, this is also the calling card for the event and the important information should be there. Decide accordingly.
