Small + Large Enclosures Wording 101

Large and Small Enclosures

All of our stationery suites are a fully customizable package! Our small and large enclosure cards are inserts that go along with the wedding invitation and response card and is where our couple’s choose to put all of the additional information that wouldn’t normally go on their wedding invitation.


The small enclosure is recommended as a reception card if your reception is at a different venue than your ceremony. Typically, the header would say “Reception” or “Join Us” followed by the venue name and address, along with the start time. Any other information such as “adults only” or what will be served such as “cocktails, dinner, and dancing.” Wording is fully customizable; therefore, this card can be used for any small amount of information. Many people also use the small enclosure as their registry or wishing well card.

You can also use the small and large enclosures for any other information that would benefit guests – wedding websites, registries, morning after brunch, rehearsal dinner, etc.


The large enclosure is normally used for accommodations, additional information, or directions if you are having out of town guests or if you have blocked off rooms at a hotel. The large enclosure works best with any large amount of information. As shown in the image above, the large enclosure has been used for local hotels that have been blocked off, shuttle transportation information, and the couple’s website for additional information. Many couples choose to add most information on their wedding website as to keep their small and large enclosure clean and minimal. Some couples even opt to put their wedding website on the response card and opt out of having a small and large enclosure. Because our stationery is fully customizable, the possibilities are endless!
