What are the parts of wedding invitation suites? How many components are there to a proper invitation?
If you’re a bride-to-be and you’re mailing invites, make sure to have these 5 important parts of the wedding invitation.
In this post, we’ll dive into the wedding invitation suite to explain which parts you need to have so you don’t miss a thing.
Let’s get started!
Wedding Invitation Parts
An invitation has five essential pieces. It is also assembled in this order, in case you were curious how to assemble the invitations, too. :)
1. The Outer Envelope
The outer envelope is one of the most important parts of the wedding invitation. This envelope has a return address, the address of the guests to whom you’re mailing the invitation, and postage on it.
You can skip all the hand-addressing if you get them addressed for free.
2. The Inner Envelope
You address the inner envelope like this, and it remains unsealed.
Inside, you’ll place the following:
3. The Invitation
The card itself is the most important part of the wedding invitation, for obvious reasons: it includes the who, what, when, and where of the wedding day itself.
4. A Reception Card
If the wedding reception is to be held at a different location than the ceremony, you will need a reception card as an enclosure.
The reception card tells guests where the party will be held and at what time it begins.
5. The RSVP Card + Envelope
And lastly, the 2nd most important part of the invitation: the response card.
The RSVP card and envelope are essential parts of wedding invitation suites. They’ll tell you who can attend and how many guests are in attendance, along with their entree(s), if applicable.
It also will indicate whether guests can RSVP online or via mail.
And that’s it! These are the parts every wedding invitation needs to have. If you’d like to include a map, you may; that is optional.
