I am VERY happy with our pocketfolds. I have 4 inserts so they are really helpful. Plus I put a band around the outside with the guests’ names, which I thought was a nice touch.

However, if you already have your invites designed at 5×7, I’m not sure if they will fit. You’d have to double check. I ordered from Cards and Pockets website and was very happy with it.

You could also package them by doing a “belly band” around the pieces without a pocketfold, then into the envelope.

@MrsB22:  

I’m using a website for pocket folds called cardsandpockest.com, but they alwo have other envelopes as well, like petalfold envelops, gatefold envelops, trifold envelopes, you can also buy belly bands if just want to add a little color, they even make monograms, I’ve ordered samples from a few different companies online and they were by far the nicest quality of pocketfold. I’m using the metallic paper in the color punch, I think the metallic add a little bit of elegance.

1) You do not need pocketfolds.  They are a “nice thing” to have.  Belly bands are also one of those unnecessary-but-nice things.  If you go with either one of these you can have these in the pink color you are using.

2) It is 100% OK to slip everything inside an inner envelope and call it good.

3) Have the calligrapher address the envelopes in black or navy.  If the lettering on your invites is navy I would stick with that.

4) Having a lot of white is OK.  We can really only process a few things at once (see the awesome sticky on wedding invitations!).  If you have to have colored envelopes I’d use them for the inner ones.

5) Something else that might satisfy your need for some extra color are envelope liners.  They’re not hard to DIY (you can get paper, adhesive and the templates from Paper Source) and do make a nice visual impact.

I had pocketfolds and loved them.  We had three enclosure cards, each a different height, so they laid over each other and you could see all three titles.  I got them on Etsy.  They weren’t exactly cheap, but I could order a small number rather than the 50 minium that I’ve seen elsewhere.  I paid $6 each for them.  If I had needed more than 20 then I probably would have ordered the supplies and made them myself.  I estimate that I could have made them for about $3 each.
