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
November 30, 2014Love my Save the Dates!
"I'm so happy with my Save the Date cards. I love that I was able to use my own design, very few sites let you do that. The process to upload my artwork was a bit confusing but chatting with the online customer service rep was incredibly helpful and made the process easy. I paid for expedited shipping and printing, but it was worth it because I had my cards in a day and a half! The paper quality is amazing, I definitely recommend upgrading to the thicker paper, it's as thick as a coaster and the printing looks great. My co-worker told me these are the best looking Save the Date cards he's ever seen. Thank you Wedding Paper Divas!"
November 4, 2014Pretty Reception Cards
"Instead of directions for this card, I opted for a reception card. I will be including directions on our website and wedding programs. This card mentioned the reception time, location and alluded to our website for additional accommodation information. The designers made sure that the text was congruent throughout and they look great. I didn't opt for any additional costs such as crimping or heavier paper- beautiful nonetheless!"
October 17, 2014Thank You Postcard
"My husband and I wanted to send out thank you postcards for our wedding thank you's. All I wanted was a picture of us on the front of the postcard (it was a picture from our wedding day of both of us holding a banner that said "Thank You." This Uniquely Yours option allowed me to do just that! They turned our exactly how I wanted them to, and sending out postcards as thank you's really saves on postage costs. I would definitely recommend this product and this website as a whole (I've ordered three different products from this website for our wedding and could not be happier with them)!"
October 14, 2014Very Nice
"I uploaded my design and they helped fit it within the paper without making it feel cramped. The quality was very good. The bride that I designed it for loved them and was very satisfied. Shipping was very quick."
September 7, 2014Exactly what I wanted
"I wanted to use my own design, so I used the professional print service. I was concerned about what the end result would be, since I used a Pantone metallic gold in my design and I wasn't sure that it would look right. My worries turned out to be for nothing. Even on the thick, matte paper the gold looks metallic and I ended up with precisely what I had in mind. We just sent the invitations out last week & have gotten several compliments on them. I am so happy with my decision to use this service."
