Colorful Invitation Wording Ideas for Holiday Party
Regardless of your holidays party style, either totally casual or sophisticatedly formal, there's one 'got to include' element that every invitation should include – the type and purpose of the party celebration. It's a bit incomplete to simple ask your invited guests to, say, 'you're invited to my Christmas party'. Those who receive your invites will probably be unsure if they should bring food, gifts, how to dress, and even if children are welcome. A better option could be something like, 'You are invited to the Thomas family Christmas small gift exchange." Attention to your beginning sentence should resolve most doubts, thus ensuring your celebration is off to a fun and successful beginning.
Formal Holiday Invitations Wording Suggestions
If you are planning a formal holiday party and want to create wordings for these types invites, we offer some useful ideas. Begin with the name, such as 'Mr. and Mrs. William Anderson request the honor of your presence at their third annual Christmas holiday Ball'. Ensure the details are included such as the date, day, place, and time in just below the hostess name. You never should include information about party highlights, gifts, or dress codes in the formal invite. The formal fonts, wording, style, and nature of your stationary will provide guests with all the information they need.
Use complete words and no abbreviations, spelling out the day, date, year and so forth, as 'Saturday, December ninth, two thousand and twelve,' and not 'Saturday, December, 9, 2012'. Separate response cards are need if you want to confirm whether your invited guests will be attending, and these response cards, or RSVP cards, should be included with your invitations along with its own return address envelope, stamped, and reads 'Please respond by (date),' followed by two lines centered beneath the request. Begin the top line with the capital letter 'M' and ensure there is adequate space for your guest to insert his name, such as Mrs. Tyler. With the second line, you will have something similar to 'will / will not attend', which the invited guest should circle the appropriate choice before returning the reply. If directions are needed, they should be included in a small card that can fit easily in an evening purse or a man's wallet.
Semi-Formal Holiday Party Invite Wording Ideas
If you are planning a less formal type celebration, then your wordings should be polite but more relaxed, using such phrases as 'We invite you to join the Anderson family for Mardi Gras brunch'. For the dates, it is acceptable etiquette to write out all the dates and numbers or use standard Arabic numerals. However, whichever method you use, you should be consistent throughout your stationery card, such as 'Saturday, March 5, 2013' not 'Saturday, March fifth, 2013'. Your RSVP details may be included at the bottom, using courteous words like 'Please RSVP to Joan at 123-456-7890 by February 25, 2013'. If directions are needed, they can be included on a separate card or on the back of your invite.
Party Sayings for Casual Holiday Invitations
You'll want to begin your casually worded invitation with a friendly greeting, something like, 'You're invited to a Oktoberfest party!' or 'Come to our Octoberfest party celebration'. Be sure and include all the pertinent information, including the date, day, place, and time using numbers instead of words, such as 'Friday, September 30, 2013 at 6:00 p.m'. Your R.S.V.P. information should be added at the bottom. With these much more casual invitations, feel free to include other helpful information such as 'prizes awarded to best Oktoberfest costumes'.
More Tips for Holiday Invitations Wordings, Sayings, Verses, and Quotes
In most situations, the formal invitation cards are usually printed on white or off-white stationary with a script font. Although this might be for a holiday party, you'll want to curtail the use of bright colors on the formal invites. For example, a simple green, red, or green border on quality paper is appropriate for a formal Christmas invitation, but a casual Christmas party invite can be decked out with images of reindeer and holly. Regardless of the type event you are hosting, always include the party date and day to help reduce the chances for confusion.
Hand writing your stationery cards is always appropriate, but you'll need to ensure the handwriting standards complements and matches the tone of your overall invitation. Be sure and capitalize only those words that should be capitalized, like 'Saturday' and 'Thanksgiving.' The use of commas between days and dates are a must, and use periods at the end of each sentence. Check your spelling manually and with software before printing, and, before mailing, you might want to ask another person to check it again. After all, as we all know, when it comes to proofreading, the more eyes reviewing it the better.
