Important Information to Include in Your Party Invitations


There's nothing worse than forgetting to put vital information on your party invitations. Whether it's a name, date or number, leaving out even a single piece of information can cause potential attendees to be confused. Sure, recipients can always call and inquire, but you want to make sure that everything is presented on the party invitation for the convenience of your guests. Use this guide as a checklist to make sure you have included the party's most important information.

1. Name: If the party is for your child, include your name and the child's name. Otherwise, only one name should be enough if it's your own party that you are throwing.

2. Date: Make sure that the date is set in stone. There's nothing worse than changing the date or specifying the incorrect date of the party. Guests will likely RSVP and may put other plans on hold to attend your party. Be considerate and rain or shine, celebrate the party on the date indicated on the party invitation.

3. Time: Similar to the date, make sure the time is set in stone. Again, guests may have other plans scheduled during the day. The time you include should be the exact time the party begins.

4. Location: Be sure to include the location of the celebration. This is a piece of information that guests use to determine if they will be able to make it.

5. Contact: You always want to include contact information. Whether it's a phone numbers or e-mail address, include your contact information so that you can easily be reached if any of the invited guests have any questions.
