Summer party invitations for your next warm-weather event

Paperless Post has boat-loads of fun-in-the-sun invitations and summer party ideas to rally everyone out of the house and into the sunshine. Celebrate the extra daylight hours with summer parties that stretch well into the evening, from the first Memorial Day barbecue to an end-of-summer party on Labor Day. Start your summer with a splash, and beat the early heat waves with summer party invitations perfect for a pool party. As the season marches on, invite your pals to set off fireworks, chow down on barbecue, and imbibe a few domestic drafts on the 4th of July. The heat lasts well into the end of September, so go ahead and throw a late-summer outdoor feast once everyone has returned from their summer vacations.

What design should you choose for a summer bash invitation?

Kick off your summer party with an epic theme, and choose a matching invitation sizzling with style. We have unique, customizable templates with plenty of choices for traditional summer invitation designs. Templates featuring palm trees, sandcastles, or sailboats are fitting for beach parties, or look for designs with umbrella-embellished cocktails for a luau-themed party. Our picnic invitation collection has quirky, fun, or elegant designs to promote a casual backyard get-together, and our Great Gatsby party invitations are perfect for an elegant evening summer soiree.

When do you send a summertime party invitation?

Send your summer party invitations around three weeks in advance. If your event falls on a popular holiday like the 4th of July, send your invitations up to six weeks ahead of time to catch guests before they make other plans. Paperless Post lets you create your invitations ahead of time, save them, and schedule a time for them to be automatically sent.

Make summertime party invitations online

Paperless Post invitation templates are customizable—our user-friendly design tool makes it easy to create summer bash invitations as unique as your event. Personalize your message, play with fonts and text colors, and choose a coordinating envelope, stamp, and seasonal backdrop to give your summer party invites a jaw-dropping delivery. If you’ve used Paperless Post in the past, your contacts will still be in your address book, or you can import your contacts with ease. Putting together your intended guest list is simple, but with party season in full swing, be prepared to attract a few more guests than expected. Give everyone who’s coming a plus-one (or more), and see who’s coming with real-time RSVP tracking. If you find the bar needs restocking, a quick call-out via our online guest messaging platform makes it easy to ask last-minute attendees to bring more.

When the last ember of your summer bonfire has blown out, share a quick thank you card with a photo featuring a snapshot from the party. Gratitude will warm you in the coming cooler days.
