Response cards play an important role in the final stages of wedding planning so you want to be sure to include them when sending out your wedding invitations. That being said, why not also have a little fun with them which is what this post is all about.
For a refresher on all the specifics and etiquette, check out my previous blog post on wedding response cards.
In addition to the basic information that is requested on an RSVP card, there are a couple of other questions you may want to ask. One of them could be their choice of entrée if you are offering options to your guests. You can choose to have the names of the entrée choices printed on the cards or you could creatively have the food choices represented by the appropriate symbol. Pictured here are both options…
You may have noticed on the one design that it also indicated that the reply could be made via email address. Proper etiquette is that you provide the postage stamps on the response card envelopes for the convenience of guests. So including an email address could result in some of the prepaid postage not being used…just something to keep in mind.
One other question you may want to ask on your respond cards pertains to favorite songs your guests would like to be played during the wedding reception. Below is an example that includes wording for requested songs or it could be worded as ‘please tell us your favorite song to get you on the dance floor‘. This information can come in handy when preparing your music play list.
Asking for these extra tidbits of information from your guests on their response cards is a great way to get them engaged and excited for your upcoming wedding.
Most of the time you will find your chosen wedding invitation design has a matching response card so then it’s just a matter of selecting the wording you would like printed on them. Hopefully you have found some inspiration by the ideas mentioned in this post.
