I’m probably going to sound like a complete idiot because I have no idea how to assemble my wedding invitations.
This is what I’m working with:
I got the invitations today through Minted and they gave me vellum flysheets with a card that says what do with them and it’s completely thrown me off. I have no idea where to insert these sheets? Do I put the RSVP card into the flap of the RSVP Envelope and put the sheet inbetween the envelope and invitation?
My brain is spinning with the number of possibilities. Can someone please help me!!!

mwd123 : your invitation gets piled largest to smallest. So invite on the bottom, then flysheet, then RSVP card on top, tucked under the flap of the RSVP envelope. This all goes into the main envelope, with the top of the pile (RSVP card tucked under envelope) facing out. So when your guest opens the main envelope, everything is facing them.

mwd123 : It can be confusing. This is from brides.com
•For the most part, wedding invitations are assembled in size order, with each card placed face-up. Start with the invitation.
•If a sheet of tissue paper came on top of each invitation, it’s your choice whether to leave it in or not. Traditionally, it was used to keep the ink from smudging (while most inks used these days won’t smudge, the tradition has continued). If you decide to send it, place the tissue on top of the invitation.
•Place the reception card face-up on top of the invitation.
•Place the remaining enclosure cards—i.e., map card or hotel accommodations card—face-up on top of the reception card.
•Place the reply envelope face-down on top of the enclosure cards. Then, insert the reply card under the reply envelope flap, face-up so that the printed side is visible.
Just ignore the instructions for any card you don’t have e.g reception card
