I think if you’re going to do labels, it’s in your best interest to try and jazz them up by using cool colors or fonts on the labels or trying a differently shaped label.  You could also try faux-lligraphy, where you print the text onto the envelope directly, in a color that’s barely different from the envelope color, and then trace over it, making it look hand-written but high-quality.

If I got a wedding invitation with a generic stick-on address label, I’d be a little less than impressed, personally.  Hope this helps!

Maybe you could recruit someone in your family or a close friend with nice writing to help you….I would not use address labels though.

How about printing the addresses on… that’s what I did!

I made it to wear the addresses were larger on the envelope and “off set” to start almost flush with the left side (hope that makes sense)

They came out great and everyone really liked how they weren’t “centered”

You can do anything you want 🙂 But if your invites are really dressy, it’s going to look weird with labels on them. Like PPs said, you can print them on. My mom is getting a friend with good handwriting to address our invitations. My mom cuts hair, so she is cutting her friend’s hair for free! You could do this with somebody, “trade skills”.

Use the clear labels with a nice font. This is what I’ll be doing!
