For those of you who are not using an inner envelope, how are you assembling your invitations? Did you just stick everything inside the envelope, or did you use ribbon to tie it all together? I’m looking for suggestions on what to do.

I used twine, and tied it like a present, but tucked the RSVP and directions cards behind the invite, instead of on top.

Yeah, I’m just going to tie mine to the RSVP card/envelope with a pretty ribbon. Ta-da!

I’m doing pocketfolds but I won’t be using an inner envelope…I think using twine would be great! Or a nice ribbon.

I just showed my in a different post. I used a ribbon with a glue dot and then put this little paper flower with a sticker rhinestone to hold everything together. It didn’t add extra postage either.

@turtle62212: That’s very cute! Thanks for sharing.
Is it time consuming to tie ribbon around all the invites?

@Bichon Frise – It wasn’t too bad. I did all my invitations, about 50, in one night all by myself. Using the glue dots makes it easy to attach the ribbon, but you’ll need something to cover where the ribbon closes. That’s why I used those little flowers. If you want more specific details, I’m happy to share.

I’m using some sort of pocket fold or making one but otherwise you can just tie them all together.

I used baker’s twine. For some invitations, I also added a tag. For instance:
- In households with children, etiquette states that the envelope should be addressed to the parents, and the inside envelope list the names of parents and children. So I used the tag to do list everyone’s names so it was clear kids are a-okay at our wedding.
- For single friends, we wanted to clarify that the invitation was only for them, so the tag had their name written again so it was clear there wasn’t a +1.

Many of the Bee bloggers have used twine or ribbon. If you search the blog section, you’ll see tons of images. 🙂

We used a ribbon and a monogram.

I used a belly band – Super cute! 🙂

I’m not using anything–it’s just the invite and the RSVP so I am self addressing and stamping the RSVP and putting it behind the invite. Simple and waste free!

if you have anything from a home printer, make sure the printed side is facing out, not face down on top of the invitations (or it may smudge when it rubs against them).

@mink: how to search for images for invitations in blogs?
