Thoughts on Reply Cards

When it comes to reply cards I always prefer to go with a simpler approach rather then a busier looking card. But on the other hand I've also designed reply cards that needed to include menu options, or dietary restrictions, shuttle bus options as well as next day brunch reply. Yes probably a bit overwhelming. Well for starters make sure to include a proper reply date. Reply cards are usually expected back one month before your wedding date. Below are design options as well as various wording examples you may want or need to consider.
