“Mary did a wonderful job with my virtual shower! I live in California but have family in Chicago and England so a virtual shower was a great way to be able to include long distance friends and family. I ended up having my baby early and Mary was very accommodating with last minute schedule changes and she even added a section to the website to include pictures of my newborn (still in the NICU at the time).
One thing she did that I really loved was to send out cards with baby shower themed questions, which everyone filled out and sent back to me. When we opened them all on the day of the shower it felt like playing a shower game with all my guests, even the ones that were only there virtually or couldn't attend at all. Plus the detail on the card matched the decorations Mary had sent me so we could hang them all up after opening.
I also think the long distance guests really appreciated the virtual shower because it allowed them to be involved in a way they wouldn't have been able to otherwise.” Amanda B., mom-to-be, California
"With friends and family living around the country, the virtual baby shower Mary hosted created the perfect personal and fun experience we needed to celebrate a good friend. Mary did a fantastic job planning – she thought of everything from creating a personalized theme, to coordinating the schedule, and organizing the gifts. It was so thoughtful and well executed – it made me forget about the distance between us!" Tracey M., baby shower attendee, Chicago
"It was perfect for out of town friends and family! It was a lot of fun and very interactive!" Meghan C, baby shower attendee, St. Louis
"After taking part in two virtual showers, I have to say it is 'the next best thing to being there'. Both situations brought the mother-to-be and the father as well, together with their loved ones from far away. It's a great idea and fun for the participants as well! I especially loved hearing the advice cards" Susan C., baby shower attendee, Chicago
"The best part of showers is enjoying the opportunity to see an old friend with whom you maybe haven't connected in recent years. But the cost and time commitment of travel sometimes makes attending impossible. This experience was an amazing opportunity to enjoy one-on-one time with an old friend who was living on the west coast while I was on the east. I actually got to chat with her about motherhood and different baby names--it was so lovely, and I enjoyed every minute." Katie S., baby shower attendee, Philadelphia
“We partnered with Virtual Showers to throw a bridal shower for our niece. What a huge success. Our family lives in 7 different states but we all gathered online to celebrate together. We had lots of fun watching our bride open gifts and share the usual shower chat. I sent online invites, mailed shower favors and treats before the event. We shopped and shipped our gifts to the bride ahead of time. Virtual Showers managed all the logistics; website development, programming and online hosting the day of the shower. Virtual Showers is the perfect solution to long distance family celebrations.” Deb C., bridal shower hostess, Michigan
"With my first pregnancy I found myself living across the country from my already spread out family. Sadly, all of us living in different states made it seem impossible to have a baby shower. The discovery of Virtual Showers made it possible to share all the excitement of our new baby with family & friends that we normally wouldn't have been able to connect with. Each guest was sent a card to send back to me with a special message for us and baby. The cards, decorations and individual attention I received throughout the whole process was so easy and fun! " Maureen P., mom-to-be, Colorado
"Maureen, my daughter, lived on the west coast, with family all on the east coast - how were we going to give her a baby shower? Mary came up with an incredible idea - a Virtual Shower.
A date was chosen and the shower was on. It was fun, interactive, a very positive experience. We played games with prizes, interacted with Maureen through Face Time/Skype and Maureen received beautiful gifts from her family and friends.
The possibilities for a Virtual Shower are endless, what a 21st century concept! Thank you Mary." Patricia C., baby shower attendee, Florida
"The virtual shower was a great way to celebrate with a good friend that unfortunately lives far away.
It was so fun and easy!" Gina H., baby shower attendee, California
