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
December 1, 2014Fully customized insert card
"We wanted a more complete description of 2 charities that we have selected to which guests can make donations rather than giving us gifts. This required a two sided insert card. The designer accommodated our needs fully."
June 6, 2013Classy, Elegant
"We used Blooming Branches for our May wedding and we absolutely loved them. They fit our elegant, simple style and we got so many compliments from people about how much they loved our invitations. People thought we had done a watercolor! We customized the color - changed the buds to green - and it was a perfect fit for our spring wedding. Would definitely recommend this product."
October 2, 2010Perfect
"This was a perfect little card to personalize the invites. We put our own little thank you message on there and added things to do around the area where we are getting married. It looks beautiful next to everything."
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!"
