How To Stuff Wedding Invitations

Nov 05, 2013 | Posted by:  abi s

These instructions will benefit anyone who is hosting a traditional wedding. The very first thing a person should see when opening the invitation envelope is who is hosting the event. To this end it is important to know how to stuff the envelope properly. It helps to set up an assembly line of the various pieces so that you know you have enough of each. Every envelope should have the same number of inserts. Skip steps 2 and 3 if your invitations were done professionally.

  1. The first thing you need to know is that you will need help. But that is what bridesmaids are for.
  2. Start by addressing all of the envelopes first if you are doing it by hand. This prevents the inserts from being marked. Your address should also be on the inner and response envelopes. Do not forget to include postage on the RSVP card.
  3. Only one person should be addressing the envelopes and inserts so that they look uniformed. 
  4. Most often the invitations are sent to you flat, the first thing you need to do is to fold the invitation. A tissue should go inside the folded invitation. The reception card can be inside the invitation or the next thing the reader will see.
  5. The response envelope should have the RSVP card neatly tucked just under the flap of the envelope. The writing should be facing outward so it is easily read. Place this on top of the invitation on top of the response card and envelope.
  6. Place the map or other instructional material on top of this and stuff all of it into the inner envelope with the writing facing the back of the envelope. You want the invitee to see their names right away.
  7. After double checking the envelope for insert accuracy seal the envelopes and prepare to mail them.
The traditional wedding invitation uses a design that includes an elegant script. Be careful when choosing the font because some look beautiful but are harder to read and if no one can read it, well they just may not show up. The colors that work best are either black or gold and if you choose the heavier papers they print better. When people open an invitation that is on hefty paper it actually triggers in their mind that this must be something of great importance.
