What’s Included In A Wedding Invitation Suite?

Nowadays a Wedding Invitation is no longer just a single Invitation and RSVP Card… A typical Wedding Invitation Suite is made up of 2, 3, or even 4 little inserts. So in this post I thought I’d explain exactly what some of these inserts are… to be honest… some are necessary, but some are simply just nice to have. But at least once you know what they are, you can decide on the ones you need and the ones you don’t…

WEDDING INVITATION – Your Wedding Invitation provides your guests with all of the details of your wedding. But whether you like it or not, your Wedding Invitation also sets the tone of your day – so be careful to choose a design that reflects you and the style of day you’re having.

INFORMATION CARD – An Information or Details Card typically includes details about your day that you want/need your Guests to know about. Common details are; the full address of the Ceremony and Reception venue(s), dress code, transportation, hotel and accommodation, nearby parking, gift registry, RSVP and contact details.

DIRECTIONS CARD – A Directions Card may include the full address of your Wedding Venue(s), GPS coordinates, road routes, bus routes, train routes, local airports and nearby parking and maybe a map.

RSVP CARD – An RSVP or Reply Card is required if you want your Guests to ‘reply’ and let you know whether or not they’ll be attending your Wedding. At a minimum it will include a date by which your Guests should return the Reply Card and a space for your Guests to write their names.

These days you may also ask your Guests to include any special dietary requirements and any of their favourite song choices for the reception playlist.

GIFT CARD – A Gift Card is typically a small card that lets your Guests know that you’ve set up a Gift Registry at your favourite shop. They will include the web address of your shop and your personal login code.

If you haven’t set up a Gift Registry you may choose to include a little poem requesting monetary gifts only, a short paragraph requesting no gifts at all or details of how your Guests could donate to your favourite charity.

RECEPTION CARD – A Reception Card is an ‘American tradition’ that is now becoming more and more common in the UK. These cards are a simplified version of your main Invitation, but it only includes the your Reception details – such as time, date and venue location.

*TAXI CARDS, I’d never have thought of these, but one of my Brides requested that I create a mini Taxi Card for her Guests as she wanted her guests to be able to simply hand over the card to their taxi driver with the full addresses of the Ceremony and Reception Venues.

So I hope this has given you a better idea on what some of the most common Wedding Invitation inserts are. Let me know in the comments below if you think you’ll include any of them in your Wedding Invitation Suite…

Love, Leonie xx
