Ideas For Homemade 50th Anniversary Invitations
Decide The Theme
Before designing the 50th anniversary invitations, it becomes very important to decide on a theme. If you want to stick to a traditional theme, the golden jubilee always calls for the golden touch. So, try to use golden as the base colour of your invitation. A white card with golden letters or invitation note can also be a great idea. However, if you wish to make it casual, you can choose various wedding related stencils.
Trace out the shapes from the stencil and cut the card stock accordingly. For example, if you are making wedding cake invitation for the 50th anniversary, trace out the design and then cut it along the edges to form a card that is shaped like a cake. Use fancy fonts for writing the message. Include necessary information related to the party date, venue and time.
The wedding photographs of the couple of honour can be easily included in the invitations. In fact, this is a great way of informing guests about this special occasion. You can either use one photograph for all invitations or use different pictures for each invitation. To cut down your task, it would be a great idea to scan one photograph on all the cards.
Let the front portion of the invitation card look like a photo frame. Design a fancy border for the photo and attach it around its edges. Decorate the card with sequins and glitters. Print out the invitation note in fancy fonts or if you are good at calligraphy, add your personal touch and write it on your own.

A Collage Invitation
For an informal or casual 50th anniversary party, a collage invitation card can be a great idea. This would require a number of photographs from the past and present. Include their wedding photos along with those of their honeymoon, first child, memorable trips and vacations with the family. You can also put in a few recent pictures of the aged couple along with their grandchildren.
Take a chart paper and glue these pictures in the form of a collage. Write a catchy line like ‘Relive the memories of the past 50 years’ or ‘Continuing the journey of love’. Scan the entire thing and paste it on card stock. Write an appealing invitation note and let your guests appreciate this wonderful effort.
Focus On Special Dates
The invitation card can also highlight the special day when the couple was married or it can be designed around the number 50. This would make the invitations relevant and noteworthy.
