chalkboardbabyshowerinvitation

Todays modern age, Baby Showers are not just a woman only social event anymore. Liven up the excitement of welcoming the new addition with a co-ed baby shower to celebrate the parents to be! Not only is this a great way to welcome the new addition but will help prep the parent(s) to be!

We are here to help walk you though the ins and outs of hosting and attending a baby shower. From baby stationery suggestions to tips on hosting a shower, we’ve got you covered. Not only will the event be a joyous occasion for the honoree, but it will be fun and worry free for the host(s) as well!

Host Shower Planning and Guest list

It used to be the etiquette that parents-to-be should not host their own baby shower. Family, close friends or even co-workers would throw a baby shower for their loved ones. Nowadays some parents to be choose to throw their own baby shower, or they do this together with their family and close friends. 

Most showers are hosted prior to the baby’s due date, about 4-6 weeks before.

It’s best to check in with the parents to be to see what their schedule permits for a date and if there are any special guests who need to be in attendance such as parents, grandparents siblings etc. As host of the shower, you can limit the guest to close family and friends depending on the location and how many people it may accommodate. Once you have a date set, you can start working on the invitations.

What to include on a baby shower invitation

Baby shower invites should be sent out at least three weeks in advance using the guest list you’ve worked on with the parents to be. Baby shower invitation wording can be written from a cute rhyme to a simple invitation for a baby shower. Regardless of the form, be sure to include the following information for your guests:

Date &Time – Sunday, the twenty-eighth of July or July 28th

Location – address and or map/directions

The expecting mother or couple's name

Name of host(s)/hostess(es) & RSVP information

Registry information

Other tips for hosting a Baby Shower

Plan a Theme party: This will be helpful and fun for you and your guests to center the party around a particular color, pattern or décor. Use bright colors for the décor either it be with the use of flowers or a desert station as a focal point, the thoughtfulness will be shown.

Plan your Menu: As host make sure to feed your guests, especially the guest of honor. Select foods that are easy to eat such as salads, sandwiches’, vegetable dips etc. or even a favorite dish of the celebrant. Having a set menu that is easy to prepare will help you to avoid last minute stressors.

Plan something interactive: Keep your guests occupied with shower games, crafts for the parents to be, advice cards. Better yet, provide a prize for the winner of each game!

With a sunset ceremony set in a glass-enclosed chapel, the bride and groom made their union more unique by having their friend marry them. Rather than sticking to the traditional ceremony, having a  friend marry them made the sermon more personalized, funny and heartfelt for their closest loved ones.

Bridal Shower Host Planning

bridalshowerinvitations

Now a days a bridal shower can be thrown by anyone from a sister to an aunt or bridesmaid to a coworker. However, typically, the Maid of Honor or a group of close friends or bridesmaids will usually host the event.

Are you in charge of your friends shower and not sure where to start? No worries below are helpful planning tips on how to be the perfect host and make sure the Bride to be has a great time!

Pick a date: We can’t have a shower, without the Bride there, right? Showers are usually held anywhere from a couple months to a couple weeks before the big day. Be sure to check in with the bride to see what dates are available in her schedule so that you can plan accordingly.

Pick a Theme & plan it out: Decide what type of shower you would like to hold. Weather it be an afternoon tea at a restaurant, a garden party at a home or an evening soiree, the possibilities are endless. Once you have chosen the theme, then you and your other co-hosts can set up schedule to brainstorm the menu, decorations and budget so you can assign each person with a tasks so that everyone will know their part for the day. *Helpful tip - check out our free printables section for DIY items such as drink flags, cake flags, place cards and more, we're sure  
will come in handy when planning a bridal shower.*

Guest list & Invitations: Those who are invited to the shower should also be invited to the wedding. It’s okay to ask the bride to help with the guest list or you can also check in with the Mother of the Bride. Invitations should go out to guests 4-6 weeks in advance, especially if inviting guests who are not local. The style of invitations can reflect the theme of the party and can be anywhere from casual or elegant. The choice is yours as the host!

Shower Gifts: Be sure that the Bride & Groom are already registered prior to the shower as it is acceptable to provide this information on the bridal shower invitations

One thing is for sure, the bride will be grateful for the wonderful people she has surrounding her that day to celebrate her new adventure. Shop our Love vs. Design Bridal Shower and Wedding Shower Invitations for your Bride. These are inspired by a variety of mediums which span both modern and vintage to fit any theme and will make a lasting impression on your guests.
