  • I would say anywhere between 2-4 weeks before the shower. 4 weeks would be the earliest I would send them and 2 weeks would be the latest I would send them.

  • one month before (save the date) and then invitations about 2 weeks before.

  • and the save the date could be just an e-mail and then send actual invitations in the mail 2 weeks in advance.

  • "YOU" aren't supposed to send out any invites. The person who is giving you the gift of a baby shower is. And it should be at least 4 weeks in advance. Especially if its in the warmer months.

  • anonymous. well my mother is throwing the shower and she has her hands full with my brother's graduation two weeks before the shower. So I am sending out the invites to help. I will be helping with the food and everything else. there isn't anything wrong with that
