Your wedding invitations are very important – not because a piece of paper will make or break your wedding, but because they are the first glimpse your guests will get into your wedding. Therefore, you want to impress them and make them actually want to come and party for your love story.
What are some of the essential tips you should keep in mind when it comes to wedding invitation etiquette, though? Read on and find out more!
- Yes, it is perfectly acceptable and actually recommended to include a map, GPS locations, and other instructions to help your guests find the venue. Sprinkle your map with interesting attractions and restaurants your guests might want to check out (when the wedding is not happening, of course) – people will love that!
- You can and should include a wedding website card too. This little enclosure can save you from so much trouble! Not only will you be able to publish any wedding-related news there, but you will be able to announce the hotel reservations, post pictures from the “making of” the wedding and, yes, you will be able to lead guests towards your wedding registry as well.
- NO, you cannot include wedding registry info on any of the invitation enclosures. This is considered to be bad manners and it should definitely be avoided at all times. It’s much better to do this only on the wedding website and/or by word of mouth.
- DO include RSVP cards and DO make sure you make them clear. For instance, if children are not invited to the wedding, you can clearly specify Mr. and Mrs. on the RSVPs (instead of “and family”). Also, if you see guests are not sending back their RSVPs by the deadline, it is quite OK to call them and ask them if they will be able to make it to the wedding. It is understandable if some of them can’t make it, but even so, you need to collect a final head count – so yes, they will definitely understand why you need to call them.
