Continue reading below and let’s look into the anatomy of a perfect party invitation.
Putting the Right Words in Your Party Invites
As we mentioned earlier, an appealing design is good; but it is not enough. You need to put the right wording for that perfect invitation. Let’s take a look at the elements of good party invites.
The Host and Guest of Honor
Start by introducing the name of the host/celebrant and the guest of honor. If it’s a birthday party, you can write “It’s John’s Birthday!” at the top part of the invitation.
If the host is different from the celebrant, you also need to put his or her name. You can write “Mr. and Mrs. Cullen request your presence on their daughter’s 18th birthday celebration.”
After writing the important names, indicate the reason for the occasion. You can put specific details like the birthday of the celebrant. You can also write the number of years if the occasion is an anniversary.
The Date and Time
Now that they know what the event is all about, you can write down the time and venue. The key is to be specific. Indicate the exact date and time.
You can also include a timeframe like. This will help your guests manage their respective schedules. You can go along the lines of “Ruth’s birthday celebration is on Saturday, August 5, from 2:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.”
Now follow it up with the party’s venue. You need to indicate the complete name and location of the venue. Never assume that your guests already know the place even if it is a popular one.
You can write something like “Paul’s party is at Restaurant ABC, at 998 Atherton Place, Maintown.”
In the event that you wish to secure a definite headcount of the guests, save some space for RSVP at the bottom. Just write the name and contact details of the person they can RSVP to. You can put something like “Please RSVP to Dianne, 203-111-4444.”
Lastly, you can also include some additional reminders. In this portion, you can mention the dress code, if there is one. You can also write special instructions for sleep-overs and pool parties.
