When creating your baby shower invitation, the baby shower wording is the most important part that you need to plan.
A baby shower invitation is more than an invitation for an event. It also serves as a souvenir for the party. So creating the perfect invitation involves making it informative yet creative.
Details to Include
You need to make sure that you have all the details correct. Make sure that you have the following correct up to the minute details:
- the mom’s full name,
- the exact date of the baby shower or party,
- the exact time,
- the venue of the event,
- the color scheme of the party (that may also give away the gender of the baby)
- any other important details about the venue.
- You should also include an RSVP to confirm their attendance and if they would want to ask any questions about the party.
- when your registered for gifts
Add Clever Wording or a Dedication
Aside from all the baby shower wording which includes the basic information about the baby shower party, you can add a short dedication.
Here are some popular dedications:
- “Heard the forecast? A baby is predicted. But first there will be a shower! Please join us at a Baby Shower in honor of…”
- or something as clever as “Let us shower her with love …”
- A personal poetic dedication from the parents can also be placed instead of a generic message, like, “There once was a time when we all heard her say, I’m done, that’s it, two kids, call it a day. But now that expression “I’m done” is the past. There’s gonna be another boy, will this be the last? Join us for a surprise lunch to honor Beth.”
Add Some Images
Now that your the baby shower wording is done. It’s time to pick out baby themed images like a stork carrying a baby in a diaper, baby rattles, balloons, or ribbons.
If the couple is expecting a girl, you could add girly images like ballerina or dresses. If they are expecting a baby boy, then maybe use baseballs, footballs, or cars.
The color of the invitation usually varies in such a way that pink invitations are for girls and blue for boys.
But if the gender of the baby is not yet known or a secret, then the invitations could be in green or yellow to denote a neutral tone.
The invitation envelopes usually match the color of the invitation enclosed.
That’s it. Simple right?
