First time planning a baby shower...

Anyone have an opinion on a good amount of time before the shower to send out invites? I know the time for a wedding invite, but was wondering what you all thought would be good for a baby shower. TIA!

Re: First time planning a baby shower...

  • Three to four weeks is plenty of time. I'm throwing a baby shower July 31st, and I'm mailing my invites out July 5th.

    Ditto...some people will say as early as 5 or 6 since it's the summer, but I'm afraid of things getting lost, misplaced, or forgotten. 

     Ironically, I'm hosting a shower the same weekend (Aug 1), and will send my invites out the end of next week.

  • Ok. Mine is July 24, so I guess I'll send them out pretty soon. Thanks for your opinions.

    The shower I'm planning was originally the 24th, and I'd planned to have the invites out by June 30th, but I think as long as you get them out by next Friday, you'll be good to go because that's still three full weeks.  

  • I threw my cousin a shower and sent out invites 4 weeks in advance with a RSVP deadline of 1 week prior to the shower.
  • I just gave one for SIL and sent mine out 5 weeks ahead so ppl could RSVP - but ppl are still from the stone age and do not care about RSVP-ing so you must call them too! GL with yours ;)
