Dropping your graduation party invitations in the mail might be one of the best moments of your life.
If you are mailing invitations to the actual graduation ceremony, they should be mailed 2-4 weeks before the event. If you are mailing graduation announcement only, be sure to send them up to two weeks after the ceremony to friends and family who are too far away to join you but would want to share in the news of your accomplishment.
As most schools limit the number of guests you can invite to the actual commencement, having a party after the actual graduation date allows the graduate to celebrate this special moment with family and friends.
If you are planning to have a party or reception to celebrate, you can mail invitations to that event that can also serve as graduation announcements or include them as a separate invitation in the envelope with your graduation announcements.
As you’ll be sharing the graduation season with your child’s friends and other graduations, sending a Save the Date card might be a smart thing to do.
A graduation party can be a luncheon, a barbecue, casual or formal, or anything in between. You’ll find graduation party invitations on shimmery papers, invitations accented with ribbons or inserted in jacket wraps, or fun, humorous invitations guests will enjoy.
The wording of your invitations or announcements can seem so simple until you actually need to get it done. Announcingit.com has lots of wording samples that include quotes from famous people, sayings, poems or humorous rhymes that you can use to create your own, personalized graduation invitations.
