For most of us, social media is a huge part of our lives. Many of us look at our phones before we fall asleep and again first thing in the morning. It’s no surprise then, that many of us use social media to organize events such as birthday parties and to curate our guest lists. While there’s nothing wrong with using social media to help you organize your parties, the truth is if it’s the only way you’re planning your events, you’re going to miss out. Here are 3 reasons why you shouldn’t rely on just social media for your party invitations.


1. It feels Really Impersonal
How many Facebook event invitations do you get a week? I actually don’t know because I recently deleted my Facebook application after seeing The Social Dilemma. If you’re spending a lot of time and energy into planning an event, then the last thing you want is for people to miss out on the invite. One of the best ways to avoid this is by creating personalized birthday invites. By investing a little more time and effort, you know that your guests are going to receive actual invites and probably prioritize your event over others!

2. You’ll Miss Out On Inviting People
You need to think about your guest list, is everyone actually on social media? I’m sure you have at least some friends who are avoiding using it, or not checking it that frequently. Likewise, if you’re trying to plan a birthday for your mom, you’re going to find that creating beautiful 50th birthday invitations for her will work a lot better than trying to invite her friends on Facebook, especially if many of them don’t do social media. The most important ‘thing’ at your event is the people and by creating custom invites you can be sure to invite everyone that’s really important to you. I suggest incorporating a RSVP feature in your invites, so that you can keep an eye on who’s coming to better plan your party.

3. Doesn’t Create as Much as Excitement
When you’re designing your own birthday party invites, there are so many directions you can go with it. With a social media invitation, all you can do is set the main image. But with actual, physical invitations there are so many aspects you can customize, allowing you to create something that’s perfect for your special occasion. You can choose up to 40 different envelope colors, as well as special gold, silver or even rose gold foiling. How often do you receive something in the mail? Chances are, most of your mail is junk mail and bills, which makes receiving a beautiful customized invite such a special experience.

Planning a party is a very exciting task, and creating custom invites just adds to the excitement. Hopefully these three reasons why you shouldn’t rely on just social media for your party invitations helps you better plan your next party.
