What information to indicate in the invitation?
Even if it is tempting to send a quick text message or post a few pictures on the networks to announce the birth of your baby, a paper version is always more appreciated. You can indicate your baby’s full name there, especially if mom and dad want to keep different names.
Do not forget to add the date of birth of your baby but also, if you wish, his weight and height. It is also fun to add the time and place of birth. Finally, you can put the name of the parents but also of the brothers and sisters.
What is best to avoid on the birth announcement card?
If you have created a birth list, avoid mentioning it on your invitation. Rather, the objective here is to announce the birth of your baby without asking for gifts.
Also, do not describe how the birth went. There are some things that need to be kept personal. Finally, don’t worry if the messages on each of the invitations are not personalized.
