I've been meaning to upload these pictures for the longest time! I designed the layout and style of our Envelopment invitations. The outside is a shimmery navy blue with landscape orientation. The inside had a shimmery green layer with ivory layers on top. The font colors matched the blue and green matting. The outer envelope was a pearly ivory color. There were three insert cards: reply postcard, planning card, and day of wedding card. We chose post cards to save a little money on return envelopes. The planning card included info about the hotel discount, our wedding website, the menu, and other travel info. The day of card included average weather info for our wedding in Las Vegas, directons to the venues, event info, and contact information for my hostess and MOH in case our guests needed extra help. Since we had a "desination wedding" I really wanted to include a lot of information in our invitations. I wish I could have put them together myself but at the time I was really busy and didn't have the time to do so. I really love the way they turned out!
*Lessons learned: It's surprising (not to mention ANNOYING) how many people didn't RSVP--even though it was a pre-addressed and stamped post card so you'll definitely want to set your reply by date so that you'll have plenty of time to contact those who didn't RSVP in time. Also, I didn't learn this tip until after my wedding but you should number your RSVP cards because people forget to put their names on the cards :p
