As long as she’s hosting, will be handling the RSVPs and all the planning, I don’t think physically mailing them yourself is a big deal.

Agree. I think it’s fine, especially assuming the shower is not being hosted at your place, and that somewhere on the invite it says she is hosting it? Of course yeah, it’s not ideal to have to do work for your own shower, but I think that’s great that you are being sympathetic towards her situation and willing to help, even though you also probably have a lot going on in your life!

As long as the RSVPs are going to her and she’s hosting, I see no problem with helping her out.

I would put her name/address as the return address though.  That way, no one will even know that you did the stuffing and mailing for her!

@Mrs.KMM: Agreed.  People won’t even know you helped. 

I also think that the OP doesn’t have to stress about the time line though, either.  The response time for showers is much tighter then for weddings.  I think a 2-3 week window is more appropriate.

I just sent out my own baby shower invites. My mom was in charge of them, and since she works and I don’t I offered to help. She bought the invites, hosted the shower, etc. so I figured it wasn’t a big deal for me to help out a little.

I agree as long as she is hosting and talking to people for the RSVP’s etc. I dont think that you mailing them is a big deal. And I can totally understand you wanting to get them out.
