We are doing the same thing. We are using chocolate brown envelopes. But, we are also using oval green address labels, so the addresses will still be easily read. All our supplies are from Paper Source, if you’re interested in using labels (you can type or hand write on them). Otherwise, the post office will be fine if you use a metallic or white (or whatever color) paint marker to address the dark envelopes.

It doesn’t hurt to take one of your samples down to the post office and ask…

We sent ours out with brown envelopes and address labels that were clear and we had no problem. It should be fine as long as you can clearly read the address.

We sent our STD’s using a black envelope and I wrote the addresses with a silver sharpie – not the most professional looking, but the post office had no issue!

The post office won’t mind as long as it’s legible.  For our invites, we had our calligrapher write in white ink.  It looked current and was completely legible.

If you’re addressing them yourself, just get a bold white pen.  Gelly Roll in white shows up well.
