When buying baby shower invites, you could pick up a pack of invitations at Walmart and be done with it. However, you might want to consider custom baby shower invites instead. Here are 5 reasons why.
Once in a Lifetime Celebration
If she’s like most women, your dear friend or family member will have only one baby shower in her life. We generally don’t hold baby showers after the first child.
There probably won’t be a do-over. You’ll want the most beautiful and unique creation possible in honor of this huge, life-changing event in her life.
Many moms keep baby shower invitations in scrapbooks or memory books forever. Someday, the child will love looking at his or her mom’s keepsakes from her pregnancy and first years of parenthood. This includes the baby shower invitation.
Coordinate Thank You Notes
I’ve always been a stickler for thank you notes. I think it’s vitally important to acknowledge gifts and thank the giver, even for gifts received in person.
Having a baby is such a stressful and exhausting time that like-minded new moms would surely appreciate having thank you notes ordered at the same time as their baby shower invites.
If you’re anything like me, you’re so used to typing everything that your handwriting has begun to suffer. I used to write very neatly in cursive and print. Unfortunately, I’m woefully out of practice now.
I used to enjoy handwriting letters and cards. Now, the thought of handwriting 10 or 20 invitations makes me cringe. I was thrilled when my kids got old enough to write their own thank you notes.
Creating custom baby shower invites online means no more hand writing the who, what, where and when, plus baby gift registration and RSVP information, on individual cards.
Because You Can

You can show your creativity by coming up with a unique design. If you’re not artistically inclined, you can use one of the dozens of available custom baby shower invitation templates.
