Get Adventurous with Wording Party Invitations
Some of us find ourselves tongue-tied. Lost for words, speechless and butting heads with dreaded writer’s block. Writing your vows can make your knees tremble; penning your comedy skit for the birthday or farewell speech can leave you flustered. What about writing up invitations? What? Invitations? What on earth are you on about Jasmine? I hear you asking.
Yes invitations come with the standard Who, What, Where and When and all you have to do it just fill in the little blank spaces. A no-brainer right? Easy for when you are pushed for time or the thought of thinking outside the invitation guidelines cause you to scratch your head. A simple search on-line can pop up wording styles and ideas for any occasion. You don’t have to be a Pulitzer Prize winning author to come up with a snappy invite for your party. First up what sort of event are you organising? Is it a birthday, fundraiser, wedding or farewell/welcome party? Is it a housewarming get together or a christening? Do you want to make the invitees laugh out loud; reaching for the phone to RSVP once they have gotten over their fit of giggles? Or summon some of the great writers of romance and pen a sonnet for your guests (something for Valentine’s Day right there!). Is it a murder mystery party and your invitations are to be set in stages, so you have to be cluey with your wording? The whole reason of the humble invitation is to entice your friend or family member to attend your soiree. Once you know what your genre is, you can then set about getting hints and tips.
The right wording teamed with the design of the invitation can set the theme for the event. A beach wedding could be a flip-flop with your invite written in the form of a rhyme. Or for a party worthy of Hollywood notoriety, write up your invitations to read like an action blockbuster movie script:
Post man delivers the mail into the letterbox. Out comes our main character to gather the mail. Waving at the postman he/she opens the envelope and begins to read the contents…
Invitation: “You are invited to attend the biggest birthday party known to man. But you have to make sure you go incognito as there will be enemy spies about”.
Invitee: “I can do it boss. I have spent my whole life training for this mission”.
Invitation: “Well in that case the details are as follows (provide the party deets). I have also included in this package the RSVP card. You have to send this in before (date) if you are to get in on the night. If you are unable to post it, call the number but be warned the lines have been bugged so you have to use code”.
Our main character takes the contents back inside the house, calls to make the covert RSVP and then has to work out what to bring as a gift so they don’t stand out at the event…
It just requires you to be a little adventurous and some searching on-line. There are endless websites all set up offering free wording styles for you to peruse and select or it can help you figure out what you want to say in your own words. Just go with the flow and have fun. You will be pleasantly surprised with what you can come up with. Go on, give it a shot. You don’t have to be like Hemmingway or Shakespear, you just have to be you and get your guests on your doorstep ready for a good time!
