WebBabyShower vs. Evite: Your Guide on How to Decide

There’s no denying that when it comes to planning events, sending digital invitations is easier (and cheaper) than sending out physical invites. 

You simply collect guests’ e-mail addresses, pick a cute design, send ‘em out and watch the RSVPs roll in. A website that specializes in cute party invitations like Evite might be your first stop, but if you’re looking to actually host a baby shower beyond just sending the initial invitation, there’s an easier way. 

WebBabyShower is the #1 industry leader in virtual baby showers – offering a complete baby shower experience, from set-up and beyond—and yes, we have dozens of adorably themed baby shower invitations for you to use! Our service goes beyond simply sending the online invitations – which is why we’ve decided to compare WebBabysShower with Evite – so that you can see the differences head to head, and decide if our Evite alternative is right for you. 

Why Choose WebBabyShower

We know you want your baby shower to be absolutely perfect, and we want to help make that dream come true. With WebBabyShower, you get much more than a simple paperless invitation system. We provide you with a completely customizable virtual shower, a gift registry page that supports unlimited registries, games, and so much more!

Here are just a few reasons you should choose WebBabyShower.

Connect Friends and Family Across the World

These days, the people we love are scattered across the country—sometimes even the globe! Obviously, when people live in different states and countries it’s difficult to get everyone together for a physical baby shower.

But, with a virtual baby shower with WebBabyShower, your world can feel a little smaller. Our virtual showers help you feel connected to all of your loved ones, both near and far. 

The collaborative and remote nature of WebBabyShower allows for a more inclusive shower where everyone can be involved and feel welcome, no matter where in the world they might be. 

Have an Easy Shower

Planning a baby shower can be stressful, but it doesn’t have to be! 

One of our biggest goals is to help you plan the shower of your dreams, with as little stress as possible. With WebBabyShower, everything is in one place: your gift registry, your guest book, baby shower games, RSVP tracking, dedicated pages, an interactive and collaborative gallery, plus those customizable baby shower invitations that you’re looking for. 

WebBabyShower is easy to access and use for both hosts and guests. To attend your shower, all your guests need is the URL – which is unique and customizable when you use WebBabyShower for your party. There’s no pesky sign-up for guests, which makes it simple for them to join the fun.

Extend the Celebration

A baby shower is such an exciting event – so why limit a joyful, important milestone to just one day? With WebBabyShower, you get the unique ability to allow family and friends to get involved during the pregnancy, birth, and beyond. An invitation-based service like Evite limits participation, while WebBabyShower allows you to extend the fun and celebration for as long as you’d like to keep your site active. 

During pregnancy, upload bump pictures and provide baby updates that your guests can follow. Before your baby shower, use WebBabyShower to send customizable invitations and track opens—we even support Facebook invitations! 

On the day of the shower, invite guests to play fun games and sign your guest book. And once the baby arrives, use the gallery feature to upload photos and provide milestone updates.

Have a Real Party Instead of Just Sending an Invite

All babies deserve to be celebrated, and mom-to-be deserves to be pampered and surrounded by love! That’s why baby showers are such a joyous occasion for everyone involved. 

When you choose Evite, the main thing you’re getting is virtual invitations—which is great, but it ends there. With WebBabyShower, you get so much more than just invitations. You get a guest book, games, the ability to upload photos, and an entire website dedicated to the baby shower. It’s definitely more of a celebration!

WebBabyShower was built with parties in mind. We want to help make every baby shower an exciting, joyful celebration of that beautiful baby (or babies!). When you choose WebBabyShower, you’re choosing the #1 industry leader in virtual baby showers. Baby showers are what we specialize in—and it shows!

Be Unique 

With Evite, you get a randomly generated URL that looks like a code and is hard to remember. With WebBabyShower, you get your own dedicated URL that can look like anything you want!

This is ideal for a few reasons: guests and hosts alike will remember it, it looks nicer and cleaner on an invitation, and it is more like an actual party invitation and less like a meeting link! (I think we can all agree we’ve had enough Zoom meeting links to last a lifetime.)

Multiple Events All in One Spot

Why limit the celebration of a new baby to just a baby shower? WebBabyShower’s events page allows the host to show guests more than one event. With Evite, you’d need to send new invitations for every event you host! This makes hosting multiple events easier.

For example, if you’re planning on having a gender reveal, a baby shower, and a sip and see once the baby arrives, WebBabyShower organizes your events into one place. This makes it a fantastic Evite alternative and also a great substitute to other services that are invitation-based and are limited on what they can do to accommodate multiple events.
