Some Tips!
✦ Confirmations are written in such a way that every phrase goes on a separate line.
✦ Abbreviations other than 'Mr.', 'Ms.', or 'Mrs.' should not be used. There are titles like 'Dr.' but these should be written as 'Doctor'.
Confirmation is an important step taken by a person to get close to his/her religion (the church). He/she decides to make a full commitment to the church. It includes laying on of hands, anointing, and prayer. This procedure is done when a person reaches the age of reason, the age where he starts to decide for himself. Baptism is done in childhood while a confirmation is done during the teenage years. Every church and community may have different rules about these rituals. People who are supposed to be Confirmed have to go through some sessions which teach them about Confirmation.
It is the happiest moment for everyone when someone is getting Confirmed. Hence, all relatives and friends are called to witness the moment and bless the person, and invitations are sent. The invitation can be formal or informal (not like an invitation to a party). Some people also include their child's photo for a personalized invitation. There are different ways in which you can write and format the content. Use these options and tips:

✥ You could start with Bible verses. This automatically connects the reader and sets the right mood.

✥ One of the important things is that you tell people about the hosts. They could be the child's parents, godparents, or both.

✥ This being a special occasion invitation, it is advised to send the invitations preferably 4 weeks before the occasion.

✥ You need to write the full address of the church, including the street and city name. Also, no abbreviations should be used.

Make your invitation with the help of these wording ideas. Given below are some samples.
