Envelope liners - do people EVER see them (since most use letter openers)?
There are SO many boards on here about envelope liners, and everything I see is very positive about them, which the exception of a couple brides saying they are a pain to DIY. My mother nixed the idea right off the bat by pointing out that nearly everybody opens envelopes with a letter opener, which would cut the top in a way that nobody would EVER see the envelope liners!
I considered sealing the envelopes with a wax or vellum seal, but have read that you still need to seal them with adhesive so that they don't come apart in the mail. Then, I decided I could just add an outer envelope, and line only the inner envelope. On the forums, however, it looks like most brides actually suggest lining only the outer envelope!!
I'm stumped by this, so I'm just looking for opinions on whether people actually see envelope liners, and advice from any other brides who actually thought this one through and came up with a good solution. I'm kind of in love with some patterned paper I found and really would like to incorporate it in some way - if not as an envelope liner then somewhere else in the invitation suite. Tips and ideas for that are also appreciated!
