Haha, that link is hilarious!

I am writing all my addresses by hand, so hopefully that is enough to distinguish it from junk mail!

I’ve actually worried about this in the past! Either the invite just being accidentally tossed, or it getting lost in the mail completely.

That settles it! I’m getting a caligrapher or handwriting them myself!

Wow. This is why I go through the mail, not Fiance. 😉 Just kidding. We hand-wrote ours. Okay, not “we.” My Mom, in her amazing handwriting, hand wrote my invitations. Lol. She let me write the return address on the back. 🙂

I have heard of this happening too! Actually I am ashamed to say it… I did it once! In my defense it was a very casual invitation, computer label address, not bulky or anything etc. I thought it was an ad because the bride decorated it with a sticker that made me think of my insurance agency… long story short my sister saw me do it and saved the day!

Moral of the story, handwrite your addresses whenever possible.

No matter what you do to make it look “official” there will always be the doofy husbands, etc that may mistake it. Or they may fall in a catalog and get recycled without ever being seen.

You just deal with it. If you dont hear from them for an RSVP, then you follow up to ensure something didnt happen to the invite.
