Put a Stamp on It: It may seem obvious, but it's easy to forget: If you want guests to mail back their reply cards, include stamped (and addressed) envelopes. That way they don't have to pay for the postage. Traditionally, the return envelopes should be addressed to whoever is hosting the wedding; however, if your parents are technically hosting, but you're keeping track of the guest list, you can use your address instead. And you can find customizable stamps to coordinate with your design at The Knot Shop. Tip: Rates do change from time to time, so check before you add those stamps to make sure you have adequate postage.
Assemble the materials to make the party invitations. You will need just a few simple materials to make these pretty party invitations: colored paper (You can use text weight paper or for a more substantial card-like feel, use card stock paper); flower punch (You can use any flower shape you like; for a 3-D effect, you can get flower petals of different sizes and fold up the petals to make raised paper flowers. The flowers used in this craft were made with hydrangea flower punches by Martha Stewart Crafts); glue dots in size small; ruler (You can use the ruler to give the cards a nice, neat fold); scissors or a paper cutter (To cut an 8 12" x 11" sheet of paper in half to fold each half into a card.); washi tape
Remember Your Thank-Yous: Track RSVPs as they come in using a guest list manager tool or spreadsheet. Include a column where you can note what each guest gives you. Then, as the wedding gifts start rolling in, begin writing your thank-you notes so you don't fall behind. For any presents received before the wedding, you should send a thank-you note within two weeks. For those given on or after the wedding day, give yourself a month.
Also, one of the most important aspects in an invite is the set of directions. You must provide your guests with directions that are easy to understand. Gifts are not traditionally given at an engagement, though that is of course the prerogative of the happy couple. A good way to clear any doubt is to mention this preference on the invitations themselves. The couple themselves can specify on the gift requirement, since a lot of couples these days are opting to go for gifts of cash instead of getting a host of items, most of which will, according to narrative law, either be exchanged or passed on as an engagement gift in a never ending circle of magnanimity.
