I work at a print shop & was just going to print out labels to put on the envelopes to send out. I absolutely HATE my handwriting & just spend 3 hours typing all addresses in the internet, NOW my Aunt messaged me and says it’s not proper ettiquette. & I’m beginning to think she’s right…it seems more personal. Now I feel like I spent 3 hours on the computer designing a label layout & typing in addy’s for nothing!

I typed mine and printed the labels..I already send the save the dates and plan to do this with the invites……with all the weddings i have went to i can honestly not even remember what the front of any of the envelopes looked like…i really think no one really cares.

I planned on doing the same thing, both for our save the dates and invites. I mean, come on, I’m looking at 160 invitations… Future Mother-In-Law about had a cow. LOL. I may tell her that I’m doing labels, and if she doesn’t like it, she is welcome to break out the calligraphy pen!

Don’t worry about it!!! Technically if you’re going with the (very) traditional etiquette, you are supposed to handwrite them, but it really doesn’t matter at all! I know tons of people who’ve done them on labels, and I plan to as well!

I hand wrote them. I felt it was more personal. I just took my time and made sure I had extra envelopes.

I’m doing clear labels. My hand would fall off if I had to hand write 150 invites!

Find a handwriting font and print them out. Your Aunt would never know 🙂

I printed on clear labels… and the last few, that got added at last moment, I hand wrote….
Maybe do labels, and then, *evil chuckle* hand write your aunt’s. 🙂 🙂

i did clear labels. i don’t have money to pay someone else to write them for me, and i just don’t want to take the time to do it myself when they will just throw them away, and most people probably wont even notice.

I have a tablet computer (you can write on the screen) and it comes with this neat program where you can turn your own handwriting into a font. This is likely what I’ll do when it’s time for invites, etc. It will still look a little font-y, but I can say with true honesty that it’s my handwriting!

I didn’t use any labels but I printed mine off the computer. I don’t wanna diss any brides here that used/will use labels but everytime I get an invite with a stick on label, I just don’t find it pleasing (just my opinion). Plus, I heard it’s not the right etiquette to do so. For me, it was more of aesthetic reasons that I didn’t use labels. I tried calligraphy but after 2 addresses, my hand was dying! So i went with printing them off the computer and I’m pretty sure I spent less than 3 hours printing them LOL!
Good luck ladies! 🙂

Can you use lables for the return address and hand write the destination address? Then you would have a little bit of both worlds. lol.

Let me know what you decide. I am using clear labels 🙂

I’m printing labels. Who has time to hand write a bunch of envelopes that nobody cares about anyway. Not I said the cat!
