The invitations were printed. The envelopes were addressed and lined. All that was left to do was assemble the suckers. And that’s what we did over the course of one long, boring day.
First, we stamped the return addresses on the back flap of the mailing envelope, and stamped the return address and added postage to the RSVP envelops. Next, we used ZipDry to glue the invitations onto the pockets. We did the gluing in batches of 30 and gave them about 20 minutes to dry before we started the next batch.

Next, we numbered the back of the RSVP cards to correspond to our guest list so we’d know who the RSVP belonged to in case they forgot to add their names. We used invisible ink pens that are visible only under black light (included in the pen caps). This idea was one of the very first things I pinned back last year. So far, everyone has added their names correctly, so the idea hasn’t paid off yet, but we’re still receiving RSVPs. And even if it was a wasted effort, the pens are a lot of fun.
