My mother and I are planning a party for my grandparents/her mother/father-in-law and we are deciding invitations. Here are a couple of options:

I really like the second option the best…what do you think and why? And how would you get the lettering from your computer on the invitations and envelopes on the invitations for the second choice? There are only 25 I need to fill out. Any advice on any 50th wedding anniversary ideas are helpful a well.
Here’s the link for the second choice again…the third one wasn’t any good anyway…

First, I agree with your choice! That middle one is elegant and classy, while the first and third look cheap in comparison.

On the DIY part, you need someone who is familiar with Microsoft Word. I could get these done in under an hour! You just test out various fonts (they have a ton of them), play with font size, and center the text. Then use the ruler or draw an actual text box about the size of the invite (use Word draw tools) and lay it out. It’s very very easy.

Edit: All 3 of them came out fine for me the first time.

Once you feel close to what you want, then print it on a test sheet and adjust. You have 3 test sheets so 3 chances to get it right!

Like no. two best. Set up a couple of “picture tables” one with their wedding photos, if they have them and then family pictures down thru the years. People this age usually just like to get a chance to mingle and reminesce about the past and eat of course. Have senior/food friendly–you know tired tummies, something for diabetics and plenty chairs, not saying that all seniors will be there, but friends their own age.
