      Sarah those look amazing! I just bought the pocketfolders and the envelopes from cardsandpockets and I plan on using cardstock from my local scrapbooking store. I thought it would save some $, we'll see. Anyways, I love the band and the initial idea you used for the outside of the invite - how did you do that and how is it held together? What did you use for the S? Oh so many questions...

        Christa and I both used Perfetto, which is 6x6 square when folded.

        I definitely found paper cheaper than on their website, but it is convenient to order it all at the same time. I used a font called Goudy Initialen (you can download at dafont.com http://www.dafont.co...initialen.font). It's just a capital S, printed on platinum vellum, then layered on champagne and crimson cardstock, held together with miniature brads. Make sure when you print on vellum that you let it dry for at least an hour before trying to cut it out.

          Oh man.... I've been looking at invitations all flippin' day. There are WAY too many options out there!! I have so many ideas and I know I need to pick JUST ONE. I even took a trip to Micheals for a paper hunt. That store is so dangerous for me, i could easily spend a fortune.

          I think I'm going to order these pocket folds. They are nice and affordable. I'm going to get the bronze metalic. And make a paper belly (what they call that outer wrap thingy).

          I got a question for you gals though what did you use for envelopes? i know there are such things as lined envelopes and non-lined (honestly I don't know the difference). Or did you get the regular white envelopes? I just need a little direction on what to do for envelopes... please

            Melissa - I kept it simple & used the envelopes that Cards & Pockets has...that way I didn't have to worry about finding the proper size elsewhere. But I'm lazy like that (actually, didn't trust myself!)

            thanks Christa.. I missed their envelope section. I guess it's only an envelope, right?!

              The tricky part is getting your RSVP insert card sized properly for its envelope...I completely F'ed that one up first try :)

                I bought metallic champagne envelopes for the invitation itself, and metallic crimson envelopes for the RSVP cards. They came from Discount Wedding Invitations, Vellum Paper, Vellum Envelopes, Card Stock Source - Paperandmore.com. They have several different sizes of envelopes, and you can order samples. When you buy the actual envelopes, they come in lots of 50, but they have a great selection of colors and sizes. Just make sure to measure your invites and make your RSVP insert the correct size!

                  I bought my envelopes (both the outer one and the RSVP one) from Cards & Pockets just so I knew they'd fit and I wouldn't have to worry about it. I got the outer envelope in metallic white and I'm quite happy with it. The RSVP envelope doesn't come in metallic, but it's simple and fits perfectly so I'm happy. They were really cheap too.

                  Any suggestions for getting the RSVP insert to fit into the RSVP envelope? Or am I good if I use your template?
