Baby Shower Invitation Wording Samples

The baby shower invitation sets the tone for your shower, and therefore, getting the wording right is a must. There are many ways to word an invitation, especially if you are incorporating a theme into your shower. Read on for invitation wording samples suitable for many of today’s most popular themes.

What to Include on Your Baby Shower Invitations

All invitations must include: name of honoree (who is the mother-to-be unless it’s a couple’s shower, where both parents should be listed), date, time, location, name of host and RSVP information.

Although optional, the samples below all incorporate a short rhyme or verse related to the theme, as well as several wording variations for the main information. This is a fun way to tie in the invitations with your theme and get your guests in the mood for a great baby shower.

Couple’s Invitation Sample

Typically, couples baby showers are more casual in order to entice men to come. Following is a sample invitation with two different beginning rhymes.

Kate and John Smith’s
baby is on the way
Let’s get them prepared
for the big day!

or
Kate and John – always so cool,
We’ll see how they look
wearing baby drool!
Come help them get ready for these
things babies do,
Your guess is as good as ours –
pink or blue!

One way to celebrate your baby is to have a seasonal shower depending on what month you are due. For instance, a baby due in the fall could begin the invitation with:

Adding Another Pumpkin to the Patch!

If your baby will be born during spring or summer, consider beginning your invitation with: Come Celebrate a new little blossom.

If your baby shower will fall in the month of December, consider having a Christmas baby shower, with your invitation saying:

Deck the halls with bibs & bottles,
Fa-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la
‘Tis the season for a baby,
Fa-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la!

You could also consider a Valentine’s Day inspired shower in February with:

Diapers Galore Invitation Sample

Just because you need the essentials instead of cute and cuddly gifts for your baby doesn’t mean your baby shower invitations have to sound drab. Choose one of the following verses and your guests won’t mind picking up diapers and bottles instead of teddy bears and hair bows.

Bibs and bottles
Diapers and pins
A new little baby is where the fun begins!

or
Bottles and booties
and bibs and more,
let’s shower the baby
with gifts galore!
Please come to a baby shower for
Sally Jones
or

that our new baby brings

As long as you ensure the essential information is present on the invitation, have fun using a baby rhyme or verse to tie in your shower theme with your invitation wording. Your guests will appreciate the whimsical invitation, and you’ll have a keepsake perfect for your family scrapbook.
