I will be designing and printing my wedding invites. I found a great template from downloadandprint.com and I was able to customatize colors and wording in photoshop.
I was leaning towards a pocketfold invite, but now I really like just a flat invitation with the enclosures plus a lace bellyband with our monogram.
Here are my questions:
- If the ceremony and reception is at the same venue, do I need a sepearate reception card or just a response card?
- Where can include hotel info? Should this be a seperate enclosure? Or should I just note the wedding website someplace on the invitation?
- How do I bundle the invite if I have more than one enclosure and not using a pocketfold?
Also, please post your DIY invites!

Hey, I made my own invites and it sounds like you want to do something somewhat similar.
I made mine double-sided… no enclosures!
I wanted to have an invite where no one could say they lost any of the accompanying information. So I glued them to each other LOL
I was worried about including the reception info too, then just decided that my guests are all adults and they’ll need to learn how and invitation works eventually anyway. I provided the full, GPS-approved (and tested lol) address though.
BTW – make sure your band doesn’t stick out to much in your envelope, otherwise your postage might go up. I skipped mine entirely (knotted raffia) because it would have made the price go from 46c to 66c each! Everyone seems to have found their RSVP just fine. 🙂
I think there is paper lace that might work well for what you want to do. OR you can pick up one of those Martha Sterwart lace edge punches and cut your own!
