What’s in a Wedding Invitation?

By Ashlea

The hardest part of wedding invitations, once you found the perfect design, is what pieces to the invitation you need to include. There are several options to choose from, depending on how traditional or non-traditional you want to go. Here at Shine Wedding Invitations, we offer all of our pieces a la carte letting you completely customize your wedding stationery suite!

Paper

We have three options for paper, all of which are professionally printed using a high quality commercial press that results in bold saturated colors and rich text.

Our most popular choice for paper is our Signature Shimmer. It is a 137lb heavyweight card stock with a white base and a subtle shimmer finish – it truly is very elegant. Our Signature Shimmer also comes in Ivory, upon request, and has the same subtle shimmer finish but with a gorgeous ivory tone.

We also offer our Luxe Matte paper. It is 130lb upscale heavyweight card stock with a lush, matte, uncoated finish.

Invitation

The invitation is the main part of the wedding stationery suite and is printed on your choice of signature shimmer or luxe matte paper. The invitation includes the wording to your ceremony – time, date, location, etc. Wording is fully customizable based on your preference!

Response Cards 

Traditionally, the response card is the card in which the guest fills out and mails back letting you know if they can make it or not. This usually includes their meal of choice (if you are having a sit down dinner) and how many guests (if any) they are bringing. You can also get creative with this as to the wording you choose for Accepts and Regrets, but we will touch more on that later!

Elegant RSVP card

Many couples are choosing to use this card without an envelope and having the guests RSVP through their website which they add to the response cards.

 

Small Enclosure 

Our small enclosure is recommended as a reception card if your reception is at a different venue than the ceremony. The venue names, address, and starting time will go onto this piece. The small enclosure is best used for any small amount of information that is traditionally not on the main wedding invitation.

There are several other options to use a small enclosure card:

– Reception Card

– Registry Information

– Wishing Well

– Wedding Website Information

– Morning After Brunch

– Rehearsal Dinner

– Day After Plans

The possibilities are endless and wording is fully customizable!

Large Enclosure

Our large enclosures are recommended for anything that will have a detailed amount of information, such as accommodations, travel, additional information, or directions.

Our large enclosures can also be used for any of information for the small enclosure above if you have a decent amount of information.

Envelopes

Our invitations comes standard with our A7 white signature shimmer or luxe matte envelopes. We also offer inner(A7)/outer(A8) envelopes as well. For inner and outer envelopes, the invitation is stuffed in the inner envelope with an informal mention of exactly who is invited while the outer A8 envelope is reserved for the guests formal name and address. Using outer envelopes is the most traditional form; however, most couples are opting out and just using standard A7 envelopes.

Guest Addressing and Return Addressing 

We offer guest addressing and return addressing for each of our invitation and response envelopes. Just provide us with your guests names and addresses and we will do all the work for you! However, if guest addressing isn’t in your budget, any ball point pen will work as well as any permanent marker style art pen. We recommend practicing with any pen before addressing any envelopes, just to make sure it is what you are looking for.

Guest Addressing and Return Addressing on A7 Standard Envelopes

For guest addressing, the names and addresses will be printed on the front with fonts to match your suite, in black ink. Return addressing is printed on the back flap of the envelopes in fonts to match your design as well. Our response card envelopes are standard A1 and we offer return addressing as well, which is printed on the front of the envelope.

Envelope Liners 

If you are looking for a pop of color, we recommend our DIY envelope liners. They come fully customizable in any color combination or pattern in our Shine color chart! Our envelope liners come with tape strips and instructions and are easy to assemble! It is a great way to add a bit of whimsy or sophistication to your wedding invitation suite.

Wrappers

Belly Band Wrapper

Also known as belly bands, wrappers are another way to add a pop of color to your invitation suite. They are also a great way to keep all of the components of the suite together while adding a nice touch with either your monogram, wedding date, names, or just a pop of color! Our wrappers are also DIY and come with glue dots and instructions for easy assembly.
