I made pocketfolds as well.
In addition to the invitation panel, here are the inserts I made:
– “Getting There”: This one opened up like a greeting card. There were written directions on the front and when you opened it, there was a map with key locations.
– “For your convenience”: This card had our website info and listed our hotel blocks and how to book rooms.
– “Celebrate”: reception card
– “Kindly reply”: RSVP card

My goal is only to spend 44cents on the postage, so it’s just the invitation and the RSVP card. The ceremony and reception are in the same place, so no reception card is needed.
We are also posting accommodations/transportation info on our website, and I’m emailing my side of the friends and family with that info in an email so they can take care of it now, before they get the invitations.

We used a pocketfold style for our destination wedding, and included:
1 – Invitation
2 – RSVP card w/reply envelope
3 – Directions card – written directions; also referred to website for map
4 – Details card – this included information about climate and suggested attire (for our beach wedding), weekend events, travel and accommodations, and a reference to the website for complete details

Where did you download/buy the flourish graphics you used? Very pretty!

I had an awesome “pocket style” invitation. When you first open it the Invitation itself is there in all it’s glory. And then stacked on top of one another with each heading sticking out were the Directions to the Ceremony, Reception information and Directions and the RSVP. I felt that it answered all questions while still being completely amazing!
