This is a weird question but did you guys actually LICK all of your invitations to seal them? My calligrapher told us not to use any "device" to seal them, because it would smear them. She said to lick them all!! But i cannot even IMAGINE licking 200 envelopes!!! YUCK!! Please advise! TIA!

Nope. I’m a non-lick-ite.
Plus I saw what happened to George’s FI on Seinfeld! Pooor Susan. RIP.

No way. If you don’t want to use a "device," get a bowl of water and dip your finger in it, then rub it on the adhesive. That’s crazy.

That is totally crazy. Sponge all the way! …or get a dog to lick them 🙂

lol bellenga, I thought the same thing! Poor George… his penny pinching ways robbed him of a lifetime of happiness. 🙁
Oh I couldn’t imagine… I’ll be using a sponge!

I get a tiny dish or bowl of water and use a q-tip. The water when I was done with my invites looked almost like milk, I feel so different about licking any random envelope after that!!

I just used stickers to seal it… I didn’t even bother with it. Otherwise, I probably would have licked… That said, I didn’t have 200 invites, probably only about 30 tops. I’ve always just licked the envelopes. Hubby usually gives me funny looks :p I do remember that Seinfeld episode though! Man, that show really covered everything!

I so glad so many of you mentioned the Seinfeld reference. That was immediately what I thought of when I read the title!

Somehow I totally missed that one I think! I can’t recall it even though I’ve seen so many of those episodes!

I used stickers I found at Party City to help seal the back of the envelopes. They were little hearts that came out to be pretty cheap when comparing the same ones to the ones they had at Michael’s for almost triple the price. If you’re looking for a seal, they have TONS to choose from at Michaels. Melt the wax and stamp it with your own monogrammed stamp. Just look for it in the wedding section. Unfortunately, we didn’t find them until after we finished sending out the invites. Good luck and let us know what you decide!

Yeah, no way. I used a sponge.
LOL, Belle. And to quote Seinfeld again. The inviations are definitely spongeworthy.

I use cheap $1 store glue sticks for EVERY envelope I have to seal. I always end up with paper cuts on my tongue if I lick them. I bet if you’re careful you can use a sponge without smearing anything. I’d just let them dry really good before stacking them up.
Let us know how it works out for you & good luck! 😉
