We did them ourselves, as well as the whole DIY invite suite. We lined both the outside & RSVP envelopes, and we stamped the outside of both envelopes. Here’s the catch: we only sent out 25 invites! And it was a LOT of work!! I can’t even imagine lining envelopes for a medium or large wedding. OMG how do you brides do it???!

Right now I am planning to use them, but that will only be if time permits. I think it will though because I am way ahead in my planning and DIY. Michaels and Joanns have sales on paper quite regularly, so I think we will be able to manage it budget wise.

I probably won’t. My family/friends are in the camp that they will probably throw the envelope out without even notice. So in my mind it isn’t worth the time/effort.

No, we could have afforded it but I think it is a waste of time and no one notices or cares! Do what works for you 🙂

I didn’t line mine. I would have liked to but I was too laz.
We did kraft paper envelopes so I think they had some pizazz even without the lining. 🙂

@daydreamwanderer–I didn’t even think of doing kraft brown envelopes, but I’d like those so much more than the ivory that I thought I’d end up with. I’m trying to make sure our wedding (and invitations, of course) have personality without being what Fiance describes as a cluster f*ck.

I’m so glad to hear I’m not the only one being lazy/cheap/not letting myself care (much), haha…
I do think they’re pretty, and I wish we could do it (and, let’s be honest, a lot of stuff!) … but you’re all right, I shouldn’t let myself feel bad or worry over it! Thanks for the encouragement 🙂

1. I am lazy
2. I am cheap
3. I would probably screw it up (even if it is really really easy) and end up spending more $$ (see#2).
4. It will be thrown away in the end, and I would hate to add more to the landfill than I already am (I wanted to do e-vites, to be green and all that, but 85% of the guests are computer illiterate, so yeah, paper it is).
Not that I don’t think that they look gorgeous though!

everytime i see a lovely lined envelope, i decide i want to do them, too. then i remember i’m probably the only person who would even enjoy them. i guess it’s just not enough reward to justify the effort for us.

We thought we were going to do them. Then I came to my senses! We have a guest list of 375ish…that was about 170ish invites! There was NO WAY I was going to cut out and glue (or ask my bridesmaids to) all of those liners…just to have them thrown away! And we had really pretty paper picked out too!

I have zero interest in “paper goods” so my invites went into naked envelopes… I’m pretty sure no one noticed or cared.

I was totally on the liner train to start with. In the end we ended up not doing them. We DIY’d all our invites and that was enough to do without fussing with liners. Our guests thew away the envelopes anyways!

My invites have lined envelopes and, as much as I’m sure they will be pretty (haven’t gotten them yet, they’re in the middle of being shipped), I kind of regret paying the extra money for it, as it’s something almost no one will notice.

What are liners?
Oh, okay. I looked them up.
I don’t remember if I ever got an invite with a liner, I bet I did. Ours were nekkid.

They are on my “if we have time and money it’ll be the last thing i do before sending them out” list. Which means 75% we won’t do them.
And honestly, I REALLY don’t think anyone will notice. So I’m not sure why I’m contemplating them.
