Benefits of designing cocktail party invitations with Paperless Post

You want the run-up to your party to be as straightforward as the invitation design process. The benefit of creating a cocktail party invitation through Paperless Post for your next get-together or business event is that you’ll gain access to our seamless follow-up tools, too. Easily keep your headcount in check with our RSVP tracker, and use our guest messaging tool to communicate important updates and send reminders to your guest list.

How far in advance do you send an online cocktail party invitation?

Three to four weeks ahead of the event is the sweet spot for sending your party invitations. Any earlier, and you run the risk of guests losing excitement—any later, and your guests may already have other plans. The only exception to this rule of thumb is during the busy holiday season—send invitations up to six weeks beforehand if your party falls in December. Thankfully, there are no delays with an online invitation, so you don’t need to account for post office lines—or running out of stamps.

What information should you include in a cocktail party invite?

You've made the final decision regarding your invitation design, and now you’re wondering what information to include. The answer is, it depends—here are a few things to keep in mind when you’re filling out any cocktail party invitation::

  1. Be clear about your party's date, time, and location.
  2. Give your guests an idea of what to expect. Will there be hors d'oeuvres? A full buffet? Will they need to dress up, or can they come in casual attire?
  3. If you have any special instructions for your guests, such as an RSVP deadline or specific directions to your venue, be sure to include them. You want to make sure everyone finds their way to the party!
