Four things every couple should enclose with their wedding invites

Four things every couple should enclose with their wedding invites


Written by Katie Byrne


Other than the RSVP card, of course! These are the extras you might want to add inside your envelopes...

 

#1 A map!

If you're holding your wedding at an off-the-beaten-track location, or will need to direct guests from your ceremony location to your reception destination, a map can make a sensible addition to your invites. If you can, ask your stationer to create something - but if you're not bothered, simply provide photocopies or print-outs from the A To Z.

#2 Your gift-list details

Your provider will probably give you insert cards you can include - but if you're asking for something else (for example, cash towards your honeymoon), include a note or poem so guests know what's what. If you'd rather gifts went towards charity, some gift-list providers (such as Prezola) can make this easy for you, too.

#3 A playlist request

For an extra personal touch at your reception, ask your guests to provide the guest-list! Enclose a sheet asking guests to provide the names of three songs that will make them get on the dancefloor, in order to guarantee you create a wedding playlist that pleases everyone.

#4 A hint at the theme 

For example: if you're planning a lavender-infused celebration, include a sprig of the herb inside the envelope. It's not essential, of course, but it can add a neat twist of personality to your plans!
