People who will be turning 60 really deserves a big birthday party because it is a big highlight of their life, a great turning point of seniority and coming of age. Turning 60 is not supposed to be thought of as a time of getting older and getting more wrinkles; it should be thought of as a beginning of another new and exciting stage of life.
Elegant And Special
The number of guests, the place where the party will be held, and the date and time of the celebration should already be determined prior to the preparation of the invitations. You should invite the right kind of guests in parties because a big age or generation gap will usually make the celebrant a bit uncomfortable. Perhaps the only time when having guests with big age gaps can be admissible is when the guests are all family members and relatives of the celebrant. You see, the right kind of guests are highly needed in a party to wish the celebrant the best as he or she turns 60 years old with glory and dignity.
Unlike other parties in the younger age bracket, 60th birthday parties lean more on the elegant and semi-formal or formal ambience. In connection to that, the invitations should also match the expected atmosphere or ambience of the party. Usually, there is no need for a lot of artsy stuff on the birthday invitations; the wordings on the birthday invitation is given more weight rather than the design.
A special occasion like a 60th birthday party really needs elegant and classic invitations and wordings; no space for immaturity and kiddy stuffs. The invitations should have fascinating and captivating wordings to make it more memorable and treasured. There are a lot of wording ideas on the Internet if you want to give more “oomph” to your invitations rather than just settling for the time, date and place of the party.
As mentioned earlier, the design does not have to be showy and extravagant; elegance and simplicity is the key to beautiful invitations.
Send It Ahead Of Time
It is very rare for a 60th birthday invitation to be send through e-mail, especially since that generation is not very accustomed to using electronic mail for communication purposes. The most common way to send invitations to birthday guests is through snail mail. When sending invitations, the celebrant must make sure that the invitations are sent out on time, so that the guests can still have time to look at their schedules and contact the celebrant if ever they cannot or for any other concerns.
