60th Wedding Anniversary Invitations
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.
Types of 60th Wedding Anniversary Invitations
There are several types of 60th wedding anniversary invitations that you can choose from, such as:
- Traditional Formal Invitations: These are classic and elegant invitations that follow a formal format with black and white color schemes and calligraphy fonts.
- Photo Card Invitations: These invitations are a great way to share your love story and memories with your guests. You can use photos from your wedding day or recent pictures of the couple.
- DIY Invitations: If you're feeling crafty, you can create your own invitations with personalized touches such as ribbons, stickers, and embossed designs.
- Digital Invitations: With the rise of technology, digital invitations have become a popular choice for many couples. You can choose from a wide range of templates and designs and send them via email or social media. If you do choose this option be mindful that not all of your guests will be uptodate with technology and you don't want old friends and family members missing out.
- You could use your parent's original wedding invitations and replicate their timeless quality.
- Traditionally you celebrate your 60th anniversary with diamonds, for an added sparkle you could embellish the front of your invitations with crystals. Real diamonds would probably be a bit over the top.
The theme of your anniversary party will also have a big impact on the invitations.
60th Wedding Anniversary Invitation Theme
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:
- Diamond theme: Since the 60th anniversary is known as the diamond anniversary, you can incorporate diamonds into the invitation design.
- Vintage theme: You can go for a vintage or classic theme to reflect the couple's long and enduring love.
- Gold theme: Gold represents the 60th anniversary, so you can choose a gold color scheme for the invitation.
- If you are planning a 1960s style party then your invitation should match, letting your guests know the fun they are going to have.
- A garden party could have beautiful flowers.
- On the beach for your party and you will probably want a beach theme.
60th Wedding Anniversary Wording
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:
- "Please join us as we celebrate 60 years of true love and commitment."
- "Come and raise a toast to the couple who have been together for six decades."
- "Join us as we honor the diamond anniversary of our beloved grandparents (or parents.)" This is perfect if the invitation is going to be from the couple's children.
- Use a poem or quote about love and marriage
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.

Tips For Your 60th Wedding Anniversary Invitations
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.
- Make sure your 60th anniversary invitations provide all the necessary details, such as the date, time, location, dress code, and RSVP information.
- If your couple would prefer to receive donations to their favorite charity instead of an anniversary gift you should add this to the invite
- Keep the design simple and elegant
- Use high-quality paper and printing
- Choose a font that is easy to read
- Make sure the text is clear and easy to understand
- Personalize the Invitations
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.
- Choose the Right Printing Method
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.
