Wedding Stationery

Everyone knows about wedding invitations, but what about all the other terms and items that are associated with them. Below are explanations of some of the more common terms and items that you’ll probably encounter while shopping for your invitations.

Announcements: For those who you wont invite  to your wedding but you would still like them to know that you are married, you can mail them an announcement card. They are printed on the same paper as your invitation but mailed on your wedding day or immediately after with the wordings stating that your wedding has already taken place.

Reply 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 reply card along with its posting envelope (can be printed with your address www.gibsondoyle.co.uk) will be inserted with your invitation. Remember to include a postage stamp on this small envelope so all your guests have to do is fill out the card and post it back by the date you have printed on it.

Map Directions: These directions would be included as a convenience for any guests who might not be familiar with the location of the church and/or reception.

Save the date Cards: These cards are perfect to announce your coming wedding without revealing the full details, this way you can forewarn your guests to save your date free for a special ocassions.

Not all of the above items are necessary to make your wedding invitations complete but they will help to keep your guests informed and everything else to run smoothly.  Remember, this is your special day, so it’s your decision as to which ones you would like to include as part of your invitation collection.
