Sending a response card along with the wedding invitation is often a polite, inclusive way to help ensure the invitation returns to you. The ensemble may also include a folder and envelope. The response card, or folder, is traditionally used for gathering totals for the caterer and getting a general number of guests attending, so that you can arrange an appropriate venue for the amount of people you know are attending. The recipient is asked to mail back the response card or folder roughly two weeks before the wedding or by the 'R.S.V.P' date indicated. The envelope is pre-addressed and pre-stamped by the wedding party for easy return by the prospective guest.
Other pieces of an official wedding invitation often included in the ensemble are the reception card or folder, map or direction card, and accommodation information. The reception card simply lists the addresses and times of any post-wedding events, such as the reception, or a cocktail hour, dinner or dance. Map or direction cards provide details about the location of the wedding and reception. The accommodation information gives helpful tips about airfare, transportation or hotel arrangements for out-of-town guests and local attractions may be featured as well. Oftentimes the accommodation information is sent in advance for guests that are from out-of-town, so that they can arrange their transportation to and from the wedding. Wedding invitations and stationery do not have to be expensive. All you need is a reliable, professional supplier and a reliable printer with the knowledge, experience and creativity to actualize the entire set. When choosing the appropriate stationary and invitations, remember that the wedding invitation will create the first impression on your guests of your upcoming wedding. You should make sure they adequately reflect both the bride and groom's individual tastes, as well as their cultures and customs, if need be. Wedding invitations of the formal kind are usually on white, ivory or ecru card, based on the color of the bride’s dress. The ink is usually dark blue, dark grey, or black.
Whether semi formal, formal, relaxed, kitsch, funky or romantic, the choice rests on the bride, groom and the wedding planners. Today invitations include a variety of textured paper, in a myriad of colors, and portray various photographs, as well as gilt edges,embedded flowers. Some environmentally responsible people may want to use recycled paper for their wedding invitations as well. In essence, the choice is limited by the creativity of the concerned parties. The venue of the wedding also plays a significant role in deciding the nature of the invitations. Churches, beaches, gardens are venues worth considering while planning your wedding invitations, as you may want to include photos of the wedding venue, especially if it is a picturesque spot such as the beach, or a lovely garden. Ensure the wording, spelling, and grammar are all correct, for you do not want your guests to think badly of you for providing them with a poorly-written invitation! Also, while engraving is an option, it is also very expensive. Calligraphy is a less expensive option, and is a graceful and elegant choice for your wedding invitations.
