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
April 13, 2015Additional Info
"Personally - with technology these days - I don't really see a need for a directions card - people are saavy enough nowadays to figure that out. So.... I was SOOO happy that I was able to tailor this insert to use at my disposal! I used it as an "additional information" card and included topics like accommodations, parking, and general information/timelines. This card was perfectly changeable and helped tremendously!"

"I used these as an insert to our ivitations with our wedding website to let our guests know when and where to RSVP! So great!"
March 31, 2015Cute but a little small
"Beautiful paper front and back! The blush pink was exactly theright color! The designer was able to add special characters to enhance the instruction information ( ie: upside down exclaimation point to a Spanish expression I used) .I would have liked just a bit larger card, but that didn 't stop me from coordinating it with the invitation. I suggest changing the boarders on each card used in your invitation to add style to the packet."
