A Bat or Bar Mitzvah is a Statement, Not Just a Party
A bat mitzvah or bar mitzvah is an important life cycle event in the life of a Jewish family. It’s a day when both family and community come together to witness the child’s statement that he or she is ready to take on new levels of responsibility. Your custom bat mitzvah or bar mitzvah invitation should therefore reflect not just the party, but the importance of this statement in the life of the young adult as well.
What Makes This Child Special?
When parents and I meet, I try to get a sense about their child’s personality and style. Who is this young person? What is he or she like? What makes this child tick? What are his or her interests and hobbies, and where does this child excel? How involved is he or she in Jewish life? Since the custom bat or bar mitzvah invitation is the first thing many guests see about this special teenager, it’s important to make a good impression and get them excited about the upcoming event.
What Does Your Important Day Look Like?
When designing the bat or bar mitzvah invitation, it’s important to understand the family’s level of observance. Some families focus on the ceremony. Some families want to get right to the party, with good reason. Whatever your family’s preferences, the invitation should reflect both the child’s and the family’s personalities. It’s important to understand if the ceremony and party are going to be simple or elaborate, traditional or contemporary, at a local venue or a destination event, a large party or an intimate affair. All of these elements go into the design. The bat or bar mitzvah invitation not only reflects the child, but should reflect the ceremony and celebration as well.
The Beauty Is In The Details
Perhaps the most important way to make a statement on an invitation is through font selection. A font can say “whimsical,” “feminine,” “masculine,” “refined,” or any one of many other descriptions. Careful and thoughtful placement of fonts is essential to setting the mood of the invitation. I have thousands of fonts to choose from, and each portrays a different feeling and state of mind. I even have a wide selection of Hebrew fonts which we can use to add an element of tradition to your custom bat mitzvah or bar mitzvah invitation design.
