Holiday Invitation FAQ

What is the purpose of a digital holiday invitation?

The purpose of a digital holiday invitation is to gather your friends and family for a special celebration. Whether you’re observing an important religious holiday, carrying out a family tradition or just planning some festive fun, sending a digital holiday invitation is a fuss-free way to gather your guests and save some paper. Digital holiday invitations make planning an arctic breeze because they allow the host to get an accurate headcount and communicate with guests in real-time. And no need to climb down any chimneys: digital holiday invitations can be delivered via email, text or shareable link.

When should I send out holiday invitations?

Sending out holiday invitations at the right time ensures your guests can plan ahead for your celebration. For most holiday parties, a good rule of thumb is to send invitations 4–6 weeks before the party as people’s schedules fill up pretty quickly around the holidays. For a Christmas party, this means you’ll probably want to send out your invitations around late November or early December. Hanukkah follows the lunar calendar, so make sure to double check which dates it falls on each year, but you’ll typically want to send your Hanukkah invitations sometime in November. Kwanzaa is celebrated from December 26th through January 1st, so invitations should be sent out by early December at the latest. Lastly, if you’re planning a New Year's Eve party, send your invitations as early as possible. Everybody loves a New Year’s bash, so if you send your invitations by late November (or ideally earlier!), your chances of having a well-attended party are higher.

What should be included on a holiday invitation?

Your holiday invitation should include these key details: date, time, location and dress code. In addition to the important details, your party invitations are also a great opportunity to spread some holiday cheer! If space permits, wish your recipients a happy holiday season or sugar and spice things up with a fun holiday pun. You can even include a festive photo of your dog, yourself, your family or whatever you want with one of Evite’s photo templates!
