Pocketfold Wedding Invitations

When we say ‘pocketfold invitations’, we are referring to a set, consisting of:
  1. the pocketfold envelope, an outer envelope made of cardstock (between 250-350gsm);
  2. a printed main invitation card that is affixed to the inside of the pocketfold envelope; and
  3. printed information card(s) that slide into the inbuilt pocket.
  4. closure secures the pocketfold envelope when folded closed. In the numbered photos, the closure is a bellyband (we will discuss the different closure options a little later on)
Be My Guest Design’s pocketfold wedding invitations come with the main invitation card and at least 1 information card. Alternatively, if you would like to DIY your pocketfold wedding invitations, you can order the pocketfold envelopes on their own. The pocketfold envelope is 118 x 158 mm when closed. This fits an A6 card (105x148mm) inside and insert cards in the pocket. It folds closed to fit into our 130x185mm envelopes.
The terminology can be a bit overwhelming!
  • pocketfold envelope is the outer envelope which the main invitation card is attached to, and holds the information cards. It is made of cardstock (between 250-350gsm).
  • mailing envelope is what you will mail your pocketfold invitations in. These envelopes are made of a lightweight cardstock (about 120gsm). Be My Guest Pocketfold Invitations come with an envelope that will fit your pocketfold invitation.
Pocketfold envelopes are not suitable for posting. Your items may slide out of the pockets, or the flap might get caught in the sorting machines and tear. To post your pocketfold, we recommend our 5 x 7″ envelopes.

Pocketfold invitations offer a sophisticated and elegant presentation, with the packaged invite and information cards adding a touch of luxury and style.

The pocket allows for better organisation of wedding details, holding the various inserts – such as information cards, RSVP card & envelopes, wishing well poems/registry info and accommodation details. They are all tucked away neatly into the pocket of each individual invitation, helping guests easily find and keep track of all the information. Couples hosting destination weddings in particular find the pocketfold option really convenient.

For destination weddings where guests may need additional information such as travel details and itineraries, pocketfold invitations provide a practical solution, accommodating all the necessary details without clutter.

Refer to our wedding stationery timeline and checklist post for some guidelines.

Your pocketfold invites fold closed, but to secure the outer flap, most couples opt to include a closure.

The options available through Be My Guest are:

  • Sticker: A 50mm round sticker to match the design. 
  • Tag & Tie: A coloured ribbon or twine, with a square or diamond shaped 50x50mm card tag that matches the design.
  • Bellyband: a strip of card with an adhesive strip on one end, it is wrapped around the pocketfold and can be slid on/off. Designed to match the inside design.

Your first challenge is selecting your favourite design (remembering that we can change the colours and fonts to suit, so don’t stress too much). Once you find your fave, add any extra Information Cards required (the ‘Regular’ size is included by default).

At the ordering stage you can select whether you want your pocketfolds to arrive assembled – or if you’re happy to do a little DIY and assemble them yourself, save some money and pick the “Assemble Yourself” option.

Customising your favourite design to suit your taste is no problem. We have a range of 9 pocketfold envelope colours and 50+ designs. With multiple card options, colour changes and closure choices, the options are endless!

You can swap between any of the 9 pocketfold colours. You can also change the printed colours of the actual wedding invitations and information cards themselves. There is no extra charge for this, however you may wish to add-on a printed proof, so you can check the colours are exactly what you want before we print the whole set.

When we talk about card options, this is for the internal cards that are enclosed within the outer pocketfold envelope. It’s the part of the invitation that’s printed onto, and a lot of the character and vibe of your wedding can be conveyed by selecting a different card option, for example an organic earth feel with a kraft brown card, or for a luxe event, a metallic card.

If you’re not sure on which card to pick, refer to our detailed information on each card option here.

Ordering a Be My Guest Wedding Invitation Sample Pack lets you see and feel what your invitations will look like, helping you choose the right one and avoiding expensive mistakes. We will send you a sample of each of our card swatches for the internal pocketfold cards and a swatch of the pocketfold cardstocks also.

Your pocketfold wedding invitations will arrived very nearly ready to hand out to your guests! We do not add any embellishments that “close” your invitations. That’s because you’ll need to see what guest name is on each invitation, for when addressing and stuffing envelopes.

As standard we have a DIY/Assemble Yourself option. We supply you with everything you need: double sided tape, the pocketfolds, inserts and any accessories you’ve ordered. An assembled invitation will be included in the parcel for you to reference too. You can pay a little extra and have our team assemble the invitations for you if you’d prefer.

Once you’ve given us your wedding details, our designers will get to work!

You will receive an electronic draft of your wedding invitation before it goes to print – so you can see how everything looks, and request any changes needed.

We’ll help your invitation says just the right thing. Our designers are experienced with wording wedding invitations and tricky etiquette traps, so we can help with tweaking your wording. We will also modify the design to accommodate any colours you want incorporated.

A favourite feature of our wedding invitations is guest name printing. This allows you to add your guest’s names to the wedding invitations for a high-end, ultra personalised finish. Here’s more information on printing your guest names on your wedding invitations. There is no additional charge for this service.

If you’d like to receive a hard copy of your invitation, prior to approving it for printing, then order a printed proof.  This allows you to see a physical copy of the invitation, check the colour is what you expect, and the card is the right fit for the vision you have in mind.

For those seeking an extra layer of confidence and assurance, we recommend adding a Printed Proof to your order. This is free for invite orders over $300* (simply add the Printed Proof add-on and use the coupon code printproof when you checkout).

The entire process from design to printing your wedding invites takes only around two weeks. You can expect to receive your digital mock-up within a couple of days, to let you check it before we have your invites printed.

Current wedding invitation turnaround times available here.

Selecting the right invitation

Look through our online shop to find the pre-designed stationery pieces you are interested in. You can also use the search function (a magnifying glass at the top right of each page) or browse by the different categories (colour, style, suite design).

If you’d love to get an idea of the print quality, card options and colours, then order a sample pack. Each sample pack includes a selection of designs plus a set of the card swatches we use & refer to during the ordering process.

You will be assigned a personal designer. She will help ensure your wedding invitation cards say just the right thing, guiding you on appropriate etiquette if needed. We are here to help!

Our blog post series on Wording Wedding Invitations is also great starting point.

Yes. Custom design bookings need to be made in advance as we only take on small numbers of custom clients to ensure you have our full attention and fresh ideas.

We’ve got years of experience in designing for a wide range of people and their special events, so our bespoke packages incorporate all the essentials: extra revisions, printed samples, deluxe envelopes and an overnight courier once you’ve locked in your design.

Ensure you’ve had a thorough look through our designs, as you can pick an existing design and tweak the colours and fonts to suit. You still receive the same great service and attention to detail as a custom-design client, but with a faster turnaround.

More information on Custom Design here.

Yes, absolutely! The Wedding Invitation Sample Pack comes with your choice of three wedding invitation designs, and includes our full range of card swatches.

If you would like to see a printed version of your wedding invitations, save the dates, engagement party invitations or thank you cards before we print the whole run, then order a Printed Proof.

Once the digital design is finalised, we’ll send you the physical printed proof for your inspection. You’ll have the opportunity to check the colours, verify that they align with your expectations, and ensure the cardstock perfectly complements your envisioned design.

We have a curated selection of our favourite cardstocks to give your wedding stationery the best possible finish.

The best card option will depend on the design, print method and colours of your invitation.

Details about the card options we offer can be found here.

We take pride in offering you the highest quality products for your special day. One of the ways we ensure this is by only using FSC-Certified cardstocks. We believe that this choice brings numerous advantages that contribute to both the beauty of your invitations and the well-being of our planet. More information on what this means is available here.

All orders are placed through the website. Whether you want a quote or if you are ready to order,  navigate to the particular product you are interested in.

Once you’ve selected your design, select the extras you require (information cards, upgraded envelopes and/or magnets, paper clips etc).

The ‘Quantity’ field is where you indicate the number required (remember to allow for spares) and click “Add to Cart”.

Complete your contact details and the website will calculate the exact cost including shipping for you. When you are ready to place you order, select a payment option and submit payment.

How customising a design works

FIND YOUR FAVE

Pick your favourite design, and place your order online. Supply your information, colour preferences and any other info.

DESIGNED FOR YOU

Our designers will make tweaks to suit your preferred wording and colours. You'll get a digital mockup to review within a couple of days.

PRINTED IN NZ

After you approve your customised design, we’ll print and assemble your stationery at our Dunedin printery.

SHIPPING

South Island orders are shipped on a 1-2 day courier service. North Island customers can expect 2-3 days. Or upgrade to overnight shipping if timeframes are tight!

WEDDING INVITATION TIMING

Wedding Invitations – once you place your order, you will automatically be emailed a form to complete. This form walks you through all the information we need and will allow you to share any design changes or colour tweaks you want to request.

All Other Stationery – you should supply any wording or customisations when you place your order, via the “Customisation” field. You should inform us of any design changes or colour tweaks you want. If you do not supply the information with your order, we will follow up with you.

Six months before your wedding is the usual time to order the invitations, but there is nothing wrong with being extra prepared. Check out our wedding invitation timeline guide for when you should send save the date cards and wedding invitations here. 

Ideally you’d place your order for wedding day stationery 4-6 weeks before your wedding day. Check out our wedding day stationery timeline here.

 An ‘Express’ option is available for customised day-of stationery, at an additional cost.

Weddings close to public holidays need to allow more time as public holidays will delay couriers. If your wedding is early-mid January, please order early as we are closed over the Christmas/New Years period.

Our design team will be working on your mock-up invite shortly after your order is received. 

An electronic draft mockup, designed in your colours and wording, will be emailed within a couple of working days for your feedback and review. This electronic draft is called a “proof”. Once you’ve received your proof, you return to your designer with any changes or amendments, to perfect your design before print. 

Once printing is complete, we’ll carefully package and post your invitations to you.

We offer a number of optional items to accompany your wedding invitations:

Adhesive magnetic strips can be attached to the back of your wedding invitations. They are thin enough to get through the post without damaging the envelope or invite, yet strong enough to hold up a pocketfold with all its accompanying pieces!

Teardrop Paperclips secure your information cards to the main wedding invitation. Choose from black, silver, rose gold and gold teardrop paperclips.

Address Labels and envelope seals are a great way of addressing and closing your envelopes. 

Matching envelope liners are designed to match your wedding invitation suite.

Design Process

You might have a lot of information to share with your wedding guests. That’s totally fine! There’s a fine balance between including enough detail and keeping your wedding invitations uncluttered so that your friends and family don’t get overwhelmed.

The designers at Be My Guest are experienced in wording wedding invitations and will offer tweaks and guidance to ensure the information you want to convey can be incorporated concisely on your invitation cards.

Printing on the reverse side of your save the dates, engagement party invitations, wedding invitations and any RSVP/information cards is also included if you want it – at no extra charge. You can also add on matching information cards in a range of sizes.

For more advice on wording your wedding invitations, download our free Wedding Invitation Wording Guide.

Yes! Once we receive your wording and design details, your designer will get to work. An electronic draft mockup, designed in your colours and wording, will be emailed within a couple of working days for your feedback and review. This electronic draft is called a “proof”. Once you’ve received your proof, you return to your designer with any changes or amendments, to perfect your design before print. 

If you’ve got terrible handwriting or want to personalise wedding invitations with guest names printed directly onto the invite, you can! This optional service comes at no charge for wedding invitations, or at a small additional cost for Save the Dates/Engagement Party Invitations/Menus.
More information on adding guest names to invites is available here.

Yes! For all customised stationery you’ll receive personal attention to the design and wording of your stationery – and that includes changing the colour scheme to make it your own, and tweaks to fit the design to your preferred wording. 

If you’d like to receive a hard copy of your Save the Date or wedding invitation prior to approving it for printing, then order a printed proof. This allows you to see a physical copy of the invitation card, check the colour is what you expect, and the card is the right fit for the vision you have in mind.

While the electronic drafts (aka “proofs”) we provide are a close representation of the end result/colours, they are not exact. Electronic proofs primarily serve for content and layout purposes. Computer monitors or laser printers can only approximate colours, and actual colour appearance may vary due to differences in colour, contrast, brightness settings, and surrounding lighting conditions on each computer.

A hard copy/printed proof allows you to see a physical copy of the invitation, check the colour is what you expect, and the card is the right fit for the vision you have in mind.

We LOVE everything to match and so try to have full sets of all designs available. Browse the ‘Suite’ of your design (find the list of Design Suites here) to see all the matching pieces that are available.

If there is something you want that’s not listed, no problem – get in touch with us. We often have new pieces that haven’t quite made it to the website yet. If we know you’re after a matching piece, the team can prioritise getting it online for you.

Printed Proofs

If you’re seeking an extra layer of confidence and assurance, we supply Printed Proofs; free for invitation orders over $300*.  

This allows you to:

  • see and feel a physical copy of the invitation,
  • check the printed colour is what you expect, and
  • confirm the card option you select is the right fit for the design (we often include a couple of card options to help you to decide) 

*invitation orders over $300 will receive a $15 discount when using the coupon code printproof at checkout. A charge of $15 applies for the purchase of second and subsequent proofs or smaller orders (less than $300).
