Throwing a Halloween party is so much fun. But also a lot of work.
It can be stressful trying to bring it all together – the food, decorations, games, and of course the invitations.
Coming up with the perfect wording for your Halloween party invite is essential. Your invitations set the scene for guests, drawing them in by giving them a hint of what’s to come.
That’s why you want to get the wording just right. And thankfully Halloween gives you lots of options for spooky or funny pun-filled wordings.
So if you’re struggling with your Halloween party invitation wording then take a look at the brilliant examples and ideas we’ve collected here. Or use the tips below for your writing your own invitations.
Invitation Wording Tips
If you’d prefer to write your own invitations rather than using the examples further down then you can follow these tips:
- Make sure to include all the necessary details. That means the usual date, time, location etc. But also as it’s a Halloween party you need to make it clear what type of costumes (if any) you’re expecting. Many Halloween parties require costumes, some are optional and some none at all. Make it clear on your invitations which type yours is to avoid confusion and additional questions from your invited guests
- If you’re the creative type then you can use the fact that’s it’s Halloween to really go mad with jokes and puns. Make your invitations funny and interesting with some clever wordplay, but don’t let it get in the way of the necessary information an invitation must have – date, time, dress code, location etc.
- Make it clear what the situation will be with food and drink. If you require people to bring anything – a bottle of wine, for example – then state that. For families it’s important to know if the children are going to be eating a full, proper meal or just sweets and treats so they can plan accordingly. So make it clear what the arrangement will be for food and drink
- You want your invitations to stand out, look interesting and most of all be ‘inviting’. You’re more likely to get more guests attending if the invitation is enticing. In order to really set your invite apart from the rest you need good wording but also a good design. That means some appropriate Halloween imagery – witches, jack o lanterns, spiders etc. Whether you’re buying invitation cards, using a eCard or designing your own make it as fun and interesting looking as you can
