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.

May 18, 2015Spacious Enclosure Card
"The quality is wonderful and there was plenty of space to include a lot of information. We wished to save funds by including hotel and wedding website information on the front and directions on the back. It was just what we hoped it would be! Very classy...or should I say, very vintage!"
March 17, 2015Perfect sized enclosure card
"I used this enclosure card for a separate Reception information card. I wrote a line inviting guests to the reception after the ceremony, and included the address as well as the overnight accommodation information since the reception was host in the hotel we blocked rooms at. I also fit a line at the bottom of the page directing guests to our wedding website for more information. I worked with the design team to customize a font size in the middle of the page and they were very helpful to work with. They continued to send me revisions until it was exactly what I was looking for. I had a very positive experience creating this enclosure."

"When I was filling out the information for the enclosure card, I ran out of space and had to manipulate the text and spacing. When I received the proof, the amazing design team had fixed the font and sizing to include everything I wanted with the spacing that I could not get to fit. I was blown away because I did not ask them to do that. They truly go above and beyond for their customers!! Thank You!!"
