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.

@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.
