When to send baby shower invites?
Think about the situation this way: A typical baby shower usually takes place around the sixth or seventh month of your pregnancy, therefore your baby shower invites can be sent out about four weeks beforehand. So this would be your five- or six-month of the pregnancy. If you sent them earlier than that then your guests might forget about it and if you send them a little later than that then they’re more likely to have already made some other plans.
Also, select appropriate baby shower wording for the invitations. You can go for inspirational quotes, rhyming words, and cute phrases that will add a touch of personalization to your baby shower invitations making them more perfect. You can also explicitly state on the invitations important things like if the shower is a surprise, not bringing the gifts, directions to the venue, the theme of the event etc.
