The invitation is more than just a practical way of dispersing the who, what, where, and when but conveys the theme, formality, and general demeanor of the party.
In a time where electronic invitations are getting increasingly popular, your gorgeous custom invitation will be even more valued.
And before we continue, let me mention how cheesy and inappropriate it is to send a baby shower e-vite. First of all, not all of the invitees will have access to a computer. Most showers have a combination of young friends and the full gamete of family members. I know there are some hip grandmothers out there that are "silver surfers" but the majority still prefer the old fashion paper invitation.
Now that we have established that the paper invitation is the way to go- let's get a feel for the extraordinary selection of baby shower invitations.
