Make it more creative and fun by having a fun invitation to send out through the mail, social media, or in an email. If you think you need some assistance in crafting your gender reveal invitation, we suggest reading more so you can learn our tips and tricks!

1. Lay Out the Design Elements of Your Invitation

Perhaps you would like to incorporate a theme for your gender reveal party. List down what you want to feature may it be diaper designs, underwater, or safari. This will help make your party more fun and lets guests see a sample of what to expect during the gender reveal. You could even use baby shower invitations as a guide when creating your gender reveal invitation.

2. Choose Neutral Colors

When we say neutral colors, we don’t mean bland colors like beige, gray, or black. What we mean is to use colors that are not correlated to a specific gender like pink for girls or blue for boys. We suggest using colors like gold, white, or yellow OR have an equal mixture of blue and pink to balance the designs out. We even have baby invitations available for you to use. These have pastel colors that are dainty and pleasing to look at that very much resemble the presence of a little bundle of joy.

3. Use a Language that the Recipient Understands

For families that speak multiple languages, creating multi-language invitations can be a possibility. Make sure your local guests are given invitations that are in the language of your location and give a separate one for out-of-town visitors. May it be Spanish, Chinese, or French, catering to your guests’ needs adds a special touch to your party card.

4. Send a Thank You Card After the Event

It is great to be surrounded by people who are just as excited to meet your expected baby! It’s heartwarming and makes having a child all the more exciting. Once your party is done, take note of who helped out in the preparation, and to who was present. Show your gratitude and appreciation by sending out a thank you card. This will warm their hearts to see that their mere presence is a great blessing to you and your family.
