Question ONLINE baby shower/registry websites?

Hello, I am preparing to do a baby shower for a dear friend. it is her 5th baby, and she has some stuff but we want bless her as she has given so much away to other mamas.

She is expecting a girl.

I want to do something like evite to invite people so I don't have to pay postage. we will also post the event at the church we all attend. Also I wanted to make it possible for her away family to participate.

What websites do you recomend that are free to have a baby shower?

She will be registering for some cloth diapears online, she likes kissas. and your regular walmart/target.

So would be nice if I can put the info for her registry on the website too.

Thank you!

K

For something like that you might try just put everything in a blog and then have you as a contact person to remove things from the list. That is if you want everything in one spot.

There is also this if you prefer: http://www.myregistry.com I used it with my son but not many people purchased off of it.

On the Amazon baby registry you can add stuff from other websites as well. Also, I just heard someone mentioning that they did a Skype shower because the non ti be lived out of town. The family sent the gifts to her and then watched from Skype as she opened them.

I had an amazon registry and it was very easy and definitely free.

Re: ONLINE baby shower/registry websites?

thank you for the ideas! My friend is not big on registry and gave me a list of things, one of which is chineese prefolds... I want to mention that in the invitation, is there a good store that sells these for reasonable price? I think a lot of the mamas with paper diapers are going to raise a few eyebrows at the cost of new diapers.

Thank you again.

I used myregistry.com and LOVED it!! You can attach it to Target and Babies R Us registries which was awesome. People really seemed to like the option of buying online or going to a store like Target and buying in person. I had zero issues with the site.
Best wishes!
