FH and I love the look of pocket folder invites and that’s what we were going to do, but i keep seeing these adorable examples online of layered invites that have a belly band that I also love – or the really cute styled font invites – I just don’t know what to do.
I love the pocket, but I love the more casual font invites too – we’re having a ‘classy casual’ wedding (if that makes any sense at all).
I would love to see examples of your casual pocket fold invites!

One thing to consider with pocket invites…. the added cost of shipping…..
I did not do pocket invites because of the added cost…. (150+ invitations= big expense)…..

@californiabride2013: I did already check that, ours are smaller sized but overweight. They’ll be $1.10 ea to send, BUT CanPost did just announce a rate hike so I guess I should double check my dates – the invites might go out a little early!

I live the second invitation…the light blue one. Where did you find it? I’m also in the GTA and looking at pocket fold invitations but I’m just starting out. Any tips you could offer would be greatly appreciated:). Which ones did you end up going with?

Here are some examples for you. They still might be a bit more formal than you want (but they’re what I have easy access to because they are my inspiration), but they should get the idea that you can change levels of formality and maybe give some ideas about how to.

I love those examples. I’ve been having such a hard time trying to design my invites. I design for other people all time – doing my own is a nightmare!

I think they can be casual, for sure. Just put a more fun & casual invite in the folder! The folder doesn’t make it fancy, what’s inside it what counts! If you like the look, go for it! And, if it’s any help I recently mailed our pocketfolds and they were $.86 each, in the US.
