Opinions Please - Double Envelopes for Invites??

Recommended Posts

Hi ladies,


Although I've seen such adorable boarding pass invitations, I have opted not to go that route.  I am also skipping the whole Save the Date and going straight to the invites.  Has anyone else done this?  In my mind, people should book earlier rather than later, so why not go ahead and send the official invitation?  Right... Wrong???


I am very non-traditional, but at the same time, I want everything to be classy as well (definitely not cheap).  So, I would like opinions on the above mentioned as well as the double envelope scenario - here: My mom thinks that we should have double envelopes.  Is this necessary? 


Just thought I'd ask to see what everyone thinks....


Thanks for your help!!

There are tons of brides on here that have skipped the save-the-dates and went straight to the invites. I don't see anything wrong with it.  We send out save-the-dates 1 year before our wedding (October 2009) because we knew we wanted to get married in T&C but we didn't have the actual resort booked until (December) so the STD was very general and just said Turks & Caicos. As for the double envelope issue, its entirely up to you. My mom thought we should have used double envelopes so that the pretty envelope with the Calligraphy and letterpress didn't get ruined with stamps and just the wear and tear of mailing things but I couldn't be bothered. I wanted the outside to be letterpressed and fancy with Calligraphy so that even as it went through the mailing process everyone could tell there was something special inside. And wouldn't you know it one of my friends told her the post man said to her as he was delivering her mail..."Looks like you got invited to a real fancy wedding or party there". Its up to you, some people do it and some don't, it just depends on how you feel about it.

    • I purchased a suit from Studio Suits in spring 2019.  I looked around everywhere because I was looking for a specific color which wasn't easy to find, so when I found it on their website I read all the info on their website where they claim to deliver high quality suits, premium material, great tailoring, etc. It couldn't be more false. First of all the company is from INDIA and you won't find out until you receive the package. You order from Stu Suits and receive the package from Harry Suits. I received a suit that was at least two sizes bigger, the shoulders where different one from another, the hamming on the ankles was visible and poorly done.The quality of the fabric was extremely mediocre. The lining looked and felt cheap, no attention to details and no mention anywhere of the kind of material.  When I placed the order I did not receive any welcoming email, but simply one stating my measurements were  not correct and I needed to pay for a trial suit 99$. I re took the measurements and confirmed them. They simply replied saying "all sales are final". When I placed the order they said it would take them 6 weeks to deliver the "custom made suit". I received it within ten days, why? because it wasn't custom at all. I can't stress enough how bad the quality of their product and service is. There are so many other services that can deliver so much better quality for less than what this con company asks for. Hope this can help you folks

After being paid in full she did not show up and texted  that she is sick . We had to take over  to save the wedding of 150 guests at Grand Velas . Cabo  MISSING WEDDING PLANNER.
