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 14, 2014Rehearsal Dinner Invitation
"I used this card as an invitation to the rehearsal dinner that was taking place at the same venue (Bed and Breakfast) where the guest would be staying over for either the rehearsal dinner and wedding or just coming in for the wedding. This was a subtle invitation that did not take away from the wedding invitation but was a beautiful complement!"
March 22, 2014Great!
"These enclosure cards look beautiful and are great quality. They went perfectly with the Starry Blooms wedding invitations that I ordered."
March 7, 2014Perfect fit
"I needed a card that could guide my guests to the reception from the church because they would need to go down private streets and this card was perfect to slide in with the invitations."
February 10, 2014The best
"Our designer helped us with our response cards and invitations but did BY FAR the most work on the enclosure cards. She let us do front and back, organized everything so perfectly, and suggested different ways for us to lay everything out. I couldn't be more appreciative or happy with how they came out!"
October 1, 2013Love them!
"We wanted something simple, classy, and fit us. This was definitely it! We required some edits to the wording and Wedding Paper Divas were more than accomodating. I also added the accomodations to the back expecting it to be plain white with brown lettering, but to my surprise they had it match the front!!"
