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
September 25, 2014Enclosure Card
"I'm using the Enclosure Card as a "view our website" info card in my invitation suite. My only complaint is that the script is small, but I'm still very happy with the overall product."
September 20, 2013Beautiful card and fantastic customer service
"My fiance and I wanted to use an enclosure card as a Save the Date as the save the dates for the design we liked didn't suit our needs. We used Live Chat several times to discuss our requirements and the layout of the cards and the advisors were always really helpful and polite making the process really easy and stress free. The cards were ready for review and approval quicker than expected and the shipping was fast too. The Save the Dates themselves are beautiful. The paper quality and printing is perfect and everyone has commented on how great they look. Overall, we are really happy with Wedding Paper Divas and really looking forward to ordering the rest of our stationary."
April 2, 2013Amazing
"Our Directions card was more beautiful than I could have imagined. Customer service on the phone was excellent and so accommodating. Since we are having the ceremony and reception in 2 different places, they gladly copied the design on the front onto the back to allow me to have ceremony directions on one side and reception directions on the other-all for no additional fee- so that I didn't have to buy 2 sets. All I did was ask on the phone and got a simple yes. Wedding Paper Divas is the best, the quality of the printing on the front and back was excellent, and everyone loved our invitations."
February 28, 2013Gorgeous Set!
"I bought the whole Oval Opulence set and LOVE it! A little pricey and does not qualify for any discounts because it is William Arthur but overall totally worth it. The printing is a bit raised which gives it a nice texture and the paper is a perfect thickness. I will be adding some colored bakers twine and a colored tag to give it a little more character. Would definitely recommend!"
May 10, 2010Classic. Contemporary. Perfect.
"Charming enclosure card. I bought invitations, RSVP card, Thank You cards, and this as a set. This enclosure card is the same size as the RSVP card (so half the heigh of the invitation, but equal in width.) It is much smaller in person than I thought, but still perfect. I was allowed to edit text to centred (rather than left alignment) and change the font color. With careful wordsmithing I fit all my details on the card, and a WPD editor phoned me to suggest some changes (great!) Card stock - weight and texture - is really high quality (like a thick postcard.) Spell class to me!"
