    For a wedding invitation it should be on the back flap of the outer envelope. Or a wrap around label looks nice too, but I had one friend who had a horrible experience with the post office with wrap around labels.

    I did the back flap.  Really, you know someone who had trouble??  Jeepers, why can’t anything just be easy?!?!

    My designer actually is putting our across the bottom of the back of the envelope.  Hopefully we don’t have any issues!

    On the back. on the flap. I used square envelopes and it was way too crowded on the front with them in the left hand corner. I think it made it look more “wedding like” as well.

    I put mine on the back but the most often I have seen is putting it in the normal spot on the front.

    I put them on the normal spot before I knew any better. Then I heard that is poor etiquette. I thought about caring for about 5 seconds and then moved on with my life lol.

    Ours are getting printed on the back flap at the printers suggestion.  I like that look and am excited to see how they turn out!

    I knew we had to write them on the back flap but I was too lazy, Darling Husband couldn’t care less about etiquette and just wanted to be done with writing them…So we took the completely lazy route and didn’t put a return address at all, LOL. They all got to their recipients and we received RSVP’s from everyone so all was well. I really don’t care about invitation etiquette things since I never knew about these rules before joining WeddingBee. I can guarantee that 90% of our guests don’t know either and the rest probably don’t care.

    We put the return address on the back flap as well, as we are in France, it is customary here to do it this way. I think it’s nicer too, because otherwise the front of the envelope would look too busy (guest’s address with stamps + return address). This is why, esthetically I think it’s better to have the return address on the back of the envelope (whether it’s on the flap or on the wrap-around sticker). You can check out my return address printed on the envelope here.

    We put ours on the normal way since the back of our pocketfolds had a circle sticker holding them together, otherwise I would have put them on the back flap. Go with the back flap..simple and neat!

    We put our return lables on the back flap for our save the dates because they were so small. We’re going to do the same for the invites. I like how it looks better that way.
