It’s safe to say that any event needs an amazing invitation. It’s not just a small card that tell people where it’s happening or what it’s about. There’s so much more that an invitation can do.
Probably one of the most important things an event invitation does is set the feel of the party. You spent so much time planning for the event itself. It definitely deserves the kind of excitement that matches your own. What better way to achieve this than by creating invitations that serve as a sneak peek of what the event is about?
Try sending a boring invitation and you’ll see that the guests will probably give a tentative answer. They’ll see what they can do to attend. They’ll check if they’re available. But send a jaw-dropping invite and you’ll have RSVP’s filling your inbox and your phone ringing off the hook.
Now, what does it take to create a great invitation?
- The right people
You have to choose the right people to work on the invitation. Do you have a creative streak? Then you can choose to go the DIY route and work on it yourself. Do you feel like you won’t do a good job? Then hiring a professional would be best.
- The right design
Consistency is the key when it comes to design. Always make sure it is consistent with the theme of the event. Remember that this invitation will set the tone. It wouldn’t make sense to send a pink and purple glittered invite if you’re having a gothic-inspired birthday party, right?
- The right materials
The materials you choose can affect not only the end product, but the total cost as well. You may want to go all out on the design, but if you have a limited budget, you may want to choose cheaper materials, too.
