I know you have probably been looking around for a while at the various options for inviting your guests to the wedding.
It can be a bit overwhelming when you see so many different ideas, how would it all work with what you NEED for your wedding though?
You really just need to know what you are looking at will be suitable, don’t you?
Let’s take a look at Pocketfolds, for a minute.
They are kind of like a ‘folder’, of the most beautiful sort, with a pocket to keep all your additional information safe.
They will often have a beautifully decorated ‘flap’ or enclosure of some kind, which is even more exciting because you can’t even guess what it might look like inside.
There are lots of different layouts and ways to present the first peek of your special day, and when guests receive them, they are certain to be thinking a lot more about your wedding.
Rather than ‘just’ a card (there is nothing wrong with sending these, if they are well made!) the additional info cards can then be kept to one side when the gorgeous keepsake has been tidied away (which will happen eventually, I’m sorry to say). The pocket is perfect to store the info cards, which might have the following information on them:
An RSVP card
A Gift List
Menu card/Response to Menu requests
Venue Booking information
Directions (I am finding this one less and less nowadays, with just a postcode being enough for most people – although if the reception is held somewhere other than the wedding venue, it can come in useful)
Additional information about Music choices for the reception, transport options, flight details if getting married overseas.
Looking at that list you might now be thinking Whaaaat? How many inserts? But you won’t need all of them, you might not even want to have a gift list (I often find this with my couples, but once the lovely poems available to choose from are read at an appointment this can change too) and I always say to my couples there is no MUST include. And I always suggest printing on both sides, which can help save unnecessary inserts and postage costs – it all adds up!
Your choices for all of these are going to be quite personal to you, depending on what you have for your wedding.
The thing about Pocketfold style invitations is they are such a nice neat way to send all the information, and your guests will undoubtedly feel like you really want them there, having gone to all the trouble of having invitations like these made specially.
When you get one of these sent to you it really does feel very special – I received one myself, for a friend’s wedding a few years ago – I had actually made it as well so that was a bit surreal but there you go. It really was a lovely thing to get from the postie instead of a bill! I’m perhaps a little bit biased as pocketfolds tend to be the style of invite I make the most. But I think that says a lot about how popular they are.
They are beautiful, practical and perfectly neat all at once. They can be personalised, to match in with your colour scheme and any themes you might have too – What a great way to announce to your friends and loved ones that you are tying the knot and you would love them to be there!
with layers of beautiful card with soft, romantic curves and shimmering sparkle.
Carefully hand decorated with refined loops made from the finest quality satin ribbon and finished with a fabulous sparkling heart embellishment – not too big to overpower this gorgeous invitation but big enough to make a statement.
You can, of course replace this with your choice of embellishment, from a carefully hand-picked selection here. And while you’re at it, why not choose a colour of ribbon that works perfectly with your chosen theme.
I adore the simplicity of this invitation suite
which can be used throughout your wedding stationery, from Save the Date cards, to Orders of Service, Table stationery and Thank You’s ready to send after the big day.
A Luxury framed seating plan in this design will look so welcoming to your guests when placed at the entrance to your wedding breakfast room. It really does set the scene for a very special day indeed.
A crisp,square white linen pocketfold, with pearlescent card layers and dazzling diamante detail, complete with 2 envelopes – one for sending and the other for your RSVPs to be returned – this design is an absolute must if you are looking for elegant perfection and classic style.
A stylish, beautiful design for the bride and groom who prefer simple, understated elegance.

This gorgeous, detailed and delicate design has been hiding from us!
I wanted to share with you that I have been a busy fairy recently – updating various bits of the website, so although the name of this design has been around a while, I feel silly to say the photos were somewhat hiding from the spotlight – because I felt I didn’t have any that showed it off properly!
An eye-catching, exquisite and delicate design – Captivate
I am making it my mission to change and make-over the images on the site, so you are able to see much more of the stunning detail my work is known for, so I thought I would start with this beauty (I hope you’ll agree this is a stunning design), so elegant and classy – and re introduce it to you.
I absolutely love the embossed, touchy-feely nature of the papers used
on designs like this one, there are several options to choose from and love hearts just say it all, don’t you think?
The crisp, white cardstock and papers seen here just add to the glamour and style of this gorgeous pocketfold invitation, which is a square one and created from subtly textured (always, there’s always something to feel in my work, no matt finish card to be found here!) cardstock also used throughout the inserts, so give a lovely crisp quality to the printing too.
For the happy couple who like the finer things in life
the lavish detail brought together in the careful creation is not for the faint-hearted.
Captivate Evening Invite
Also available in this collection you can get a full matching set of stationery, including Save the Date cards, matching Evening Invites as pictured, coordinating daytime stationery is also available with place name cards, table cards and a matching seating plan just to start you off.
Don’t hold back on these little additions and the attention to detail will shine through on your big day.
