I read that addressing by hand was appropriate so I have most of mine done.  It really didn’t take as long as I thought it would.  I wrote the return addresses by hand too.  Did you want to stick that label on the Save the Date?  I would just probably mail the over seas invites earlier.  If you sent the save the dates, you are giving people a heads up.  Then you can just include the rsvp in the invitation like usual.  Maybe i’m misunderstanding your question tho.  If I am, I apologize… sorry 🙁

Although brides choose many different options these days, hand-written names and addresses are still considered to be the standard for wedding invitations. I had mine hand-calligraphed, and they were stunning. I’m not sure I understand the purpose of your wanting to put the reply-by date on the back of your envelopes. I would include it on a card inside of your invitations.

I too would put it inside.  People are likely to throw out the envelope.  If you sent out save the dates, then your wedding website would be a repeated reminder in the invite as well.  I bought a calligraphy marker at the craft store and hand addressed mine completely.  I assure you it wasn’t that difficult, and I did about 80 invites, and my 40 bridal shower invites too.  Just do a little at a time if you decide to do it, and they really flew by.

I agree that it should go inside so that it doesn’t get thrown out accidentally

Is there room on the card to put the “RSVP by” sticker on the front?  Like right below your website maybe?  Or what if you printed it on a second card and used a little brad to attach the two cards together (or a hole punch and ribbon in the corners) so that they won’t get lost and will definitely be seen together?  I agree with pp that it’s something that you don’t want to get lost in the mix, so just throwing out some ideas there..

I’m printing my envelopes with a curly calligraphy type font. I don’t have super nice fancy handwriting and we can’t afford a calligrapher. I don’t think anyone will care. But I would never use a label.
