What to Include in Your Luxury Wedding Invitations

When planning a luxury wedding, every detail matters, and your wedding invitations are no exception. They serve as the first glimpse into your wedding's style and set the tone for the entire event. To create a lasting impression and ensure your guests feel truly special, it's essential to craft luxurious wedding invitations. In this blog, I'll explore what to include in your luxury wedding invitations to make them unforgettable.

The basics of course include your names, wedding date & time, location(s), RSVP date but after this is when you can get creative and add more information for your guests. Wedding invitations can be 1 piece of card or several and here’s some ideas to consider including…

Dress Code and Etiquette

For a luxury wedding, specifying the dress code on the invitation is crucial. Whether it's black tie, cocktail attire, or beach chic, make it clear to your guests so they can prepare accordingly. Additionally, include any specific etiquette guidelines, such as whether children are invited or any cultural customs they should be aware of.

Gift List

Most couples today don’t necessarily want the traditional wedding gifts and there are several ways to kindly ask for no gifts or alternatives (i.e. donations towards honeymoons or charity). Therefore make sure you are both on the same page when it comes to what types of gifts you are asking for.


A luxury wedding invitation suite typically includes an RSVP card with a pre-addressed and stamped envelope. This not only adds convenience for your guests but also helps you manage your guest list effectively. Consider including a meal choice option for your guests to select, making it easier to plan the catering. However an alternative to a traditional RSVP card is to direct guests to your wedding website where you can include further information about the wedding day and ask guests to RSVP this way.

Order of the Day

Outline the schedule of events for your wedding weekend as a clear schedule helps guests plan their visit and ensures they don't miss any important parts of the day.


Additional Details

Incorporate additional enclosures to provide essential information to your guests. Include an accommodations card with details about nearby hotels and any discounts you've reserved with them.

Hosting a Rehearsal Dinner or Farewell Brunch?

If you're hosting multiple events over the wedding weekend, create an itinerary card outlining the schedule. Plus you will need to have a separate RSVP for this to ensure you have the details of guests attending (and any dietary information).

Your wedding invitations are not merely pieces of paper; they are the first impression of your luxurious celebration and the more you inform your guests, the less questions you will get in the lead up! Remember, when it comes to luxury wedding invitations, details are everything!
