What is an Invitation?

An invitation card—sometimes simplified to just invitations—is a tool that people use to formally notify people that their presence is being expected at an upcoming event or party. Just like any other mailed or sent card, an invitation is made using paper or cardstock and is decorated with textual and graphical elements.

An invitation usually consists of relevant information regarding the event which includes the type of event to be celebrated, the name of the host (sometimes), the date and time that the event will take place, and the venue or street address where the event will be held.

Additionally, an invitation should also include a message from the host or the sender which indicates the reason why the said event is being planned, and that they expect the reader to attend that event, and this message is usually written in a formal, third-person language. You may also see sample invitation templates.

The making and the sending of invitations is the responsibility of the host. With regards to sending these, it can either be done personally—especially if the distance between the sender and the receiver is not an issue—or it can also be done through the mail. According to experts, the best time to send out invitations is between five to eight weeks prior the date of the event. You may also see invitation sample templates.

Lastly, the RSVP card, which is something that is used alongside the invitation card though not really required except for invitations to formal events. RSVP is an abbreviated version of the French phrase “Répondez s’il vous plaît“, which translates to “Please Respond”.

RSVP cards have their own deadline or date that they need to be returned to the host of the event, and this is to allow the host to prepare for the final number of attendees. While RSVP cards are commonly printed on a separate card or paper stock, some are also incorporated onto the invitation card.
