So here’s the deal- we had our calligrapher do both the inner and outer envelopes. They’re now back at my house and I realized the following issue: The inner envelopes have adhesive on them (they’re paper source A7), but inner envelopes aren’t supposed to be sealed. Should I not seal them, but the adhesive will be visible when they open the flap? Or seal them, so the mistake won’t be obvious.
Is this just a silly bridal thing? Do you think our guests will notice if they open the flap and there’s unused adhesive?

I don’t think that they are going to notice either way honestly!

I don’t think guests will notice. When people can invitations their attention goes to the cover of the envelope then straight to the invitation itself.

I’ve never seen the inner envelope sealed (and I’ve never noticed if it had adhesive) – I would leave it as is!

Do they have the adhesive that you would lick to seal? Or the adhesive where you peel off the paper strip and stick it closed? If it is the lick adhesive, I say leave them unsealed and no one will notice it. But if it is the paper strip kind, I’d probably go ahead and seal them. The paper strip will look a little odd if left in place.

The adhesive that you lick to seal. Here’s another thought I had- I could moisten the adhesive w/a wet paper towel and let it dry. Then close the envelopes and set them out.
