    I personally wouldn’t care as long as it arrived. But for some it might depend on the label, are you planning generic white labels or something coordinating with the save-the-dates and invites? A plain white office depot label on a fancy envelope might look out of place, I wouln’t go so far as to say tacky, just esthetically out of place.

    Most Save-The-Date Cards I recieve have mailing labels

    We printed ours with a nice script font directly on the envelope.  I think as long as it looks nice, it doesn’t matter if it’s written by hand or some modern technology.  But I think those free labels you get in the mail probably are not very fancy.  πŸ˜‰

    I’m using a label but I would have hand written too. I don’t think it really matters πŸ™‚

    I am very traditional. I believe correspondence — especially wedding correspondence — should always be hand addressed. I hired a top-notch calligrapher for my wedding, and she was SOOO amazing that some people actually thought it was done by a laser printer!! Oh, the irony! πŸ™‚

    for our STD’s we used address labels.   For our invites; I have hired a calligragher.

    I know I’m way early on my planning, but I adore stationary, and found Save-The-Date Cards online that I loved, so I ordered them.  I actually made my envelopes for my STD’s, which I have dutifully stashed in a box until October.  

    I was actually playing around with it today, and I got gold vellum to print on for my addresses, using a calligraphy type font, and then I am going to attach those as labels on my envelopes.  I wish I could hand-address them, but I can’t spring for a calligrapher, and my handwriting is atrocious.

    @starfish0116:  I agree that you probably don’t need to have the calligrapher address the Save-The-Date Cards. Your Save-The-Date Cards sound as if they’ll be great, by the way! I actually did not have Save-The-Date Cards, so I didn’t have to worry about this, but, if I had, I probably would have just addressed them myself, as I did with the rehearsal dinner invitations. I’m sure your coordinating labels will be very attractive, and only a few people — if any — will even think twice about it.

    I think I handwrote them… But not calligraphy or anything! πŸ™‚

    I wouldn’t worry too much about handwriting STD’s – they are by nature less formal and it sounds like you have done an amazing job with them.

    I’d print labels in a nice calligraphy like font, if you’re torn between the two.
