Celebrating Milestone Birthdays: While each and every birthday is certainly a cause for celebration, there are a few milestone ages where a proper birthday party is essential. More often than not, these milestone birthdays are filled with expectations for a big day that the birthday honoree has been looking forward to for a while now. Whether it’s time to celebrate a quinceanera, a 17th birthday, a 30th birthday or a 40th birthday, allow these extraordinary celebrations live up to their expectations with our articles filled with the perfect ideas and inspiration.
The ‘who’ of the invite, consists of the names of the people invited to the engagement party. ‘What’, refers to the type of eventparty that they are invited to, (here, engagement). ‘When’ refers to the date and time of the engagement. ‘Where’ is the venue for the event, (which should be held in a place where the number of invited folks can be easily accommodated without clustering). The ‘why’ in the invite could be optional, as it isn’t necessary to add it, but in case you’re planning to add that, then, you can write something like, "because you’re special to us and we’d appreciate your presence".
Make Sure They're Legible: As you consider colors and patterns, don't forget about the text—the information you put on the invitation is the whole point of sending it out in the first place. Your stationer can help, but, in general, avoid light ink on light backgrounds and dark ink on dark backgrounds. Yellow and pastels are tough colors to read, so if you're going with those, make sure the background contrasts enough for the words to pop, or work those colors into the design rather than the text. Also, be wary of hard-to-read fonts like an overly scripted typeface—you don't want to sacrifice readability for pretty letters.
If you plan to do them yourselves, tackle the project in a few sittings to avoid sloppiness or mistakes. While using printed labels is an easy (and affordable) option, handwriting each address is not only more formal, it's also more personal. It shows your guests that you want them to be at your wedding so much that you took the time to handwrite (or have a calligrapher hand-letter) their name and address on the envelope. But if your penmanship is more like chicken scratch and you don't have the budget for a calligrapher, you can print the addresses from your computer using digital calligraphy software.
