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.
Develop a secret code for replies: Some people are so excited to send their reply card back that they forget to write their name on it or their writing is illegible. A great fix is to number your reply cards so that when someone rsvp's with no name you'll know who it is. The most discreet way to do this is to write a small number in pencil on the backside of the rsvp card and keep a corresponding list of guest names and numbers so you can check them off as you receive them. You may be surprised at how many guests forget to write their own names on the rsvp cards!
