Anniversary party invitations can be purchased in a store or ordered online, but often the most meaningful invitations are homemade. These invitations can be specially tailored for the anniversary couple, allowing for personal and meaningful touches. Making your own anniversary invitations will also cost less than other options.

Wedding Memories

When guests open the invitation and see a photograph of the anniversary couple on their wedding day, the impact will be immediate and heartfelt, especially if the couple has been married for many years. Select a photo from their special day that shows them cutting their wedding cake, exchanging vows or waving farewell as they depart for their honeymoon. Attach copies of the photo to the front of each invitation.

Informal and Fun

If the invitation is for an informal anniversary gathering, let your homemade cards reflect this mood. Invitations can be made from simple paper stock (available at most office-supply stores) in a wide selection of colours. Purchase some wedding-related stencils (hearts, wedding cake or rings) from a craft store and use them to decorate your homemade cards. As with any invitations, be sure to include all the essentials: date, time and location.

Personal Collage

Decorating anniversary invitations with a wide selection of special mementos and photos from the anniversary couple's life together will make your homemade invitations special. Gather a collection of photos that feature the couple at different stages of their relationship. Hunt for other mementos, such as their wedding announcement and photos of their children. Make copies of each element (shrinking them in size will probably be necessary), and use your artistic skills, scissors and some glue to create a collage to illustrate the anniversary invitation.

Wedding Format

Create invitations that mimic the couple's original wedding invitations. Design your anniversary invitations to look like the original invitation by copying the fonts and sizes of the wording on a home computer. To make the invitations even more memorable, make mini copies of the original wedding invitation to insert in the envelope as well.
