All in the details of your birthday party invitations
Whether you are planning a party big or small, an 18th Birthday or an 80th you need to ensure that you have everything planned out so that no detail gets overlooked. At Paperlust, we want to help you with the design and details of your party invitations to minimalize your stress and ensure that that party goes through without any problems so that everyone has a great time.
The birthday invitations will be the first point of contact for your guests. Many might not have known you were throwing a party until they received an invite, so you want to make sure that, while stylish, it contains all the details that they’ll need to know about your birthday party.
Details to include on the party invitation
The main details you need to include on a birthday invitation:
Who? Make sure your guests know whose party they’ve been invited to.
When? Whether you are having the party on your actual birth date or some other date, set the date far enough away so your guests have time to work it into their schedule’s.
Where? Include the full address of the location of the party, even if it’s at a venue that you think people know.
What? If it’s a certain type of party, like a dress up party or if it involves ten pin bowling, let people know.
RSVP. Set a date for people to let you know if they’re coming or not.
Planning the birthday party
If you intend to have a birthday party, decide well in advance so you can get organised with the invitations (as well as all the other details) and get them sent out early enough to give all your guests enough time’s notice. If you decide last minute you might find things become more stressful as you will be more rushed to pull everything together. It also makes it harder for your guests if they aren’t given much notice, as they might have already made plans and won’t be able to make it to your party.
Also, when including an RSVP date, choose one that gives your guests enough time to respond and at the same time gives you enough time to prepare for the number of guests you then know will be attending. Make sure the RSVP date is clear and that you provide enough contact details so that people can easily get in touch with you to let you know if they’re coming, either a phone number or email address is generally the easiest method.
The Birthday invite guest list
The size of party you’re wanting to have will dictate how long the guest list is, and it’s completely up to you who gets invited. You can choose to invite family only, just your close friends, or a mix of both. Don’t let yourself get too worried about who’s on the guest list, just think about all the people who are the most important to you and be sure they’re on the list.
It’s your party, so surround yourself with the people you love.
It might also depend on the venue as to how many people you’ll invite, keep in mind the cost that comes with more people as well, as it will require more money into the catering or more work if you’re cooking or supplying the food yourself.
Depending on how formal or casual the party is you might also want to specify if people are allowed to bring someone with them. If it’s not stated on the invite you might find some people will contact you to ask, but other’s might just show up with a plus one. If it’s something that will bother you, it’s worth specifying to avoid any awkward situations at the party.
A birthday invitation style to suit everyone
You’ll probably have already thought of a theme for your birthday party and there’s no reason why your birthday invites can’t fit in with that theme.
Your Australian birthday invitations can be personalised to suit you so that they’re unique and reflective of your personality. Our designers will customise them just for you so that you end up with stunning birthday invitations that you and your guests are sure to love.
Maybe you’re after something floral and pretty, minimalistic and modern or something Bright and edgy. Whatever your style, our designers are sure to create a birthday invitation that you will love and that will perfectly represent the style of your party. It will be a great introduction to the event, reflecting your personality and what guests can expect if they attend.
You can choose a specific colour scheme and have that as the background colour, or choose a neutral background as have the birthday invitation wording done in a specific colour, or maybe even include a special touch with some metallic foiling. There are plenty of different design options to choose from, or choose from our two free birthday invitation templates.
Birthday dress code
It’s your party and you can have a dress code if you want too. If it’s a themed party you may very well have a themed dress code to go along with it, or maybe it’s just that you want people to be a little more formal than they might usually be. If that’s the case, then you absolutely have to state that on the birthday invitation.
It makes it easier for everyone if you include the dress code on your party invitations.
To leave it out is sure to result in confusion for you guests and maybe a small amount of anxiety that comes along with the age old question: what do I wear? Don’t make it harder for your guests, if there is a dress code tell them. If you don’t you can’t be upset if people show up dressed more casually then you would like, or worse, more formal than you.
What kind of birthday party is it?
This goes hand in hand with the dress code. What kind of party are you having? Is it a formal dinner party, a casual park barbeque party, or maybe something in between? Think about this early to ensure you can properly prepare for it and then include this information on the birthday invites. If your stuck for themes, have a look at our comprehensive list of birthday party ideas.
Letting your guests know in advance the style of birthday party you intend to have can help them with their own preparations and give them the heads up of what to expect. Anyone you invite is sure to look forward to celebrating your birthday with you, but to also include what will be involved on the day, whether it is dress up or a fun activity, will help them get in the party mood once they show up on the day.
Just remember, your birthday invitation cards are going to get everyone excited to celebrate your birthday, it’s a teaser of what’s to come.
If you need guests to bring anything with them, like food, drinks or games, or if the party will include the involvement in a particular activity then include a message on the party invitations that this is the case.
