Create the Perfect Invitation
Before you send it our way, be sure to incorporate all the needed information on the invite, clearly communicating with your guests.
Make it simple, including everything they need to know:
WHO: Let guests know who is hosting and/or who the party is celebrating. Also, who is allowed at the party? Some work events might only allow employees and immediate family members while many weddings are going "child-free". Make it clear from the invitation who is and isn't welcome at your event.
WHY: Inform guests why there is an event. Some, like birthday or wedding invitations, are self-explanatory. Others, like an award ceremony or corporate party, might need some details to help guests get a feel for what to expect. Will the event be formal or more casual? If there is a particular theme, let them know so they may plan in advance. With Ries Graphics, we will incorporate the theme into the invite design.
WHEN: Be clear about the date and time, including the day of the week. Guests shouldn’t have a reason to be confused.
WHERE: Next, include the location of your party. Including directions with your invitations is a great way to ensure everyone arrives at the correct location. Try to take into account potential obstructions, such as construction.
WHAT: If your event requires guests to bring additional items, inform them ahead of time. A beach party won't be very successful if no one brings their swimsuits. You should let guests know whether there will be food and what sort of menu to expect, especially if anyone on your invite list has allergies.
RSVP: Finally, provide your contact information for guests to let you know if they’re attending. Getting a head count is never a bad thing and will even save money as you are able to reduce the number of chairs or food in advance.
