    I wish I could say I was writing them all out by hand. Sadly, my writing isn’t the prettiest (or most legible)!

    My handwriting is not amazing, but I thinkaddressing them myself is the most hassle-free option πŸ™‚

    I have pretty awful handwriting as well, but I bought a set of calligraphy pens and it looks sooo much better πŸ™‚  So I’m going to hand write them

    We’re using pretty wraparound labels that match our invites.  My handwriting is pretty nice, but printing out labels is so much easier!  πŸ™‚

    I had one of my bridesmaids do them for me since she has gorgeous writing. She was more than willing to help out and I sat with her to do them. We started early and spanned them out across a few weeks so it wasn’t such a huge project all at once. Everyone commented on the handwriting and loved them. Check out your friends/family handwriting if they are willing to help!

    I’m printing directly on the envelope, both outer and inner ones. I don’t think my handwriting bothers me as much as the imperfections do, I don’t have a steady hand and not having straight lines kills me! So I’m printing them using Bickham font and I lo-ove them πŸ™‚

    I’m handwriting them. My writing is okay… I’m no calligrapher, but nothing will get lost in the mail for sloppy/unclear addressing. πŸ™‚ We had a calligrapher do my Bat Mitzvah invitations way back in the day… it was really pretty, but it’s one of those things that I can’t fathom spending the money on now. I wouldn’t print them, though; I don’t like the way labels look and the evelopes don’t feed well through my computer. (I do like wrap-around labels, though… but the return address is already pressed on my envelopes so I don’t really need them.)
