At first our invitations were just going to be a piece of 80# cardstock (Cards and Pocket’s Cream Puff, if it helps) – plus all our inserts, and no panel/pocketfold/etc (and we’re doing the inner envelop dealio).
Now I’m second guessing myself – should we mount the invitation on a panel? I’m just worried they’ll be too flimsy by themselves, but I’m not too crazy about the look of a panel mount (mostly because I can’t figure out what color to use). Thoughts?

Mine was just one card. Simple. Got the point across.

I definitely did not do expensive invitations…mine were one layer. I see these gorgeous invitations and have brief regrets; however, I didn’t allocate a large portion of the budget for invitations and ultimately I’m happy with my decision!

Mine are mounted on the eggplant backing and then mounted to the silver pocketfold from Cards & Pockets. I love the way it looks, the extra pop of color really helps. I wish I had a photo to send you but I’ve only made one as a trial with the samples – haven’t touched the materials for the real ones since I got them.

My invites were cardstock with a backing panel, but so were each of my inserts! I did a lot of overall layers to my invites, but I made them myself so they were very afordable.

@StL.Ashley: my invites were mounted onto the pocketfold along with a few additional embellishments. diy, btw.
i think you should do whatever you like and what fits your budget.

Mine were linen paper mounted on cardstock, then mounted into the pocketfold.

i had a 5×7 flat card custom cut, and a colored backer card custom cut as well, and all assembled onto a trifold pocketfold. it was double wrapped with a sheer ribbon with a small knot in the back. while it was all professionally cut and assembled, i pretty much designed the overall look myself…with the exception of the invitation design itself, as it was from weddingpaperdivas.
