The tenth anniversary is considered the first major milestone in a marriage. You may have traveled, bought a home, had children or advanced your careers, and you’ve done it all side by side. A decade of wedded bliss should be celebrated with a party attended by your family and friends who have supported your union. These tips and ideas will help you create the perfect custom 10th anniversary invitations for your big day.
Select your style
Your 10th anniversary party should be a reflection of the kind of couple you are. If you’re casual people, hosting a barbecue at your home or an informal potluck is a perfect way to celebrate. If you love getting dressed up, consider renting a venue and going all out with a catered meal and dancing. You can also get creative and host a theme party. Whatever you decide will be your ideal soiree, your invitations should be coordinated appropriately.
Once you’ve selected your invitation style, it’s time to decide on the anniversary invitation wording.
Planning an anniversary party is an exciting time with plenty to think about. However, creating your invitations is a process that should not be rushed. In your excitement, it may be easy to leave out key details, and the point of the invitations will be to inform your guests of as much as possible. Make sure to include the following information:
Place (with directions if needed)
Theme, if any
Food being served, if any (so your guests can plan to eat first if necessary)
It may seem like a lot of information to fit on a small invitation, but it can be done with ease:

Incorporating a poem, love quote or fun phase into your wording will turn your 10th anniversary party invitations into delightful keepsakes as well as add a personal and unique touch. There are plenty of websites dedicated to love quotes that will help inspire you. Here are some inspired 10th anniversary invitation wording ideas:

Once you’ve decided on your style and wording, and after all relevant information has been added, it’s time to order your 10th anniversary party invitations. Make a guest list so you’ll know exactly how many to order. Find an invitation website with a good reputation that will allow you to create the look you want. Give yourself plenty of time to send them early–etiquette rules say three to six weeks before the party is ideal. With a little research and planning, you can create beautiful 10th anniversary party invitations your guests will love.
