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.

November 11, 2014perfect
"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 !"
October 14, 2014Rehearsal Dinner Invitation
"I used this card as an invitation to the rehearsal dinner that was taking place at the same venue (Bed and Breakfast) where the guest would be staying over for either the rehearsal dinner and wedding or just coming in for the wedding. This was a subtle invitation that did not take away from the wedding invitation but was a beautiful complement!"
March 1, 2014If only I could give 6 stars to customer service
"I really wanted a two sided direction card because I needed directions to church and then from church to the reception venue. Because my design is pretty minimal they had no problem doing that and at no extra charge. I also got this in purple with the shimmer. Great size too!"
October 1, 2013Love them!
"We wanted something simple, classy, and fit us. This was definitely it! We required some edits to the wording and Wedding Paper Divas were more than accomodating. I also added the accomodations to the back expecting it to be plain white with brown lettering, but to my surprise they had it match the front!!"
