Hello weddingbee’s! I am new to the site and so excited I found it! First off, let me introduce myself as I may be commenting every so often. My name is Sarah and my wedding date is set for Oct. 12, 2013 (I am so excited and totally wish it was this year, but we have to save money!)
The theme for the wedding will be vintage. It was originally going to be fall since I love that season so much, but the more I started pinning ideas on Pinterest, the more I realized it had taken a different path.
I’m just starting to get some ideas for invitations since the majority of the wedding will be DIY. I really like incorporating lace and have bought samples of pocket fold cards and was thinking of wrapping the lace around, but the more I think about it, how will people display the invites on their fridge (as many people do!) Are pocket folds too bulky and would using just a simple piece of paper fitted into the envelope and then the rsvp cards and whatnot being loose? How many of you have sent out pocketfold cards? This may be a dumb question, and if it is..I apologize. haha. Ok thanks!

I am DIYing pocket fold invites. I made my own pocketfolds, envelopes, everything! I would say that the inserts are fitted tightly into the invitations, and I am not worried about them falling out. With the RSVP, envelope and map, it is tight in the pocketfold.
As for fridge display, most magnets won’t hold up quality cardstock, as it is. It is usually fairly thick. I think if people want to display them on their fridge, they will find a way (clip magnets, tape, etc). You could even send out STD magnets with clips on them for the invitation, once they are sent out!
I THINK that answers some of your question. I was a bit confused.
Welcome to the hive 🙂

What if you had a pocketfold envelope but the inner card with the details on it was removeable so it could be posted on the fridge? Alternately you could send a detailed save the date on a cute postcard.
I don’t that everyone puts things on their fridges, I always do, but some people I know go for a more sleek look and would put the invite in their office or something.

I like the idea of having the main invitation be removable! Thanks for the comments and help.

I did my pocket fold with http://www.mahinadesigns.com. It cost a few cents more for the stamps but they looked great!!!!

What if you placed the actual invited onto the body of the pocketfold, and then secured it down with lace? Once people open the pocketfold, everything could be nicely held together, but then once they open the lace, they could put the invite itself on the fridge?
Like this, but on this inside?

yes, I love the lace (think I’m going to incorporate bits and pieces of it throughout the wedding) I love your idea! Thanks
