silver chevron lined envelope

A lined envelope is just about my favorite stationery detail.  It gives a hint of pizazz, a little razzle-dazzle in a completely frivolous and fun way.  Lined invitation envelopes are perfect for weddings because they can give your guests a little extra hint towards the mood and color palette of your upcoming event.  Because so much information has to be shared on the actual invite, sometimes there isn't quite enough room for all of your personality to shine through.  Lined envelopes take care of that dilemma.  Check out this fun collection of patterned, lined envelopes for wedding invitations that we have assembled!

When you want a metallic liner, it's fun to also include a pattern. Above, a silver chevron gives this modern invitation a jaunty touch.  Below, this gold and black pattern on the envelope liner hints at an Art Deco affair.

Is white a big part of your metallic color palette? Gold, black, and white weddings are completely on-trend this year.  Leave plenty of white space in your liner pattern.  Both the hatch pattern (above) and the smattering of tiny hearts (below) keep the white space front and center, not overwhelming it with metallic glow.

Will travel be an element of your wedding's theme? From destination weddings to honeymoon registries, globetrotting couples love to let their wanderlust show.  Line your envelopes with maps, such as with this gorgeous masculine invitation (above).  Or, if you happen to be traveling somewhere specific for your wedding or honeymoon, flaunt something local. The modern ikat pattern below would be ideal for a Southwestern event.

If bright or deep colors are in your wedding's scheme, a liner is a great place for a pop of your fave hue. Below, the red and white polka dotted liner incorporates the pattern of the marquee lettering of the invitation's font.
