so there are a couple big ticket items that i'm needing for the baby. my mother says that she has never seen on invitations saying something about pitching into a group item(s). i'm not sure i have either. my concern is that no one will pitch in for the big items i'm needing. have you done that ? how was the wording and what was the result? my mother said she would buy the item but i don't want her spending all her money since she has no income coming in at all. plus she is already giving me the baby shower.
also should i register or just make a list of items needed so they can buy the items used.

At my shower, my SIL, my mom, and about 5 close friends went in together and got me a stroller, bassinet, bath tub, crib and crib set and a bunch of bottles and clothes. I didn't know they were doing it until after the fact, but tell some people who are close to you about your idea, that way if they do it they will still be spending the same amount and you'll get what you need. And what I did after my shower was over I took back items I had doubles and triples of and bought his car seat and swing.

It would be poor manners to put that on the invitation. I'd have your mother, sister or best friend spread the word to others attending the party. Also, see if you can put gift certificates on your registry & don't include a lot of unnecessary little stuff. That way, people can figure it out for themselves.
