Why concertina invitations?

Concertina wedding invitations (also known as trifold invitations) are a clever way to keep the invitation, all the extra details and reply card together.

They are made as one long piece of card, printed on one or both sides and folded in two or more places to fit inside the envelope.

The end panel can be a reply postcard, detachable so that your guests can complete and send back to you without an envelope,

Shapes & sizes

Postcard – 10cm x 15cm
A lovely pocket size, can include three (two folds) or four (three folds) printed panels

Square – 14cm x 14cm
A larger size, with three panels (two folds)

Either size can be printed in landscape and portrait formats.

Add extra layers, bellybands or ribbons

My concertina wedding invitations are design to look fantastic just as they are, with whatever printed design you choose. But if you want to you can add bellybands, ribbons or wax seals for extra detail.

Adding an extra coloured panel to the front can be a nice touch,

When to send invites

You should aim to send your wedding invitations 6 to 8 months before the big day. This will allow you plenty of time to receive and collate all the responses and confirm your final guest numbers.

Don’t forget, you’ll only need one invitation per couple or family, not one per guest. Always include a few spares for unexpected additions to the guest list and of course a keepsake for yourself.
