I don’t know about sorting and all with the post office.

But personally black envelopes seem so morbid for a joyous occasion? Just me though.

My invitations are black pockets but come with white envelopes. In your case I love the idea of black because I think it’s actually pretty regal. It’s not often that you receive black envelopes so it will make a statement when someone receives it! I would assume the post office would be fine.

How are you doing the addresses on the envelope? White labels, metallic pens…?

My invites went out in black envelopes, I havent heard of anyone not getting them because of it!! I did one of the wrap around labels in ivory though so the addresses were very legible.  If you want me to I can try and upload a pic tonight.

My invites are going out in black envelopes, with white calligraphy, and we had our calligrapher do our names that our stationer (whatever) printed on our invites and save the dates.  I found them both on Etsy, saved a ton of $, and got the invite suite of my dreams!

We did our Save-The-Date Cards in black envelopes. I used white wrap around labels for the addresses.  They came out looking very elegant.  FH cousin got married last year and used black envelopes for their invites and they used silver metallic pen to address the envelopes.  I think both looked nice.

We did our invites in black envelopes and I used a silver Calligraphy pen to address them and had no issues (several were sent international to the US). Everyone remarked on how different it was and they loved the classy look of the black. Plus they stood out even more against other mail.

We used the papersource black envelopes for our STD’s and everyone received them, we even sent half overseas with no problems. We used a square label that I bought at Lakeshore Learning store for a great price. I know that alot of the guys that received them also thought a black envelope was pretty awesome for a wedding.
