Love it or Leave it? Lined Envelopes

Love it or Leave it Party Trend - Lined Envelopes // A Well Crafted Party Discussion

Party trends come and they go— some are classic, and others are fads. Thinking through the many trends that I play around with or decide to leave out of my events, I came up with the following series, which I will post on as I see trends come and go!

Love it or Leave it Party Trend - Lined Envelopes // A Well Crafted Party Discussion

Okay, well… this is one of those party trends that I don’t think I’ll ever hate. The lined envelope got “big” a few years ago and suddenly there were hundreds of posts of people doing lined envelopes for weddings, parties, thank you cards and more. Heck, even I joined the crowd of people giving lined envelope tutorials!

I like the way that they make envelopes feel heftier and more important. I love the way that they can add a pop of color or texture to the invitation. I love the way that they can further touch on a party’s theme. So, basically I’m in the LOVE IT camp on this trend.

On the negative side of this trend is that it is a little wasteful– more paper, more costs, more time involved, and (sometimes) higher postage.

How about you? Do you LOVE lined envelopes or would you rather leave them behind?

(PS. The photo above with the lined envelop and part of an invitation suite is a fun little invite I did for an upcoming party. I can’t wait to share the details!)

    When I receive something in a lined envelope, it feels more special…more important. I think I may even subconsciously take a bit more time with the contents. So yes, I’m a fan. Hope you girls have a great time at your special soiree!
