Addressing Invitations: Clear Labels or Hand write
Posted 02 May 2008 - 12:24 PM
It it almost time for me to send out my invitations. I dread the idea of handwriting them out, though i know it may be necessary. Personally, i don't feel it is tacky to use a clear label, but now, I am second guessing myself.
I was thinking about doing one of the three:
1. using clear labels with a nice font,
2. laser printing the addresses directly on the envelopes
3. Hand writing them myself or getting a professional calligrapher
Any other suggestions for the envelopes?

We had 24 people attend our wedding in Las Caletas, Mexico on May 24th, 2009!
We all stayed at The Marriott in P.V., and Honeymooned at The Royal Plantation in Ochos Rios, Jamaica!

It's expensive to hire a calligrapher. I just bought some $2.50 calligraphy markers & me & a couple of friends did all of mine. We followed a guide on the internet. it really wasn't hard & we made it fun.
I only did 1 envelope (no inner envelope). I had about 75 invites.
I made address labels that matched my invites for my return address. You can see my envelopes on my BDW blog linked below.
I do feel like hand written gives it a personal touch. It was much easier than I expected, but then I only had 75.

I think i will go with printing them directly on the envelopes. Besides, that is what i did for my STDs and everyone thought they were a hit.
I figured getting calligraphy was too formal. The vibe of my wedding very tropical modern chic --- clean lines, no foo-foo.
