I’m not doing Vistaprint Invitations but I just met with an Invitations Consultant/Calligrapher who will be making my invitations and she knew quite a bit about the etiquitte behind 1 envelope or 2 envelopes. 

The 2 envelopes are the traditional route–apparently they were used back in the day when people hand carried the mail and the outer envelope would get dirty/dropped on the ground, etc.  But the inner envelope stayed clean.  Hence the need for two envelopes.

These days there’s no need to have that outer envelope.  And more and more people are just going with one envelope and it’s perfectly fine to put all the guests names and even ‘and guest’ on the one envelope. 

That’s what she said, and she knows about this stuff since it’s her job.  Anyways, hope this helps!  I’m just doing one envelope and writing on the names on the outside.  It’s much cheaper to go this route too!

Oh also about the packaging, you could do a belly band, but i’ve usually just seen the invite with the other inserts just placed inside.   Some people do pocket folds but that’s a lot of work.  I think it’s fine/normal to just put them nicely (in order) all into the envelope without worrying about adding something extra (i.e. belly bands)
