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
December 22, 2014BEST PART OF PURCHASE!
"I ordered the Invites, Response cards and these Enclosure cards and these were by far the best deal. We used them as directions to the venue. They let me have text on both sides of the enclosure card for no extra cost && the customer service representatives helped me to tactfully include our registry information on this card. Definitely worth the extra money to get enclosure cards"

"I love this idea and can't wait to see what our guests write. The cards are beautiful, exactly what I expected. The writing is very light though, so if you prefer something more bold, order it with darker script. The cards were a bit smaller than I had imagined, but that's not good or bad, just different than I had expected. They really are beautiful!"

"We used this card for Hotel Recommendations. They matched our other cards perfectly. We were able to have all of the information that we needed to communicate on the card. I love that you can customize the card to have whatever information you want or need."

"We chose to use this as an information card with directions and our wedding website so it wasnt as full as in the example. the designer adjusted spacing and size and even added more colored font and they really look wonderful. we chose oasis and leaf from the custom colors and they are beautiful."
