I am at the point that I am getting ready to mail these little suckers out :p
Imade my own invites (post here http://diy.weddingbee.com/topic/my-pocketfold-wedding-invitations)
Now b/c I’m not up with all the ettiquett stuff especially when I started this project out I did not order “inner envlopes” I guess what I have is considered the Outer envelope and the response enevelope.
Do I need to have Inner Envelopes? How about Tissue?
Let me know yoru thoughts please 🙂

I don’t think either of those things are required.
There’s actually a history behind the inner envelope… the lady I bought my invites from told me – back when mail carriers rode horse back the outer envelope was kept on while traveling and when he got to the address he would discard the outer (usually dirty) envelope and present the guest with the inner clean envelope. Anyhow – just a fun fact.
It’ all up to you, but I think it’s a little more formal to add both of those.

Nah not necessary (and I’m pretty big on etiquette). Just make sure you address the outer envelope to who is actually invited and on your RSVP make sure they know how many are invited. (i.e you adders it to Mr. & Mrs. John Smith, if you are also inviting their kids make sure they know that on the response card whether it’s by filling in their names, saying you have reserved ___ seats for them, etc.) Good luck!

we didn’t use that stuff. i think it’s nice if you’re trying to be formal, but ours were very casual, and i wanted to have them as light as possible so we wouldn’t have to spend more on postage.
