When you’re ready to mail your wedding invitations, this is the proper way to assemble them into the envelopes:

Step 1: Lay your wedding invitation down with the wording facing up.

Step 2: Place your reception card, wording side up, on top of the invitation.

Step 3: Tuck your response card, wording side up, under its envelope flap and place on top of the reception card.

Step 4: Repeat this process for all other enclosure cards like direction cards and accomodation cards.

Step 5: Place your invitation suite (all wording should face up) inside the inner envelope. Wondering what your inner envelope is for? Learn more about inner envelopes here.

Step 6: Place your inner envelope inside the outer mailing envelope with the front of the inner envelope facing you. Read how to address wedding invitations  to learn how to properly address your mailing envelopes.

Tip: If you purchase a folding wedding invitation, place enclosure cards face-up inside the fold over your wedding invitation wording.
