I’ve seen alot of bees having the invite envelopes handwritten, I myself have awful handwriting, but getting calligraphy done just is NOT in our budget. I was going to put the envelopes through the printer…is this a no-no? any other brides printing not writing their invite envelopes/rsvp?

I used my printer to print the addresses. The envelopes came out beautifully. I downloaded the Bickham Script Two font from 911fonts.com which matched the font printed on my invitations.

Etiquette wise you are not supposed to print addresses. It’s more formal to have a hand written address and it shows your guests that you took the time to address each invite personally rather than just running them all through a printer. Is there any one in your family or friends who has pretty handwriting? We had a friend of my mother’s do all of the addressing since my wedding was in my hometown and I life half way across the country so I couldn’t do them myself.

unless you’re in the “etiquette be damned” mindset, lol. (which I am… plus I have problems with hands cramping and wrists hurting… not to mention my back, which is why I limit certain crafts and hobbies…)
honestly? I could care less. I’m gonna be using address labels and if that deters people, well, tough. If my Fiance wants to address them, he can, but I’m not.
And, really, if we’re going to go with etiquette rules, isn’t there one about using postcards as RSVP cards??? Shouldn’t THEY be in an envelope???
Also, how many people are going to worry about whether or not you broke etiquette to send a wedding invite? If they take the time to complain to you, wouldn’t that say something about THEIR manners??? 😉 (so, even if they do think it’s horrible and despicable, they won’t say anything because it isn’t proper hehehehehe)

Sure…technically, it’s a “no-no.”
But it often turns out gorgeous and neat. And really…who keeps the envelope anyway?
