How to Choose the Perfect Baby Shower Invitations

This post is sponsored by Basic Invite. All opinions are my own. 

Pregnancy is full of not-so-fun things like swelling, morning sickness, uncomfortable sleep, and glucose tests. This means you totally deserve to have fun with things like shopping for baby clothes and planning a baby shower (or even better — having someone else plan it for you!). So whether you are planning a shower for yourself or someone else…how do you go about choosing baby shower invitations?

Basic Invite makes it so easy. So much so that I wish I had discovered it when I got married! It would have saved me so much time and energy on my wedding invitations.

Almost unlimited colors for baby shower invitations

Choosing your baby shower invitations with Basic Invite is as easy as picking out a design/template and customizing it just the way you like. You’re able to change the text and colors, and many let you insert photos. The best part? You can change the design elements on the card to over 180 different color options. This is so great if you’re planning a themed baby shower or if you know the gender of the baby.

And even better — Basic Invite is one of the few websites that gives you almost unlimited color options with instant previews online, so you can see what your invitation will look like customized automatically.

Hundreds of designs to choose from

Basic Invite offers hundreds of designs for baby shower invitations. I also love that you can filter your search results by gender, so it’s easy for you to choose the perfect invitations for baby girl shower.

This also helps if you have a theme! For example, my baby shower was woodland themed. You can use the search feature and search for something like woodland animals baby shower invitations. Or you can choose from the categories like “botanical,” “romantic,” “rustic,” or “vintage.”

Custom samples of baby shower invitations

This is such a game changer! Basic Invite gives you the option of ordering a sample of your baby shower invitations so you can see exactly what they will look like printed and get a feel for the paper quality before you officially order. That way, if you’d like a different type of paper or want to change the colors, you can! It’s always frustrating when you order invitations or cards and they don’t turn out the way you were expecting but you can’t order more because of money or time.

Baby shower thank you cards

If you’re anything like me, remembering to send thank you cards is such a pain! It’s not that I’m not grateful for the gifts I received, it’s just that pregnancy/mom brain is in full force. Basic Invite has quite a few invitations for baby girl shower that have matching thank you cards you can order. These are also customizable, so if you changed the colors on your invites you can do it for the thank you cards as well.

They even have tons of designs that include foil, which is available in gold, silver, and rose gold.

Envelopes are included with the cards, come in over 40 colors and are peel and seal so you don’t have to lick them and get that nasty envelope taste in your mouth!

They also have an address capturing service, which would have totally saved my butt when I was planning my wedding! Customers share a link on social media like Facebook or Instagram to request addresses from friends and family. The addresses then get stored on the customer’s Basic Invite account and can be selected during the design process. Basic Invite even offers recipient address printing at no cost on all Christmas card orders. Sounds too good to be true, right?!
