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.

June 15, 2015Best map design ever!
"I'm so happy with this purchase! I ordered Sunday and received email proofs Monday am! So easy to work with this company! They shipped just a couple days after the proofs were approved, very pleased! Quality was great! I couldn't find a JPEG to submit that showed everything I needed some have a start and end point and the most beautiful map was designed for me even better than I imagined! Sooooo worth it!!"
May 1, 2015Perfect
"I ordered these as enclosure card for my rehearsal dinner information. The were shipped quickly once I reviewed the final product."
March 12, 2015Perfect Addition
"We debated adding Accommodations cards to our invitations since we have a website and assumed people could get their information there. However, I am so glad I changed my mind! These are perfectly matched to my invitations and they are the perfect size...about the same size as the response card. They shouldn't drive up shipping costs when sending the invites. I modified the card to say the name of our hotel block in the top box above the hotel information and used the bottom box (under the address) to include information about the wedding website. I love that someone edits each card personally to catch minor grammatical errors, etc."
February 7, 2015Clean and classic
"A pretty addition to the invitation. We wanted a look that was mildly botanical but not overly flowery, and clean and this design fit perfectly! I ordered the pearlescent paper and tucked with the invitation, it has a very nice presentation."
September 19, 2014Perfect for our destination wedding
"We had these in the regular textured paper and they looked fantastic. The back of it with the starfish was sooo pretty. I've seen reviews that say they are too small, but the 2x2 was perfect to add just a bit of extra information. We used this card to add wedding website since we are having a destination wedding. Perfect addition to our wedding suite."
