I am sure someone has discussed this before… but if you have a pocketfold, does that mean no "inner envelope"? And, thus, where does one write exactly who is invited? (Because Ms Manners et al say to write Mr. and Mrs X on the outer, and Sue and Bob X on the inside along with their kids names)…

I didn’t have an "inner envelope" with my pocketfold. That would make the invitation too thick. I wrote everyone’s names on the outer envelope.

I didn’t have an inner envelope either. I just closed the pocketfold with a square "seal" that was personalized with people’s names. If it was a couple and kids, we just wrote "the X family," though obviously if you’ve got guests who might take that as carte blanche to invite whomever, you’d have to go with something different.

I don’t have an inner envelope, but as I’m not inviting children to the wedding it works out. I’m going a bit off etiquette and putting "& guest" on the outside of the envelope, the mailing one….
I did find this option for you though:
They put the names on the outside of the pocket fold like this:

i would also eliminate the dilemma by putting the names on the rsvp card itself. it helps out actually because some people just have illegible writing if they were to write it on their own. and then you actually get random ones where they flat forget to write their name.
but if you feel like you need to put their names on the outside, i really like sweeney2be’s idea there.
