There’s no way I would have tried to DIY them, but I like pocket invites.  I was thinking that I usually bring the invite with me to the wedding to be able to find my way, and it’s way easier than having an envelope and a bunch of stuff that just falls out.

I some crappy quality pictures of mine. I had the invitations and insert cards designed and printed by a local company. I ordered the pocketfolds and envelopes from cardsandpockets.com and I assembled everything myself (including gluing on the rhinestones). All the paper (invitations, pocketfolds, envelopes) are metallic but it doesn’t really show up in the pictures.

Ours were fully DIY and I loved them. Pockets just kept everything together nicely. It did become a small headache with figuring out sizing but in the end it was beautiful

I DIYed pocket invites but we didn’t take pictures of them before we sent them out :/ but we’ve gotten a ton of compliments from guests who say they love that all our inserts have a nice pocket to fit into. Looks elegant and keeps things organized!

I got all my invite papers – envelopes, pocketfolds, backing paper, cardstock for postcard RSVPs, and the paper we actually printed the invitations and insert info on – at paperandmore.com.

@excitedtobeMRSF:  thank you! I actually had the envelopes printed by a local shop. But if you have access to a laser jet printer you should be good.
