Winery Wedding Enclosure Cards: Etiquette, Wording & Sizing

Wedding enclosure cards communicate important information to your guests – from reception location and dress code to travel information and additional event details – while maintaining an uncluttered look for your invitations. Wine Country 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 grass, 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.

Finally, our largest enclosure card size is 4.25″ x 5″ and is most often used for directions, hotel and travel information.

All of our enclosure cards are beautifully decorated with the designs from our wine-themed and rustic vineyard wedding invitations to maintain a unified and elegantly coordinated look.

Vineyard Wedding Stationery Idea: Wine Region Table Signs

We love this creative and unique idea for wine theme wedding table signs that one of our clients dreamed up. Instead of using numbers, she named each table after a famous wine region, like Burgundy, Margaux and Chianti. Wine Country Occasions adapted one of our most popular vineyard-themed table number designs to create elegant table signs with coordinating wine place cards. What an unexpected way to play with a wine theme!

DIY Rustic Wedding Favor Idea: Loose Tea

Looking to add a little homemade charm to your rustic or vineyard wedding? Loose tea is an easy DIY wedding favor idea that looks festive, pretty and impressive. Use glass jars and bottles or other wedding favor containers and personalize them with customized labels and favor tags. We used a Dark Rose Tea recipe from Straight from the Farm. This DIY favor idea would also work well for a garden wedding or bridal shower.

Vineyard Wedding Place Card & Escort Card Ideas

There are so many choices to make when planning your vineyard 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: Vineyard Theme Wedding Place Cards & Escort 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 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 guests’ names and table numbers printed on the cards. Or, just have a line for the name and table number printed and write it in later. 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.”

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 mini horseshoes. 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 Wine Cork 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 wine-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.

 

Vineyard Wedding Program Fans

Wedding program fans are ideal for an outdoor rustic or vineyard wedding. They’re hard workers, doing triple-duty as attractive keepsakes, unique wedding programs and fans to help beat the heat! Tie a ribbon around the handles and lay them on guests’ chairs before the ceremony. Or, set them out as a group laid out in a pretty pattern for guests to take.

Our vineyard wedding programs are double-sided and printed on 5 x 7 white card stock with a decorative edge. They fit quite a bit of information on them, from program and reception details to thank you messages. The decorative wooden handles are included.

The designs pictured below are our Grape Wedding Program Fans and Oak Tree Wedding Program Fans.

Ribbon Pocket Invitations for a Rustic or Vineyard Wedding

Make your rustic or winery wedding invitations something special with an elegant ribbon pocket design. There is a real “wow” factor to this look, which comes with a square invitation layered and in a folder, then dressed with a satin ribbon. A stylish emblem on the front adds a personal touch emblazoned with the names of the bride and groom or a monogram.

Wrapped around the front cover, the ribbon creates a “pocket” on the inside cover, perfect for holding enclosure cards and envelopes. The rich, metallic colors of the layering cards add to the opulent look.

This presentation is an exquisite match for our Grape Leaf Ribbon Pocket Invitation or Elegant Vineyard Ribbon Pocket Invitation, as pictured below. The moment your guests slide these beauties out of the envelope, they will know they are in for one special celebration!

5 Wine-Themed Table Sign Ideas for a Vineyard Wedding

Below are five elegant ways to display table numbers at a vineyard wedding. To keep it simple, use a rustic card holder or layered tent card. Of course, we love wine bottles that double as table sign holders – it’s such a practical and seamless way to extend the vineyard theme.

Below, we have displayed our Vineyard Motif Table Sign in a rustic real-wood place card holder made to look like a tree trunk or log. Another idea is to use wine-colored ribbon to drape the card around a wine bottle, adding a wrought-iron candelabra for height and romantic lighting. A wine label table number transforms an ordinary wine bottle into a personalized centerpiece and wedding favor.

For a fun DIY project cut a small slit into the top of a wine cork and: Voila! You have a makeshift card holder that can be placed into the neck of a wine bottle for a gorgeous effect. Finally, you could simply add a layered tent card to create a table sign that stands on its own.
