Hi! I need help!
I plan on printing the addresses for the invitations but WORD has ugly fonts. My question is…can I download some online? If so, how can I go about using them to print my invite envelope? I’m not a graphic designer so I don’t know many programs…I was hoping to be able to get this done on WORD, perhaps?
Has anyone done this and have a great advice? Please share!!!

There are lots of calligraphy fonts you can download for free. A good site is dafont.com. I used Anke Calligraphic Flower Girl for my envelopes (size 15), but there are lots of other options as well.
I made an envelope template in Word, which is pretty easy – just set a custom paper size for your outer envelope size and then set the page margins to an appropriate size. You can use this to print addresses, your address on the return flap, and also your RSVP envelope address. Good luck!

You can download fonts from places like fontstock.net then install them. Then you can use them in and Microsoft program you have (Word, Publisher, etc).
To install a font:
Go to Control Panel
Switch to Classic View
Go to File, "Install New Font"
Then just browse to where you downloaded your font. (I like to put them on the desktop, easy to find!)
Then the next time you use MS Word, your font will appear with the rest of them!

lazybride – have no fear! It’s actually a lot easier than you think!
the previous poster is super right, dafont.com has many many different and good options.For a little more "cutesy" fonts try http://www.kevinandamanda.com/fonts
If you’ve never downloaded a font before (if you’re a PC user, not a mac user) and need to know how to install it, it’s very easy! Just download the font and once you have it either extract or unzip it. From there just copy and paste it into you fonts folder which can be found at you hard drive > windows > fonts.
Good luck! Let me know if you need more help!

THANKS you guys for the quick responses!!! 🙂
I’ll try all of the above – and @ColorCoated, thanks so much for showing me how to get to use the fonts once I download them. I already had one font downloaded but couldn’t get WORD to open it…that is until YOU came along! THANKS!!!

You can totally print your envelopes super easily by making a mail merge! I chose a cute front from KevinandAmanda.com as well and printed all my envelopes myself for my Save the Dates! They looked awesome and cost me no money!
