So I know technically an inner envlope is a waste of paper, but to me it feels more “formal” and traditional. But there is an extra cost per our stationary company, and we would def want to calligraphy the inner envelope with the names of the invited per tradition (more costs).
Can anyone share their decision to go with or without the inner envelope? Pros and cons?

I’m planning on using in inner envelope, for the reasons that you said. I haven’t bought my outer envelopes yet, but I plan on buying just plain white ones, then having the names of the guests in nice scrpit on the nicer inner envelopes.

I read about this on some other blog. The only reason people use the double envelope is because the outer envelope gets thrashed in the mail going through the machines. I for one probably wont use an inner envelope, my invites will be one of those pocket folder ones. I don’t see the point of having the inner envelope unless y ou are going for a more formal look and have the extra $ to spend on it. Not to mention the additional time it will take to adress the inner envelope with names.

While I understand that it is more traditional and looks nice wedding are so expensive and I thought the cost was better used elsewhere. Once the open the invite they throw both away and who is going to remembethe hat it only came in one envelope in a few months. I it is important to you go for it but we chose not to.
