General Tips for Graduation Party Invitations

There are some tips that apply to any style or wording for graduation party invitations. Be sure to keep these in mind.

1. Double check spelling and grammar. Celebrating academic achievement with poor grammar and a lot of misspelled words has the potential to be mortifying.

2. Don't include gift or registry information in your invitation wording, and never ask for money. If someone asks what an appropriate gift is, only then do you divulge this information. Specifying gifts or needs in the invitation is presumptuous and offensive to many.

3. Include an RSVP date that allows plenty of time for you to prepare for the party. Make sure that it specifies the day BEFORE you have any errands or shopping to do. If you request a response by Friday, some replies may not come until Friday night – too late to assist you in your planning. Caterers and venues may have their own head count requirements, so be sure to check with them if you are utilizing their services.

4. Be sure to specify a dress code. If the party is not climate controlled, it's considerate to make guests aware of this fact. If you require cocktail attire or are hosting a black-tie event, you need to include these details in your invitation wording. Likewise, specify casual dress so guests won’t arrive overdressed and uncomfortable.

5. Include contact information. A phone number where you can easily be reached allows for better communication with guests. If you are more readily reached by e-mail, include your e-dress in the graduation party invitations as well. Make it easy for guests to communicate with you.

6. Be sure to include the zip code with the venue address. This is especially important for out-of-town guests or those who may be otherwise unfamiliar with the area. Mapping and directional programs utilize zip codes when locating a destination and this addition will likely save you and a guest an otherwise unnecessary round of phone calls.
