Making Classy Invitations For Your Next Event
If you want to make your next party or dinner feel more special, consider printing out invitations to send to your friends. As the post is so rarely used these days, it will instantly make your event feel that much more special, and you will be able to go a long way in setting the tone long before your guests arrive.
Since many people no longer regularly send and received printed or engraved invites, the art of creating the perfect one is unknown to many. Using the tips that follow, you can create an elegant invitation that will get the responses that you are looking for.
Avoid the temptation to add too much information to your invitation. Ideally, it will contain little more information that the name of those who will be hosting the party, where it will be held and when. In addition, do be sure to enclose the contact information of the person to whom the guests should respond.
Making sure that your copy is clear will ensure that all your guests have all the information that they need in an easy to understand form.
It is not strictly necessary that hosts invest in high quality paper stock to send out their invitations. Instead, you may wish to order or purchase invitation envelopes 4×6 from your local office supply store.
The Office Supply Information site will give you more information on how they may be ordered, as well as the kinds and styles that will be available to you. Even if you opt for relatively plain envelopes, without a lot of embellishment, your cards are sure to be a hit.
Be sure to send out your invites with plenty of time before the event. It is imperative that a good host give their guests a few weeks to respond to any invitation that they receive. In addition, giving them plenty of notice will ensure that more of those on your list will be free to attend.
If you are not getting the response rate that you want and the RSVP deadline is nearing, it is acceptable to follow up with a quick phone call or email to ask whether or not they will be attending.
If you will be hosing a formal gathering, composing a great invitation is a good way to get your event off on the right foot. This special form of communication will set your occasion apart from other, less formal events and will increase the number of positive responses that you receive.
