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.

March 11, 2012An added touch to simple, but elegant
"We re-arranged the layout of this "Directions" card and included both "Details" (in terms of the Reception) and the "R.S.V.P." We were provided suggestions in terms of how this should work, and were more than pleased with the layout. It very much compliments the invitation and is a great addition to your stationary package!"
July 5, 2011Great Info Card
"My fiance and I selected this enclosure card to list accomidation options for our destination wedding in Key West, FL. We ordered the sample in the basil color first and thought it looked great, but decided to change the color to Bay to fit with the rest of the colors we are using for our wedding. The paper that the cards are printed on is a nice heavy card stock and custom color came out looking beautiful!"
