MrsBPhD:  All of my outer envelopes were hand calligraphed in a manner that looks almost identical to that.  I had no problems at all mailing them.

Mine looked just like that and I had no trouble! FWIW, I did not put any return address on them at all, as I’ve heard that putting the return address in a weird place (we didn’t have space on the front really) can confuse things. We only had 10 invites, lol, so I wasn’t too worried about the return address thing, but it might be a problem if you have a larger wedding.

I would say go with the first option.. nice and big so it’s easily legible, the second one might be a little hard to read, it’s so small.
