Step 1: Design and template

The first thing you would need is a design for the theme. If you’re good with designing through softwares, you can use InDesign, or any other software you’re familiar with. However, avoid using Microsoft Word. The best invitation is going to require a modern design. The modern design focuses more on the content, and there’s a lot of white space. Consider adding some photos as well.

If you can’t use design softwares, custom designs are available for different themes on websites like www.invitationbox.com. For the template, you can go for a single paper or a folding card. For the size, you can choose 5 by 7 inches, 4.1 by 5.25 inches or 4 by 9 inches.

Step 2: Content

The best invitation would require the best content. You should include all the information relevant to the event. Don’t miss out any details like the people involved, location, time and the theme of the event. The content should complement the design, and should be easy to read. The wording should express your personality and display good etiquette.

Step 3: Images

No matter what the theme is, the best location to place images would be at the front of a single card or a folded card stock. If you’re going to go with multiple images, avoid overlapping by gluing them. The front can be covered so the glue can easily dry. The images should be arranged in a way they complement the color of the theme.
