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 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!"
August 1, 2014Perfect Addition
"I wanted to change the directions card into an open invitation for a park rehearsal dinner and a sunday brunch for all our family and friends in town and it worked perfectly! My designer changed the layout of the sample to work with my text request and edited the wording to be most appropriate- I had my proof within 6 hours of ordering."

"I ordered these cards and actually used them in conjunction with magnet announcements as save the dates. I was able to completely customize the lettering (I changed 'Details' to the date of my reception) and they turned out fantastic! The whole design is gorgeous and will go perfect with our vintage chic theme"
