    I am in the process of designing the invitations and I am absolutely in love with the pocketcard invitations. However I am struggling with what to enclose with the invitations. Also, who all is actually including an RSVP that you want the guest to return to you? Since I know who is coming because they have booked their travel (since they got the info from the STD) should this be included. Accomodations whre described in the STD, so I don't think that should be included. All I can think of is a Welcome Dinner invitation and (possibly) an RSVP. I would love any advise/suggestions for invitation enclosures/inserts.
    Thanks.

    Well, I think most people are doing a STD, even if they are simply asking the guests to RSVP on-line instead of sending it back. If you think you can get away with NOT including a STD, that's better. Less money!
    As for enclosures, what if you do Passport information on one (since that's a HUGE deal). You could do area activities on another.
    It all depends how many you want.

      i did STDs, but still had a handful of guests that i wasn't sure about. so i did 1 RSVP card and 1 welcome dinner invite. the RSVP card had 2 sides, 1 for the wedding and 1 for the welcome dinner.

        I did 4 inserts in total (I had the taller pocketcards so it worked alright) I did one RSVP b/c I never "officially" sent out STD's (and even though I pretty much know who's coming it just seemed to complete the invite), I did one on hotel info, one on area attractions, and one for the welcome dinner.

          Most of the insert type stuff was sent with the STD's. For the invites I only included the RSVP card and a transportation RSVP card (we made shuttle transportation optional since all our guests are staying at different places).

            I would include a formal RSVP, and maybe an information & accomodations card?

              Shelly do you have a sample of your inserts I could look at? did you make the pocketfolds or purchase them?

                We had this in each invite:

                Formal Invitation
                Smaller Welcome Dinner Invite
                RSVP card & envelope
                A "More Info" card that had our website, accomodations, passport reminder.

                i then stacked them in order of size and tied together the bundle with a red ribbon.

                Here's what they looked like for an idea:

                    I am including an RSVP card with envelope and another card that gives the time and the date of the reception/dinner and our website. I didn’t want to bombard people with all these inserts. I was scared that it would all get too overwhelming.
