Putting your feelings into words can be rather hard at times. It might be a bit overwhelming to sit and plan your baby shower as t is. We are here to help you word your baby shower invitation. We are going to help make sure that your shower goes as planned and to ensure that you do not leave any crucial information out of your invitation.
Whether you are planning your own shower or you planning a surprise shower for the special mom to be, the suggestions mentioned below will help you find your way around the baby shower invitation.
Before you write your invitation, you need to plan what you want your invitation to say. What do you want to ask your guests for? Do you have the venue and date confirmed with the venue before you give your guests the invitation? Once you have all these answers, you can start to write out your baby shower invitations.
Seven things to include in your baby shower invitation:
- Highlight the moms name
and the baby’s surname.
This might seem like a basic step but a lot of party planners forget to add this very important notice. You need to make sure that the name of the mom to be is in bold for the world to see. You can also add ‘baby…’ and put the surname of the baby on the invitation.
If the shower is for the couple and not just the pregnant spouse, then add the name of the spouse as well.
- The gender of the baby if
you know it.
This step is entirely up to the parents of the baby. If they want people to know about the sex of the baby then add it into the invitation. If the parents want to keep the sex of the baby a secret, that is ok too. You just need to make sure that the parents are ok with whatever the decision is.
- Include the date.
There are a few dates that need to be made clear to your guests. Firstly, the guests need to know the date of the baby shower. Make sure that the date can be well read and it is visible. The invitations should be sent out about a month before the baby shower. This will give your guests a lot of time to make sure that the date of your shower is free. You are also going to want to include the RSVP date to make sure that you do not over cater or under cater for your guests. One last thing for this section is that you need to include the time of the event.
- Name the location and
provide a map or GPS co-ordinates to make sure that your guests can get there
Let everyone know the name of the venue that you are having the baby shower at as well as the physical address of the venue. If the venue provides you with a map or GPS co-ordinates, you are going to want to add that to your invitation.
- Tell everyone how to RSVP
and the date that they need to do this by.
Leave a name and number for your guests to contact so that they can let you know if they will be joining you for this monumental event. If you doing a digital invitation, then leave a link so that people can click whether they can come or not.
- Mention where your guests
can find your registry.
Add a link to your invitation so that your guests can go and look up your registry and what your wish list is for your baby to be. It is ok for you to ask your guests for certain things. Your guests want to help make this journey a little bit easier for you and we all know that even though they tiny little humans, babies need a lot of things in the beginning.
- Provide any additional
information that your guests might need to know.
Your guests are going to want to know any other important information such as if this is a surprise baby shower. Let your guests know the theme of the party and if there is a dress code. If you plan on playing games and need your guests to bring something for the guests, then this is the place where you ask them to bring the things you might need.
A baby shower is a joyous event that you are going to want to share with your friends and family. A baby shower is designed to shower the mom with love and good wishes. Your baby shower is going to be astonishing and now you are going to have a well written and informative invitation that is going to leave your guests wanting the party to be the second they read the invitation!
