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
August 26, 2014Reception Card
"I used the directions card as a reception card. I was able to personalize the product with my own information and font designs to match the font designs I had chosen to use on my invitations. I even was able to get the leaf print on the back of the card so that it matched the invitations perfectly. I was so impressed with the quick feedback and advice the designers gave me in making the set uniform. The editing of my proofs was done in a remarkable time frame. We have gotten so many compliments on the look, feel, pearl shimmer. and overall design of this product!"
August 8, 2014Very versatile!
"Our enclosure card for our wedding invitations turned out great! I loved that we were able to completely personalize it to say everything we wanted to on one card! And it saved us money so we didn't have to get several separate cards to give our guests the information they needed! The design specialists were great in putting little finishing touches to really complete the look. My fiancé and I were very happy with them!"
July 22, 2014Long term relationship
"I thought this was the perfect card for a relationship that has gone on for quite a while. I used the wedding colors in the card. The direction card has some body to it which I think is good for folks who need the printed card."
July 15, 2014info card
"i was hoping to avoid any extra stuffers in our inviations if it were possible, but there are certain things you should inform your guests of, so i added info about parking and arrival times and gift registraion type stuff... the only thing that wasnt perfect(for me), would be the back side of this card. the diagonal stripes Do Not go all the way to the bottom of the card (artist choice) , it just seemed unfinished to me, so i asked that they add a "text box" to the space and using the same font and color; add our names & wedding date to fill it out. when they arrived it was exactly as i asked for and i am a happy girl :)"

"I chose my wedding invitation in the watermelon color which was a neutral pink. I absolutely love them. Complimentary review was included and my invites arrived earlier than expected (this was with standard shipping). I am very pleased with Wedding Paper Diva."
