Shower Etiquette

I’m not sure who I should invite to the baby shower; who would normally attend?

Grandmothers of the baby and any other female family members are traditionally invited to a shower but after that anyone that you wish including friends of the new mother, any family members, neighbors, coworkers etc.

It would be as well to clarify with the guests that no additional friends should be invited by them.
You should also decide whether or not you wish children to be invited. It may seem ironic, but many people feel that it is not a good idea to have children at a baby shower due to likely disruption and even possible damage to furniture and so forth.
Unless the the event is a ‘surprise shower’ you should check the guest list with the expectant mother for her approval.
