Planning a 50th wedding anniversary party

First, happy 50th anniversary to the enduring couple! Relatively few pairs have the opportunity to celebrate 50 years together. We think that a milestone of 50 years deserves a lot of merriment, loved ones, and definitely a cake.

So now, let’s get to planning! We have your invitations covered, but what else is there to consider? Will there be a color theme for the party decor and do you want it to match the invitations? Maybe you’re gathering virtually over Zoom, Skype, or Hangouts and can include the meeting link in the invitation and guest messages. If you’re looking for inspiration, you can check out our blog for hosting and party ideas.

When most of that work is done, you can to start designing your 50th wedding anniversary invitations. To start, scroll through the many anniversary templates for this category. It’s a golden anniversary so naturally there will be a lot of designs that incorporate gold lettering, foil, shapes, and confetti. There are many other options as well including beautiful florals and intricate borders.

You are also welcome to use any of the photo card options, and similarly you have the option of uploading your own photos and media to Flyer.

How to make 50th anniversary invitations

Designing the invitations is seamless. All Cards and Flyers come with pre-loaded text, so you only need to enter specific details like time, date, and location. Of course, you can rewrite or rephrase any of the text or adjust the type spacing (we don’t mind!). Using the design tool, you can also select new fonts or choose your favorite colors for the text. If you’re sending Card invitations, you can have a ball designing the envelope, too. Select matching liners and digital backdrops and put the cherry on top by choosing a beautiful stamp. If you’re looking to add movement to the invitation, look at the animated stickers in Flyer or add a GIF from the media library (or upload your own!). If you’re stuck, don’t worry at all, we are here to help through our Personal Design Services. A specialist can assist with design requests like color matching, adding customized text or media, specific or unique design work, adding text in different languages, and more. A specialist can also help you more closely match your invitation to the theme or color scheme of your party. Contact us for complimentary custom design services for both Cards and Flyer.
