Tips for Choosing the Perfect Bat Mitzvah Invitations
A Bat Mitzvah is a special occasion in any young lady’s life and should reflect her personal style while still adhering to tradition. A great way to insert a bit of your daughter’s taste into the Bat Mitzvah is with the invitations. Here are some great tips for inviting people to your daughter’s big day while allowing her personality to shine through.
Make Them Yourselves
Many people think that homemade invitations have to be tacky. This simply just isn’t true. Your local craft store has blank cards that are perfect for decorating and sending out for a Bat Mitzvah. Why not try some blank wedding invitations? They’re often the perfect size and have enough room to give them a personal touch. While you’re at the craft store, pick up some stamps, markers, embossing ink or other embellishments for the invites. Don’t forget the envelopes!
Print Them Online
There are tons of sites that allow you to print invitations online. All you have to do is search for them. There are also sites that will let you design invitations and will print and mail them for you. You can get as creative as you like on many of these sites. Some will allow you to upload a photo or two for the invitations. Adding photos to the invitations will make them uniquely hers.
Have Them Printed
Go to a party store and browse the wedding invitation books. There are invitations that are basic enough to be used for more than just weddings. Your daughter can help you decide on the wording and then pick out the font and its color, making them more suited to her personal taste and style.
Many parents question when they should send out the invitations. Having your intended guests receive the invitation between three and four weeks in advance will give them enough time to mark the date on their calendars. Sooner and they may forget; later and they may already have plans. If you plan on having invitations received four weeks ahead of the Bat Mitzvah, you should send them accordingly. The post office typically takes anywhere from three to five days to deliver a card or letter.
