Importance of Invitations

Are invitations really that necessary when planning parties and events? Isn’t it enough already to just give people a phone call and tell them that they have been invited to an event? Well, let’s find out.

  • First of all, invitations help set the overall tone of the event. With invitations, it gives the reader an idea on what to expect from the event that they have been invited to. If the design on the invitation makes it look extravagant, then the invitee can already anticipate that the event will also be an extravagant one.
  • Unlike doing it through the phone, invitations are much more informative. It may seem ironic but it’s actually true. With phone calls, the host may tend to forget a few details regarding the event, whereas invitations contain all the information that an invitee needs to know about the event.
  • Invitations are memorable and can be treasured by the invitee. But this may still depend on the quality of the invitation. Thankfully, the invitation designs in our website are very creative, we guarantee that the recipient/invitee will keep them as a souvenir from the event.

Different Types of Invitations

It’s no surprise when we say that there are actually different types of invitations, and these different types depend not only on the type of event it is being used for but also on how the invitation being prepared. Below are a list of the different types of invitations.

  • Handmade Invitations. From the name itself, it is already very clear that these invitations were done exclusively by hand, all text written by hand and all illustrations were drawn by hand. This is probably the most tedious among all the other types of invitations since it really requires a lot of precision and you cannot afford even the slightest mistake.
  • Electronic Invitations. We wouldn’t actually say that this is the exact opposite of handmade invitations given that while these are not handmade, the reason why they are called electronic is because they are sent directly via the Internet. Today, there are various websites that offer to make electronic invitations, and all that’s needed from you is to add the recipient/s and your personalized message.
  • Wedding Invitations. Obviously, this is the type of invitations specifically intended for wedding ceremonies. Wedding invitations will always have a formal style—unlike other types that can either be formal or informal—and will come in different colors and themes depending on the motif and preferences of the hosts. Most wedding invitations include a separate RSVP card with its own envelope and is used by the invitee to confirm whether or not they are able to attend the event.
  • Party Invitations. As opposed to wedding invitations that are always in the formal tone, party invitations are—on the other hand—informal. This type of invitation can be used for all sorts of parties which include birthdays, baby showers, graduations, and many more. Since party invitations are informal, they can either be serious or they can also be funny. And unlike wedding invitations that come with a separate reply card, party invitations simply include the host’s contact details and encourage the invitee to make their confirmation through the phone.

Formal vs. Informal Invitations

  • While both formal and informal invitations contain the name/s of the event organizer, formal invitations should also include a logo of the organizer.
  • Formal invitations should use a neutral tone while informal invitations can be written with a more personal tone.
  • Formal invitations provide specific details regarding the event, while informal invitations simply explain why the event is being held.
  • Abbreviations should not be used in formal invitations and the dates should always be written in letters, while abbreviations and numerical dates are accepted in informal invitations.
  • Formal invitations should always indicate the dress code and/or the motif of the event.
  • Formal invitations should include a separate RSVP card. While they are optional in informal invitation, the RSVP can be done through the phone or text message.

How to Write a Formal Invitation

  • When writing the dates of the event, completely spell out the date instead of abbreviating it. For example, instead of writing it as “Friday, March 9th,” you should write it as “Friday, the ninth of March.”
  • When writing the address for the venue, the same thing should be observed—absolutely no abbreviations. Instead of indicating the street address as “Madison Rd.,” you should always write it as “Madison Road.”
  • When writing the names of the invitee as well as the host, their complete names should be written; shortened or nicknames should never be used. If the invitee or host has a second name, it should also be completely spelled out.
  • Provide the invitee with all the necessary details about the event. Only if applicable, a program or a short description on the sequence of events should be included.
  • With regards to the RSVP card, indicate on the invitation how the invitee should respond and the deadline for their response.
