5 x 7 (A7) is pretty standard. How will you fit a 5 x 7 card into a 5.25 x 5.25 envelope?

The standards for RSVP cards are either A6 (4 1/2″ x 6 1/4″) or A2 (4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″)

Same question, how are you going to make something bigger than 5.25 fit into the envelope?  I would have whatever envelope you like dictate the size of the paper.  Envelope sizes are standard, paper you can always cut to the shape you like

I would go with an A1 envelope for the RSVP card

Envelope Dimensions: 3.625″ x 5.125″ (3 5/8 in x 5 1/8 in)
Suggested enclosure dimension: 3.475″ x 4.875″ <—- should be the size of the RSVP

Then you can make your other insert a step up… maybe 3.725 x 5.125

@baletrina:  We made the same mistake, don’t feel bad! We made our sample invite and couldn’t find an envelope to fit so we had to start over again and resize it! 

We ordered everything from paperandmore.com and had a great experience if you’re looking for where to order anything from ๐Ÿ™‚

@baletrina:  I had to rework the sizing of our invites many times over to get what I wanted… So don’t beat yourself up about it at all!

For ours I used anchorpaper for all of my paper (not just invites but programs & guestbook too) I was able to get everything I needed already cut to size, they have the best prices I’ve found out of anywhere, and they have some of the best customer service I’ve ever found in a company. If you don’t find what you’re looking for on their site just email them and they can help find you something (I believe they have an actual store as well)

Have fun and don’t stress too much…. in the end you’ll think back about how the invites were just the opener to the amazing “Big Day”! ๐Ÿ˜‰
