Your RSVP Card

Your RSVP Card // Uppercase Designs

One of the most essential components for your wedding invitation suite is the RSVP card. Also referred to as the response or reply card, the RSVP card is included with your invitation and how your guests will let you know if they will or will not be able to attend your wedding. A pre-stamped and pre-addressed envelope is included with the RSVP card in order to make it easy for your guests to send their response. Whether your wedding style is traditional or unconventional, you can stylize your RSVP cards so they stand out as a fun element of your invitation suite, yet continue to serve the primary function of obtaining an accurate guest count and guests’ entrée choices. Response card etiquette requires that the following information is included on the RSVP card.

What to Include on the RSVP Card

  • Accept and decline checkboxes.

  • A place for your guests to fill in the names of the people attending.

  • Entrée options for guests to select their meal choice. This will only be included on the RSVP card if you are offering multiple entrée options for a plated dinner.

  • Respond by date. I suggest the RSVP deadline should be 1 month out from your wedding date.

There is no “correct” way to word your RSVP cards. There are endless wording options to reflect the style of your wedding, whether it be formal or on the casual side. A traditional RSVP card might opt for the classic “Accepts” or “Regrets”, in addition to listing out the entrée options such as Chicken, Steak, or Vegetarian. An offbeat wedding response card might say something quirky like “Wouldn’t Miss It” or “Will Be There in Spirit” with entrée options depicted as an illustration of a chicken, cow, or vegetable.

The response card envelope, displaying the return address and postage, is sent to your guests with the response card so they can quickly and easily return their RSVP. If you wish to cut costs, I recommend saving a little money by sending out a postcard RSVP. RSVP postcards are a wonderful alternative to traditional response cards and envelopes. Postcards are even easier for guests to drop in the mail, though they may get a little dirty on their way back to you being that they aren’t protected by an envelope.

You may also want to consider numbering your response cards so even if a guest’s handwriting is illegible or she forgets to write her name, you will know who the card belongs to. Once you get your responses back in the mail, you will be able to give your caterer, venue, and any additional wedding professional a head count of expected attendees.

Wedding Day Stationery List Guide

Wedding Day Stationery List Guide // Uppercase Designs

When couples are planning their wedding, invitations are the focus of the paper goods discussion, but don’t forget about your day-of items! Your wedding day stationery will serve as a vital part of your wedding day aesthetic, not to mention all the important information these items will provide your guests. From programs to favor tags, I have compiled a list of all the wedding stationery you will need for your big day.


Programs are informative and give guests an idea of what to expect throughout the ceremony. Guests enjoy reading up on your ceremonial details while waiting for the event to begin. This essential paper good details the names of the bridal party, readings, a listing of music, poems, a note of thanks to the guests, and, if desired a memorial. If your wedding is traditional or formal, you may prefer to stick to the basic elements of a program, though you can get really creative with this piece.

Escort Cards or Seating Chart

Usually positioned near the entrance of the reception location, escort cards feature guests’ names and corresponding table numbers, so they know which table they will be sitting at during the reception. If you wish to forgo escort cards altogether, a seating chart is another option I offer. Seating charts detail each guest’s name and table assignment on a sizable stylish sign that would be positioned in an easily accessible area at the reception.

Table Numbers

Once guests determine their table assignment from either an escort card or a seating chart, table numbers make it easy for guests to locate their designated table at the reception. You may opt to keep it simple with classic number assignments or incorporate a logo or symbol of special significance to you and your partner.

Place Cards

Place cards are used when seating arrangements are assigned at the reception. Place cards are an ideal choice for formal weddings when plated dinners will be served according to the guest’s meal choice, which is also often noted on the place card in some fashion. I recommend using place cards in conjunction with escort cards or a seating chart.

Dinner Menu

Whether you are serving a buffet-style meal or a seated dinner, guests appreciate you sharing the specifics of the dinner that will be served at your reception. Even when guests pre-select their meal choice, it’s not uncommon for them to forget which meal option they decided on months beforehand. Menus can be provided to each individual guest, each table, or a positioned at each buffet station.


Decorative wedding signs may be used in multiple different ways throughout your big day.

Drink Sign

Much like the dinner menus, guests typically want to know what libations are on the drink menu. Position two framed drink menus at either end of the bar to include either the alcohol options available or feature the signature cocktail names and details.

Welcome Sign

A welcome sign is a beautiful way to greet guests as they arrive at your ceremony and reception. Welcome signs often feature the couple’s names, wedding date, and a welcoming greeting.

Hashtag Sign

Creating a unique wedding hashtag and displaying it to your guests is a great way to get them involved in capturing the excitement of your wedding and sharing it on social media where you can look back and enjoy reliving your special day. Feature your wedding hashtag on a sign near the guest book or welcome sign and around the bar areas where guests are sure to notice it while they mingle.

Favor Tags

Make your wedding favors stand out with personalized favor tags that feature the names of the couple, the wedding date, and a note of thanks or an adorable pun that reflects the favor. Little details such as this make all the difference to your guests.

While everyone’s wedding will be unique in its own way, carefully coordinated wedding day stationery will delight guests with its designs and details, while keeping them informed throughout your wedding day events.

Wedding Invitation Etiquette

Wedding Invitation // Uppercase Designs

A great deal of etiquette is involved with all aspects of your wedding and that includes creating your wedding invitations. From when to send your invitations to the information that should be included, I have detailed all you need to know before sending out your save-the-dates and wedding invitations.

When to Send Invitations

I recommend couples send their save-the-dates at least 6-7 months before the wedding. Some may opt to send their save-the-dates even earlier since there’s no such thing as too much notice. Wedding invitations should be mailed to guests about 2 months in advance. If your wedding is taking place on a holiday weekend, consider sending out your invitations even further in advance to allow guests plenty of time to make plans and secure accommodations.

RSVP Deadline

The RSVP deadline for your guests should fall about 3-4 weeks prior to your wedding date. To avoid guests missing this important detail, I recommend making the date clear and prominent on the invitation. You may inevitably end up calling a few people who didn’t RSVP on time, but to ensure that as many guests RSVP as possible, always include a stamp on each RSVP envelope.

The Registry Rule

Registry information should never be listed on your save-the-date or invitation. Keep the focus away from gifts and instead direct your guests to your wedding website where you can provide them with all the need-to-know information, including where you are registered. I should mention one special caveat: bridal shower invitations. It’s perfectly acceptable to include your registry information on bridal shower invitations as the point of the event is to shower the bride with gifts.

Important Information to Include

The style and details of wedding invitations will vary from one couple to the next, but there are some things that remain constant. Basic information to include on all wedding includes the full names of the couple. The addition of the of parents names or those hosting the event is optional. Your invitations also need to detail the location and date of the wedding, in addition to RSVP information and accommodations.

You might be wondering how many pieces of paper you need to include in your invitation suite. The wedding invitation itself is imperative along with the RSVP card (unless you plan to have guests RSVP online). If your reception is being held in a separate location you may want to include a reception card. Finally, the directions and accommodations cards will also contain information your guests need to know. Some couples may opt to add a weekend itinerary, though this is information you can include on your wedding website if desired.

Dress Up Your Wedding Invitations // Uppercase Designs

From the gown to the flowers and cake, so much goes into wedding planning. Don’t overlook the opportunity your invitations offer to further reflect and represent your unique and personalized wedding style.

1. Envelope Liner

Want to add the wow factor? Look no further than envelope liners. Guests will literally get their first glimpse of your wedding aesthetic when they carefully open your invitation envelope and take a peek inside at your pretty liner. Envelope liners are a fun way to add pattern, texture, color, or your monogram to your invitations.

2. Calligraphy

Whether handwritten or digitized, wedding invitations featuring calligraphy are endlessly chic. If your wedding is formal or even less traditional, calligraphy is the perfect way to add soft graceful flourishes to your invitations and envelope addressing. Not to mention your place cards, escort cards and day-of signage. If you want the elegant look and feel of calligraphy without the cost associated with this time-consuming and high specialized task, consider calligraphy in the form of printed typography. It’s just like the real thing for a fraction of the cost.

3. Wax Seals

Inspired by old-world elegance, wax seals are one of our favorite wedding invitation adornments. Wax seals are effortlessly romantic and available in an array of colors so you can select one that perfectly complements your invitation suite. The wax stamp can feature your first name initials, last name initials, or a personalized symbol that is special to you.

4. Silk Ribbon

Wedding invitations delicately wrapped with hand-tied silk ribbons offer a soft organic touch. Add this simple yet rich embellishment to your invitations for added depth and texture. Beautiful silk ribbons and bows are a unique finishing touch your guests are sure to notice.

5. Postage

Take your wedding stationery up a notch with individualized wedding invitation postage. Personalized postage offers complete originality with custom designs created to reflect your wedding invitation style. You can opt for a specialized motif or monogram featured in your desired color or font. These one-of-a-kind stamps are a special touch that will tie your entire wedding invitation suite together.

There are countless ways to embellish and individualize your wedding invitations so they stand out to your guests and reflect the style of your wedding. Even the smallest details surrounding your big day should be announced in impressive style, complete with unique adornments that reflect your personality as a new couple.

My Wedding Invitations are Semi-Custom

Uppercase Designs Invitations

Your wedding invitations establish the overall aesthetic of your wedding and give guests an introduction of what’s to come. Uppercase Designs works closely with couples to create custom or semi-custom invitations and paper goods to fit the style and personality of your event. With so many wedding invitation options available, it can be overwhelming. You are not alone if you don’t know where to start.

Semi-Custom Invitations

My Wedding Collection Semi-Custom Invitations are ideal for couples that desire simplicity and beautiful designs. Let me guide you through an effortless selection process to find the perfect invitation and matching wedding stationery that will carry you through each step and event leading up to and including your wedding day. When you order from me, you can expect the finest designs, superior quality, and one-on-one personalized service from an expert invitation designer.

My artfully curated semi-custom invitations are designed to make the process of choosing your wedding invitations simple. Semi-custom invitations are perfect for couples who are mindful of their invitation budget, but may wish to make some minor customizations. Many online sites offering semi-custom invitations may restrict the ability to make changes to the design (often limited to names, date, time and location). Wording templates may also be restricted due to layout and spacing. I, however, offers clients the option to alter invitation colors and fonts in addition to changing wording templates, names, dates, times and location. You will also be given the opportunity to select the paper stock that best suits your taste and style. Depending on how far out you are from your wedding, semi-custom invitations could be a great choice due to the simplified design process and shorter timeline.

Custom Invitations

For the unique wedding couple with custom taste and an eye for design, I’m pleased to offer custom invitations. I offer custom designed save-the-dates, invitations, programs, and additional wedding stationery that will reflect your personal style. Digital, thermography, and foil print stationery are currently offered with the Custom Collection. Commemorate this most special occasion with an exclusive and singular design. With custom wedding invitations, the sky’s the limit!

As the process for designing custom invitation designs requires additional time, the design process should begin at least 6-7 months out. Your wedding invitations should be ordered 3-4 months in advance to allow time for assembly and addressing. To help assist in the process, I do offer assembly and addressing services. Custom Design pricing is unique to each client and based on a number of various factors. A quote will be prepared based on your design and color preferences, print type, quantity, and additional touches. The custom designed invitation suite includes a $300 design fee. The design fee is a one-time charge for your wedding invitations and day-of stationery.

There are many factors that will determine whether semi-custom or custom invitations are the right choice for your wedding. Keep your timeline, desired budget, and design style in mind when weighing your options. If you’re not sure which route to choose, contact me and tell us about your wedding day! I can review all your options and help you find the perfect invitations for your special day.
