Graduation Day is one of the most memorable moments in the life of a student. It marks a transitory phase when the student culminates his or her academic career and begins the professional life. Some students may also opt for higher studies after getting their graduation certificate. But it is a day that comes once in a lifetime and it becomes all the more memorable when shared with family and friends. Like other important events that occur in one's life, people invite their family, friends and relatives to their Graduation Day party by sending out invitation. Earlier students used to invite their loved ones by sending them formal invitation cards or making a phone call. However, with the advancement of technology, new avenues have opened up such as sending them an email or invitation e-cards.

On the invitation, prominent information should be displayed such as where the ceremony is being organized. You can also depict on the invitation the specialization that you are graduating in. You can either keep the invitation formal, or can use fun wording to make it informal.
Send the invitation to your guests days in advance, so that they have sufficient time to plan their schedule. It would be better if you can send your invitation at least two weeks in advance of your party.
Keep the invitation short. Life has become fast paced and nobody has time to read wordings. Ideally, the invitation should be between 10 to 15 words. It would be eye catching and put the message across.
Apart from eloquent wording, make it more visually appealing. This can be done by using photographs such as using images of the graduate during the various phases of his or her academic career.
Before preparing the guest list, check out with your school whether there is a limit on the number of guests that you can invite. There are a couple of schools where there is a limit on the number of guests. After this, make a list of the people who are close to you. There is a possibility that this list might get too long.

For the ones who matter but have been left out due to constraint of space, you can always organize a graduation party after the ceremony and invite them.
You can always add a touch of creativity to your invitation in order to make it more interesting. Personalize it by using colorful and decorative materials.
You can use fancy themes for your invitation such as getting it made in the form of a diploma or any other style that you prefer.
