Graduation Party Wording

Congrats Graduate! Time to celebrate with graduation party wording to celebrate your success. Whoever is hosting the great party, get it right with the graduation invitation wording.

Your graduation invitation should reflect the formality of the ceremony, but it doesn't have to be too serious. You might also like to consider it being suitable as a keepsake of the memorable day.

Graduation Party Wording

There are normally 3 forms of graduation invitations.

1. From parents or carers if they are the hosts.

2. The graduate, if they are hosting the party themselves.

3. Invitations sent out by the school.

If you send out invitations to your own graduation you might like to include in the graduation party wording, a funny quotation or humorous verse.

The future lies before you Like a field of driven snow,

Be careful how you tread it,

For every step will show.

~Author Unknown

You have brains in your head.

You have feet in your shoes.

You can steer yourself in any direction you choose.

You’re on your own.

And you know what you know.

You are the guy who’ll decide where to go.

~Dr. Seuss

Sooner or later we all discover that the important moments in life are not the advertised ones, not the birthdays, the graduations, the weddings, not the great goals achieved. The real milestones are less prepossessing. They come to the door of memory unannounced, stray dogs that amble in, sniff around a bit and simply never leave. Our lives are measured by these.

~Susan B. Anthony
