Kinds of Events That Need Invitation Cards

There are formal and casual events, and there are events that need an invitation card, while some can forego its necessity. Here are some events where invitation cards are important.

  • Weddings. Weddings are one of those significant events as it marks another chapter of a person’s life. Therefore, it is best to share it with the closest and most important people in your life. Because of this, an invitation card is imperative as one way to announce the special event as well as invite them to come and join you.
  • Birthday parties. Whether it’s your child’s first birthday or a milestone party for your patriarchs or matriarchs, a birthday party invitation card is necessary to ask and let acquaintances, close friends, and family members join the celebration and give their birthday wishes to the celebrant as he or she comes of age.
  • Farewell parties. Farewell parties are usually held during a person’s retirement from work, after a college graduation, or when someone is going abroad to work or study. Inviting colleagues, classmates, or family members and friends to this kind of gathering gives them the chance can say their goodbyes to each other properly.
  • Showers. Showers are given before an important event happens in someone’s life. For example, a bridal shower is given to the bride-to-be just before her wedding, or a baby shower is given in honor of a little child before he comes out into the real world. Invitation cards are necessary to make sure close friends are able to come.
  • Business or corporate events. Parties do not need to be personal all the time as companies can also organize events for their employees and executives to mix and mingle socially. It is an integral part of a company’s dynamic and culture as it helps build good relationships between the members of the organization.
  • Anniversary parties. Wedding anniversaries are usually intimate, but they can also be celebrated with friends and family members. Usually, organizations also celebrate their founding anniversary so they may need to invite people who are part or became part of their development and success. These parties can also be in honor of these innovators.
  • School events. School events include foundation days, batch reunions, family day, sports day, recitals, plays, and other events held in the school. These events are usually held to showcase what their student’s learned in the institution; therefore, it is just sensible to invite their parents and guardians to share their children’s achievements.
  • Dinner parties. Wedding rehearsal dinners and charity fundraising events are just examples of parties that are held during dinner. Most of these dinner parties, especially corporate ones, are formal events. Thus, invitation cards are given to sponsors and donors to maintain a sense of class and professionalism.
  • Lunch parties. Unlike dinner events, lunch parties are less formal occasions, if not casual. Lunch parties are usually done on weekends where family and friends gather for a barbecue beside the pool. Some corporate events are also held in the middle of the day such as the opening of a new branch, office, or store.
  • Holiday parties. Although most holiday parties such as Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year are celebrated with families; there are times when it is celebrated with a group of friends or coworkers. To make sure you don’t celebrate these occasions alone, you can give out invitation cards and create an awesome party together.

The Benefits of Invitation Cards

Because the invitation card is the first thing your guests will receive, it is bound to set the tone of the special occasion as well as give them the idea of what to expect on that day. Aside from giving them the facts and details of the event, there are other advantages of giving out invitation cards than not sending any at all.

  • They notify your guests. There are many ways to announce the details of your event but to make sure your guests are given the accurate details, invitation cards are given out to notify them and ensure they do not forget to dress up and grace you with their presence.
  • They remind your guests. Unlike an invitation made by word of mouth, cards provide a tangible way to remind your guests of the different and sometimes small details regarding your event; such as the date, time, and location of the event among others. See Invitation Formats.
  • They delight your guests. Stylish and creative invitations are your first opportunity to give your guests the right impression of what your special event would be like and what they can expect during the day. It’s also a good way to ignite their curiosity and generate their interest.
  • They organize your guests. Invitation cards can be a great tool to organize your guests. Each RSVP received from the invitations sent allows you to modify seating arrangements and keep track of the number of attendees and decide on menu and cuisine requirements.
  • They keep you on track. With the different kinds of stationery that comes with invitations such as save-the-date cards, evening rehearsals, and thank-you cards, it helps you identify which parts of the event are already prepared and which parts need attention.
  • They serve as souvenirs. A common misconception of invitation cards is that they are just pieces of paper and seems useless after the event. In fact, some guests hold on to them for a while and even end up keeping them for good as souvenirs or sources of inspiration for another event.
  • They show your creativity. As there are no standards for making invitation cards, you can play with the design and even the wordings inside the card to show your creativity. Even though they cost a lot of time to produce, you can enjoy making DIY cards, which help you save money as well.
