I got an invite a few months ago with just two cards in one envelope.  I think it just comes down to how you want it to look.

I did mine with the invite and RSVP card and an enclosure card in an envelope without any pocket enclosure or band around them.  I got plenty of compliments on them.  If you’re stressed, I’m sure people will think they are lovely regardless.

 

If you feel like you must put them together with something, paper belly bands are really pretty simple.  I helped my friend assemble her invites and we did paper belly bands that we stamped with a design that coordinated with the invites (which we them embossed with embossing powder, but you don’t need to be that fancy).

You dont have to use anything. It’s really about the look you are going for. Were doing a simple modern invite. Post a photo of your invites.

@keshields19 They look nice.  Most of your guest wont be seeing another guests anyway so they wont realize that they aren’t all uniform.

@keshields19: They look beautiful!  Stick with the ribbon and seals.

What kind of sealing wax do you have? Some more modern waxes (i believe Paper-Source sells them) are flexible and you want that because a lot of sealing wax turn brittle. When the invite goes through the mail, the jostling can (and does) shatter the seal–I’ve taken out invites with bits of wax in the envelope. So make sure that your wax is suitable for mail. You do not have to do a band and an inner envelope (personally, I think an inner envelope is a waste of paper).

And–I don’t want to sound TOO harsh, but hopefully it’ll cure you of your OCDness–people will spill coffee on these things. They will end up crumpled on the floor of someone’s car. They may get shredded for someone’s kids’ guinea pigs to pee on. Don’t get me wrong–I am a major paper head, but just keep that in mind when you feel yourself getting too crazy!
