Creating the perfect invitation for your child’s big day should be simple, right? Sometimes, it can be anything but. Should you go the formal route with traditional roots or spice things up with a bit of modern flair? Should you keep this short and sweet or provide more elaborate details?  We are happy to share this Mitzvah Invitation Creation guide with you.

Let’s cover the nitty gritty first. Be sure to include these “basics” on your invitation:
The celebrant’s first and last name

  • The type of event (whether it’s a Bar, Bat, B’nai, or B’not Mitzvah
  • The date, time, and location of the celebration & reception along with a map or directions
  • Any restrictions or gift preferences
  • RSVP date and instructions (or include response cards
  • Dress code or theme information

Now that we’ve covered what information you need to include, let’s take a look at how to arrange and word these details. To help you, we’ve created a small collection of various ways to word your Bar or Bat Mitzvah invitations.
