It’s not necessary to have one. I had them for the first set of invitations I sent out. For this next set, it was great to save some paper. Also, I’m originally from KC! Hello fellow Kansas Citian 🙂

We didn’t have inner envelopes either.  It wasn’t a big deal at all.  Nice to have? yes.  But I wasn’t going to special order anything since they didn’t come with the invitations we already had.

I can only think of one wedding invitation I’ve recieved that had an inner envelope…it was for SIL’s wedding and she is a huge snotty bitch, so it really didn’t surprise me.

Its not really necessary now a days or very common.  Traditionally the outer envelope would have the address and required mailing info only, then the inner envelope would reflect WHO is actually being invited to the event.  It is totally acceptable by todays standards however to use your outer envelope to indicate who is being invited. The only questionable decision is addressing an envelope to “Mr XYZ and Guest” -I’ve heard different opinions on this. Some people say its not appropriate to put guest on the outer envelope, while others say it is. I struggled with this a little because I didn’t know how to communicate to my guest that they were or were not allowed to bring a date.

I ended up going with JUST their name and indicating on the response card that there are two seast for them. We’ll see if people can figure this one out or not. 

I’ve decided to be fairly laxed about my invites because I doubt anyone I am inviting has spent any amount of time considering invitation ettiquette.

*please note that SIL will rip my DIY inites to PIECES. I only invited her because Fiance made me, so whatever. I hope her plane crashes. (errrrrr, or they just loose her luggage)
