I wouldn’t put a diagonal address on any of the envelopes that are going to be mailed. Even though it looks gorgeous! There are SO many things that stop your invitations from getting to your guests…I’d rather be safe than sorry here. And usually, the post office is pretty picky about how and where envelopes are addressed.

And how would the RSVP card be set up?

@vanessa7:  Makes sense! Could you put “Name(s)” or something before the line? You would think that it would be obvious to write your name(s) there…but I’d hate for blank RSVPs to come back to you! It happens sometimes believe it or not.

Or…several people on here (including myself) lightly wrote a small number in the corner of the RSVP cards (and had that number on a list attached to the guest the invitation was sent to) in case the guest forgot to fill in the names.

@vanessa7:  I wouldn’t worry about it being noticeable. Just meaning, does it matter if your guests notice? This is the one piece of the invitation suite that they will NOT be holding onto, as they’ll be mailing it back to you. So I say it’s the one piece that can be more practical and helpful for you! 🙂

We wrote ours on pretty lightly with pencil. It was there, but it wasn’t in-your-face. 🙂

@vanessa7:  You know, I think that’s one of those things where we as brides are perfectionists, but our guests won’t notice or care NEARLY as much as we do. So I think the question is, are you okay with it? And if you are, I say go for it!

Though, if the consistency is important to you…what is your other option?

@vanessa7:  Seems excessive to me, too. I personally would decide that it wasn’t worth it, but again, that’s your call. I always just tried to remember that a bride worries about these things far more than her guests do!

These are gorgeous. I really wanted to do angled envelopes, but I couldn’t get it to work on my program (I printed the addresses on the envelopes). Can you do the invitations angled instead?

I agree about the cost to do the envelopes by the calligrapher is probably not worth it.
