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 14, 2014Perfect Match to our Beach Theme
"I loved the products! On the invitation I got the pearl shimmer but you can barely see it. The texture of the RSVP cards and the direction/reception cards was much better. I chose sandstone for all of my cards. Our colors are egplant and tan/sand. At first I thought I had chosen a light purple but it must have been my monitor but I loved our save the dates which were also "On The Shoreline" and sandstone so I went with it. I was afraid it was going to be too plain but I feel they are perfect! Text was made to fit I am very satisfied with these invitations I just wish there was more shimmer. Great invitations! Very happy!"
June 6, 2013Classy, Elegant
"We used Blooming Branches for our May wedding and we absolutely loved them. They fit our elegant, simple style and we got so many compliments from people about how much they loved our invitations. People thought we had done a watercolor! We customized the color - changed the buds to green - and it was a perfect fit for our spring wedding. Would definitely recommend this product."
June 5, 2013Wonderful little info card
"We really needed to give our guests more information about our reception, so we chose this card and changed the wording up a bit. It is now a great little info card! WPD was wonderful at helping me with the wording. They pointed out any typos and suggested some word changes so that the card was more uniform with our invitations. I couldn't be happier!"
May 13, 2013GREAT LOOK
"My fiance and I decided to use this enclosure card to give our guests the scoop the day of the wedding as far as our recption. So, we were able to give the address and details on our reception but then listed our wedding website at the bottom so our guests could view our site with regards to anything and everything for our wedding day details! They look amazing! We forewent the directions, because we have numerous family and friends coming in from out of town, so we eliminated the confusion for anyone by giving details instead. It was nice to be able to enclose those details, because the designers even sent me changes hey made for fluidity of the wording, which you are able to approve before having designed and sent, and I loved how they put everything together, it was WONDERFUL!!!"
