In this article, we provide multiple examples of wedding advice card templates that you may use for your own wedding. Not only that, these card examples are available in various design themes that will match your own wedding motif.

Why use wedding advice cards?

Before anything else, let us first provide you with practical reasons why you should add wedding advice cards to your wedding checklist. Hopefully, these reasons will help convince you to make your wedding reception party a more memorable one.

  • To get useful pieces of advice from your guests. As is obvious from its name alone, wedding advice cards are printed cards used for asking wedding guests for tips, pieces of advice, and even warnings for the newlywed couple. Of course, you may always ask for advice from your wedding sponsors or family members at any time before or after the wedding. But human memories can be faulty and with the added stress of wedding planning, you may forget about what was said. Instead, using advice cards lets their sage thoughts about marriage be put into print and forever be memorialized. You can refer back to these wedding cards even after your wedding day.
  • To provide guests with another form of entertainment during the reception. Yes, we all know that the wedding reception should be all about the couple. But that does not mean the newlywed should hog all the attention. Enough care should still be put into making your wedding guests comfortable and entertained enough. Giving away wedding advice cards for them to write on during lulls in the wedding program is another mode of entertainment for less active guests like the elderly or those who are in the same age group as the couple. Besides, some wedding advice cards are funny enough that they could count as a source of comedic entertainment for the guests and for the couple who will get to read them later on.
  • To have a physical memorabilia of the event. As mentioned earlier, wedding advice cards may be bound together just like a book. This then becomes a good memorabilia for couples who can use the advice for their married life together. The compilation of wedding advice cards may even be designed to match your wedding invitation template designs. This way, you will be reminded of your wedding day and how all your wedding decorations and stationery looked.
  • To have something to read during the long honeymoon plane ride. On a lighter note, couples may take all the wedding advice cards with them during their honeymoon trip. We are not talking about reading those advice notes during the honeymoon night itself. But you may use them as reading material during the long plane ride. Couples who are planning honeymoon trips to faraway places may like this idea.
  • To show your creative side. Artistic couples who want to personalize all their wedding stationery may also opt for using creatively designed advice cards. In a world of mass-produced wedding card samples, couples who choose to create handmade card designs for their wedding will feel a deeper sense of involvement in planning their wedding as it provides an imaginative and highly original outlet for their talents. Wedding guests will also appreciate a wedding more if they see personalized and handcrafted decorative and practical items used during the ceremony and reception. If you are planning to use handcrafted designs for your wedding, make sure to plan ahead and learn how to create handmade cards efficiently before committing to such a task.
