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!"

"These are adorable cards, perfect for that extra memo for your guests. They are on the smaller side, so try to limit the length of the message. I used these for our wedding website address, and just wish our website address we used was shorter so it didn't look like it was running off the card. Otherwise I love these cards!"
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."

"Love that you can work with a designer to customize the design. We wanted a different color for some of the text. The designers went through a few back and forths till we got the design just right. I appreciate the time they took to listen. End product was just what we wanted."
