Everyday Etiquette – Placement of Tissues


We are sending wedding announcements after our destination wedding. We are also adding a card with our At Home Address. When we stuff the envelope should we place the tissue on top of everything or between the announcement and the At Home card?

The Everyday Etiquette Answer:

First of all, I send my congratulations on your marriage.

Let me give you a little history of the tissue. Long ago the tissue was placed on top of the wedding invitation to keep traditional engraving from smearing. Today, the tissues are used only for an effect. They serve no real purpose with today’s printing techniques. If you choose to use the tissue, it is placed directly on top of the announcement, with the At Home card placed on top of the tissue.

I hope this helps you out. Thank you for asking Everyday Etiquette.

Ms. Carey
