    Are you using a colored envelope?

    Black, or maybe a colour matching the wedding/invitation colours.

    I used a black pen to write on the RSVP cards, but I addressed the envelopes in blue, etiquette be damned.  I like writing with blue better and our colours looked better with blue.

    ETA: I voted you use black, but only because I’ve heard you’re supposed to.

    I like the idea of using a wedding color, but ONLY if it is really easy to read on white paper. There’s nothing I have more than writing that is hard to read. The information is more important than how it looks. So, my colors are orange and yellow – not easy to read on white, so I would probably pick black. But if you have a dark color in your pallette, you could use that.

    I voted black as wEll. As other have said if your wedding colors are an easy to read color on white paper maybe you should use that color as it would make your invites stand out.

    My colors are purple & brown, so, I did all the calligraphy on the invitations in purple ink.  (The lettering for the invitations was in brown- I thought the purple would be a nice touch.  I also love doing calligraphy; I learned how to do it when I was 14.)

    Just take into consideration, if you do a color, make sure it’s easy to read on the background.  (i.e., no yellow on white)
