We’ve got answers to all your most pressing birthday questions right here: Invitation wording, guest lists and themes.
First up, decide what circle - or circles - of people you want to include in your celebrations. This might be influenced by the number of guests you are able to host. For a smaller event, you might keep it to family only: either immediate family or extended family (cousins, grandparents, etc.) depending on the size of your family and how close your relationships are.
Beyond family, consider what friends will be invited. Will you include work colleagues? Are you planning to use the event as a reunion for old friends? If you’ve only known someone a few weeks or months, will they get an invite?
It’s important to think about how different groups of your friends will interact. If some of your friends are likely to have a wild night of drinking, think about how your family or colleagues might see this. It might be easier to have separate events with different groups of people if there are significant differences that could cause tensions. At the very least, try to make sure there are a few people from every ‘group’ so that nobody will be left sitting awkwardly alone, feeling out of place. It’s a lot to think about, but a little bit of planning goes a long way to making your party a huge success.
Invitations should always be sent out about 4-6 weeks prior to the big day. If people are going to be travelling, however, you should let them know the date as soon as possible so they can make your own arrangements. You can send a save the date card in advance of the invitation, or a phone call or email will suffice.
If you’re in the year of 21sts that many people experience as all their friends mark the big milestone, you may need to think about staking out a date well ahead of time and making it known to others so that there aren’t significant clashes. If this is the case for you, a save the date card is the best option. This can be sent out several months before the occasion. A proper invitation should always follow a save the date, and every person who received the save the date should also receive an invitation.
Make sure your guests have all the information they need to participate in the day, including:
You may also choose to include information about travel and accommodation, if guests will be coming from a distance, and any gift arrangements you have made.
You have options when it comes to your 21st birthday presents. The main ones are:
It’s totally appropriate to be clear about what category you would like for your 21st birthday. This will help your guests spend their money wisely on something you will actually like and use. You can include this information on the invitation itself, on a separate card that is sent out with the invitation, or you can let the information spread by word of mouth. Whatever you decide, gift preferences should, of course, always be indicated tactfully!
21st birthday parties are the perfect opportunity for a theme that is fun and youthful but sophisticated and adult at the same time. Sounds like a tough balance, but with the right theme it’s easy. Some of the most popular themes for 21st birthday parties include:
