Mailing Timeline for Baby Shower Invitations

When throwing a baby shower, timing is everything. Whether it's a surprise soiree or a carefully planned party that the mom-to-be is in on, one of the most important things to decide is when to mail baby shower invitations. In general, baby shower invitations should be mailed approximately 2 to 4 weeks before the shower. This gives plenty of time for shower guests to purchase a gift and to make plans without having to cancel other commitments. If you have out of town guests, consider sending your invitations out a bit ahead of this time, potentially 4 weeks before the event. If guests will need to fly-in to be part of the festivities, even more warning is recommended.

InvitationBox.com offers a large selection of baby shower invitations to choose from. Our pre-printed invitations come in a variety of styles from classic ducks and baby blocks to contemporary patterns and designs. When ordering printed invitations, be sure to order in advance to stay on track with your baby shower invitation timeline and ensure guests have plenty of notice.
