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 21, 2015Perfectiopn
"Great option for including that bit of extra information much needed by your guests. This design offered space for a large amount of text on a small card. We used it to write a short note to our guests. Included on ours were accommodation options, preferred dress, and a bit about the venue of the ceremony. Loved the little detail of the drawing on the back. Very clean design!"

"I used the enclosure card and created my Rehearsal Dinner invitation. It worked out beautifully! I used Wedding Paper Divas for all my wedding needs and am thrilled with the results and products I received. I would use them again and again!"
August 3, 2014Lovely "nature" design
"This small card provided the perfect way to add extra information to the invitation about website and registry that is not typically part of the formal invitation. I wish the card had been slightly larger. After the creative team sent the first proof , they were able to "tweek" the colors and get them just right. The customer service representative was profoundly knowledgeable and listened to everything that I mentioned to her. Overall, this product and the ordering experience was superb."
July 22, 2014Long term relationship
"I thought this was the perfect card for a relationship that has gone on for quite a while. I used the wedding colors in the card. The direction card has some body to it which I think is good for folks who need the printed card."
June 21, 2013very happy!
"We liked the simplicity of the card and kept color/text as it was shown. We used this directions card as an RSVP card for other wedding events so it could be distinguished from the card for the main event. The day guest received their invites they were texting me so say how beautiful it was. (this didn't matter so much to me because we loved it but it was certainly nice to hear!)"
