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 8, 2014Customized for a wedding invitation
"We are having a very small wedding and a larger reception. I was able to fully customize this to make it the wedding invitation, and made the wedding invitation for the reception. I called and spoke with a customer service associate and she was so helpful and answered all my questions, making it a pleasure to order!"

November 17, 2012Perfect vineyard theme
"I ordered the Deep Plum Vibrate Vineyard stationary (save-the-dates, invitations, enclosure cards, response cards, place cards, and thank you cards) and everything turned out wonderful. The Vibrant Vineyard worked very nicely with the Italian restaurant (Maggiano's banquets) and the Deep Plum coordinated with the plum dresses the MOH and Best Lady wore. The quality of paper was very nice and the shipping was very quick."

"Everything, including color and font was exactly as I wanted and ordered. Nothing was brighter/duller than the images on the company site. Highly recommended."
March 29, 2012Directions & Details
"We went with the pearl paper, which felt fancier than the matte. We also asked for the text to be in the 'pearl' color instead of the stock color, which felt really pink. We're very happy with the navy/cream color combo. Directions to our venue took up more room than expected. I was hoping to have a little more room to add a few more details. It would be great if they could print on both sides of the paper. We don't want to bulk up the invitations by adding another enclosure card, so we just skipped some of the details (like a link to the ferry schedule)."
