Choosing Custom Baby Shower Invitations
Add images of the expectant couple to the card or opt for the provided icons to help set the mood. Fonts and text help set the tone. Select a traditional block print for a classic event or a font with lots of curls and personality for a more laid-back party. The color, background, and size of the invitations help achieve a specific look.
When to Send Out Custom Party Invitations
Most baby showers take place around the sixth or seventh month during pregnancy to help give the mom time to gather additional items needed before delivery. Invitations should go out at least four weeks ahead of time to give everyone time to choose gifts and arrange to attend, so plan on sending the invitations during month five or six.
What to Include on Baby Shower Cards
When creating custom shower invitations, include several key components to help make the party as memorable as possible. Be sure to include the mother’s or baby's name so guests can opt for personalized gifts. Knowing the gender of the baby may help guests know what types of clothes to purchase, so include this if the parents don’t mind. Other text that provides useful information includes the due date, location of the party, a gift registry information, and RSVP details. less
