Once upon a time, there were temper tantrums, tears and bribes when it came to homework and studying for exams. Today, you have a fully grown child who’s either getting ready for their first graduation exercises or celebrating one of many. Before you get ready to snap hundreds of commencement photos to print in your Chatbooks photo book, you’ll want to shout your kid’s accomplishments from the rooftop (they’re our accomplishments, too, right?) — which is the perfect opportunity to send out graduation announcements. But what’s the proper etiquette and wording for your grad announcements and invitations? Here are the best graduation announcement wording ideas...

P.S. If you want to add Bible verses to your announcements, these verses are great options.

There are certain details your graduation announcement should include, like the graduate’s name, school name, degree, class year, honors, location, the date and time. If you’re throwing a party, make sure you include details about the celebration, as well.
