I can almost guarantee that no one will notice. They’ll be all like “hey, mail for me” RIIIPPPPP and chuck the envelope in the garbage.

Not sure if that second part made you feel any better either ๐Ÿ™‚

LOL. Good one.

Seriously, no one cares. And I’m not just saying that because you want people to say it, I’m saying it because the vast majority of recipients don’t even know what the word “gradation” means. An envelope gets ripped open sloppily and thrown in the trash. I’d feel worse about spending money on calligraphy for envelopes that go immediately in the garbage than I would about the gradation of the ink.

I’m sure they look great!  Your guests probably won’t even notice ๐Ÿ™‚

Really, even if they happen to notice it, it will cross their mind for like 2 seconds and they won’t even think about it again.  It’s not a big deal.  I had metallic envelopes and I was kind of annoyed how the ink got smeared after going through the machine at the post office (they told me there was no way around this)…but then I realized it’s such a small issue in the whole scheme of things.

No one cares…they won’t notice.  If anything they will say “oh look….handwritten calligraphy” and thats about it.

As long as I can see the date, time and place…thats all that matters.  

Sit back, relax, no one is going to speak ill about you or your invites ๐Ÿ™‚

No one cares. Save a nice one for yourself and the rest I guarantee will go into landfills or preferably recycling.

I think it will be absolutely fine! Better than fine, because I’m sure the calligraphy is gorgeous! I agree with your Fiance that it shows the extra effort that went into them, they don’t look like they just came off of a printer. Plus, tons of people don’t even notice the little details that we brides stay up at night thinking about! They just want to rip the invite open and see what’s inside!

Don’t stress!

No one will notice at all.  I had a similar issue where I was dumb and didn’t have our invitation weighed prior to buying the stamps, so I just got 44 cent stamps.  When we went to mail them, they needed an additional 17 cents and the only 17 cent stamp made in the world had a blue ram on it.  It didn’t go well with the Love pink lily stamp I had on there, but it was what we had to do.  I asked a couple of people if they noticed it because I was stressing and no one even saw it.  I think we tend to stress over the little things, but after it’s all said and done, we will realize that a lot of those little things were really only bothering us and no one else even noticed that there was an issue.

No one will care – honestly.  I’m not saying that a handful won’t notice -but most people that WOULD notice will be so excited to OPEN and look at the invite – that they wouldn’t give it a second thought.

I agree with the board. If I got your invite I would totally notice the handwritten calligraphy and the pretty metallic envelope… I probably won’t even notice the color gradation of the writing though. ๐Ÿ™‚
