Printing our invitation envelopes has been the bane of my existance. Our laser printer wouldn’t feed the envelopes through right, so I had to borrow my moms laser printer. They had to be printed one by one as after a few would print, it would start to look dotty. I think it is because our invitations are letterpressed and the paper has cotton in it and doesn’t absorb the same way regular paper does (crane lettra paper).
Anyways, after a few nights of stress and frustration, our outer envelopes are done! We were going to print inner envelopes with guest names, but if we can save ourselves the time and headache, would love to just leave the inner envelope blank.
We are having a very formal wedding, would you think this is okay?
Thanks bees for your input!

I would either print or handwrite the names on the inner envelopes, or skip them altogether. We decided not to do inner envelopes. No need to waste the time, energy, money, or paper.

We did not do inner envelopes, I also haven’t received an invitation with a inner envelope in sooo long. I don’t think it is a big deal at all.

To be honest, if you were to send me an invitation with an inner envelope but no writing, I’d wonder why you went to the expense. But I wouldn’t care or think on it further at all.
So if it’s going to drive you nuts and cause you stress, I say don’t worry about it! Although one thing to note, the only thing that goes on inner envelopes are the actual names of those invited (not the addresses) so maybe they’d be easier?

If you’re taking the time to do the inner envelope (props to you for that!) then you need to take the time to properly address the inner envelope.

If printing is too much of a pain I’d just handwrite the names on the inner envelopes.

Why would you HAVE inner envelopes if your’e not going to print anything on them? Unless they’re going to do double-duty as your RSVP envelopes, it seems kinda pointless.
ETA: Technically, if you are having a “very formal” wedding, you’re supposed to hand-address both inner & outer envelopes (no computer printing). Sooo…since you’ve already bought the envelopes, I guess you should hand-address them.
