Having a baby is a lot like getting married: lots of people do it but you want to make yours special. Obviously, your little bundle of joy is always going to be one-of-a-kind in your eyes and that means you want all of the celebrations around his or her birth to be special, too. One way to do that is by choosing unique or unusual invitations for his or her baby shower.
Most parents (or shower hosts) stick to traditional invitations – some shaped like bottles or strollers, others decorated in pink or blue depending on the sex of the baby. However, you do have options which can help set your baby shower invitations apart from the rest of the crowd.
Remember that no matter how unique your baby shower invitations are, you need to get them in the mail to your guests in a timely manner, particularly if they are already parents who will need to make babysitting arrangements for their own special bundles of joy.
Baby shower invitations are a classy, touching way to welcome guests to your upcoming event. With the baby's name, and often the guest's name, printed directly on the card, each guest can see that time and thought went into the planning of the shower.
Order personalized invitations from a print shop, or print your own on your computer. Your budget and talent in desktop publishing should help you decide which path to choose.
This is quite simply the easiest and fastest way to share personalized invitations with your guests. We offer a wide variety of invitation cards, often complete with matching envelopes, RSVP cards and thank you cards.
Personalizing the invitations can be done in two ways; after the baby is born, their name and a short verse are printed on the card along with the details of the event. This allows the baby shower invitation to double as a birth announcement, sharing the details of the new baby's arrival with invited shower guests. Before the baby's arrival, which is when most showers are held, the invitation is personalized with the expectant mother and father's names (or simply the mother's if it is a women-only shower).
We even offer personalized photo invitations, with a picture of the pregnant mother or new arrival on the front of the card.
Order your invitations about a month before the shower and check them over carefully when they arrive. Once you are sure the details are accurate, you can start addressing your envelopes.
