When organising an event at home, may it be a wedding reception, a birthday party or any other gathering, the most important thing you have to deal with is to make sure that all the people that are important to you will actually be present that day. In order to guarantee a full success to you event, you must consequently send invitation cards beforehand for your guests to save the date. Here are some original advices and ideas for a nice home-made invitation card.
All-made, half-DIY or totally home-made cards?
When preparing your invitation cards, you must first think of how much time you have to prepare them according to the number of guests you plan to invite. If you don’t have that much time or that you intend to welcome many guests, you probably have better using professionnal services that will deliver all-made invits.
On the other hand, if you have enough time and that the number of guests allows it, it is always nicer to give your cards a personal touch. You can then choose between totally home-made cards, for which you may need some help as it is quite time-consuming, or use professionnal services where you can personalise your cards.
Ideas for a wedding card
For instance, if you are planning your wedding, you do want your invitation cards to be personalised, without which your wedding could become just a random wedding. No, it is your wedding and you must prepare your guests for it.
As you will probably have many guests, the best thing is to find a plateform that will offer different templates of wedding invitations, but also allows you to bring your personal touch. Of course, inserting a photo of you and your future husband is a must.
Then, try to think of someting funny that pictures you both. You could choose the theme of the first movie you went to see together and make a joke about it. For example, if the movie was Star Wars, why not photoshoping the picture of you both so that it seem you are wearing Star Wars costumes.
People love food!
If you have the budget, one idea that will definitely mark your guests mind is to make an edible version of your invitation card. People love food and will surely remember the date of your event if they can eat part of their invit. Of course, you must keep a non-edible part with the date written on it!
For instance, you could buy chocolate tabs and print your invits on sheets of paper that will wrap the tabs, or edible cards that you will personalise with edible ink pens. You could also order tiny boxes of wrapped chocolates inserting one piece of information about you event in each chocolate.
The most original idea we have for you today is to make home-made “Advent” calendars with one chocolate bite to eat per day until the day of your event. That way, you can be totally certain that your guests won’t forget to attend your party!
