Long before the party begins, an invitation sets the tone. It helps clue your guests in to the theme of your Sweet 16 and what the atmosphere will be like. Few times in a young person’s life is the tone that is set for the party more important than the sixteenth birthday. That said, here are five customizable sixteenth birthday party invitation ideas to match just about any personality.
Music Theme Blowout
For the rock and roll girl or guy throwing a music themed blowout, why not send invitations that are themselves concert tickets, or at least modeled after concert tickets? Give your friends a VIP, all access pass to your big birthday bash with these concert ticket style invitations. Better yet, for a small group party, or if you have the money to burn, meet guests at the door with actual concert tickets and move the party to a real rock and roll venue for a killer surprise.
Some teens are more into elegance than others and may want a grown up evening of tasteful celebration, or perhaps you are throwing a family dinner type party before the no holds barred dancing commences. Invite the select group of guests to your Sweet16 birthday dinner with these or similar elegantly styled gate-fold invitations tied with a ribbon.
For those with a more quirky personality, aspiring photographers, or the teen who simply can’t step away from Instagram, this Z-fold invitation gives you the opportunity to treat your guest to not just one, but six different photographs, along with all the particulars about your upcoming Sweet 16 party.
Sometimes girls just want to have fun. Whether a night on the town, a dance party in, a sleepover with cupcakes, popcorn and footie pajamas, or some other theme unique to you, this simple black invite with pink writing will do the trick to get your guests to your party and keep them guessing as to what the festivities will be like until they actually arrive to see what you have in store.
Last, but certainly not least, for the fashionista teen or future model, this invitation combines elegance and whimsy. While we aren’t generally huge fans of the self portrait on an invitation – after all, presumably your guests already know what you look like – the styling of this invitation provides a great excuse to get fancied up for a photo shoot in order to get the perfect pic to to add to your glamazon invitation before you send them out. Use this one for a fashion themed Sweet 16 party, a night on the town, mani, pedis with the girls, or any other theme that focuses on celebrating the beauty – inside and out – of the birthday girl.
Whether you choose an invitation from this list or go your own direction, remember that the invitation sets the tone of your party weeks before your guests arrive. Choose an invitation that reflects your personality and the theme of your Atlanta Sweet 16, but that leaves you some flexibility for making last minute changes without confusing your guests.
