The right way to send a formal invitation
Who doesn’t love receiving a fabulous invitation in the mail? It really helps to set the tone for the event.
Invitations should match the event to hand, be it formal or informal and advise the following information:
- The nature of the function ie lunch or dinner
- Where the function is to be held
- The date of the function
- The time of the function and if appropriate, the time the function is due to end
- The time of the function should dictate the dress code, however if you have a specific dress code you would like for your event, you are best to include it
Formal invitations should be a minimum of 10 x 14 cm and are placed in an envelope. The name of the guest is to be handwritten, however the rest of the card is to be engraved or printed.
Information invitations may be extended by letter, telephone or email, however we recommend a lovely, printed invitations.
At Home Invitations
'At Home' invitations are fabulous to have to hand for small informal parties, pre-printed with the wording 'At Home' and 'R.S.V.P.'.
The host or hostess then adds fills in the remainder of the invitation details, for example, name, address, date, time, names of guests and other necessary information.
