If you’re wondering how to choose a baby shower invitation the most important rule is to bring to life the mom-to-be’s personal style. Our library of baby shower announcements are as darling as her impending arrival. If her style is more classic than cutesy, browse custom baby shower invitations from lifestyle brands, independent stationers, and even fashion houses via our hassle-free invitation maker. Choose runway-inspired florals from Oscar de la Renta, softly chic prints from Sugar Paper, curious cards designed by Mr. Boddington’s Studio, or the signature illustrations of Rifle Paper Co. You’ll find Anna Bond’s hand-painted botanicals, of course, but she’s also inhabited her woodland scenes with a treasury of storybook wildlife and other supporting characters.
One of the most important questions for many baby shower hosts “when to send baby shower invites? Baby showers are typically hosted around the mother-to-be’s sixth or seventh month of pregnancy, and we recommend sending out your baby shower invitation around four weeks before then. If you’re hosting around her sixth month, send invites during her fifth, and if you’re hosting the party around her seventh month, send invites during her sixth.
When designing your baby shower invitations there are a few of pieces of information that are helpful to include.
The best element of any baby shower or party is the people! You should always ask the parents-to-be who they would like to include on the guest list. This can be anyone from family and friends to neighbors and co-workers. Once you’ve nailed down your list, our useful attendance tracker will help you keep tabs on the RSVPs, manage the guest list, and collaborate on activities, games, and gifts.
After you’ve settled on the best design for your shower, our online design tool will help personalize the baby shower invitation templates to your exact needs. Customize your baby shower wording with an array of fonts and text colors and pick out a new backdrop or patterned envelope liner, too—there’s room for detail in every part of the invitation. If you have your own specific vision, feel free to upload your own design—you’ll still have access to our hosting tools. You can also integrate the showers registry into the event page, if you want to give your guests a jumpstart on the gift-giving.

Baby shower invitations are typically sent out by the host. This can be the parents-to-be or the loved one who is hosting the event. The RSVP information should include the host's information.
