i sent post cards so i didn’t need return labels… I used clear avery labels printed on my home printer for the recipient’s address

why are labels a NO NO?

We are doing labels. I look at it this way–STDs are kind of new to the wedding world and not something you have to do, so they can be more informal, if still done nice enough. I will be hand-addressing the actual invites, but we labeled the Save-The-Date Cards. Go for it!

@anr91011: Since I’m breaking every “rule” there is, I’m using labels for everything.  STD’s and invites.  (What? I’m lazy!)

Etiquette says that the addresses should be hand written.  Though some do address them using a printer.  

Personally, I think it’s easier to print up the labels than deal with loading envelopes into a printer and hoping it all prints correctly.

I’m not a September girl but I sent out my Save-The-Date Cards with address labels and no one got bent out of shape 🙂

I printed up the envelopes on our printer. I put my guest list in excel and did a mail merge in word, All I had to do was feed the envelopes into the printer and it was all set. No label or anything. I have heard that labels are a big no no. We do have labels for our invitations, but it’s part of the invitation suite that we bought from Michael’s so I guess maybe labels aren’t a big no no after all? They are built into the look of the suite though so that may be the difference.

Oh that’s silly!  I see plenty of bee’s using labels, especially the fun wrap around ones for there invites… I’d never think twice about getting a wedding invite with a label…

Do what you think looks best… You could always do a clear label 🙂
