The big day is fast approaching and it's time to get out the invitations! All the etiquette concerning the invitations can make this a daunting task, but it doesn't have to be that way. This article will show you the proper way to assemble your invitations.
Sort out all your various enclosures into piles facing. This will make it easier as you just have to grab one from each pile to stick in the envelope.
Your actual invitation will be the first to go into the envelope. You want to put it in so that the wording is facing out.
The reception card will go in next. This is optional as some people just add that to the wedding invitation.
The response envelope and response card will be next. You will want to fold the flap of the response envelope over the card and face the card so that when you open the invitation the wording is facing out.
Last but not least, put in your direction card or small map. This is especially nice to include if your wedding is in a small town or you have family and friends coming to the wedding who are not familiar with the area
If you want to include tissue in your envelope, it would be placed over the wording of the invitation.
If you have handwritten the envelopes, make sure that the handwriting on the actual invitation envelope and the handwriting on the response envelope match.
