Is it weird to make baby shower invitations?

I really am short on money and husband and i like to draw...so we figured to save us some money since no one wants to help us with baby shower that we would just make the invitations. Does anyone think thats weird or awkward???

  • Nope. It's more personalized. Go for it!

  • Not wierd at all! I make all my own cards, invitations, etc. Better than "cookie cutter" things you get at the store! :-)

  • Why are you throwing yourself a baby shower?

    If noone wants to help with the shower then are you sure they will come?

  • I don't think it's wierd...handmade cards are more meaningful!


    And anon...I think we've been through this on here various times...it is a cultural difference as to who plans and pays for the baby shower. In some areas the friends of the mommy-to-be plan the party, in some areas it is more customary for the family to plan the party and in other areas it is more traditional if the mommy-to-be plans the party.  It's OK if everyone doesn't do something the same way as you.

  • thanks everyone i just wanted to make sure it wasnt weird or anything. and, the reason im planning it is because my mom was supposed to do it and me and her had a falling out and i just would rather do it myself that way i know its getting done. :( it kinda bites but, its ok i suppose.
