You’re planning a baby shower and need to send invitations, but what do you do about the wording? It can be one of the biggest challenges because you want something cute and catchy, but definitely not corny. 

Whether the happy mother-to-be knows that she’s expecting a baby girl, a baby boy, or it's going to be a surprise, we have a few fun samples of baby shower invitation wording that you can use. You can also adjust these to fit an invitation for a Sip and See.

What to Include on the Invitation

Writing an invitation is rather easy, especially for a baby shower because they're not very formal. Include all of the details your invited guests need to know about the party. It will help them decide whether or not they can attend and how they can ​RSVP.

The details to include

  • Guest of Honor
  • Date
  • Time the shower begins
  • Time the shower will end
  • Location with an address and directions.
  • How to RSVP such as a phone number or email address. You can include a response card if these are formal invitations, but baby showers tend to be more casual.
  • The theme of the shower, if it applies.
