Adults’ parties can be of various kinds. Maybe it can be a wedding where the bride and the groom want to keep the celebration to the grownups, birthday parties, Halloween parties, or office parties for the celebration of some certain occasion. Whatever it may be, invitations are the initial stage of the party planning process. let’s find out how to draft an Invitation For Adults Only Party
Invitation cards are a way of welcoming an individual, gathering, or mass to go to a specific occasion or event. Greeting cards are a medium to offer a feeling of thanks and having a place with a specific individual, gathering, or mass. They are printed sheets/records which convey words to show the significance the visitor has for the host and it practically convinces or energizes the visitor to come and go to a specific occasion or event. Invitation cards are printed for different occasions and events and the styles of these cards can be various relying on the person’s wishes to print. The more alluring these cards are the better impression of class they will, in general, make in the brains of their visitors. They set the vibe for the occasion. They give the information required with respect to the occasion. They help to make fervor about the occasion.
Anything negative written on an invitation might not sound welcoming. Therefore, to specify that the party is not for kids, instead of saying “No Kids” or “Not for kids” use “For adults “ or “Adults Only” instead. Writing a correct invitation can sound like a tough job. But it is a piece of cake! Do not panic while inviting thinking the family might get offended. Just letting them know that it is an adult ceremony, or if you want, letting them know the reason can be sufficient and your close ones will surely understand the same.
There are many other ways to convey the same if you would not like to be straightforward while inviting, you may request to arrange a babysitter at home for the evening or let the invitees know that the children would not be able to get accommodate or that the setting of the event is not according to children, etc. But it is better to be direct and straight just in case someone does not get it.
How To Write An Invitation?
Keep in mind that the invitation provides all the information needed about the event.
- Where is the event?
- When is the event?
- At what time is the event?
- What is the occasion?
- Name of the host
- Names of the invitees
- Some detail about the occasion (optional)
Informal Invitation For The Party
If it is an informal party, then an informal invitation has to be sent.
The details to be filled in are the same as mentioned above. It can be written as an informal letter that sounds friendly in nature.
- Start with a salutation using “Dear” and then the name of the invitee.
- Brief them about the occasion and then end with whatever complimentary close you may like, for example, yours sincerely, yours truly, yours lovingly, or maybe something you use personally with them to make it sound personal.
- Do not forget to write your address to the left of the invitation card.
- Unlike formal invitations, it is written from a first person’s perspective.
Let’s talk about this in detail.
An informal invitation letter begins with the writing of the sender’s address, followed by the date on which the invitation has been written, and then the salutation.
The body of the invitation is next in which you write all the details you want your invitee to know about the occasion. Keep it short and simple. Try putting all the information in a single paragraph. End the letter with a complimentary closing with your name.
Formal Invitation For The Party
For a formal adult-only party, a formal letter is to be written. Each detail is given in different lines with different styles.
Keep in mind that the invitation must include:
- Your name (i.e., the host)
- Name of the invitee
- Invite written in a formal way
- Date of the event
- Time of the event
- The venue of the event
- The reason for the celebration of the occasion or event
Keep in mind that the letter is to be written in the third person. This is how it goes.
A formal invitation letter also starts with the host’s name, followed by the invitation message (started with any standard opening of your choice and greeting the invitee) that includes the purpose of the occasion, and also the details of the occasion like date, time, and venue. You may add RSVP if you need confirmations to manage the event accordingly. Do keep in mind to add the details like the contact number and the address of the host at the end of the invitation.

- One can also state a friendly comment saying that though they love children, they invite you to hire a babysitter to celebrate this adults-only event with them.
- You may also convey this through an RSVP card. And it is better to state it in the invitation as well as on the RSVP card. You may give the option of filling “Adult seats” instead of just “seats”.
- You may address the invitee without the family tag to give them an idea that it is just them who has been invited.
