After so many years together, many couples do not need another single thing and don't want to receive any gifts for their anniverary party. They can relay this information to their guests on the invitation by having printed, on the bottom left or right hand corner of the invitation in a smaller font size, one of the following:
No gifts please
Your presence is your present
Your present is your presence
Your presence is the only gift we desire
Your presence is our preferred gift
Anniversary invitations can be formal or casual. They can include the dates of the marriage on the top, a photograph of the couple now or when they were married, they can be simple or wildly creative. The invitation and anniversary party should reflect the couple and their lifestyle. It can reflect their love of nature, the era in which they met, or be a duplicate of their wedding day. It's a wonderful time to celebrate the many years they have been together.
Depending on the print time needed for the invitation you have selected, you should order your invitations up to 12 weeks or more before the event. That way you have 2-3 weeks alloted for print time, 1-2 weeks for addressing and assembling and you can mail 6-8 weeks before the event. Mail further out if you have many out of town guests or send a save the date card 12-18 weeks ahead of time for everyone to reserve the date of the party so more people are sure to accept.
