We put our online RSVP info on the back, but generally the back is blank.

The invites I’m looking into either have a blank or printed back [printed with the decorations on the front, which costs extra].

Nothing. Separate insert for website, accomodation, rsvp info.

We’re either going to be doing a plain color back that compliments, or a pattern, or nothing, or our wedding website printed on the bottom right corner. Obviously we haven’t decided yet. Cheree Berry paper (my paper crush) frequently embosses the wedding date or something small but sweet on the back (xoxo, a heart, or something to tie in with the invite design). But I think nothing on the back is the most common.

@NYbeee1234:  I guess it all depends on what you want. I have gotten some where the back is just blank and I have also gotten a few that have the ceremony information on the front and the reception information/wedding website on the back. I haven’t decided on mine yet, but I am thinking we are just going to leave the back blank.

We didn’t want to do a bunch of inserts, so we did info on our wedding website on the back and also a map of the venue location, showing parking and hotels.

We just left ours blank, but we had the option of paying extra to do a pattern or colour on the back. We figured having a white back would be fine since people wouldn’t be expecting anything anyways (:

@NYbeee1234:  We had the option of also writing something, so I wrote “Goin’ to the barn and we’re gonna get married!”  ya know, instead of the chaple! – FI had no idea until they came in. MWAHAHAHAA!

I chose engraved invitations, and, because the stock was a heavy, cotton card, I requested “heavy bruising” so that my guests could see that the invitations, reception cards, response cards, and reply envelopes all had been engraved. My outer envelopes were blind embossed, so the indentations from that also were visible. (My accommodations cards featured the same fonts but were offset printed and not engraved, so there was nothing visible on the back of them.)
