How did you address your invites??

Did you hand write them all?


Print them off the computer?


Mailing labels?


Some other way that I've missed?


Here's my situation-- Wedding is June 26th. I want my invites to go out asap. My mom insisted on a May 15th response date. I know I know... I caved and should have left June 1. Now I'm panicing trying to get them sent out. 


My mom wants all her invites to be done in calligraphy, done. My Aunt has them and is doing them. I am doing the rest.... DIY calligraphy. I printed the envelopes in a really light grey and went over them with a black pen. Is this tacky? 


Thanks ladies for you input!

I hand wrote all the guests addresses in a nice red calligraphy pen from the craft store and I stamped our address with a stamp I had made on etsy.

I printed them on clear labels I got at office depot... it made the process sooo much faster.  And the labels I bought were avery and you just downloan the template on their site and it brings up a template in word for you to put the addresses in.

we also used a printer and address labels. We used Monotype Corsiva for the font so it was readable and scripty. It was so much easier than trying to do the calligraphy myself.

I printed mine with my laser printer using the AdineKirenberg font.  It's a nice calligraphy font that's actually still legible.  Plus, since I am all about just gettin 'er dunn, I knew printing them would be the fastest way.  :)


BTW, yay!  You're my date twin!

Yep, ditto lizzie. I printed those with my printer on the envelope. We searched online for the best calligraphy font that's still legible and not too swirly. =)


We addressed probably 175 invites in 2-3 hours.

I hand-wrote all of mine in cursive. It was soooooooo time consuming, but I wanted them hand written, and I think they turned out beautiful.


I think, if you are running each one through your printer, just print it in black and be done with it! I don't think there's a need to go over it in pen after--that sounds like a lot of work. Good luck! Get those puppies done! :o)

used large clear labels with nice font and they came out just fine. i'm pleased with the result eventhough the eticate states we should get a caligrapher or handwrite each. i don't think so

White mailing labels. I used the Avery online design studio to pretty them up a bit.

One of my bridesmaids and I made an evening of writing out invites. Yes they have different handwriting but no one's going to compare! I hope! =D


We were lucky becuase both parents didn't get us a guest list/address list in time so all we did was give them the blank invites and had them deal with it on their own. That cut down on our work.

I did the clear labels for both envelopes. I'm all done with the RSVP envelope labels now I have to work on the outer envelopes:( But, it shouldn't take long at all because I downloaded the Avery template and they print out perfectly!
