How Web Baby Shower Works

how to have a baby shower onlineHow To Have A Virtual Baby Shower Online? Read “How Web Baby Shower Works”!

Web Baby Shower is designed to make it easy for you to have a virtual baby shower online. Here’s how Web Baby Shower works:


    1. Web Baby Shower is a unlisted, virtual baby shower website service provider. Unlisted means that only you will be given the link to your Web Baby Shower, once it is set up for you, and then you have control over with whom you share that link and can view your shower site. Why does this matter? Just think, do you want your baby shower to be searchable on google?
      We make sure this doesn’t happen to you.Please note that this means that you must wait for your Web Baby Shower to be set up by Customer Support and that you must open and read the “Your Web Baby Shower is Ready!” email when you receive it. The only way to find your Web Baby Shower, and to log into the Host Control Panel to personalize it, is to use the unlisted link that is included in the “Your Web Baby Shower is Ready!” email, either by clicking on it or copying and pasting it into your web browser address bar.

      You cannot search for your Web Baby Shower (because then everyone else would be able to) and you cannot log into your Host Control Panel through the main website. You must wait for, and then open and read the information in the “Your Web Baby Shower is Ready!” email. This is essential to establishing and protecting the privacy of your Web Baby Shower. If you have any questions, please contact Customer Support before signing up

    • You can use the Guest List Manager here at Web Baby Shower, send an invitation yourself via email or share your Web Baby Shower URL link socially (or some people even mail invitations to online showers!)
    • You can use your Invitation Manager throughout the course of your online shower to keep everyone up to date
    • You can add and remove Guests as needed throughout your online shower
    • Web Baby Shower recommends sending an invitation or update message to your guest list at least once per week while your Web Baby Shower is active to make sure everyone has a chance to participate and to keep them updated regarding the online shower and pregnancy / adoptions!


    • You will be touched and amazed as everyone visits your Web Baby Shower and signs the Guest Book, plays games and joins in on the fun — and they will love viewing photos and helping out by shopping from your gift registry links.
    • It’s easy for your guests to participate since they can view the photos and check out the gift registries without having to create an account and they can play games or sign the Guest Book by logging in with their favorite social media account.
    • If you decide you need a more watchful eye, you can always add Guest List and Invitation Code protection through the Host Control Panel.
    • If you realize your security is keeping everyone out, just log in to your Host Control Panel to remove it.


  5. GIFTS:  How you want to handle gifts is entirely up to you and the expecting parent(s), if you want to do gifts at all.
    • We have a dedicated Gift Registry Links page for each shower.
    • Most hosts simply list the stores where the expecting family is registered.
    • If the expecting family is not registered or does not want gifts, you can either turn the Gift Registry Links page off entirely or choose to put a message with general gift ideas or alternate instructions.
    • Some hosts go to lengths to have everyone mail a gift by a certain date and make the expecting mom promise to not open anything until the date of a planned live chat or other “real time” party.
    • In truly exceptional cases, some hosts even have the guests send gifts to them and then they re-ship everything to the expecting mom.
    • Other ideas include having the expecting mom taking a photo or video whenever she receives a gift in the mail and opens it, and then posts the video or photo to Web Baby Shower with a Thank You note to the giver in the caption.
    • Please note that Web Baby Shower provides tools for hosting a long distance, virtual baby shower website; we do not in any way provide gift purchasing or delivery services.
    • Please see the Gift Registry Links Manager Help page for more information.


That’s all. Yes, it is as easy and fun as it sounds!
