So I went last night and purchased the neccesary items to make my wedding invitation mock ups.
I made one I really liked, but I can’t find ANY examples of this particular style online. I don’t know it it’s stupid, tacky, etc. or if I’m not looking at the right places.
You know how a birthday card usually is folded in half vertically? The invite we like is folded in half horizontally, with the main invite showing on the front, and pockets on the inside flap including RSVP, map, directions, etc.
Anyone seen wedding invites of this nature?

Basically, if you look at any of these pocketfolds, you could envision placing the invite on the outer flap instead of as you open it. If you’re making your own, just think of using some of these pocketfold designs, but without making the little flap that closes them. Hopefully this makes sense 🙂

Is the invitation mock-up you’re creating something similar to this one? http://www.invitationconsultants.com/invitation.aspx?p_invitationitem=FNN51PGHYD
You can cut the inserts on the pockets in different heights so all the inserts and their headings/titles can be seen.

nicholby: Can you take a picture of the one you made and then show us? That might help us to see what you’re referring to, unless it’s similar to one of the ones mentioned here by alli or cassie. I’m having a tough time imagining what you’re describing

I made invitations like you’re describing for my counsin’s wedding last summer. They turned out beautifully. Unfortunately I don’t have any pics of them. However, if you love what you came up with, go with it! People will love that your invitations are creative and unique.

Similar to those, but they don’t fold up into an envelope, they just fold in half and then I have envelopes for them.
See the layered inserts area and the actual invite area? Mine are the same size, folded in half on top of each other with invite out front, inserts inside.
Imagine a birthday card. On front is the invite itself, open it and see the inserts. Now just imagine instead of a vertical B-day card it’s a horizontal one.
But yes, Cassie. You were the closest. But thankyou Alli! Those are really cute as well.
I’m surfing around.. I’m determined to find something cute!

I’m at work, but I’m going to whip out MSPaint and draw up something so you girls can get a better idea. I am really horrible at explaining things!

I haven’t seen anything like that, but I think I know what you mean. Ours is a more traditional pocketfold, so when you open it (and it opens like a book) you see the invitation on the left page, and the pocket with the inserts on the right page. Yours has the invitation on the cover, and pockets on the inside. Are there pockets on both left and right on the inside?
The Green Kangaroo has a style they call a clutch, which has the invitation on the front, and the pocket with the inserts on the back (doesn’t actually open). There is basically every style of pocketfold you might want, and I’m sure that your style is just fine, as long as you like it.
