    My invitations haven’t been mailed, but I will be sending them three months before the wedding

    My option isn’t on there – I hand wrote the addresses without practicing and it looked just fine, I normally have pretty nice handwriting.

    I will be sending them out two months before the wedding (closer to three for international ones) with an RSVP date one month before our wedding.

    My friend/BM is a graphic designer and she’s designing my invitations online. We will probably have the addresses printed on labels, honestly. (in nice font, high quality labels, etc.)

    I have terrible handwriting and I would never expect anyone to hand write 200+ addresses AND return addresses no matter how nice their handwriting was! lol

    Oh and we will probably be mailing them in . . . June/July for the wedding in September.

    I addressed them. I have nice handwriting and just added some extra flourish to it as I was writing. No practice. I have to say I was surprised I enjoyed addressing them. I am not one who minds labels or printed envelopes, but when they were all done, I did find I thought the handwriting added a nice personal touch. 

    I also handwrote the return address on the back, although I had planned to print it. Then my printer decided it hated envelopes, and I was just like, “Screw this, I am writing them.”

    I just mailed them today!!!!!!!!!! (!!!!!)

    So about 11 weeks out. 100% of our guests are out of town. If everyone was local I would have sent them closer to 8-9 weeks. Plus postage goes up soon and I was using amount stamps, not forever stamps.
