I printed my addresses, but looking back on it I wish I would have hand written them. If your handwriting is the least bit decent, I would handwrite them. It adds such a personal touch. They have cute colored pens you can use to add some color to your white envelopes. 🙂 Labels, although easiest, are my personal least favorite.

I Think the wrap around labels (templates on many blogs and on Martha’s website) look really cute.

I don’t have beautiful script, so that’s the route I’m going for the Save-The-Date Cards. 🙂

@heather5743: I was just discussing this with my wedding planner yesterday. She said if you are going to handwrite either invest in having a professional do caligraphy (or similar in quality) or make sure that your own writing is nice enough (mine isn’t!).

Also, if you do print the information onto the envelopes she suggested either using clear labels or printing the information directly onto the labels as both looks a bit nicer (white labels are too obvious).

I am still debating on what I want to do but leaning towards caligraphy.

I hand addressed all of mine with the wretched scrawl of a 12 year old child.  Maybe do labels?  little colored ones?  It seems like that would be the easiest thing to do, imo
