NO one will hold a return address label against you. I made my own for my Save-The-Date Cards and they came out really cute. I couldn’t bear the thought of writing out my address 70 times either. 

I did it for our engagement party- not worth it.

I am printing my addresses on the envelopes (not hand writing because mine isn’t that great and I can’t afford calligraphy, but it will be pretty). Who cares? I don’t. I gave etiquette the middle finger in the early stages of planning so long as it doesn’t offend anyone… I don’t think address labels will do that.

I’ll be using pre-printed address labels (for us and them.)

Screw handwriting that crap. No way in hell, man. It’s just going to get shucked into the garbage anyway.

We have stamps from Paper Source for the return addresses. They were on our Save The Dates and we got a lot of compliments. We’re going to use them as return address on the invitations, but we have stickers for the response envelopes, because the envelopes are all shimmery and the stamp ink sometimes smudges. I’ll just be regular-writing the names/addresses on – I’m way too lazy to do calligraphy and don’t want to spend the money on it.

I think persoanalized labels are absolutely fine! I used a cute little address stamp, and I know countless others that have used labels as well.

Good luck!

Ugh.  I cannot stand the labels.

We used a very cute stamp from Etsy for our return address and handwrote any other address.

I think labels are totally fine. No one can possibly expect anyone to hamd write hundreds of addresses, especially if your handwriting is sloppy, like mine.

I don’t understand why people are so anti-label. Who really looks at them? I’ve never known anyone to receive a wedding invite and say, “ugh, I’m not going to this wedding because of this address label.” 

Lol

I did this, but I actually sealed the envelope with the return address sticker.  The return address stickers came with my invites and matched them so I thought, What the hell?  I don’t like return addresses on the front of envelopes anyways – even when I pay my bills!

I did go all out and hire a calligrapher for the front addresses though.

@Diamondgurl:  I just used our first names. We’re both keeping our last names and it was hard to fit two first AND two last names on them, and my fiance is up in the air about hyphenating socially (so I couldn’t just put both of our last names). And yeah, we also just plan to use it after the wedding since we’ll live in the house at least through the first kid we have, so probably for the next 5 years.

@Diamondgurl:  I didn’t put any names on ours.  We were moving right after the wedding so I gave the stamp to the people renting our place out, but I did use them for bridal shower thank yous, wedding invites & wedding thank yous.  That’s close to a 1000 times!!  Worth the money.  I always stamp in the middle of the envelope flap.  

For my friend though I did have them put their first names on there.  The style says Susie (heart) Sam.  Its super cute.  I got both stamps from the Etsy seller, Foryoo.
