How far in advance should you RSVP for a baby shower?
Time Frame. Traditionally, baby shower guests are expected to buy a present for the mother-to-be, so etiquette mandates that you send invitations anywhere between four to six weeks ahead of the party. This allows invitees plenty of time to RSVP and find an appropriate gift.
What is the etiquette for baby shower invitations?
To include on the invitation: the name of the expectant mother or parents; the host’s contact information and address, RSVP information, and reply-by date if necessary for party planning; and, if revealed, the baby’s gender. To not include: registry information.
How many guests should you have at a baby shower?
The average number of guests at a baby shower is around 20. This amount of people is easy to accommodate in a moderate sized rental area. Of course, this number fluctuates based on how large your friend and family circle is as well as the space available.
