How To Make A Formal Invitation in Apple Pages

It is party etiquette that when you're going to organize an event or throw a party, you'll need to send out formal invitations to the guests. In formal invitation-making, you have to be very meticulous with the content and design to serve its purpose. In this article, we'll be giving you some life-saving tips in making a formal invitation that will live up to its name using Apple Pages as your design program.

1. Give It A Title

Give the invitation card a proper name so that the invitee will have an idea as to what the party or event are they officially invited to. By giving it a title, you'll have an idea as to how you're going to beautify your invitation card that will match the formal event. Let's say you're going to throw a birthday party. A suitable title needs to be simple yet a catchy one. A good example is (birthday celebrant's name) at 17. Keep the invitation letter's title parallel to the event.

2. Keep It Formal

Since you're making a professional invitation, the way you're going to write the wording and how you're going to design it needs to be formal. Most of the time, a formal invitation are used in formal events like business events, grand openings, and government events. For that reason, avoid using abbreviations, properly address the guests, and keep the tone formal as much as possible.

3. Supply Essential Information

There are specific data that your invitation card needs to contain. Just like a simple invitation card, information such as the purpose of the event, the date, the time, the venue, the host's full name, and special instructions (if there are any) are what you're going to find on an invitation card. If you're not the one organizing the event, coordinate with the event planner so that you'll get the necessary data about the formal celebration.

4. Include An RSVP

Consider attaching an RSVP on your event invitation if you want to know how many people are going to attend the formal affair. By attaching the RSVP tag, you are advising the invitee to respond to your official request whether they're going to go through your event or not. You can leave a phone number below it so that the invitee can easily reach you when they've made their decision.

5. Decor The Card

When designing your formal invitation, you need to make it appear elegant and classy. You have to consider the artwork, font, and colors when designing an event invitation.

6. Produce And Place In Envelopes

View your sample invitation once again and check for information errors before you produce it. Count the number of people you're going to give an invite so that you'll be able to produce the exact number of invitations. After the mass-production of formal invitations, place each invitation card in an envelope before sending them to the invitees so that it will look presentable after the distribution process.
