Invitations for events meant a great deal to society in the past. Social invitations were often looked upon as a gauge for social status. The more invites you get to social gatherings meant you were someone in that town or city. Social gatherings were common in the early 1800’s for kings and noblemen.
Ancient History – Invitation for events during this period entailed a town crier walking around town or encampment announcing the event. Anyone who heard the announcement say, for example, of a wedding invitation are considered to be invited to the said event exceptions being those of that are not in good terms with the host or hosts.
Medieval Period – Event invitations were usually delivered via servants on a horse directly to the masters of the house or court. Being handed an invite meant you had the proper education. Education then was only afforded by the elites of the society. Most of the other members of a town really were not able to read and write. Even for a simple birthday invitation, each invite had their names written usually in calligraphic handwriting. The envelopes containing the invites had seals of the family crest or coat of arms of the host.
Modern Era – Invitations are sent via post. They are placed on beautifully printed paper—which was sometimes scented. And in the last decade, the use of electronic mail has also been known to be used for business invitations.
The way events are being done are certainly being revolutionized by different aspects of development and technology. Done are the days of toiling over hand written invitations and handmade envelopes. With a few taps in our computer, we are now able to instantly print multiple copies of an graduation invitation. And even with a single click, we are able to send them to recipients who are located miles and miles away. We have certainly gone a very long way from the days of the old and ancient.
Things to Be Considered in Making an Event Invitation
Design and Imagery – A well-designed invitation would create a positive effect on the event. It assures people that the event is well organized, highly informative, and would be very worth going to. Choosing the right imagery or graphics from point of focus to the background abundantly helps in developing an interest in the event. Party events such as house party and birthday invitations should be bright and catchy.
Clear and Concise – One major turn offs of an event is not being able to deliver what was being promised. It is of utmost importance that you declare all variables in a very clear and understandable manner. Meaning if your description in your party invitation, for example, was having a blast, then you must deliver a full-on mind-blowing experience for your guests or attendees.
Sell the Event – Imagine the event to be worth more than what it was planned for. If the event is for free, bear in mind that guests are paying for their time in coming to the event. Make it worth their while. Feature activities that you think might pique their interest and get their imaginative juices going. Including great graphics also helps to promote even more eye-candy for the event. Man is a visual being. We all appreciate what we can see, hear, and touch or feel. That being the order of our perceptions.
Call to Action – Be sure to always include a call to action to any of your event or baby shower invitations. It is a proven fact that most people need affirmation. By giving them a way to get in touch with the one making the invitations, the likelihood of secondary contact is already being assured.
There is no sure-fire way to go in making event invitations but doing the above would definitely get you on the path to creating a very good if not awesome event invitation.
