I’m using straight flap – but that’s more of a function of what’s available (I’m doing 4X9 and there is limited options in envelopes)  

I think it matters more what the texture is like more than the shape of the envelope.  As long as its similar in quality to the invitation – you’ll be OK.  I also don’t think it has to "sparkle" as long as it "pops",  I’m not going on with any sparkle – just an ornate stamp at the top and bottom of the invitation.

If you have a "laidback" wedding – sparkles aren’t necessarily but maybe a sand dollar stamp or printing? 

Good luck

I actually think Euro flaps are more formal looking.  But in the grand scheme of things, it’s about what you like, and what you can get your hands on without stressing yourself out! 

In terms of the paper, you might be better off just waiting a few days for the Stardream Paper to come in, since it sounds like spray glitter method is a lot of work.  Here are some other places where you can get Stardream:

All the places above are really good and fast with their service, (I’ve ordered from all of them before). If you order early in the week you’ll get it by the end of the week.

In terms of envelope flaps, as a designer, I’m definitely more towards the baronial (pointed flap) style. But to be honest, i’s a personal preference.

I ordered from paperandmore – a whole box of samples.  I am really happy with their products and their service (they upgraded me to 2-day delivery for free).  I am actually ordering my invitations from another website, but my Fiance wants some details (a matching outer envelope, vellum inserts) that seemed overly expensive to me from the other website.  It is great that paperandmore will let you order single sheet samples to see if the color and weight is what you want – it is really hard to tell over the internet.

Maybe instead of getting the Stardream (which I think would be very pretty!) you can also consider textured cardstock.
