If you have more than one host, be sure to list each host alphabetically (by last name). If you have a large number of hosts, consider printing the hosts’ names on the back of the invitation, as you do not want to draw attention away from the purpose of the invitation – celebrating the mommy-to-be!

Mailing & RSVP Timeline
Baby shower invitations should be mailed about approximately 2-4 weeks before your shower date.  If you will be including an RSVP date, set the RSVP date to 1-2 weeks prior to your event, based on your needs.
