It's very important to know how many guests will be attending your wedding, so make sure to leave enough time to get back those RSVP cards early. A standard rule of thumb is to order 10% more extra envelopes than you think you may need. This will come in handy if your calligrapher accidentally makes a mistake while addressing the invitations. Save a few extra invitations to keep as mementos for yourself and close relatives.
If you are using an inner envelop and outer envelope, the fully assembled invitation suite should be placed into the inner envelope, so when the envelope flap is opened, the printed side of the invitation is visible. Then, insert the inner envelope face_up into the outer envelope. The handwritten guest names on the inner envelope should be visible when the outer envelope is opened. If you are using just an outer envelope, insert the fully assembled invitation suite into the envelope. You should see the printed side of the invitation when the envelope flap is opened.
