    I’ve been debating the same thing.  I hadn’t thought about weather … I was more concerned about privacy issues and the thank you being exposed for anyone to read (not that there’s anything private about a thank you…just seems weird).  I’m on the fence so I’ll be anxious to see what replies you get.

    I sent Thank You postcards without an envelope, I just thought it was weird to send a postcard in an envelope. I wasn’t worried about privacy (everything I wrote was totally inocuous) and they didn’t get wet/destroyed from what I’ve heard. I do know the post office slapped a sticker on the front of at least one which was very annoying.

    In the envelope. You appreciate it when guests gave you presents that were wrapped up pretty, right? It’s the same thing in my mind.

    since you bought the envelopes already, i’d just go ahead and use them.  if you had just ordered the postcards, and were thinking about having to find and order envelopes?  i’d say it’s not worth it!

    I ordered post cards also, since the envelope came with them and both our families are fairly traditional I went witht the envelopes.  I also just thought it looked better.

    I’d prefer the mail man not be privy to the generous nature of my gift giving.  I’d like it in an envelope, but the environmentalist in my says no envelope. 

    We did postcard RSVPs and some of them got back to us looking pretty ratty.  So that may be a concern as well.
