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
June 8, 2015Beautiful but long printing process!
"These cards are great. They just took twice as long to print as the invitations, and we needed to reorder more so MORE waiting. If you're not in a hurry, I fully recommend! Paper quality is outstanding..but make sure you have your invites weighed at the post office. I had the square invites, RSVP card AND this enclosure card, it was around $1 for each envelope in postage. Just factor that in the budget!"
May 11, 2015Pretty card, but why include envelopes?
"We used this enclosure card to include some additional details for our guests. This card is the same size as the rsvp card, which is my only negative comment. I would have liked if it was slightly larger to give some variation in sizes. Also, this card came with free envelopes which I thought was strange - in most wedding invitations this card has hotel information (or something similar) and would never need to be mailed back. Nonetheless, I accepted the free envelopes and hope to use them casually."

"The team was able to help personalize my card to match mu invites and also helped layout the text so it looked neat and professional. I am so happy with the outcome."
August 12, 2014Small with big sparkle
"I used this card as the enclosure with wedding website information. I had it printed in gold and white on pearl shimmer paper. It arrived early & was so elegant that I may have actually squealed when I first opened it. It exceeded my expectations!"
August 8, 2014Very versatile!
"Our enclosure card for our wedding invitations turned out great! I loved that we were able to completely personalize it to say everything we wanted to on one card! And it saved us money so we didn't have to get several separate cards to give our guests the information they needed! The design specialists were great in putting little finishing touches to really complete the look. My fiancé and I were very happy with them!"
