I am actually considering the same thing, trying to eliminate the extra paper for the inner envelope.  I was thinking of using a label (where I’ll write the names) to attach the bellyband around the invitation and enclosures.  I haven’t tried putting it together yet, but I was thinking of putting the invitation on the top, so that’s the first thing people will see when they open it up. 

I’m interested to see if anyone else has done this and how it works out, too.

If you have a multi-part invitation, you are supposed to stuff the envelope with the various smaller pieces (response card, reception card, etc) in front of the invitation.  All the pieces face the back of the envelope (the side that seals).  So to include your various invitation pieces within a belly band, I would think that you would order them in the same manner.  Crane & Co has a nice section on "Order of Enclosures" on their website:
