I am getting enclosure cards with my invitations but I have no use for them! I am having a small wedding in Mexico and the invites are really casual like, "please help us tie the knot!" I already know who’s going to the wedding so I don’t need RSVP cards. I’m not having welcome baskets so they wouldn’t go with that. I don’t know what to do with them! Any ideas???

You can use them to print your menus or programs

What does the enclosure card say? Anything? What do they look like? That would help us figure out how you might repurpose them :).

You could use them for table numbers or seating assignments, or to leave a little personal note for each guest in their room when they arrive.

can you speak to the invitation company about using whatever the enclosure cards cost seperately towards something else? perhaps, matching thank you cards? or menus?
if they can’t do that and they are printed already, then you could print on the reverse side and back them with card stock (same color as the ink) so no one sees the enclosure printing. you could use them for escort cards, small menus, labels attached to your favors or anywhere else labels can be used (at the bar, buffet, candy buffet, amenities basket – not sure what your plans are)
Or you could use them for non-wedding items, such as gift enclosures. Stamp your name or monogram on top and you’ll have always have a gift tag ready.
Or you can create conversation starters. Print questions or trivia about you and your FH for guests to discuss. You can put them out on the table in a cute box with "did you know?" printed on top so people will be enticed to open the box.
OK wow I’ll stop now…:)

Depending on what you are using as your guest book, you could have your guests write you advice and well-wishes on your wedding day.

You are all so brilliant. These are like 5" by 5" totally blank cards that are white with a navy border (like my invitations.)
I wasn’t sure what they should say because we’re not doing menus or programs or directions or RSVPs or ANYTHING. So, maybe they should be Thank You postcards? Is that tacky? 🙂
Habibi you are a fountain of brilliance! You should make money off your ideas. 🙂

Thanks Jorxa! You are too sweet…
I think thank you cards will totally work. And you should be able to find envelopes if you don’t want to use them as post cards. You just need them to be a little bigger than 5×5. I think 5 1/2 x 5/1/2 is a standard envelope that you can get pretty much anywhere. Just bring one to your local paper store and ask.
Anyone know what size she should look for?
