With so much of our time spent looking at our phone screens, texting has become the go-to option when it comes to communicating with friends and family. So why not send a birthday invitation text to share the news about your upcoming party?

But before you do, take a look at this helpful guide that explains how they work and how to create your own digital birthday invitation texts with Greenvelope. You’ll also find some of our favorite invitation designs to get started!

What’s a Birthday Invitation Text?

A birthday invitation text is a lot like a traditional birthday invite — except instead of getting one in the mail or via email, it lands in someone’s text message inbox. Birthday texts are sent via SMS directly to your guest’s cell phone, so they can open it straight away.

Much like any other birthday party invitation, Greenvelope’s birthday invitation texts offer plenty of options. You can transform any email invitation into a text invite without compromising on making a dazzling first impression.

Birthday invitation texts are incredibly practical, and make a great option for a sweet 16 party, 21st birthday, 30th birthday, 40th birthday, or any milestone birthday bash — big or small. They work for casual backyard gatherings, fancy dinner parties, and everything in between.

Why Birthday Invitation Texts Are a Great Idea

Convenience is one of the biggest reasons to consider a birthday invitation text. It’s so easy to send and receive. (Plus, with Greenvelope, there’s no extra work required on your part to convert any invite design to an SMS version.) All your guest needs to do is open up the message on their phone.

Birthday invitation texts also come in handy when you don’t have someone’s email address. Maybe you always chat with your colleagues via WhatsApp or you only have the cell phone number of your child’s schoolmates. Now you don’t need to ask for their email to get an invite out to them — simply send them a text.

With everyone’s email inbox overflowing with promotions, reminders, and conversations, it can be tough to make your email invite stand out. Instead, send your invite directly to guests’ cell phones where it will be impossible to miss.

What to Include in Your Birthday Invitation Text

Birthday invitation texts don’t differ too much from traditional paper versions or email invites. Here are all the important details to cover within your birthday party invitation details.

Date and Time

This is a must-have for your birthday invitation wording — otherwise, your guests won’t be able to join you for some birthday cake and a toast! Let your loved ones know the date and time of your big party, plus the time zone if you’re hosting a virtual party. That way, there’s no confusion over when they should show up.

Party Location

As with the date and time, your party location is another must-have detail. Let your guests where your get-together is happening, along with a full address. If you can, include details about the best place to park — especially if it’s tricky to find a space nearby.

Birthday Party Details

While you don’t have to give too much away, sharing a few details about your celebration can really help get your guests excited and plan what they want to wear or bring as a gift. Share whether it’s a fun costume party, sophisticated dinner party, or a splashy pool party with a BBQ so people dress appropriately. You also want to be clear whether you’re the host or if you’re planning a surprise party for the birthday guest of honor, so no secrets get spoiled!

If you’re still finalizing ideas for your big celebration, or this is the first birthday party you’ve planned in a while, our guide on birthday party ideas will help you put together an unforgettable event.

How to RSVP

Lastly, let your invitees know how best to RSVP and consider adding a deadline so you get an accurate headcount sooner than later.

If you’re sending your birthday party invitation texts via Greenvelope, we make the RSVP process super easy. Your guests can RSVP in just a few clicks, and you can manage and track your guest list from one simple dashboard.

How to Send Impressive Birthday Invitation Texts with Greenvelope

Sending text message invitations with Greenvelope is just as simple as sending them via email. You can send adult birthday invitations, kids birthday invitations, or even an invite to your dog’s first birthday party.

Take the time to find an invitation design you love, then enter the template customization process and personalize your invitation design. Choose your colors, add your wording, and make any changes to transform the invitation into your dream birthday party invite.

Once you’re happy with the design, add contacts to your list. Fill in all the details you have for your contacts, such as name, phone number, and email address. You can also choose to add additional family members to a specific contact, which works great if you’re inviting a family unit and don’t want to send texts to every member.

When you’re ready to send your invites, you can choose how your guests receive them. By default, your invitation card will go to your recipient’s email address — but you can choose to have it sent by text message instead. If you don’t have an email listed for a contact, they’ll get a birthday invitation text instead.

Note: At the moment, text message invites aren’t available in all locations. For the latest, see our support guide on text message invites.
