Wedding reception invitations are traditionally included with the wedding invitation
but sometimes are sent on their own. Your wedding reception invitations should match and compliment your wedding invitation but should still have a few unique details of their own. This could be choosing another shade of the same color, a complimentary color, a different type of paper, or even a unique shape of paper. Keep an open mind about your options and you might be surprised with the results. The information that you include on your wedding reception invitations is vital, so be sure to have someone double-check it for typos and accuracy. This information should include: the name and location of the reception venue, a contact person in case someone gets lost, and perhaps even a small map of the area to help your guests find their way to the reception site more easily. You should also include any information that your guests might need to know about the reception such as 'alcohol-free', 'bring your own beverage', 'prepare for a long and full night of dancing', or any other comments to help them to better plan their attire and schedule.
