Select the Guest list and Send the Invites Ahead of Time

When it comes to the guest list, leave this up to the guest of honor (I might be speaking from experience here…!) But seriously, a mom-to-be doesn’t need to meet people for the first time at her shower. A baby shower should be an intimate celebration with the people closest to the guest of honor so everyone can truly celebrate. 

Furthermore, regarding invitation timelines, sending them about 6-8 weeks before the event is advisable. This generous window allows people time to adjust their schedules accordingly. In terms of RSVP, consider using technology-friendly methods such as virtual RSVPs or QR codes to ease the confirmation process. Embracing something like this expedites responses, removes the headache of the guest sending mail, and curves the need for prolonged follow-ups, ensuring a smoother planning experience, which is better for you!

Curating the Menu

Catering to dietary needs can be a breeze, not a burden. Here’s how to ensure a delicious and inclusive spread:

  • Venue Selection is Key: Choose a venue like Grazina that offers a menu that is primarily gluten free, with gluten free swaps available for items like pizza and waffles at-the-ready. This allows you to cater to different needs without individual requests.
  • Clear Communication is Essential: Include a line on your RSVP asking guests to mention any dietary restrictions. This simple step ensures a happy and well-fed guest list.

Capture All Those Precious Moments

Consider hiring a photographer to snap candid shots that’ll be cherished for years, even if it’s just for an hour! Moms are always the ones behind the camera, so give the mom-to-be a chance to shine in front of it for a change. At Grazina, we have a few photographers we work with and would be happy to take care of this for you, too.
