It's time to celebrate your 50th wedding anniversary, which means it's the perfect time for you to send out an invitation with your favorite photos and special words of love and appreciation. Here are some tips for making your invites truly personal and meaningful:
Write a special message or letter on them. What better way to say thank you to your spouse than by sending an invitation? If you've been married for a long time, this is a good way to let her know how much you appreciate her as a partner. Make sure you include your wedding date or if you've already got your own, include it as well. Your spouse will never forget the day she received that special letter from you.
Make sure the cards you print are for important days in her life. If your partner was born on a Saturday, send out her birthday cards on Sunday. This will make the most sense especially if you've got a tradition of celebrating birthdays together like my parents do. Make sure the cards you print are also addressed on the front of them to avoid confusion and save you both the time and trouble.
Think about what your wedding invitation cards are going to be like. For example, many couples like to send their wedding invitation cards out during the week before their marriage ceremony, as this is the ideal time to get pictures taken together and to celebrate your love and commitment to each other. However, if you want to send your cards out during the weekend, just keep in mind that your cards will be sent out during the middle of the day to make sure you get some good reaction from your wife and to prevent her from getting too stressed out over the whole process. A lot of women have actually gotten a lot more attention on the weekend when they send out their cards than they have during the week, so this is one more time to be practical when thinking about your invitation wording.
Keep your cards personalized. A personalized photo of your beloved on your card may seem trivial, but the thought and effort that goes into creating it will be truly appreciated. So, even if you're not planning to have your pictures printed, why not go that extra mile and have your own picture made into your invitation cards? Your wife will certainly remember the day that you took her on that great photo shoot, and she'll be very thankful to you for it.
Send fifty year anniversary cards during the day, and don't think twice about it. After all, it's the best way for you to show how much you appreciate and love your partner – especially the time you've been together since the day you were married.
