Meanwhile, it has become rather rare that even proper invitations are written. In times when almost everyone owns a mobile phone and a computer, invitations are often sent by SMS, e-mail or e-card, or guests are simply invited orally.
But there are always special events and occasions where it is still not out of fashion and the good sound to write a written invitation.
These include, for example, round birthdays, weddings, christenings, company parties, store openings and special anniversaries.
When writing an invitation, there are no fixed rules and strict guidelines, and thus ultimately no general guidance that anyone who wishes to write an invitation must learn or pay attention to. This is because an invitation offers a lot of room for creativity and imagination and the host can basically make his invitation in the way he likes best and in his opinion best fits the occasion. However, two essential requirements are placed on an invitation. On the one hand, an invitation should of course be appealing, on the other hand, it must also be informative. After all, the guest must know what he is actually invited to. In addition, the guest should be given the impression that it is a special event that the host wants to celebrate together with the respective guest.
Instructions and tips for writing an invitation
The basic elements that always include an invitation include the event, the venue, and the date and time. In addition, an invitation can contain a number of other information. For example, if the event takes place under a specific motto, the invitation can indicate which dress code the host expects and what the guests should bring with them.
In addition, the host can ask for feedback, so he knows who follows his invitation and can plan the celebration so better. If the celebration takes place in a location that is outside, it may also be useful to include directions. A personal note will receive the invitation, if it is signed by hand.
To pack all this information visually appealing, there are several possibilities:
The simplest variant is to list the information in a table. In this case, however, the actual invitation card should be designed interesting and decorative. Here it is useful to work with beautiful graphics or to quote suitable sayings, are also popular photos of the host, for example, show him as a child.
In addition, there are numerous tips for invitations that provide for unusual and imaginative invitations. For example, the invitation can be cut into a puzzle that the recipient first has to put together to read the invitation.
Alternatively, the invitation can be presented in an unusual form, for example, as a label stuck on a bottle, put in a balloon or folded into an origami figure.
Another possibility is to integrate the information into a special text. So the host can write an invitation that is formulated as a poem, as a joke or as an interview.
In addition, the host can use a familiar text as a template, for example, a classic poem or a lyrics, and here exchange individual words accordingly.
