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.

"Instead of a "direction" card I am using this as a "More Info" card to send out with my save the dates. It is the perfect size and I was able to put hotel information & wedding website on it, The designer was awesome to work with !"

"We used the enclosure cards to provide information about accommodations and our wedding website. I was initially concerned about getting all of the information on the card but it fit perfectly. The design team adjusted things to ensure it looked great. I appreciated the easy process!"
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!"
