Do you need to know what type of enclosures you should include with your wedding invitations as well as what those enclosures should say? Do you need to brush up on your etiquette for sending wedding invitation reply cards? Our comprehensive and informative guide below provides all of the information you will need about wedding response card etiquette, suggestions on wedding invitation reply cards and more.
Invitation Enclosures Etiquette
The enclosures included in your wedding invitations do more than just help you keep track of how many guests will be coming to your wedding. That is why invitation enclosure etiquette-from wedding response card etiquette to wedding reception card etiquette-is so vital.
Wedding Response Card Etiquette
Enclosed within the invitation, the wedding response card is always sent with a stamp affixed to a self-addressed envelope. This helps to ensure that the bride and groom and/or wedding planners have an accurate count of the number of guests expected to attend. An additional benefit of response cards is that they can also include the guests' meal preferences so just the right amount of food and drinks are ordered.
Wedding Reception Cards Etiquette
What do you do if not all information about the reception will fit on the invitation? Send wedding reception cards with the additional information you need to supply. These wedding reception cards also are good if you are inviting more guests to the ceremony than the reception. In this case, these cards are inserted into the invitations of only certain people.
In addition to wedding reception cards, map and direction cards should also be printed and included if some guests aren't as familiar with the area in which you're holding your ceremony. These should be included in everyone's invitation if you so choose to print them.
Customer reviews of our Wedding Enclosure Cards
April 17, 2013Cruise Information Card
"Since my wedding ceremony will be taking place during a week-long Caribbean cruise, I purchased this enclosure card to communicate "Cruise Information" such as cruise booking #s, contact information, group flight confirmation #s, and additional general cruise details. I also included a link "for more information" to our wedding website. The flexibility of this enclosure card made it easier to convey a lot of extra, unique wedding information to my less "computer familiar" guests."

"I ordered a blank card and submitted a designed wedding map file to be printed on this. It turned out beautifully and it matched the rest of my wedding suite. The staff at WPD were great in accommodating my requests :)"
February 21, 2011Great card
"The card was exactly what I expected. The paper does not exactly match the dark red of the save the date - it is more like the lighter red color from the decoration on the save the dates."
November 16, 2010perfect enclosure card
"I used this card as an enclosure along with the elegant eternity card. The cards matched perfectly, and the Wedding Diva designers did a great job customizing the card for what I needed. The paper is a heavy, smooth cardstock. They looked great, and arrived very quickly."
