Diwali is celebrated around the world by Hindus, Jains, Sikhs, and Newar Buddhists. This uplifting celebration of lights is celebrated with loved ones with dinners, fireworks, and even some gambling to bring good luck. As a hugely popular festival of Hinduism, it symbolized the victory of light over darkness - a universal symbol that we can all appreciate. Though Diwali is the most popular name for the festival, it is also called Deepavali and Divali, depending on the celebrants' backgrounds.

Here are a few helpful Diwali invitation ideas to get you started:

  • Diwali Invitation Design: Choose a digital Diwali invitation with warm colors that represent the wonderful glow of the Diya. If your celebration will be a casual gathering of friends, select a design that is whimsical, like a fireworks illustration. For a more formal occasion, choose an invitation with an elegant photograph, a floral motif, or a Diya illustration. Here are some of our popular designs: 

  • Diwali Invitation Wording: Wish your guests “Shush Deepavali” with your Diwali invitation wording. Begin with a greeting such as, “Please join us to celebrate the festival of lights!” or "Join us for a feast to celebrate the divine light of Diwali." Include the name, date, time, and location of your event.
  • Diwali Invitation Timing: Send your Diwali invitations three to four weeks in advance to make sure all your guests can attend. When you create an event on Punchbowl, you can also set an automatic email reminder for your guests for a day or two before your party. Track RSVPs within your Punchbowl dashboard, and send special notes to your guests with any updates.

Celebrate the Diwali festival of lights and gather your family and friends together to create wonderful memories with you!
