Baby Shower invitations

There's nothing more special than welcoming a brand new human into the world! There is no shortage of opportunities to celebrate, with new trends growing in popularity. Whether you are keeping with tradition and hosting a baby shower, going co-ed, or waiting to learn baby's gender we have invitations for any type of celebration.

This custom zoo animals baby shower invitation was designed for one of our family's newest arrivals. My cousin Jess and her husband Jon wanted to wait to find out if their baby would be a boy or girl, so they requested a simple zoo animals theme with gray color palette.

Email Affordable Wedding Invites for more information

We included an insert requesting books for baby - a perfect poem to include the important people in their lives, while adding our favorite books to their new family library.

Tips for Stunning Photo Invitations

Personally, I LOVE when couples want to use their engagement photos. Whether it is requested on a save the date or an invitation, I am always careful to be sure I am designing in line with the level of formality the couple wants. I encourage them to get the most out their photography, and of course I always request the photos come direct from the photographer so they can provide the best high quality image for our specifications.

Custom Photo Invitations

This square layered card features a silver backing, with a classic black and white photo, and a top layer of sheer vellum inviting guests to their celebration, all tied with your choice of ribbon. We have a wide range of layering card textures and colors to choose from. Contact Affordable Wedding Invites today to see how we can customize your ideas!

 Share Your Love Story!

Get 100 sets for $549.90 - Price Includes: Two-sided flat full color printed invitation with blank envelope on your choice of paper color - White or Ecru Smooth, Shimmer or Texture paper.


Consider cropping.

The photo you choose can set the mood. The way a photo is cropped also makes an impact. Photos cropped too close can pose a problem for production. Choose a photo that offers some space around your faces. Some styles offer options to include more than one photo, too.

Go full color for fun, or choose a monochromatic photo to make a statement. 

By simply changing the photo to black and white your invitation emits a more classic, sophisticated look. Like this Glam Frame Photo Invitation featuring a swirling border in your choice of foil color. Choose the design color to put your look to every part of the unique wedding invitation.
