I’m in the process of ordering my invites from Wedding Paper Divas (waiting on a few updates on the proof) and I decided to have both inner and outer envelopes since we’re not doing pockets or belly bands. I’m ordering the outer envelope with a liner and the inner one without. I feel like having both is expensive and fussy. I should have the outer one lined right?
Who knew I could get all worked up over stupid envelopes?!

typo in the heading “lined OUTER envelopes” … sorry about that!

For my invites it is the inner envelope that is lined and the outer envelope is plain. Mine were sold as a set of double wedding envelopes so I assume it is the inner one that should be lined. Also since traditionally the outer envelope was thrown away and the inner envelope handed to the recipient it also makes sneeze that would be the lined one so that the recipient would get to see the lining. For mine the liner matches the invite very well and I would lose that effect if the outer envelope was the one that was lined.

If you line one it should be the inner envelope

Typically one would line the inner envelope and leave the outer one unlined.

@McBezel: fancier inside since the point of two is to protect the fancy paper.

well, it turns out that wedding paper divas can only sell both unlined or both lined, i can’t have one lined and the other unlined. i chose to have one lined envelope and not use an inner envelope.
thanks for the advice everyone!

@McBezel: I think I had lined inner envelopes and left the outer envelopes unlined. I wanted the most dramatic impact when guests opened envelopes to see the invitation.
