We are making ours also and there are so many different sizes you can do but it seems like 5×7 is one of the most popluar. Your invite looks so beautiful by the way! Love the lace 🙂

If you’re not sure, I would take the mock-up to Jo-Anns or OfficeMax to check out envelopes. Then take the full mock-up to the post office to weigh.

The smartest thing I ever heard about DIY invites was to find the envelope size you like and then work backward with the size of the invites. That way you don’t have a bunch of invites that don’t fit into any standard envelopes.  So good for you for thinking about envelope size now rather than later!

I think A7 envelopes are the most common for the size of most invites, but I am not sure exactly what size your invites would need to be to fit into A7s.  5 x 7?  I think you are supposed to leave an eighth inch extra space on each side to fit in the envelope comfortably.

P.S. Love your mockup!

Yes the A7 envelopes will be perfect for the 5×7. That’s what we have. And it looks like maybe the cream paper should be about 1/2 inch smaller…so maybe like 4.5×6.5??
