Sample Invitation Letter (Email) for a Baby Shower

Inviting guests for a Baby Shower can either be formal or informal. If the shower is being planned for someone within an official context, you may want to have some formal invitation letters. In general however, a simple email may do the trick. The advantage of an email is that it is easier to coordinate the RSVPs.

There are many online electronic invitation cards or e-vites that can be used to invite your guests to a Baby Shower. I suggest that you use one of those. If however for some reason, you believe that your guest would prefer a personalized email then find a sample invitation letter below.
