Beach Wedding Enclosure Cards: Etiquette, Wording & Sizing

From reception location and dress code to travel information and additional event details, wedding enclosure cards convey important information to your guests, while maintaining an uncluttered look for your invitations. Beach Front Occasions offers three sizes, all with 100% customize-able wording.

Our mini card is 2″ x 3.5″ like a standard business card and is most often used for:

RSVP Instructions: Wedding invitations often include a reply card with a self-addressed stamped envelope. But, with more and more wedding information being housed on personalized websites, many clients opt to include an enclosure card with instructions to RSVP on a website or to an email address.

Gift Registry: According to Martha Stewart, it is never OK to include your gift registry information with your invitations. Etiquette rules have loosened up around this issue. While it might be not be appropriate information for the invitation itself, many people include a small enclosure card with the registry information. Another option is to include it on your wedding website only. Donation information in lieu of gifts would also be appropriate to include on a separate card.

Website: Including your wedding website on your invitation is perfectly acceptable, etiquette-wise. If your invitations are getting too cluttered, a small enclosure card is good choice.

Attire: If the wedding dress code is easily conveyed in a few words (i.e. “Black Tie”) it is fine to include it on the invitation itself. For attire suggestions that are more involved (i.e., “Wear attire for a cool summer evening” or “Reception takes place on sand, please avoid heels”) it is best to include a separate card.

The next size up we offer is 3.5″ x 5″ and is most often used for:

Reception Information: If your wedding reception is being hosted at a different location than the ceremony, proper etiquette says to include this information on a separate card.

Directions: If you are including a card with directions to the wedding site, the venue address should only appear here and not on the invitation as well.

Hotel & Travel Information: For your out of town guests, or for a destination wedding, you might want to include a card with information about area hotels. Streamline the wording by referring guests to your website for more information.

Additional Events: If there are additional events planned, such as a rehearsal dinner or post-wedding brunch, a medium-sized enclosure card should be included as a separate invitation. It is especially important to include it separately if not all guests are invited.

All of our enclosure cards are beautifully decorated with the designs from our beach wedding invitations to maintain a unified and elegantly coordinated look.

Beach Wedding Place Card and Escort Card Ideas

There are so many choices to make when planning your beach wedding. Among them is how you would like to let your guests know where to sit at the reception. Below are a few options:

Use Escort Cards: Escort cards are usually arranged – in alphabetical order – at the reception entrance with the guest’s name and table number. These are used to “escort” the guest to his or her table. Flat cards laid out on a table – with or without an envelope – is one display option, as pictured below in one of our most popular designs: Two Starfish Place Cards.

On our site, escort cards are entirely customize-able. One option is to write the guest’s name on the outside of the envelope. In that case, the assigned table number is usually written on the card inside. Cards laid out without an envelope often include both the guest’s name and the table number. Flat cards can also be displayed in beach place card holders.

Tent cards are another popular way to go (see photo below). The wording on escort cards can be changed to suit your style. You can have a line printed on the cards where guests’ names and table numbers can be written in. You also have the option to include an “M” at the beginning of the name line for guests to finish – filling in Ms., Mrs., Mr. or Mr. & Mrs. Some people prefer to leave out the “M.”

les are getting creative with how they are displaying escort cards at their wedding. Instead of lining them up on a table, they pin the cards onto a clothesline or attach them to an object, like a piece of fruit or to wedding favors, like these white starfish. The only limit is your imagination.

Use Place cards: Place cards usually include guests’ names and are placed at the table itself, at a specific table setting. Place cards are most often used when there are assigned seats – not just assigned tables. Many couples opt for tent cards or use place card holders like the Pewter Sea Shell Place Card Holders pictured below.

Escort cards are also sometimes used as place cards when guests place them at a specific place setting to reserve a particular seat at their assigned table. Our beach-themed place cards are also customize-able, allowing you to choose whether you would like to have a name line printed or an “M” included.
