Alright, I am *thisclose* to ordering invites. I don’t think we’re doing pocket invites (mo’ paper, mo’ problems?)
So, my questions….
-How many inserts do I need?
Or can the reception and website info all be on the same page? Do I HAVE to put in an accomidations insert or can I just direct people to the website? And I do not mention my registry anywhere in the invite suite, correct?
(The reception is immediately after the ceremony, guests will walk the 2 min walk to the hotel to catch the shuttles immediately following the ceremony. Some guests will drive separately.)
Once I’ve gotten my number of paper goods figured, how do I arrange this all in an envelope? do the inserts go behind the invite so people see it first? Do I stack the paper inserts on top of the invite so people don’t miss any inserts?
Stupid question, do I leave the RSVP card out of the envelope and just nestle it in the fold of the envelope?
These are our invites (haven’t decided on a black or white background) The link is below too.
Can I see some invitation suites pretty please? Any other invitation insights are GREATLY appreciated!!!!

All you really need is a reception insert if it’s in a different location, and an reply insert. We had an accommodations card with our website on the bottom, and an reply card with our website on the bottom.
No registry info whatsoever 😉
For the most part, you’ll assemble it in size order, with each card placed face-up. Start with the invitation. Place the reception card face-up on top of the invitation. Place the remaining enclosure cards face-up on top of the reception card. Place the reply envelope face-down on top of the enclosure cards. Then, insert the reply card under the reply envelope flap, face-up so that the printed side is visible. Insert the fully assembled invitation suite into the envelope (left edge first) When the envelope flap is opened, you should see the printed side of the invitation. 🙂

Our invitations are simple – they have the date, time and location and direct people to our website to rsvp and for more information. On the website we have information about the hotel, transportation and our registry information.
I personally think the less stuff you send the better.

arquelle : Ours too!! My partner wasn’t thrilled about sending out paper invites but I talked him into something simple and the more concise the better.

The less inserts the better, but it’s really up to you and the design/space on each insert.
We only had one insert (in addition to our actual invitation) and it said “to RSVP email [email protected] or at our website at http://www.xyz.com. For all other information about our wedding, please visit our website.”
Its still early but so far no one has had any issues with the information provided.
