We had an assembly line putting my invites together… 2 maids, 2FSILs, me, and the Maid/Matron of Honor. I was addressing the envelopes and passing them to Maid/Matron of Honor to stuff and seal.  Maid/Matron of Honor licked every single one, I could not believe it!!

oh and there were 125 of them!  I suggested she use water and a fingertip…

Good idea on the finger or q-tip ideas……just be careful you don’t over wet. I don’t think anyone mentioned that above, I only read several and didn’t read all 32 posts so far, but if you over wet then the envelope won’t seal or you will soak the paper and then it will soak the invite…..BAD!!!!!

I used a makeup sponge – totally agree with above to be sparing with the water. I had a couple that wouldn’t seal after I got them too wet!

Bleck, I hate the taste of envelopes 😛 I’m most likely going to use a sponge as well.

Nope!  Too many envelopes to lick! Yucky! Damp sponge did the trick 🙂

NO! we used a damp sponge and a damp paper towel.  Blech, I would have been seriously ill if I had licked them – and I only did 36 envelopes!
