A simple way of celebrating a 50th anniversary is by sending wedding invitation cards. You can have them professionally designed or make them yourself using one of the many free invitation templates available on the Internet. Just as you would for a wedding invitation to another location, you'll want to consider a few details. The size of the invite should be suitable for the number of people expected to attend the party.
The invitation size should be suitable for the number of guests expected at the wedding. If it's a large wedding, you'll want a bigger one; if it's a smaller event you'll want smaller invites. Also take into account the number of people who will receive your invitations. If there are a lot of friends and family to give your wedding a helping hand, then you'll have more invitations to write. For a more intimate gathering, you can send separate invites.
Many of the invitation templates that are available online have a blank body text area. This blank space can be filled in with just a few notes and wedding information for the invitation. The date and time are what you'll need for the body of the letter. The recipient may wish to add their own information or comments at this stage.
You can choose to send a traditional English or Modern invitation. Modern means it is a lighter version of the traditional cards. This would be suitable for those who don't understand English or don't like the idea of it. There are also specially designed invitation templates for people who speak Spanish. You'll find modern cards in almost every color except black, which is the standard color for cards in the United States.
Some invitations come with a special pre_written response card for guests who attend the wedding. This is a very nice feature if you are having problems with fitting your response in the invitation. It's a good idea to have this ready and printed on paper before the invitation arrives. You'll want to make sure your response card is matching the invitation so check carefully. There are some very pretty designs of reply cards available.
You will find several types of cards for your 50th anniversary. Some will have an envelope, a card inside and a matching pen for writing the message. Or you can send a postcard instead of an envelope. Whatever you choose, it has to clearly say you are planning to marry on the front and there is an address on the back for guests to send their cards at. Keep in mind the card says "CEDAR FORBIDDLER" on the front and should have a postmark for delivery to the address on the back.
You can order plain stationary or you can get envelopes with a variety of designs and patterns. The stationary comes in various shapes and sizes and can be purchased in several colors and themes. If you like, you can create your own invitation cards using invitation templates that you can download from the Internet. This is especially helpful if you are not artistic and don't know how to design your own cards.
An even easier way is to use invitation kits that are often provided by wedding registries. These kits come with all the materials you need including the thank you cards, invitation, and postage for the invitation. You may also find that the kit includes one or more pre_made invitations you can print and copy from the Internet or store in your computer. Make sure you follow the instructions included and you should have no problems at all sending out your invitations. Most couples find it easier to just send out the actual physical cards than trying to retype parts of the invitation.
