Girls are usually the ones who treat their 18th birthday as a big deal because it is considered to be the time when they will officially transform from a baby to a lady. Girls would usually throw a big birthday party for their 18th birthday, complete with a mini-entourage (18 roses, 18 candles, etc.).
One important aspect to be considered in planning a debut is the invitation. A debut’s invitation will greatly depend on the theme or motif of the party.
You’ve Got Mail
Sending 18th party invitations through e-mail is perhaps the least preferred method of debutantes because of the lack of impact and attractiveness.

A debut is considered to be a very big event or milestone in a girl’s life that’s why most people would surely raise their eyebrows if they receive an invitation for a formal debut through a simple and casual e-mail.

The most preferred way to send 18th birthday invitations is through the traditional and classic snail mail. Aside from leaving a better impression to the recipients in comparison with electronic mails, snail mail is also a great way for the debutante to show off her beautiful and unique birthday party invitation. For sure, the invitations for a debut is very beautiful and full of art.
Sending invitations through snail mail may be a bit time consuming, but the effect and impact that it will leave on the guests will surely be worth the time and effort.

You can actually make your very own invitation at home; all you need is a computer or laptop, a software or program that allows you to make your own invitation (complete with pictures, banners, templates, etc), a high-quality printer that prints well even in color, and an access to a photocopying machine.
