I originally wanted to do this since I also had online rsvp, but all the information didnt fit on the invite, so I had 1 extra card inside with Reception Information. My actual invite was a gate fold invite, rather than 1 sheet. But if all your information fits on that one sheet that should be ok

I got mine from Vista Print and they are one sheet. In reality, who cares? All people are going to do is read them. Its no biggie.

I wouldn’t mind receiving one piece of paper – the rest gets thrown away or sent back anyway.  I usually only keep the main piece and stick it on my refrigerator.

Frankly, I’d prefer just one sheet. Then things don’t get separated and lost, there’s less to keep track of, and all the info is right there! I think invitations are getting a little out of control these days, haha. We are just going to have one sheet. We might create a second little card with the website address and “X seats have been reserved in your honor”, but I haven’t decided yet. Actually, could you put up a picture of your invitation so I can see how it looks all on one?

@missshayona: Those are pretty! What about the RSVP and location info? Is that the blacked out part?

I made all of our invites…on a sheet of white cardstock backed by a sheet of navy blue paper. we have a seperate little insert that has our registry info on it as well as our reception location. We’ll have 2 cards but I think that’s ok. I love the 1-sheet wedding invites. Too much other stuff and it gets lost or forgotten about.

@missshayona those are beautiful! so pretty ๐Ÿ™‚

I just ordered the 6×9 invites from Vistaprint – they should be here tomorrow! I will also be including an RSVP postcard, but those will be the only two things in the envelope and I feel totally fine with it. I think so many invitations, while beautiful, are way more complicated than they need to be. People are just going to throw them away, anyway.

I’ll be doing it; I will be doing something really similar to our STDs, which I did the same way, only more text and no magnet. ๐Ÿ˜‰ I think it’s a good cost saver, and I am doing them myself, so I don’t want to have to fold and glue a bunch of stuff.

You know what they say; less is more! I’m adding a little flair with envelope liners and a reception card. Honestly, as PP have said, you just throw everything else away. I’d rather spend my money on a nice letterpressed invite than on frills and an expensive-to-mail pocketfold! Mine are working out to be about $2.50/invite, Crane’s letterpress and all! This was my inspiration:

I’ll probably just have the invitation and a reply card. As much as i love paper and sending people an envelope chock full of goodness- in all honesty, most of that will get thrown away soon after. And all the relevant directions, hotel, and registry info can be put on the website.

Ours is just an invitation and a reply card, and my wedding is black tie. My mom has recently stressed about putting inserts in with directions and accomodation info, but that stuff is all on my website, so I don’t think we’ll be doing that.

We did it and it seems like everyone liked it.   Much better for the environment too.  ๐Ÿ™‚
