With all the cards, tissue and envelopes that come with wedding invitations, it can be challenging to assemble them the correct way. Once you determine the correct order of these items, assembly of your invitations will go much faster. Brides once used tissue paper to protect the printing, but it is no longer necessary because most invitations are laser printed. However, brides have embraced this tradition, using tissue paper in formal invitations or in invitations meant to look more expensive.
Things You'll Need
- Wedding invitations
- Invitation envelopes
Place the invitation with the printing facing up on the table.
Put the tissue on top of the invitation.
Put reception card, if there is one, on top of the tissue, with the printed side facing up.
Tuck the response card underneath the flap of the response envelope, and place it on top of the reception card, with the printed side facing up. If there is no reception card, place it on top of the tissue.
Place a map of the wedding and reception site on top of the response card and envelope if you are including them in your invitation.
Put the stack of cards into the inner envelope with the folded edge going in first and the printed sides facing the back of the envelope.
Put the inner envelope, the one with the invitation and response cards, inside the outer envelope. The front of the inner envelope should face the back of the outer envelope so that when you open the outer envelope, you see the guest's name.
