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
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."
August 1, 2014Great Experience
"I am VERY happy with my wedding invitations. My mother is an artist and she designed custom invitations for my wedding so we used the "uniquely yours" option and uploaded the jpgs. It was a little unnerving to upload a jpg and then hope the quality and cropping would be correct but I had multiple phone calls with the designer and always felt like I was being taken care of. When they finally arrived yesterday I was thrilled by both the brightness of color and the paper quality. AND they arrived about 5 days earlier than expected. Thank you very much."
June 16, 2014Just How I Imagined - Great Service
"Amazing quality of printing services and most importantly, the designer was patient with my 5+ changes to my proofs. They were extremely courteous and listened to all my requests. My only complaint is that the postcard is slightly smaller than I expected - smaller than a normal postcard. Also, I cut my photo exactly to the specs they listed for the card and it never fit! Something is not right on the dimensions. But, I can't complain about the service and overall quality, plus the customization with multiple fonts/colors was excellent. I will definitely be using WPD for my printing needs to all things wedding!"
