Creating the Baby Shower Guest List

Babyshower guest listTo have the best fun you need to have your best people with you. All the people that make you happy.

It’s tempting to include everyone Mom-to-be knows for the big celebration but we know that the most important component of a great babyshower is inviting the right people.

Think about who cares for Mom-to-be the most, who is the best fun, who likes to help get everyone joining in, who likes doing the dishes afterwards.

Include all your ‘most important’ people first to create the best guest list.

When you’ve decided on your list, we’ll help you to choose the right baby shower template for your invitations.
