A Bar or Bat Mitzvah is a very special time for your child.  It’s a rite of passage to adulthood that every Jewish person gets to pass through.  It is celebrated among those that mean the most to you.  When deciding on what to look for and how your Bar Mitzvah or Bat Mitzvah invitations should be presented, there are a few tips and tricks to follow.

First, Bar Mitzvah and Bat Mitzvah invitations have etiquette that should be followed.  This is especially important if your Bar or Bat Mitzvah reception is going to be more a formal one.  If it is an informal one, common sense and better judgment are all that needs to be taken into consideration.  Be sure to spell out numbers in word form as well.  For instance, if your reception begins at 7PM, you would write seven o’ clock in the evening.  Make sure people’s names are capitalized and that the invitations are all hand addressed, if finances permit.  Although computer generated labels are becoming more prevalent, sticklers on etiquette will be quick to point out that the proper way to address them is by hand, particularly if the Bar or Bat Mitzvah is black tie.

Also, try to choose Bar Mitzvah and Bat Mitzvah invitations that fit the theme of the reception.  Let your child express themselves and have some input on what they feel is the best way to decorate and design the invitations.  Colors are also a very creative and expressive thing that should always be incorporated into any event.  Colors can establish emotion and tone so do a little research to pick the right color combinations.  If you have a party planner, ask them for their input.  Otherwise, some quick research will give you insight into what colors mean and which ones will suit your Bar or Bat Mitzvah best.

Finally, when picking out where to purchase your Bar Mitzvah or Bat Mitzvah invitations, there are certain things to look for to help you pick the best supplier.  Look for ones that can offer you value added services.  Especially when searching for invitations online, many companies will offer complete packages.  By incorporating these costs into a standard price schedule, you’ll save money.  Changes can add up extremely quickly!  Also, think of exploring packages that include thank you cards as well.  This will help you avoid going through the search all over again once your Bar or Bat Mitzvah is concluded.

Most importantly, have fun choosing your Bar or Bat Mitzvah invitations!  You only get to do it once!
