We've always heard it's what's on the inside that counts, and birthday invitations are no exception.
Whether you're designing your own invitations from scratch or using an online template, you'll want to make sure the birthday invitation wording hits the mark.
In addition to keeping guests informed of the who, what, where, and why, birthday invitation wording should offer a preview of the fun to come. At a loss for words? Below are a few phrases, sayings, and verses to use as a guideline for creating the perfect birthday invitation:

As these examples illustrate, birthday invitation wording typically follows a simple structure: a creative intro phrase followed by the pertinent party details.
Whether the party is at your home or a local restaurant, be sure that the birthday invitation wording includes the exact address. If you'll be inviting out-of-town guests, it's a great idea to include directions along with a map and contact number in case they get lost.
In addition to reflecting the party's theme and the personality of the guest of honor, birthday invitation wording should make your guests excited to attend. With a little creativity, you'll soon discover the perfect phrasing for your invite. Have fun announcing your special occasion!
