As winter graduation approaches, you may be finding your to-do list getting longer and longer.
With school projects to finish, college or grad school applications to submit, and the nervous excitement of graduation, all the preparation can feel overwhelming. We made this simple and easy checklist to ease the stress and help get you ready for a great graduation day:
☐ Order and send your graduation invitations
Custom invitations with your school’s colors, seal or logo are a great way to let your friends and family know about your big achievement. Send them out a couple of months prior to graduation to allow your loved ones to save the date and make travel plans.
☐ Order a class ring
A class ring can serve as a lifelong reminder of the time that you spent in school, and an emblem of your hard work and success.
☐ Schedule a graduation photoshoot
A nice set of graduation photos can help capture the memories of this important time in your life and give you something to look back on fondly for years to come. Schedule a session with a professional graduation photographer to get the best quality shots.
☐ Plan the perfect party
A party with your friends, family and classmates is an excellent way to celebrate and honor your achievement. It’s not too soon to start thinking about the location, guest list, menu and decorations for your perfect graduation bash.
☐ Order your cap and gown
It’s time to get your cap, gown and regalia for the big day! Your school will likely schedule a fitting a couple of months before graduation day. Shop Cap and Gown Direct for caps, gowns, honors cords and everything else you might need to look sharp on the big day.
