Did you just get engaged? Congratulations! Your parents or close friends may throw you an engagement party, or you and your partner might host one so that you can celebrate the big news with your loved ones. That means you’ve got to send out an invitation to get everyone gathered for the event.
Your engagement party invitation might be one of the first pieces of wedding stationary that you send out. Use it to set the tone for your entire wedding! Basic Invite makes this easy. Here’s your guide to sending out a beautiful engagement party invitation — and then following it up with stationary for the many other upcoming events like your bridal shower, rehearsal dinner, and thank you notes.
When Should I Send Out My Engagement Party Invitation?
Typically, engagement party invitations take the place of engagement announcements. So once you’re wearing that ring, don’t hesitate before sending out your big news in the form of a colorful invite. Plan to send it out at least two to three weeks before the date of the party. If you’re inviting out-of-town guests, aim to send them out four weeks in advance.
What Do I Need To Know First?
Don’t invite people to your wedding party who won’t be invited to the wedding. This means that you have to think about your wedding guest list. Also, start to visualize the color palette that you’d like to work with, and the theme of your wedding. Are you leaning towards a rustic, boot-scoot n’ boogy affair, or is your style elegant and refined? Send out an invite that lets your guests know what kind of celebration to expect.
How Does It Work?
Start browsing through the engagement party invitations that Basic Invite offers. Next, customize the invite with your own text and colors. Basic invites offers almost unlimited color options (over 180!) so there is lots to play with. There are also 40 different peel and seal color envelopes to choose from. You can preview your design instantly, or request a printed sample so that you can hold the finished product in your hands and make sure that you love it.
What About The “And More”?
After your engagement party invitation, you will want to send out invites to all of the fun events leading up to your actual wedding day. This includes your bridal shower, rehearsal dinner, and bachelorette party invitations. Basic Invite offers invitation suites, so that all of your stationary goes together. Years down the road, you could even order anniversary invitations that match your theme, as a sentimental reminder of the big day that changed everything!
Your engagement party is the thrilling start to a magical journey. Have fun creating an invitation that will set the tone for all of your wedding celebrations — from dinners and showers to the big day itself. Basic Invite makes it easy to express the theme and tone of your wedding from the very beginning — the moment you share your big news.
