My baby shower is on March 21st. Should I wait until late February to hand out invites? My sister and I don't want to hand them out too soon, out of fear that people will forget about them and/or lose them. What do you suggest?

4 weeks before is pretty standard. If you have people that need to make travel arrangements send them about 6 weeks ahead of time.

ditto what Mylene said, I also like having a "please RSVP by .... " on them that way if you haven't heard from someone by then you can call them and not feel weird about it otherwise you're often playing a waiting game to see if people are going to let you know they are coming or not etc.

I agree, 4 weeks is pretty normal. I just got the invitation for my shower a couple of days ago and it is on 2/27 so that is about right.

Yeah mine is March 14th and I think they will be sent out next week. I'd like to do a little longer than a month because a few of my friends need a month out to ask for the day off.
