No. It’s totally not worth it (from a guest’s perspective). Just use the envelopes you have and don’t spend another cent on them!

As a guest, I cant say I ever give the envelopes a second thought other than to see if my (unusual) name is spelled correctly. I probably wouldnt notice if you had a liner or not.

Those envelopes are going to hit the trash can about one second after your guests take the invitations out of them. Save yourself the money and heartache.

For the most part, the envelopes will go straight in to the garbage. Most of the invitations will be saved until the wedding and then also will be thrown out. Not worth it, do not pay more for it. No one is really going to care, their focus will be on the invitation itself.

goldenbrown :  I will be the person who tells you that I always spring for envelope liners – even on holiday cards. I know most people don’t notice or care, but I do. What other posters have said is entirely accurate – the majority of the people will just toss it right away. But you will have one or two people who notice and make it a point to mention to you how lovely the whole thing was – question is, is it worth it to you for those few compliments?

I couldnt tell you what the envelopes for my own wedding looked like, let alone anyone else’s. Save your money!

I can’t remember if a single card or invitation I’ve received for any occasion ever had an envelope liner. So I think skipping them is fine.

It’s a nice touch. Certainly not essential.

goldenbrown :  haha, I can understand that! Hell, you could even go so far as to purchase ONE just for a photo op. But yeah, if I didn’t go whole hog (which I just can’t help myself because I love all things pretty and paper), I’d probably purchase just like a pack of 10 and put them in the invites of those who notice.

I I was in the same boat with mine! I ordered everything and then decided I wanted envelope liners, because I thought it would be a nice touch even if no one else cared if they weren’t there. I made my own with things I drew and got them printed at Cards & Pockets, but they have a bunch of patterned/solid envelope liner options. I think they come in packs of 25. Their shipping was pretty fast for mine so you should get them in time!

I wasn’t worried about the flimsiness. I was more worried about the fact that you could see straight through my envelopes. I ended up turning the RSVP card around so nothing could be read through the envelope, instead of spending extra on liners.

I don’t think liners are necessary.  I was going back and forth myself but decided I didn’t need to spend the extra money.  When I got the invitations, I felt I made the right choice.  However, my envelopes were a nice sturdy paper.  So if you’re saying yours is thin, maybe at least get a thicker envelope.  I also think it’s not a bad idea to just get a few lined and send to people who you know will appreciate it.
