Use the clear labels! In the end, it’s just a piece of paper. And with all the goodies inside, odds are your guests will be throwing away the outer envelopes anyway (and even if they didn’t, no one is going to scoff at your clear labels anyway)


Just do what you want! No one will care. 🙂

I used clear labels for my Save-The-Date Cards. My advice would be to get the larger ones so you can print the addresses at a decent sized, fancy typeface. I downloaded (for free) some really pretty fonts. I used clear Avery labels and because they are matte in appearance, there is no glare or shine, they actually looked good. I would get the 2″ x 4″ size. When you use a fancier font it somehow takes up more space on the label than the normal Arial or Times New Roman.

@MrsMermaid:  I used clear labels for our return address, but hand-addressed the 50 invitations.  But honestly, only because I really like my handwriting and it was fun, I spread it out over a long period of time.  If it would not have been fun, I would have printed the labels, Wedding Industry Complex Gods be damned.  Especially if you use a nice-looking font, I see nothing wrong with it.  Cute invites!

We used clear labels, too! As you can see from this thread, plenty of bees did and it all turned out ok. Smile My Fiance and I had discussed handwriting the envelopes but it took us days to put the invitations together as it was…no way were we handwriting that many! We chose a nice (legible) script and I think they turned out quite elegantly.

I was going to write on the envelopes but ended up printing on them instead using my printer instead.

I used clear labels. They were free because I had them on hand, and that mattered more to me than worrying about the “invitation gods” striking me down. I also used Papyrus font (the horror!) because it looked awesome and fit our style.

Do whatever you want to do!
