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
February 11, 2015Up, Up and Away
""Designers were easy to work with and helped my customize. Shipping was fast and came exactly when expected, and items were great quality. My only tiny gripe is that the design seemed to have sparkle in it on the website, but when it arrived the glittered sections were not glittery, just printed to look as if they were. Not a big deal at all, but should be noted. Live chat was very helpful too.""
July 23, 2014Overly Pleased
"I was thrilled when these invitations arrived. I did tons if personalization so I wasn't sure how it would turn it. It turned out perfectly! Couldn't be happier. I was surprised how much I loved the paper. It's a textured one which is the standard with the purchase. I added a picture to this review to show off the invitations"
May 23, 2014Loved them!
"I ordered these cards and actually used them in conjunction with magnet announcements as save the dates. I was able to completely customize the lettering (I changed 'Details' to the date of my reception) and they turned out fantastic! The whole design is gorgeous and will go perfect with our vintage chic theme"
August 6, 2013The Perfect Accompaniment
"I used these cards to give guest hotel accommodation information. Everything was completely customizable and matched perfectly to my invites and RSVP cards. The card size is about the same as the RSVP card but in portrait (not landscape)... it's the perfect accompaniment to the invitation suite!"
June 29, 2013Love the Set!
"I wasn't sure about ordering these at first, but I'm sure glad I did! They are the perfect size for a little more information for your guests. I used it to include hotel information, our wedding website address and directions. I have gotten so many compliments on this set! Definitely recommend!"
