All too often, people don’t apply any real thought to what they want their invitation to say. They’ll simply give up. The natural go-to is to put a time and date of the event, and maybe add an RSVP. But usually only if they have to know the number of people coming for headcount purposes. But putting some energy into how you word the invitations can truly make your party pop. It magically turns it into a coveted event.
Ready for some great party advice, start with fabulous invitation wording. Parties are planned to celebrate something, right? Birthday parties, Christmas and New Year’s parties. We even have Halloween or Wedding parties. All designed to celebrate the big things in life. When you’re planning your event, one of the key components to almost all of them is the invitation. And while that may seem the easiest part of the party to plan, the invite can actually make or break your event.
Dear party planners, as you pick your invitation find inspirational wording to go with it. Your layout will be inspired by your words and will add your special touch.
There are a few extra tips and tricks we like to keep in mind when selecting invitation wording. The world of stationery has a few etiquette rules and guidelines that we think are important to consider. We want to avoid making any notable faux pas when inviting guests to your party.
You do need the time and date on the invite. You also want to include the location of where it will be. If you are having to reserve anything that requires an accurate count, include this too. But none of this means that your text has to read as dry as your Mama’s day old turkey. Quite the contrary, while you want the details to be clear, you want to encourage the invitee to engage.
When it comes to fun parties and celebrations, having a fun invitation sets the mood. Everybody knows that. Having a witty tone to your invites inspires people to expect a happy, cheerful party. If you’re planning a party specific to an event, using words that encourage that theme will capture their attention. While a certain amount of anticipation can be set with the kind of paper you send, it’s the words and layout presented that impacts the most. The wording that is chosen will ultimately have the most wow factor. Choosing the wording for your messages may not seem like it’s a very important thing to do, but it can make all the difference when it comes to how people expect your party to be.
