Baby shower invitations are an exciting start to the planning process. Depending on the sex of the baby (if you know) and theme or season of the shower, you can be very fun and creative with your baby shower invitations.
Questions to ask yourself when you’re ready to start planning your invites are:
- Do we want to do a theme?
- How many people are attending?
- What types of things show mommy & daddy’s personalities?
It’s important to mail baby shower invitations 4 to 5 weeks in advance for your guests to have plenty of time to plan and shop. If any friends or family are out of town, you will want to do this even earlier. Make sure to include the following information on your invites:
- Name of hosts and mommy-to-be
- Date & location
- Driving directions
- RSVP & phone numbers in case of questions
- Registration Information
Even if you know friends or family that cannot attend, it is customary to send an invitation anyway. Make sure you aren’t leaving them out of your count.
Lastly, personalize your invitations with a photo. This will make the invitation itself a keepsake. For fun creation and personalized invitations, Lifephoto will take you through the steps to planning your baby shower invitations today!
