Appropriate wording for baby shower invitations can include formal wording that lists only the necessary details, a cute saying or an elegant poem, depending on the style of the baby shower. Invitations include name of the guest of honor, the time and date, the location and RSVP information.
If the host wants to include a poem or a verse in her invitations, she can write her own or modify a classic poem, such as "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star." The invitation can match the intended mood of the baby shower, as it's the first shower-related item the guests see.
Typically, the host sends out invitations at least four to six weeks before the baby shower, preferably two months beforehand. This gives the guests enough time to plan for the shower and shop for gifts. This is especially important if the host is inviting guests from out of town who need to make travel arrangements. RSVP information can include a phone number or email address. Some hosts include a reply card for guests to return.
If the baby shower has a theme or dress code, the host includes it in the invitations. If she has a gift registry, she should include registry information in the invitations.
