Engagement Invitation Letter

An engagement is cause for a celebration. The magic happens when two people finally decide to say their vows in the eyes of God and others. What better way to celebrate an engagement than by having an engagement party? Send an engagement invitation to your family and friends to make it special.

An engagement invitation is a short letter in which you people to come to your engagement celebration. It is also used to inform your close friends that you are engaged and soon to be married.

If you are planning to send an engagement invitation, it is best to send these at least a month before the occasion to avoid hassles and delays for you and the guests. Putting a photo of the couple together will make the invitation more personal. With the use of the technology today, you can easily edit your invitation to make it colorful and attractive.

Writing an engagement invitation is less formal than a wedding invitation, so it is best to keep the message short and simple, use a funny theme if you want or use short personalized love quotes on the side to make it more special. Attach a map so others will know where to go.

Also use R.S.V.P. note and contact information underneath to let your guest inform you if they are not coming to the event.

Below is an example of an informal announcement of an engagement and invitation:
