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 18, 2014Pretty but difficult to read
"The enclosure cards turned out great. Exactly how I ordered them, however, the white type against the light purple card is difficult to read. I would recommend this product but only with a dark card or dark print for better contrast and more visibility."
May 13, 2013GREAT LOOK
"My fiance and I decided to use this enclosure card to give our guests the scoop the day of the wedding as far as our recption. So, we were able to give the address and details on our reception but then listed our wedding website at the bottom so our guests could view our site with regards to anything and everything for our wedding day details! They look amazing! We forewent the directions, because we have numerous family and friends coming in from out of town, so we eliminated the confusion for anyone by giving details instead. It was nice to be able to enclose those details, because the designers even sent me changes hey made for fluidity of the wording, which you are able to approve before having designed and sent, and I loved how they put everything together, it was WONDERFUL!!!"

"Used this to print information on accomodations. I was able to fit everything in here. I used red color for the heading to match the colors of our wedding."
June 23, 2009Perfect for me
"I ordered this along with the matching invitations & RSVP cards. I used this for Directions/Accomodations. Customer Service was very helpful in assisting me with getting all of my info on this card to avoid having to do Accomodations & Directions on separate cards. I rushed the order & had these in my hands in 4 days."
