"Stationery"

  • Invitation suite - the entire package that you send to your guests and helps set the tone for the wedding. This can include the save the date, invitation, reply card, reply envelope, reception card, details card, inner/outer envelopes, pocket enclosures, thank you cards
  • Save the Date - most couples choose to send a Save the Date card out to their friends and families about 6-8 months in advance, just so the recipients can get the event on their calendars. This is especially helpful for destination weddings, so people can make travel and lodging arrangements in a timely manner.
  • Invitation - this is the most important piece of your suite. It is the official announcement of your wedding date, and tells guests that they are invited to celebrate with you. The invitation has the pertinent details, such as the date, the venue, and sometimes even a dress code (although that information can be included on a details card). The wording of the invitation can let the guests know if it is formal or casual, in a church or outdoors, etc. and also tells the guests who is hosting the wedding (i.e. bride and groom, bride's parents, groom's parents, or both). Invitations are usually sent 6-8 weeks before your wedding.
  • Reply card & envelope - the reply card is how guests RSVP to your wedding. It usually has room for guests to write their name, the number that will be attending, and a place to select Yes or No. On the reply card, you should request responses to be returned anywhere from 2-4 weeks prior to your wedding, so you can get your final counts to your vendors and can update your calligrapher/stationer for the day-of items (escort/place cards, seating charts, table numbers, etc.). You may or may not choose to include a pre-stamped envelope with your reply card. If your stationer has designed a postcard RSVP, then no envelope is needed (postage is still needed on the postcard, however). (PRO TIP: this is a way to save a little bit of money on your suite!) You may also choose to include meal choices on your reply card, however a separate card may be needed if meal choices are extensive.
  • Reception card - you will need a reception card if your ceremony and reception are at different locations. You may also choose to include a reception card if you have an extended period of time between the ceremony and reception (over an hour).
  • Details card - this is a small insert that tells guests additional information, such as a hotel block, your wedding website, registry, transportation details, etc.
