Two events are the more prominent on such occasions - the open house, where everyone associated with graduation, to include family, friends and neighbors, are welcome, and the graduation party, where a more select group is targeted and personally invited.
While parents are more open to the idea of an open house, the graduates themselves often choose the party. There are quite a few differences actually, but mainly, while the open house provides food, a party has the option to provide dinner or simply have snacks and / or finger foods. This should, by the way, be clearly marked on the invitation, as well as the option to come without a gift. It is also always a good idea to provide directions as part of the graduation party wording.
As to the specific graduation party wording of the invitations, there are many online outlets catering to the occasion as well as at least one local printer who can help you out if you are having trouble deciding on something special. While many invitations simply say: "You are invited", for the graduation party you might consider headings such as: "Come celebrate Roxanne's (appropriate name) Graduation", "Join in the Commencement Celebration for Tony", or "Let us celebrate Megan's Graduation". For the lighthearted: "He did it! Jackson Graduated. Come on let's Celebrate!"
While most people would probably prefer a simple list of the facts for the graduation party wording - such as name, event, date, time and where - very appropriate for either formal or casual occasions, others like the idea of poems or cute verses - more appropriate for younger graduates and not so much for those graduating high school or college.
Verses might include something like: "No doubt about it, we're all shoutin' about it! Hip, hip hooray Jennifer graduated today!" And then go into the: "You are invited." The same rule holds true for clip art and / or photos - be sure you are age appropriate.
For the remainder of the invitation wording, include the day of the week and not just the date: Friday June 20, 2011. Include start time and, where appropriate, end time. Always include the full address - city as well.
You can mention who is hosting the event but do not have to. If parents are giving the party, they might want that to be known - or any other co-sponsors. As part of the graduation party wordings, do mention who the party is for, what the occasion is, and if there is a dress code.
If there is reason for a count, end your invitation with an RSVP request. You can use phrases such as: "Please let us know if you will be joining us by ..(include date)", or a simple: "Please reply to .." State a date to call by and a phone number, or even an email for an informal affair.
Most response requests are set for approximately 14 days before the party to amply prepare for food, etc. Graduation party invitations are often hand written, including the addressing of the envelope.
With these simple pointers on graduation party wording, you should be able to prepare your party invites. Have fun!
