Easy Steps on How to Assemble Wedding Invitations

Wedding Stationery Etiquette

When you receive your wedding invitations you really love them and can’t wait to mail them out, but if your wedding invitation suite involves multiple cards and pieces, what’s the proper way to assemble them into the envelopes? To help, we are providing some easy steps to guide you through the process.

Step 1: Wedding invitations are typically assembled by size order. First, you should lay your wedding invitation down with the wording facing up.

Step 2: Place the reception card face-up on top of the invitation.

Step 3: Place all other enclosure cards like the direction card, accommodation card, etc. face-up on top of the reception card.

Step 4: Place the response envelope face-down on top of the enclosure cards and make sure you stamp it with the proper postage. Then, place the response card under the response envelope flap, face-up, so that the printed side is visible.

Mailing in 1 Envelope: If you’re using just one invite envelope (an outer envelope), insert the fully assembled wedding invitation suite into the outer envelope. Make sure that the printed side of the assembled pieces are face-up when the envelope flap is opened. (If you order invitations from Elegant Wedding Invites, it will come with the invite envelopes, we don’t offer inner envelopes, please kindly NOTE).

Mailing in 2 Envelopes: If you’re using two envelopes (an inner envelope and outer envelope), place your wedding invitation suite (all wording should face up when the inner envelope flap is opened) inside the inner envelope.  Then, place your inner envelope inside the outer mailing envelope with the front of the inner envelope facing you when the outer envelope flap is opened.

Tip I: If you have envelope liner, ensure the envelope liner is assembled well before you insert the fully assembled invitation suite into the envelope.

Tip II: If your invitation is a folded style, place enclosure cards face-up inside the fold over piece of your wedding invitation so that everything is inside the fold over piece.
