What is a party planner and invitation template?
A party planner is a handy document which helps you throw a brilliant party. An invitation template enables you to quickly create beautiful invitations, and share them online with your guest list, via a link.
Why create a party planner and online invitations?
Planning your party will ensure it goes smoothly. Creating a party plan helps you draw up your guest-list and buy food and drink. Creating online invitations which you send to your friends gets people excited for your party, lets them know when and where your party is, and tells them what to wear and what to bring.
When to create a party planner and send out online invites?
Depending how big your party is, you should start planning at least a month in advance. The most important things to arrange at this stage is the date and venue. Once these are confirmed, you can work on the finer details.
Sending invitations earlier rather than later is advised, if you want to avoid people being double booked. You should also remind them nearer the time.
What should a party plan contain?
Your plan should include the following details:
- Guest list and an approximate number of attendees
- Date, start and end time
- Venue with address and directions
- List of food and drink
- List of any other items
- Ideas for games or themes
What should a party invite contain?
Your party invitations should contain everything guests need to know, including:
- Date and time of party
- Party venue and directions
- Details of what guests need to bring
- Dress code, if there is one
On top of this, make your invites look beautiful by adding one or more images. Get people excited by telling them a bit about why your party is going to be great.
