Wording Ideas for Your Western Invitations

If the thought of writing your own invitations has you feeling like you have a bee in your bonnet, don’t be scared. We’ve got you covered with these fun ideas for what to write in a Western invitation. Whether it’s a Wild West birthday party for your little cowboy, a bachelorette party, or a rustic wedding, the Western theme will surely have guests smiling.

From phrases inspired by cowboy slang to funny plays on words, consider these messages for your Western invitations:

  • Yee-haw, it’s birthday time! Bring the whippersnappers in their best cowboy attire to celebrate Jeremy’s 1st birthday party on Saturday, June 3 at 3 pm.
  • Calling all cowgirls! Grab your best Western attire and get ready to celebrate Janet’s upcoming nuptials at a cowgirl party bridal shower.
  • Relieve the glory of the Old West with our Western theme Fourth of July party. Expect finger-lickin’ good BBQ, country western tunes, and American-themed costumes.
  • Howdy! We’re invitin’ y’all to grab your best cowboy boots and mark your calendars for a western rodeo theme party to celebrate Jake’s birthday.
  • Tammy and Larry are getting hitched! Come watch them two-step down the aisle on Saturday, the 23rd of June. A rehearsal dinner will take place the evening before at 4 o’clock in the afternoon. Guests are asked to join the Western theme by donning a cowboy hat and dusting off their spurs. 
  • Come celebrate the birthday of our little cowboy with a Wild West party. Join in on the Western theme by dressing up!

Have fun mixing and matching from these phrases and don’t be afraid to use cowboy slang to amp up the Western vibes. Just be sure to match the tone of your invitation to the formality of your event — for instance, you might want to be a bit more formal for wedding invitations or use silly nicknames for birthday party events.

What to Include in Your Western Invites

When thinking of fun and creative ways to make your invite stand out, it’s easy to accidentally forget important details. Ensure your guests have the info they need to make your party a success by including these important tidbits:

  • The date, time, and location of your shindig
  • RSVP details so you can get a proper head count ahead of time
  • Any special requests, like potluck food items for a cookout or gifts for a bridal shower
  • A description of desired western wear — from vaquero bandanas and plaid shirts to Stetson hats — if you want guests dressing to match the theme

Once you’ve figured out what to say in your invitation, it’s time to choose a design. Customize the invite, hit send, and start planning the fun details for the big event. Incorporate the Western theme into the food, decor, games, and party favors for a memorable party.
