I addressed mine myself. There is absolutely nothing tacky about doing that.

I printed mine out on the computer. GO to avery.com. You can download templates, then buy the address labels at staples.  They tell you exactly which labels match your template. Mine came out great, and very easy to do!

I hand addressed mine in plain, shitty writing.  If anyone thought it was tacky then to hell with them.  As long as they get to the desired recipient then who cares how fancy they’re written?

I’m doing mine as we speak(taking a break), and I’m printing mine out, directly onto the envelope. Microsoft word has an envelope section, and you can choose your size and where you want it placed on the envelope. I choose a cursive font that looks like caligraphy, and I think they look great!

Ummm, no, hand addressing is not tacky.  And hiring a calligrapher is nice if you have unlimited funds, but I highly doubt anyone will expect it.  I hand addressed my Save-The-Date Cards, and I’m printing addresses on my invitation envelopes on my home printer.  Looks great, and it’s free.

The way I did it took FOREVER, but it was cheap, they looked very nice, and I was proud to have them nicely hand-addressed without spending a bunch of $$ on it. I ran my envelopes through the printer with a fancy font using very light gray ink, which I then traced over. It worked great for me!

I just finished addressing about a third of my Save-The-Date Cards by hand. I’ll work on the rest this week. I think it’s fine!

My brother hand addressed his STD envelopes, I giggled and thought ‘omg what was my fsil thinking when she let him write this in his chickenscratch?’ but then I opened the evelope, hucked it in the trash and have a beautiful picture of them two to keep…don’t over think it, the envelopes will get tossed anyways (or if it’s a postcard it will most likely be put print side down on the fridge!)

I agree with other posters. I just ordered mine today and that got me thinking about addressing them. -when ordering I was thinking about how many because “what if I mess up addressing them”. It would be great to hire someone, but that is def not in the budget..so I will be taking my time to do this. along with anyone that wants to help with nice hand writing (that means Fiance is out and I’m sure he’ll be devistated when I tell him this. lol)

side note: how long did it take you guys to collect everyone’s addresses? I haven’t started this yet

@goldengrlbride:

I got all the family addresses in like a day through mom/fmil’s address books.  Friends are a proving to be a bit trickier…glad I’m asking early…

@goldengrlbride: Facebook was a saint for me for this. It took me about a week just to get those last few that needed. Family and close friends were easy. Needed a couple friends that  moved or in the process of moving to responde. We have 140 being invited so i didn’t think that was bad
