We are wrapping our invitations in vellum instead an inner envelope.  Our calligrapher said she is seeing less and less brides have an inner envelope, so it seems like you arent alone!

We didn’t use an inner envelope, and it still looks gorgeous.

I really think it’s a waste of paper and money 🙂

I would agree with MsB and also add "time"

I didn’t order one either!  How are you all dealing with addressing the envlopes?  I am assuming the tag would say "Jack and Jill"  (like an inner envelope would) but the tag idea doesn’t really work for me.

I am thinking of putting all names on the outside envelope or "the Smith Family".  Suggestions?  What are you all doing?

I didn’t use an inner envelope and did sort of a tag for the "inner envelopes names". I printed a small 2×2 piece of paper and glued it onto a 2.25×2.25 piece of cardstock (from cardsandpockets) and then glued that to my pocketfold. I put Mr. and Mrs. Smith, etc. on those. I just sent my invites on Friday and have gotten SO many compliments on them. Not one person has made any comments about my lack of inner envelope or the fact that I used labels for my addresses. Haha. Nobody cares and everyone thought my invites were gorgeous… yey!!! So no, it’s certainly NOT necessary!!

i don’t find them necessary, but mine happen to be the sleeve that is part of the invite design.

i agree with the tree/money/time saving idea of just skipping it, but if you really want to have something, tying a small tag sounds like a great idea!

I didn’t have one.  I just addressed the outside of the envelope to everyone who was invited to the wedding.  Before being engaged, I was actually always confused by the multiple envelope concept so I decided to save money, trees and hassle and skip it!! We didn’t have a single problem with people understanding who was invited and who wasn’t this way.

I always found inner envelopes to be really unnecessary and wasteful. I won’t be using them for my own invites. If there are any issues about making sure certain people know how many are actually invited, there are small, subtle ways to include this on the RSVP card, like add a line indicating how many spots are reserved for your invited guests, that kind of thing.

i won’t be using inner envelopes, either. i’ll either do a belly band (if we have excess cardstock from our DIY invites) or just write the names on the "outer" envelope as i would on the "inner" envelope.

Their name is on the mailed envelope, thats enough, you can probably skip the tags
