Birthday Invitation Wording

The wording of your birthday invitation is key to letting your guests know the who, what, where, when and why of your birthday party. All of this comes into play once you’ve selected the birthday party invitations and any theme for the party, as well as the accompanying birthday invitation phrases based on that theme. For information on birthday invitation phrases and matching themes, check out our article titled Birthday invitation phrases. This article will give you many ideas on how to choose an invitation card theme to combine and create creative and unique invitation phrases.

The writing of birthday invitation cards will generally follow a simple structure. First, your creative phrase or verse, followed by all the necessary information so that your guests know where and when. You should include the exact address of the party, whether it’s your home or the local pool, and you should also include the time everyone is supposed to arrive. You can include a contact number for your guests to RSVP if you wish.

So you have chosen your invitations and a clever verse to put them on. Suppose you have selected our Fun Bubble Party Invitation and you are having your party at home. The wording of your birthday invitation would look like this:

“Come join the party, join the fun

It’s a bubble party for our number one son!

Cody turns eight!

Come and help us celebrate!

Saturday June 14 at 11:30 PM

In our house

2020 S. Cromwell

York, PA

Please RSVP to Julie

(222) 789-1234 “

Let’s say you’ve selected our Hoo Hoo Owl Birthday Invitation and you’re having your party at a local park. The wording of your birthday invitation would look like this:

“Our little girl turns nine

In the sun, it’s party time!

Come join the celebration!

Saturday, May 16 at 4:00 PM

In Liberty Park

On Franklin St. between 3rd and 4th ave.

Salt Lake City, NV

Please RSVP to James

(801) 998-8888 “

You have the who, what, where, when and why all covered. If you are inviting people who do not live in the city, it would be a good idea to include a map with directions along with a contact number for them to call in case they get lost.

As the birthday celebrant ages, or if the birthday party is held in a more formal setting, you may want to exclude a creative birthday phrase and instead opt for the wording of the information only. Either way, the wording of your birthday invitation should convey all the necessary information to your guests.
