Selecting wedding invitations can be mind-boggling. But if you’re looking for something a bit different but with a look of pure class, you’ll be impressed with a pocket wedding invitation. A pocket wedding invitation is one that is usually smaller in size than a traditional wedding invitation which is the size of a standard greeting card.
Another distinct characteristic of a pocket wedding invitation (the main characteristic, really) is that the invitation is self-sealing; the invitation and envelope are all one in the same. Pocket wedding invitations are available in a variety of styles and colors.
Pocket fold wedding invitations can be printed on linen paper, heavy card stock, vellum, or composite papers. The invitation can be classically simple, ornate or printed with a watermark photograph. Most even come with the ability to hold reply cards and/or directions for lodging and the reception and seals for mailing.
By now you’ve probably realized one of the major benefits to using a pocket styled invitation is that you don’t have all those envelopes to stuff. Wow! That’s quite an advantage-especially with everything else you have to do when planning a wedding.
Another positive aspect of these invites is that they are environmentally friendly due to the fact that they don’t use as much paper as traditional invitations.
You can find pocket type wedding invitations for traditional weddings, country weddings, beach and tropical weddings, weddings with a sports theme or weddings that are all frills and lace.

Because of their smaller size, the font will need to be smaller than what you might use on a traditional invitation. Wording will need to be kept to a minimum.
You’ll need to restrict yourself to traditional wedding invitation wording. If you want a sentimental verse you’ll need to have it on the outside of the invitation rather than as part of it.
There is one thing you need to be aware of, however. Pocket style wedding invitations are more expensive than traditional wedding invitations. They average $250-300 per 100 with some of the more expensive ones running over $500 per 100.
In comparison, traditional wedding invitations cost about one-half that amount (or less). You just have to ask yourself if the distinctive look of a pocket style wedding invitation is worth the extra money.
