I really want to do something creative when addressing my envelopes. I have attached an image of an example of what I’m working on. Just want to know what others out there may think of this????? The light purple being the addressee’s last name.

I like it! Just make sure that any flourishes don’t make the address hard/confusing to read.

@cyansilverstar: I think it’s beautiful, but I would NOT do this for your outer envelopes. It’s fine to have beautiful calligraphy. However, I would not do anything to contribute to the U.S. Postal Service having difficulties in delivering your precious, time-sensitive, wedding invitations, and I think that doing this may cause you much more grief than it’s worth.
On the other hand, if you, like I did, plan to use inner envelopes, you always could have your calligrapher use a similar format (but without the adults’ first names and the street address) on the inner envelopes.

I like it too! It’s definitely pretty and I love the purple!

@cyansilverstar: I would do this for the inner envelopes, and take away the street address.

Beautiful for inner envelopes, nightmare for outer envelopes, our post office has very strict regulations when it comes to adressing and this would be immediately rejected and returned to sender. not worth it.

Pretty! But I agree with PPs – I would be worried about post office drama. If you aren’t doing inner envelopes, maybe you could do that for your return address?

Thanks for the advice everyone. I went ahead and sent one through to my aunt as a test, and it worked!
