Where does the wedding reply card go in the packet? In the inside envelope or outside the inside envelope that holds the wedding invitation? Please, answer as soon as possible.

Where does the wedding reply or response card go in the wedding invitation packet? In what order do the pieces appear in the packet?
The largest piece of the packet is the large outside envelope on which the recipient’s name and address are handwritten, before the filled medium size envelope is slid into the larger envelope.
This medium size inside envelope protects the most important piece, the wedding invitation, which is covered with an ultra thin layer of tissue paper to keep it fresh.
The reply card and envelope are neatly laid on top of the tissue paper, followed by any separate instruction cards for the church, house of worship, or reception venue that are being included in the packet.
The reply card is not inserted into the reply envelope, but tucked under the back flap of the small reply card envelope with the text facing up toward the viewer. The self-addressed return envelope text is facing the tissue paper.
The recipient removes the inside envelope from the outside envelope to see his title and last name written, but there is no address. When children are also invited, their names are listed here after their parents’.
Children eighteen and older receive their own invitation.
For instance, centered on the envelope in order of age:
Mr. and Dr. Wilson
When removing the wedding invitation from the inside envelope the reply card and its envelope appear on top first asking you to consider the invitation and fill out the reply (response) card before mailing it back in the small stamped return envelope. The tissue paper protects the wedding invitation underneath.
