Engagement Party Invitation Timeline

First, remember to send out invitations in advance. By giving your lovely guests at least a month’s notice, you allow them to plan their schedules accordingly. A little heads-up goes a long way and can make all the difference in creating a truly amazing evening!


Include All Relevant Details

Your engagement party invitation should include all the necessary details for the event. Make sure to include the date, time, location, dress code, RSVP details, and the hosts’ names (most of the time – that’s you!). One common mistake I see from couples who DIY their engagement party invitations is forgetting to provide the RSVP details. You should also find the balance between too much and too little information. Too much information will overwhelm your guests, while too little can be confusing.

The Importance of the Right Wording

On top of that, the wording of your engagement party invitation deserves some special attention, too. It sets the tone for the celebration and offers your guests a glimpse of what’s in store. So, make sure the wording truly reflects your unique style and personality as a couple! For instance, if you’re planning a formal affair, embrace traditional wording and etiquette. But if you’re going for a more casual and fun vibe, feel free to get creative and let your playful side shine through! This is one of my favorite things to help couples work through!


Reflect Your Personality

Your engagement party invitation should truly capture the essence of your unique style and personality! Get creative by adding personal touches like a favorite photo or a fun font. If you’ve started planning your wedding day already, consider choosing a color scheme that perfectly complements your wedding theme. And remember, you can keep it short and sweet. Engagement party invitations don’t have to be super formal or multi-piece suites!

Add a Special Touch

Make your engagement party invitation extra special with personalized touches like wax seals or fun envelope liners (scroll above for a champagne surprise we sent to the guests for one of the couples I worked with!)! These unique elements will make your invitation truly stand out and leave a lasting impression on your guests. Everyone appreciates getting something special in the mail!


Hire a Custom Invitation Designer
