One of the first things to set the mood and style for a baby shower is the invitation your guests receive. Luckily the Internet is full of selections, making it unnecessary to leave the comfort of home when shopping for this item.

Casual or formal, cute or elegant, we've looked high and low to turn up the best baby shower invitations available online. You'll find a wide selection of invitation styles and prices in the list of links below. There are even a couple of choices for invitations printed on chocolate bar wrappers. That's what I call a sweet invitation!

This collection leads to sites that have at least several choices to help make your shopping more efficient. All of these invitations can be personalized, and some companies will even do the work of addressing and mailing them for you.

Invitations should be sent 4-6 weeks prior to the shower. Don't forget to include the following information:

  • Name of guest of honor
  • Date
  • Time
  • Place
  • Whether it will be a surprise.
  • RSVP date and phone number or return card.
