I made up my invites and menu with my sister today and need advice and suggestions! Thanks!
PS. The invitation will be a pocketfold that is 5.5″ square and opens like a book. The front page will be the “cover”, the invitation will be on the right and the inserts will be on the left, in the pocketfold.
PPS… Uploaded in a REALLY weird order. Sorry! I’ll write where everything goes below each picture.
– Invitation for inside. Question… we are doing a cocktail hour then reception. Does this wording at the end make sense?
RSVP for two person invitation (the one person one is identical, minus one line). Do I need to add anything else here? Oh, and the swirly do that has a dot in it, will actually be rhinestone.
Front cover. The pink and brown line is ribbon and the circle is a ribbon slide. It will be mounted on pink paper and then on the brown pocketfold, with ivory as the background colour of the invite.
A map. The venue has no telephone number for contacting. Is that an issue? Should I provide a number of one of the families or bridal party? Rhinestone in this swirly do too.
Our menu. Again, the line will be a ribbon. And a rhinestone in the swirly do.

Looks really great. I’ve never seen an RSVP with two lines but I really like the idea. Takes a lot of the guesswork out.

@LuckyJuls: My sister (who has NEVER designed an invite) thought of that idea! She said “But… how will they know they should write both names” and I thought what the heck, lets try it out 🙂

They’re great! You can also change the wording to be : Cocktails and reception to immediately follow. I don’t know if the ‘adult’ part is necessary if you have 2 lines for guests, but then you know your guests better and if they would be likely to bring their kids.
I’m not sure if you care but I can still read your venue location where you tried to erase it! (But then I live in the area and know most of the venues around here from doing my own research)

- Wedding: March 2012 - Pelican Grand Beach Resort
The only thing I worry about with the two lines is that you might be accidentally encouraging people to bring another person if their named-on-envelope date backs out. I have a, ex-friend who regularly goes with her grandmother to weddings in place of her grandfather–which is SO not okay without permission from hosts, but…–and to people like her and her grandmother, this might look like you are handing out two spots in general to the invited guests instead of 2 spots to 2 specific people.

@Ms. Martian: Thanks for the suggestion! I like that much better. I didn’t care so much about the venue location– just erased it cause I was erasing the rest. I think I’ve actually posted it on here before… somewhere haha!
@mrsSonthebeach: I have two styles of RSVPS (but the other one didn’t upload). The first style says that there are two seats reserved and provides two lines. The second says that there is one seat reserved and provides one line. It is going to be a very small wedding (50 people or less), so I will address the envelopes accordingly. No one will have a +1 or “and guest” on their invite, and therefore it should be fairly clear who is invited.
