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
December 1, 2014Fully customized insert card
"We wanted a more complete description of 2 charities that we have selected to which guests can make donations rather than giving us gifts. This required a two sided insert card. The designer accommodated our needs fully."
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 4, 2013Simple and Sweet enclosures
"We were able to make these cards our own! The staff worked efficiently to customize an enclosure card that included all the information we needed in a sleek and clear way. We customized colors to use blue and green. The water color effect is gorgeous! The printing and paper are wonderful! One side of our card included information for our website and directions to RSVP online, and the other side we used a custom map to help direct guests to our reception. This was a great option for us!"
