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
April 13, 2015Additional Info
"Personally - with technology these days - I don't really see a need for a directions card - people are saavy enough nowadays to figure that out. So.... I was SOOO happy that I was able to tailor this insert to use at my disposal! I used it as an "additional information" card and included topics like accommodations, parking, and general information/timelines. This card was perfectly changeable and helped tremendously!"

"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."
June 30, 2014Very cute
"We actually used this as 'Reception' Cards rather than direction cards, so we put on information about when and where the cocktail hour and reception will be. I added the pearlized finish, which I really like. The online proof was helpful because they centered things in a way that the website wouldn't allow me to do and it looked very nice."
