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 13, 2014Easy to Customize
"I changed the direction card to Accommodations card. WPD was very helpful in customizing my text. Once I received the finished product it looked great. Pink text at the top matches the Tea Rose invitation perfectly & paper thickness matched the invitation."
August 3, 2014Lovely "nature" design
"This small card provided the perfect way to add extra information to the invitation about website and registry that is not typically part of the formal invitation. I wish the card had been slightly larger. After the creative team sent the first proof , they were able to "tweek" the colors and get them just right. The customer service representative was profoundly knowledgeable and listened to everything that I mentioned to her. Overall, this product and the ordering experience was superb."

"The textured enclosure cards are beautiful! They will make great accents to the memory book we are putting together for the bride and groom!"
June 16, 2014Advice cards
"I love this idea and can't wait to see what our guests write. The cards are beautiful, exactly what I expected. The writing is very light though, so if you prefer something more bold, order it with darker script. The cards were a bit smaller than I had imagined, but that's not good or bad, just different than I had expected. They really are beautiful!"
May 21, 2014Passport Enclosure Card
"This item arrived faster then expected and looks great. The only disappointment was the size. I guess it would of helped if I had looked at the dimensions prior to ordering but looking at the pictures I thought it would be size of an actual passport. Oh well, lesson learned. Otherwise it is very cute."
