all addressing can be done via label.  


any ettiquette that you’d stick too 100% about labels would say never to do them


but they save time and sanity

I used labels for both save the dates and invites.. but we aren’t crazy for etiquette, only the big stuff.

Traditional etiquette is that the proper way to ask someone to “save the date”, is to write them a personal hand-written note informing them of your engagement and any details about your planned wedding that they need to know ahead of time. A personal individual note is charming: it makes the reader feel that they are truly special to you. A pre-printed mass mailing is less charming: to sticklers for traditional manners it can seem presumptuous, as if you feel you have a right to tell people how to plan their vacation time.

The reason that labels are scorned for mailing social correspondence, is that they seem commercialized and impersonal compared to your own very personal hand-writing. If you have already decided to go the pre-printed mass-mailout route for the note itself, then it seems a little silly to worry about whether or not the envelope is hand-addressed! At that point, there’s no reason NOT to use labels.
