The four major components that you need to make your special day are: One - your Save the Dates; Two - your invitations; Three – your RSVP; and Four – your Thank You cards. There are different types of invitation styles when ordering your invitations. There is everything from flat invitations to pocket style invitations to multiple layer invitations. The choice is yours and its endless possibilities. Here is an example of a flat invitation with the handy pocket located on the rear. Still feel free to place your inserts for your guests along with your RSVP and envelope so they can return to ensure that they will in attendance for your special day. Here is the pocket fold, with the pocket fold it is multi layers which really gives a great accent for your wedding colors. Also please notice the font; the printing is letter press. Letter press can get little expensive, however, it shows your guest that you truly care about your special day. Below are inserts, inserts can go from anything from transportation to accommodation, so maybe things that they can do on your special weekend.
