Bar/Bat Mitzvah Invitation Wording

Finding just the right invitation wording for your bar or bat mitzvah...Some examples to help you get started.

I spoke to Terri Trepeck from Invites Ink! and she said the question she gets asked often is "what is the right way to word my invitation?"

Really, there are very few rules about Bar/Bat invitation wording.  There are several popular options that can be tailored to your specific mitzvah and personal preference.  Most of the time, the invitation is extended by the parents of the child who is becoming a Bar or Bat Mitzvah.  Once in awhile, it is the child who is doing the inviting.

Terri has put together several ideas for you to try out.  Remember, you can also include your son/daughter’s Hebrew name in the invitation wording.  This is definitely not an area to stress out about.  You are preparing for a joyous occasion and the invitation should be a reflection of the joy, happiness and pride you are celebrating with this milestone event.

If by chance, none of these wordings are quite right for your family, Terri is available for consultation and will be happy to work with you to come up with something unique.
