I had my invitations custom made at a print shop, but their envelope press broke and had been on the fritz for over a week. The manager emailed me today and told me that the press has been fixed, but that there are some stray printing marks on the RSVP envelopes.
My RSVP deadline is April 15, so I’m eager to get the invitations sent out. My question: is it tacky to put labels on RSVP envelopes? I printed the mailing addresses for the guests directly on the outer envelope, so when it’s mailed, it looks really nice. My fiance and I agree – since they will ultimately be sent back to us, we don’t care if the evelopes are labelled rather than directly printed on. Bees, what’s the consensus?

I used labels.. they looked just fine and no one said a word about it!

Go ahead and put labels on them. I don’t think that’s breaking any cardinal sin of etiquette or something.

You are definately not breaking a cardinal rule of etiquette. The cardinal rule of etiquette is that guests should reply immediately in writing on their own stationery and mail the reply with their own stamp. Those who do not own and know how to use their own stationery have no business passing judgement on the hostess who is providing them with the necessities of polite correspondence, no matter how belabelled those necessities might be.

If you ate looking for an alternative, you could have a rubber stamp made and use this – I got one custom made for $40

@bella128: Great idea! I wish I thought of this a few months ago. I’m trying to get them in the mail by Tuesday, so I don’t have a ton of time anymore.
Thanks so much everyone!

I used labels. I ordered really cute ones that coordinated with the invitation style. I’m happy to see each one I get in the mail. 🙂
