I've never been to a baby shower, so I don't know what the true etiquette is regarding the invitees....So, I'm wondering if it's allowed/ok to invite relatives/friends who live in other states, who you know won't/can't come to the shower?? Or is that a no, because it's tacky and makes it seem like you are selfish and only are expecting a gift?? I am such a newbie to this...I can honestly see both sides to the spectrum. Any answers will be appreciated! Thanks ladies!!

I searched the web for this, and found the following answer.

From Creative Baby Shower Ideas:
This is a question that gets more of a case by case basis for an answer. It depends on the relationship and if they are close enough to want to receive an invitation to the baby shower. The best thing to do is call and ask if they would like to receive an invitation to the baby shower or not. If they are far enough away that they cannot attend and you don't feel comfortable calling to ask them or feel that they would have a bad reaction to receiving an invitation, then a baby announcement is the perfect thing to send them once the baby arrives.
