All-In-One or Seal and Send Invites Anyone?

Anyone use these/see them in person? Seems pretty cool, basically all the information folds together, the RSVP cards can be ripped off, and when completely folded forms the envelope. Anyone ever get one or see one, I'm about to request some samples but am impatient.

    My FSIL did these when she got married. I thought they were nice. My only concern would be that since there isn't an actual envelope, what if they get damaged by rain or something like that?

    I requested some samples of a few from Invitations by Dawn and I wasn't impressed. The paper felt cheap (not sure if they have upgraded ones) and I was worried that the perforation wouldn't tear properly. I guess I cared more about invites than I thought. lol

    - Good point. I know some invites do double envelopes to better address who specifically is invited, so maybe I'd do that.

    - @Lauren. True- good point. Some of mine were from theres. Honestly I have 200 invites to send out with a semi-destination wedding so I have too much info and the cost for traditional invites is close to $1,000. I may need to sacrifice quality at this point but I appreciate keeping my expectations low

    I ordered our seal and sends on Black Friday. They should be here by Friday or Saturday. I will update on how they turned out.

    I wanted to use these but after we received an invitation using this format and J threw it away (thinking it was an ad) I reconsidered.

    I think they are cute and uncomplicated. Get samples Smiley smile

    I would worry about them being damaged, the postal machines catch the open edge and rip etc.

    also, is the rsvp just a postcard, or need an envelope?

    I found some that FH and I feel in love with and were going to do until I received the sample and thought the same thing as what happened to Tina!

    And my mom is a total Mom-zilla right now and wanted the invites with the bazillion cards and envelopes...it was just easier to spend the extra $50 than hear her squawking about it!

    I *think* they're post card RSVP. I'll let you know when I get the sample.

    Try googling the terms and a ton come up, here are the sites I looked at

    A friend of mine did this for her wedding. I was not a fan. Ours arrived ripped and the Post office ink was smeared all over it. She had some other mishaps of people throwing them away as well.

    My FH really likes them and we ordered a couple of samples but the RSVP card was already torn off of two of them....we (he) were pretty bummed.

    We did the paper snaps all in one. Invitations were the bottom of the priority list but we loved what we ordered. We've received many compliments on them- guests stating they're convenient and they loved how the RSVP card was perforated and a postcard. Overall, we are really happy with what we ordered!

    I finally got my invitations in, after waiting at the post office for 20 min because they only had one clerk even though its December and EVERYONE is mailing stuff. Ok end mini rant. Here's the update:

    I am very happy with the way the invitations turned out. I ordered my seal and sends from Ann's Bridal Bargains Black Friday and they came in a week later. They are a good quality card stock and fold easily where they are supposed to. Folded, they seem sturdy enough the withstand the bustle of being mailed. They came with instructions and a notice saying that the post office requires seals for the sides as well as the fold and I should have received enough seals for all 3 places. The only thing I don't like is that the front side (the mailing side) is totally plain, but that could just be the design I chose. If we have enough in the budget, I can just order coordinating return address stickers to spice up the front a little. Here are pictures of the invitation and the back side once its folded.

    ETA: The RSVP card is a postcard. Nothing needs an envelope.

    I looked at the ones from ann's bridal bargains and I really wanted to like them but I dunno I didn't think they were formal or private enough. The only design I liked was the hydrangea one. They are a great price though. I'm making my trifold invitations as an all in one. But I will use envelopes. I made one panel the RSVP and I'm going to either perforate it myself (you can buy a perforator on amazon for like $7 or go to staples depending how much they'll charge, I can't see it costing more than $10.

    We are doing these but putting them in an envelope to mail out just to be safe.

    Invites aren't super important to us, in terms of them needing to be elaborate, so they look like they will work for us.

    I'm glad to hear everyone else's opinions about the pros/cons. Smiley smile thank you

    Here are ours. I actually think they're really convenient, but I also think that the miniature novels that people send with their invites are a little much so it's just personal opinion.

    We ordered our from Ann's Bridal Bargains then ordered "business cards" form VP to serve as info cards.

    ETA- sorry sideways

    For the wedding in April, this is the type of invitation the couple used. The envelope/RSVP card were slightly damaged, but not so much it was undeliverable. FH and I didn't like them and decided then we would not use them.

    I'm telling you… Send and seal invitations are the way to go! No envelopes needed no separate RSVP cards no separate reception cards like all the other ones… Everything comes in one and you don't have to pay the extra money for all the extra stationary. I got 175 invitations for $181 shipping and tax included! And they're beautiful, from Ann's bridal bargains.com. I got my my black Friday deal too. They always have little savings that you can easily Google if you search for coupons or sale codes. Also if you get a sample mailed to you they give you a 15% off coupon. All I have to do now is buy the stamps,everything else was included in the order, even the stickers to steal them closed! The only thing I'm doing myself is getting some pretty gold card stock and printing out the information for my block booked hotels. I'm not worried about it being damaged because nothing else that I get in the mail is ever really damaged and they have the stickers. I loved the quality the card stock I got was very sturdy and the invitations are absolutely beautiful it's exactly what I need and honestly, your guests are mostly just going to throw them away anyway... Once you come to that conclusion as a bride, everything seems a bit less stressful.

    Thank you all for following up- really helps. I love the idea of additional info business card type. All the info for semi destination made most invites over 1,000 dollars for 180 invites- I think I'm going to risk the damage since invites are low on my priorities. Thank you all so much!!
