What Should Be On Your Engagement Party Invitations?

Before you go picking out some super-cute stationery, what should you actually include on your engagement party invitation cards? If you're a fan of keeping things simple, then all you really need are:

  • An announcement that you and your future spouse are tying the knot (yay!)
  • A wish for the recipient to join you at your engagement party
  • The time, date and location of the celebration
  • How and by when to RSVP

If you want to help your guests pick out appropriate party attire, consider including a theme or dress code on the invites. After all, what your guests would wear to a casual backyard BBQ is probably very different from what they'd wear to a more formal engagement dinner.

To add a little personality to your engagement party invitations, pick out something with a fun play on words or a meaningful quote. You can also customize your cards with photos for a little extra flair.
