Being happily married for this long is a beautiful thing and your parent's or grandparent's 60th wedding anniversary invitations need to show that love whilst also making sure your guests know where they are going and when.
Here are some amazing ideas to create perfect invitations for this milestone anniversary that will make the event truly memorable.
There are several types of 60th wedding anniversary invitations that you can choose from, such as:
The theme of your anniversary party will also have a big impact on the invitations.
To create the perfect 60th anniversary invite, you need to start with the theme. The theme of the invitations should reflect the couple's personality, style, and taste. Some popular themes for 60th wedding anniversary invitations include:
The wording of the invitation is equally important as the design. You can go for a formal or informal tone, depending on the style of the event. Here are some examples of wording you can use:
Most 60th anniversary parties are organized by the couple’s children which means that quite often the invitations are written from them and not the couple.

To ensure that you have enough time to plan the celebration and send out the invitations, you should start early. Ideally, you should start planning at least 6 months before the event.
This also allows for any problems with the postal service, as there would be nothing worse than all of your invites arriving late.
To make the invitations more meaningful and personal, you can add a handwritten note or a special message to the guests. Add a personal touch that reflects the couple's personality and love story.
The printing method you choose for the invitations can affect the overall look and feel of the invitation. You can choose from digital printing, letterpress printing, or foil stamping, depending on your budget and preferences.
Before sending out your invitations, proofread everything to ensure there are no errors or typos.
You should send out the invitations at least 6-8 weeks before the event to give the guests enough time to RSVP.
The obvious answer is you should order enough invitations to cover all the guests you are planning to invite, plus a few extra in case of last-minute additions and mistakes when you are addressing them.
However, you don't have to have an invitation for every person as couples and families will share one invite. Just make sure you write everyone's names on the invite that you want there.
You can add a personal touch to the invitations by including a photo of the couple, or if you have the time you could use a different photo of the couple and the people you are inviting on each invite. Another way would be to include a group photo of the couple's wedding day and ask how many people they recognise.
The RSVP deadline should be at least 2-3 weeks before the celebration to allow time for final preparations.
As well as invitations for your 60th Anniversary party you may want to ensure all of your printed materials match.
