Making Personalized Baby Shower Invitations

Personalized invitations are actually easy to do with the help of your computer and color printer. You might need cardstock or photo paper when making the personalized invitations with the use of pictures. The great thing about making your own invitations is that you control everything in the invitation. There are many ideas one can consider when thinking of an invitation format or theme. One of the things that you need to remember when making personalized invitations is how to get your happiness across to the guests regarding the arrival of the baby.

Invitations that depict the pregnant mother with her partner can be one way of making personalized invitations. You can also make a montage of pictures taken from the first month of pregnancy to the latest month showing the progress of the mother during her pregnancy. If you are keen on having a picture on the invitation, baby's first picture (the ultrasound) can be used for the invitation. This works especially well if you have a 4D echo picture as compared to the traditional 2D pictures.

Another way of making beautiful personalized baby-shower invitations is to integrate the likes and preferences of the mother to be or both parents into the invitations. The gender of the baby can also play a huge role on how the personalized invitations will look like. Baby boys' invitations are usually made of sports equipment and baby boy colors while baby girls' personalized invitations are more on the pink or other girly color side along with ribbons, bows and lace.

These personalized baby shower invitations' ideas can also be used in the theme of the event itself. These kinds of invitations shows the love, caring and thought that has been put into making the big event a memorable one. Personalized baby shower invitations may also turn out cheaper than having the invitations customized by a store that specializes in stationery.
