What to say on adult birthday invitations

With our easy adult birthday invitations, you don’t have to worry as much about your adult birthday party wording. Just fill in the blanks using our easy templates and your own information. If you’re not one to hide your age, you’ll find plenty of typographic adult birthday party designs featuring the big (but not too big) number in bold capitals—Deco-inspired, pinstriped, or even metallic silver and gold. If you require a bit of humor to confront those significant figures, lighten the mood with one of our funny birthday party invitations for adults. There’s no wrong way to celebrate your birthday and with designs in stylish modes, you’ll have plenty of options to try.

Choosing the perfect design for adult birthday invitations

No one’s too old for balloons, but you can trade those primary colors for rose gold and other fashionable metallic shades on adult birthday party invitation designs. It will help your party vibe feel more like a star-studded New Year’s Eve than a trip to the helium tank at the party store. Older kids yearning to recreate a little dress-up magic can choose from themed options, including western birthday party invitations for adults. Giddyup! Or, if you’d like to upgrade the refreshments as well, have your gold dragee–studded cake alongside designs featuring highballs, champagne, and other adult amusements.

Birthday invitations fit for the runway are available from fashion houses including Kelly Wearstler and kate spade new york. Or, opt for birthday invitations from beloved stationery experts like Rifle Paper Co. and Sugar Paper and bring years of party-planning and design experience to your next bash.

How to customize adult birthday party invitations

Even if you’re taking a bit of visual inspiration from our designs, rest assured that there’s plenty of room for your personal touches. Our online design tool lets you customize every important detail on your adult birthday invitation template, from fonts and colors to envelope liners and stamps. With our tools, you can easily design the tone of your invitation to match the vibe of your birthday celebration.

When to send adult birthday party invitations

Whether you’re planning a surprise birthday party or a milestone bash, make sure your guests have plenty of time to clear their schedules. We typically recommend sending adult birthday online invitations out around four weeks before casual birthday parties, and about six weeks before formal birthday parties. For a surprise party, lean on the conservative end of the timeline, so guests have room to plan out their alibi, and won’t make conflicting plans with the birthday honoree.

Make planning simple with online birthday invitations

We make the little labors of party planning a breeze, too, with smart online RSVP tracking and guest messaging for any last-minute changes of scene or plan. You can easily send out event reminders or message guests should they need directions or updates. When the festivities are wrapped up, you can post a few party photos to your comment wall to remember the night by—and in case you need a bit of assistance reconstructing the timeline of events. If you’re feeling exceptionally grateful for your friends’ attendance, browse our thank you cards, perfect for showing off your excess gratitude.
