    another idea for the return addresses is a stamp! we did that for our stds, and it was really reasonable and took way less time than writing it out would have. and we got compliments on it too 🙂 we bought it from http://www.etsy.com/shop/lettergirl

    I agree with finnaroo, a stamp would be a great idea.  You could probably get a really cheap stamp from vistaprint.

    I used clear labels because I didn’t care either. No one commented. Life went on just fine. Definitely save yourself the trouble and just go with the labels.

    I actually printed all of mine, which I guess is an etiquette “no-no,” but hey, at some points you have to do what’s best for you.  I don’t think people will be too uptight about it.  Plus, my handwriting is awful, and I am totally DIY.

    Wow thanks for the link finaroo!  I just ordered a stamp – they are so pretty (and will save me a lot of time!)!

    I used clear labels and because one of our colors is chocolate brown, we used that and it really gave the label a nice look (that and having chosen a really good font for the addresses).

    No one cared, and if they did they were smart to keep it to themselves – folks did love the invite and that’s what counts…  Personally, much of the etiquette predated computers and the use of lovely fonts, clear labels, etc.; I don’t see many of those rules holding up as DIY brides increase in number and cost is an issue.

    You can order a stamp from Vista Print too.

    We just stuck a return address label on the back of ours.  It was a white label on an ivory envelope too.  Know what, I don’t really care and it was the back of the envelope.

    stamp!  love stamps.  that’s what we’re doing.  I’m hand writing all the addresses of our guests, but the return address on the back and the address on the RSVP envelope will be stamped – they way I don’t have to write our address out 300 times … and it can be in pretty font and pretty ink!

    I did care about my invites and put a ton of time and effort into them. I used clear labels for our address (adhered to the back flap of the envelope) and on the reply card envelope. I got tons of comments about how beautiful our invites were. I don’t think anyone cared at all about the clear labels. (Although I did design the labels in InDesign, using our same 2 fonts and shade of brown ink to go with the rest of the invites, and exported it as an image file).
