Guide for 50th Anniversary Invitations - Steps and Tips

Need some help and guidance for putting together 50th anniversary invitations?

Throwing a big fiesta for your fiftieth anniversary is definitely a major undertaking. There are a lot of things you'll need to take into consideration.. the guest list, type of party, location, food, theme, etc.

Once you've got the "who, what, when, where, why, and how" hammered out and any other general plans for your get-together are made, you'll want to start working on the invitations for your party. You can make your own invitations using cardstock paper and craft supplies, stop by a paper shop in your area, or you can custom order using companies on the internet. We'll start sorting through your specific options for 50th anniversary invitations below.

You need to start your invitation with a design concept. Are you throwing a themed-party? If you're celebrating by having a 1950's style sock-hop party, you'll definitely want to incorporate that on your invites. You could include an image of a woman wearing a poodle skirt, and use lingo from the time period in your wording.

Or maybe you're just getting a few people together and renting a banquet room at a fancy restaurant. If it's a black tie affair, you can use the tuxedo theme on your 50th anniversary invitations, if it appeals to you. Whatever you do, it's always a safe idea to come up with two or three designs which you can choose from. If you can't decide, ask your spouse what he or she thinks, or you could ask your children for their views.

Once you've got your design completed, you'll need to come up with the wording for your 50th anniversary invitations. There are a lot of ways to word your invitations, but the important thing is that you give all the information your guests will need.

You could do the more traditional, five "w" questions (who, what, when, where, and why) neatly bulleted down the center of your invitation. Another idea would be to go more along the lines of what a wedding invitation would say, only made relevant to an anniversary party. Here's an example for the invitation wording:

John and Jane Doe
do cordially request the honor of your presence
at their fiftieth anniversary celebration.

A party held to commemorate this momentous occasion
will be held on Saturday, the thirteenth of June,
at the Fancy Restaurant banquet room.

Dinner, drinks, and entertainment
will be provided.

Formal attire requested.

Please call Jane at 555-1234
by June 7 to confirm or decline your attendance.

It is again recommended that you come up with two or more ways to word your 50th anniversary invitations and then make a decision from those.

The only thing you've got left to do is print them, put them all together, or order the finished product. Get your address list together and start stuffing envelopes as soon as you can. You'll want to send the 50th anniversary invitations out three to four weeks before the date of your party. This gives them plenty of time to get to their recipients, and for the guests to provide an answer as to whether or not they'll be able to attend.

Now it's time to stop reading, and start doing! Have fun and enjoy celebrating!
