Is there a difference between a reception card and the rsvp enclosure card?
I am printing my own invites.
Do i put “reception to follow” on the bottom of my invite? if so, do i put the location and address? or do I put the reception info on the rsvp enclosure card that states the number of attendees?
thanks and sorry for all the questions!

A reception card is just a simple card with the name of your reception venue on it and the location. The RSVP enclosure is a card your guests will send back indicating if they’re coming or not and the amount of people attending.
I had a wedding planner do my invitations and at the bottom of my invites it says “Reception to Follow.” Now, if you say that, you need to also print off mini maps off like “Mapquest” showing a sky view of where it is and the address. No need to put all that on the invite if you just simply put “Reception to Follow.” Just make sure you stuff a map in there as well. I think reception cards are a waste on money to be honest. Just say “Reception to Follow” and throw in a small map. But, make sure you put in a RSVP card so they can send that back to you so you can know approx. how many guests are actually coming.
I hope this helps, I know it can be confusing! 🙂

Our reception is at a different venue (religious ceremony) so we decided to a reception card that has the address and our website for directions, etc. Maps seemed a bit superfluous for the many many local guests, but we wanted somewhere to put our website, so this made the most sense.
An RSVP card is different; they’ll send that back to you. Everything else they keep to get them to your wedding on time 🙂
