How To Make Your Invitation Grab The Attention Of Your Guests




The first impression that guests see of your event isn’t when the doors open to the decorated venue; it’s when they open the invitation months before the party. Depending on the time of year, guests can receive numerous invitations to parties and weddings. Here are some tips to make sure your invitation not only grabs the attention of the viewer, but it will have them sending in the RSVP as quickly as possible.

1. Theme It

Your party invitation acts just like a movie trailer. It is a little preview of the event for your guests to see before they commit to joining you on your special day. Start by incorporating your established party theme and colours. Include tangible things in the invitation and consider your theme when you are choosing papers and envelopes and make sure they fit together.

2. Think Outside The Envelope

A little known fact is that you can send just about anything through the mail as long as it has the correct address.
3. Make An RSVP As Easy As It Can Be

Surprising your guests with a creative invitation is one thing, but having them RSVP in a timely manner is another. Think about including a fun puzzle or an incentive for those who respond the fastest. Make RSVP-ing as easy as possible for your guests by having them sign up online. There are countless sites that offer free RSVP services that will benefit you and your guests. This will eliminate the need for them to take the time to mail the RSVP back to you, because let’s be honest, signing up online is much faster!
4. Send At The Correct Time

There are many books on the market that tell you when the right time is to send invitations to your guests. You can certainly follow that advice, but you know your guests better than anyone. Do you have friends that book up their social calendars 6 months in advance? Or maybe you are dealing with family members that like to plan things at the last minute. Know whom you are inviting and consider when the best time is for them to receive the invitation.
5. Use your creative skills or hire a designer to help you produce a one of a kind invitation that will have your guests talking well after your event is over. You only have one chance to make a first impression, so make it count.
