Planning a teen’s party can be quite a frustrating event, since every detail must be ideal, for fear of social exclusion for the rest of their school life. Or, that is how a teen sees it. Getting the right teen party invitations in the hands of partygoers is the key in peaking interest and striking that memorable chord.
Once a theme has been decided, the invitation should reproduce the notion of the party, such as black and white checkered invitations for a black and white party or a cabana shaped invite for a tiki party. The invitation should mirror the whole theme of the party. Simply sending out average looking invitation, in most cases, will not do, particularly if it is a sweet sixteen party.
A scan of the Internet can offer a multitude of ideas on invite looks and theme ideas as well. Teen party invitations can be simplistic but stylized in nature, offering a solid hue as a background, or they can be as extravagant as the party itself. The decorations for the party should say how the invitations look.
Some include confetti decoration within the ask itself, or go for the more alluring three-dimensional affects on the cards. Some teens enjoy designing his or her own cards, but this depends on the originality of the teen.
Once the theme and invitations are agreed upon, it is most excellent to have the invitations out to the respective guests no more than three to four weeks prior to the event. This allows the guests to plan accordingly. Also include an R.S.V.P number or e-mail, so that the guests can alert you to whether they will be attending or not. This allows for a more precise headcount and gives the planner better judgment on food planning. It is also advisable to comprise whether the guests may bring a guest, depending on the size of the affair and whether it is limited or not. This helps eliminate the difficulty of overcrowding and unwelcome guests.
With the invitations should come an invite list, that way guests can be counted and signed off on when they call in to r.s.v.p. This will also bar any unwanted guests happening upon the scene.
A key component to a winning part is the invitation set forth by the teen. If it is inviting and interesting, there will be a great response, which will make the teen in your life very happy.
