I typed addresses on our envelopes and no one said a word.  Looked way better than if I tried to hand write them anyhow.

eh, I don’t see a problem with printing out the addresses, that is what I was going to do. I asked my mom about and she didn’t have a problem, but when I told her my FMIL offered to do i]write everything out she did seem relieved. I think this is one of those antiquited traditions that hasn’t caught up to technology. I say go for it!

As far as your other conundrum, I would just invite the oldest brother and his wife. Make sure you address the invite so she knows she is invited even if he is unable to come. But since you only met once, she may not feel comfortable attending by herself and decline. I mean, who wants to go to a wedding where the only other people you know are your in-laws?

Hope that helps!

I printed my addresses directly onto the envelopes. Easier for me, easier for the post office (who doesn’t have to see my messy writing), and people will throw the envelope away, anyway.

Just to be the contrarian here: traditional etiquette says that wedding invitations should be hand-addressed.  That said, a lot of girls use labels these days and if that’s what’s easiest for you, I wouldn’t worry about it too much.
