You can even customise your chosen invite design, with personalised colours and print options of several available kinds. It doesn’t matter what colour scheme you choose, or what theme your colours go with, Paperlust has the best 16th birthday invitations for your big party.

 

What to think about before you order your sweet 16 invitations

Planning your sweet 16 party is one of the most exciting times in the life of a teenager, since it’s the first big milestone birthday (before the 18th and 21st birthdays) and is often the biggest party a teen has had in their life so far. Choosing your 16th birthday invitations is one of the most exciting parts of planning, but you’ll find it easier to choose the perfect invites if you do a few things first:

 

Choose a theme and set your budget

Before you jump right into sending out your sweet 16th birthday invites, you need to do some planning behind the scenes. The first two things to think about when planning your sweet 16th are budget and theme. Both will influence every other decision you make on the day. 

Some popular themes for sweet 16th parties include:

● Carnival themed

● Beach or tropical themed

● Around the world themed

● Colour or pattern themed (e.g. stripe party or holographic party)

● Vintage or retro themed

● Masquerade themed

● Black light or neon themed

 If you’re looking for the perfect theme for you, check out our full list of birthday party theme ideas

What theme you choose doesn’t have to be influenced by your budget: a carnival themed sweet 16 could involve hiring real circus performers or a ferris wheel, or it could just mean you decorate with drapery that looks like a big tent and have cupcakes sitting on a ferris wheel cake stand. 

You don’t need to know the budget to pick your theme, but you do need to have a budget in mind before you choose anything else. Sit down with your parents (or whoever is funding the party) and discuss a realistic budget. Break it down so you know how much you can afford to spend on different parts of the party. Be careful to include all expenses: venue, invitations, food and drink, an outfit, favours, entertainment and anything else that’s important to you.

Once you have a budget and a theme, you can start making decisions about how the theme will actually be executed through the rest of your decisions. 

 

Choose a venue and a date

Choosing a date and a venue for your sweet 16th party are two decisions that need to be made together. Start with a rough idea in mind of when might work: for example, ‘a weekend in late September or early October would be best’. Approach the venue of your choice with this in mind, and confirm that they have availability during that time. The earlier you start planning, the better your chances will be. Finalise the date based on what your venue can offer. You may also wish to consider the availability of other vendors, such as entertainment or catering. 

Of course, you may choose to host your sweet 16 in your home. This gives you a lot more flexibility in terms of the date you choose. 

 

Write a guest list

Once you have a date and a venue, it’s time to think about who will be receiving sweet 16 invitations. Start by thinking about your budget and your venue. How many people can be comfortably accommodated? How many guests can you afford to feed? This will give you a starting estimate of how many people you might invite. Once you have that sorted, it’s time to start writing the guest list. 

Talk to your parents about whether the party will be a family event or whether it will be mostly for your friends. Consider whether you will stick to school friends, or whether you will invite friends from church, your sports team, or from work as well. Will your parents’ friends be invited? Will your siblings get to bring a mate? There’s no right or wrong answer, just make sure you’re on the same page with your parents. 

Take a look at your guest list and split it into families so you can determine how many invitations you will need to order. You might have four people from one household attending the party, but you can include them all on the one invitation. That means, for a party with 50 guests, you may only need to order 25 invitations. Work out how many you need, then order a couple of extra in case you made a mistake and to give you a spare to keep for the memories. 

 

Choose your sweet 16 birthday invitations 

Once you’ve worked out a budget, theme, venue, date and guest list, it’s time to order your sweet 16 invitations. Yay! When choosing the perfect invitations for your sweet 16th, you should remember to take all the following into account:

Theme - depending on the theme of your sweet 16, you might want your invitations to match, or at least to stay neutral. For example, a spring garden party might call for floral birthday invitations

Colour palette - once you’ve found a design you love, you can usually customise the colour palette. Make sure you pick something that fits with the colour scheme you have in mind for the party (or just something you love! There’s no rule that says it has to be matchy-matchy)

Print type - do you want your invitations to be simple ink on paper, or do you want something fancy like letterpress or gold foil? You could also opt for something like print on wood to really make a unique statement. 

Wording - the way invitations are worded is almost as important as how they look! You can usually customise this when buying invitations, so make sure the invite gives all the necessary information and that it sounds the way you want it to.

 

Once you’ve got all that sorted, you can order your invitations and they’ll be in your hands in no time. Then it’s on to the rest of your party planning - decor, food, entertainment and similar. Good luck!
