Hi Bees! I will be handwriting the addresses on the actual wedding invitation envelopes. However, for the RSVP envelope, would you use an address label that matches the envelope (flowers on envelope and the address label has a matching design), handwrite it out, preprint the address on the envelopes… does it really matter for the RSVP card? Thanks!

bonbonsparklesMD: I handwrote but I’d intended to print directly on them but they wouldn’t work in my printer (or the one at work)

Just make sure they’re on the upper left corner, of the front, per http://www.USPS.com guidelines. I just got back an undeliverable piece of mail, because I put the apartment name and number in the upper left corner, instead of a return address. I’ve been doing that for years, too.

We ordered a pretty stamp for ours. It was a bit cutesy, our last names are a color + bird so we had the colored stamp and outline image of the bird). Just stamped the back of the envelope but we’re in the UK where people regularly don’t put return addresses on things.

If you can get it pre-printed on the RSVP envelopes do it. That’s what we did and it’s so much easier (and clearer to read–better chance it’ll actually get back to you!)
I handwrote the names/addresses on the invites for guests too but I don’t think you have to match that with your return mailing address on the invite or the RSVPs. It just makes sense to pre-print something that’s the same 100 times. All the guest info is different so it’s harder to get that printed.

Hi Bees! Sorry for the confusion! I meant my address – should I use matching address labels (super cute!) that match the whole wedding suite or pre-print my address label on the envelope? I will let the guests handwrite their own return address. Sorry again for the mix up!

I’d just use the matching labels. It’s easy!

You can do whatever is easiest or whatever you like best! We printed addresses directly on all of the envelopes (both for the invitations and for the RSVPs) because that was easiest for us.
