INVITATIONS – WHAT'S INCLUDED:
Invitation – Include the information of who is giving the wedding, who is getting married, and where and when the ceremony will take place.
Reply card – Include a place for invitees to indicate how many people will be attending as well as their meal choice.
Reception card – Provide the date, time and location of the reception. Maps and directions are not traditional, but are now commonplace.
Envelope – One or two. Traditionally, invitations had two envelopes – one outside with the addressee’s information, and one inside with the names of those invited (Mr. and Mrs. Miller). Now it is more common to address a single envelope to all those specifically invited. Either is correct.
*Etiquette says never to include your registry information in the invitation.
Tip: Make sure to order extra envelopes, because inevitably mistakes will happen while addressing.
