    I just received my wedding invitations and the envelopes are black. How am I suppose to address them? I think putting a white label will look tacky...help!!

      Use silver (or gold) sharpie markers! They show up very well on dark envelopes and at $2.50 each they will probably cost less than the labels would.

      Only catch is that you'll have to hand-write them. But they will look better than using labels.

      Happily married since 2008

        Yes, I say use silver or gold fine tipped paint pens. They sell them at any craft store. I used gold on chocolate brown envelopes for my Christmas cards. Good luck girl

                  Another option, if you have a lot of invites : you can design some labels on word, and use mail merge to create all your labels. If you have never used this function, don't freak out it's very easy. If you have your list of people on excel or word, you need to separate their name, first line of address, second line, city+zip in different columns (I had to domore because I have European guests, but word even deals with the address format so you see - I just had to separate city and zip).

                  Then you can design labels with a background that is not white - can be any color, the colors of your wedding... can be pics or drawing, or just a background in color... it will print out on white labels that will not be white any longer ! You can even create black labels ! I did this for our labels - they are with bamboo trees in the background, so they are all tropical forest green. It worked very well. I can post templates when I'm back home (I've been in the office all wek-end ! Books closing period )
