Ours were pretty minimal. We had a double sided invitation, and then a small card directing them to our website for more information and to rsvp. Then we tied it up with a ribbon and will be having one envelope.

A couple pics:

I will take pics as soon as the second page is finished, but we are just having an A7 card for the invitation, an A6 card with more info, and it all is going inside an A7 envelope.  

I’m going to tie them with baker’s twine, topped off with a tag to write the names of the specifically-invited guests (to avoid extra +1s).

Here’s basically what the A6 card says:


Reception to follow at LOCATION, TIME

We’re getting married at a baseball field. Before a game. Our invites are tickets. And the stub is the “RSVP” where it says, “We have reserved ___ in your honor, please RSVP at (our website)”

@indiblue:  Like you, my Fi and I didn’t want to do traditional invitations.  We’re having people respond online and by phone (for the few who can’t do internet).

I had a custom invite made by something_blue on etsy (I highly recommend her, by the way) and she sent us the PDF.  We’ll get them printed somewhere and buy envelopes to send them out. 

I really love them.  I attached a copy below for an example 🙂

We did vistaprint postcards for our invitations as well as the rsvp cards. We also had our website listed on the back of the invite and a map to the venue.

We also had envelopes made to match the invites, and it was all done for less than $30.
