Baby Shower Online Planner
“Baby Shower Planning for Millennials!”
Back in the day, baby showers were thrown by friends, not relatives … men were never invited to partake in the festivities and computers and the internet barely existed, if they existed at all!
However, times have changed, and many parents-to-be, family members and friends are throwing baby showers, everyone’s invited and it’s even online! Baby showers are a celebration of life and family, and in fact, these days it’s not uncommon to have more than one baby shower, especially if the parents-to-be have a large family, co-workers, several close friends or even all of the above but long distance.
Whether you plan to host a traditional, in-person baby shower party, a virtual party, or both, Web Baby Shower recommends starting about 2 months before hand, with a solid four – six weeks of planning, making preparations, hosting an in-person party and/or coordinating a virtual baby shower.
What’s Expected: Traditional, In-Person Baby Shower Parties
Traditional, baby shower parties, in person, typically last about 2 – 3 hours and include mingling, food & refreshments, games and opening gifts. Most people who are familiar with baby showers will be familiar with, and expect, this format.
What’s Expected: Long Distance, Virtual Baby Showers
If you plan to throw an online baby shower, then it could last up to several weeks, depending how you to decide to let your guests participate. Online baby showers can include website features such as guest books, games, gift registry links, photo album, videos and so forth that guests can visit and participate in as they have time. An online shower can also include a live chat or video call via Skype, Google Hangouts or other similar services.
Most people are not familiar with the online baby shower format and you will need to guide your long distance guests through the process of participating in a long distance, virtual baby shower.
That is why Web Baby Shower is pleased to present this innovative, one-of-a-kind baby shower online planner that incorporates planning ideas and tips for traditional, in-person baby showers, virtual baby showers — and both together! “Baby Shower Planning For Millennials!”
