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
May 21, 2015Wonderful for getting information to guest
"I wanted to include details on our wedding but the mini cards were just too tiny. I thought the enclosure cards would be too large for the 3 lines we wanted to have on the card. Let me tell you, the weddingpaperdivas are some kind of genies :-) They re-worked this enclosure card for me several times until it was to my liking. There was no dead space like I feared there would be and the picture of us on the card make this such a neat little keepsake."
March 30, 2015Absolutely love!
"I was having a hard time fitting everything I wanted to Information wise for my guests without having to stuff more paper in the main envelope. I absolutely love what I was able to do with the front and back of my Information cards!"
March 24, 2015Fun and Simple
"This card is so nice and easy to personalize. I used it for the hotel information and RSVP information. I chose not to do mail-back RSVPs, so I put our wedding email address and a phone number for people to contact."
March 15, 2015Excellent
"We used these to go with the matching 'Tree Tale' invitations we bought. I loved them, they went perfectly with the invites and I adored the tree detail on the back. Thank you Wedding Paper Divas!"
June 30, 2014Very cute
"We actually used this as 'Reception' Cards rather than direction cards, so we put on information about when and where the cocktail hour and reception will be. I added the pearlized finish, which I really like. The online proof was helpful because they centered things in a way that the website wouldn't allow me to do and it looked very nice."
