Yes, of course, the wedding invitation wouldn't be an invitation without the main invitation card itself. All wedding invitations should include the following details.- Who's hosting (you, your parents or other?)- The names of the guests you are inviting- The request to attend the wedding- The names of the couple getting married (first names only or full names?)- The date (including the day of the week)- Ceremony time & location (including address)- Reception time & location (including address)- Dress code- RSVP date & instruction on how to respond
Then there are optional requirements your wedding may have, which you can request answers to on the RSVP card.
Therefore you will need to include the following (at least) on your RSVP card
RSVP cards can be designed in 3 ways
Also I suggest the reply date for your guests to respond by is 4 - 6 weeks before your wedding date.

I think this is an excellent idea if you can coordinate it in time.I have had brides in the past request an additional "Information Card" to be made into their Bridal Shower or Kitchen Tea invitation. It simply gets added to the layer of cards within your invitation suite.And for this type of card, not every invitation suite would have it included, as only a selected number of guests would be attending this type of event.To have these cards included in the right invitation, I would instruct you to nominate who receives them on the guest list you provide me.
This is a given, but I wanted to mention everything that is included in a wedding invitation suite, so its on the list. Generally, this is a standard white envelope in the correct size for your wedding invitation. For example, if your wedding invitation is 15cm x 15cm in size, the envelope will be 16cm x 16cm in size.Please note that for ALL WHITE CHERRY INVITATIONS orders, the envelopes are made to match your wedding invitation in colour and with a matte/metallic finish.
Ok, these are elements which are important but often not spoken about or explained why they are important.Simply said - they hold everything together!Pockets are generally used to hold the insert cards such as the RSVP, wishing well and information cards in a neat little space inside your invitation. And these cards are all layered to sit behind the other perfectly.Belly Bands are mainly used for a flat (not folded) invitation which wraps around the suite, holding the invitation and all insert card pieces together.If you have more than one insert card, you should look at including one of these to ensure your invitation suite is functional too.
As the postage stamp is the last thing to be added to an invitation suite, these are generally forgotten until you go to post your invitations.In Australia, wedding invitations will post for $1.00 - $2.00 each. The postage guide in Australia (as at September 2019) is130mm x 240mm x 5mm thick and up to 250g in weight = $1.00 eachThis would cover RSVP envelopes, A6 sized thank you cards and save the dates and 130mm x 190mm flat invitations.Up to 260mm x 360mm x 20mm thick and up to 125g in weight = $2.00 eachThis would apply to all square 160mm x 160mm invitations.Larger, thicker and heavier than this is additional as per Australia Post.This would need to be checked for hardcover invitations.My advice is to take one invitation to your local post office and ask them to confirm with you how much the invitation will cost to post. Generally the above will be correct, but this is my disclaimer to say you should still check before you post.And of course, if you hand-deliver them, then the postage cost is $0.00
