Invitations Explained...

Choosing invitations can be intimidating if you don't know what some of the terms or names mean. You will find on this Blog explanations to the terms used:

Seal n Send Invitations:
This type of wedding invitation is mailed to guests as a single-folded piece (that does not include an envelope) having the respond postcard attached to the invitation by a perforation for easy removal. Due to the respond piece being a postcard, you will end up saving on postage for the return mailing.

This is often used for people you know that will not be invited to your wedding but you would still like them to know about your marriage, you can mail them an announcement card. This can also be used for family members that live out of town or that are elderly and can't make it. Announcements can be printed on the same paper as your invitation but mailed on your wedding day or immediately after with the wording stating that your wedding has already taken place.

Reception Cards:
This lists all the details for your reception, reception cards can be ordered to match your invitations and then be included as a separate insert. Please keep in mind that this card could possibly add to your mailing cost since postage is based on weight.

Response Cards:

These cards are essential to planning for your dinner/reception since an accurate guest attendance count will be needed for food and seating preparations. The response card along with its mailing envelope will be inserted with your wedding invitation. Remember to include a postage stamp on this small envelope which will also have a mailing address already printed on it so all your guests have to do is fill out the card and mail it back by the date you have printed on it.

Lined Inner Envelopes:
For a small charge, you can request your inner envelopes have a colored lining to add a special touch to your wedding invitation ensemble. Color choices will vary depending on the invitation style you choose. Some selections may include this with the price of the invitations.

Envelope Seals:
These self-adhesive labels add a nice finishing touch. They are available in many styles and are used on your outer envelope making it look like they are holding the flap down even though it has already been sealed.
