Tips on Holiday Invitation Wording

Seasons Silhouette Fold-Up InvitationsSometimes it’s more important how you say something than what you say. When it comes to invitations,  holiday invitation wording is just as important (if not more so) than the invitation’s design. Wording holiday invitations properly will pack the house and put everyone in the holiday spirit.

It’s important to keep your audience in mind while wording your holiday invitations. So as not to offend, it’s important to respect your guests’ religious affiliations. The most common mistake people make when wording holiday invitations is to assume everyone celebrates Christmas.Swirls of Holly Designed Layered Invitations

If you are hosting a party and wish to only acknowledge Christmas, and you are sure no other religious affiliations will be in attendance, then it’s fine to use the word “Christmas” in your holiday invitation wording, but if you are inviting people of varied religious backgrounds, we recommend you keep the wording general such as a “holiday celebration” or “special time of year,” or “festive gathering.” None of those phrases excludes any religious group.

Here are some examples of holiday invitation wording that includes everyone and is politically correct:
