I'm sending out my STD's next week and my bridesmaid said that I should not use adhesive labels (the kind you just put in your printer and print off). She said it was better to write the addresses or hire a calligrapher. What do you guys think? How much does a calligrapher cost to do addresses?

These are just your STD...the I don't think they have to be that formal. Unless you just want to do that of course. I got clear labels and found a nice font and printed my invitation labels that way...and didn't have a problem with doing it that way at all :)

I had my invitations printed up by the company that did them, and for my pre-travel brochure I ran the envelopes through my printer. Not technically the ``right`` way to do it but it saved me tons of time and hassle. Plus this way no one had to be subjected to my crappy handwriting. I think labels are fine- plus they can be really pretty if you put a little picture on them or something. I really don`t see it being a big deal in this day and age- but if you really want to use a calligrapher you can find some who are pretty reasonable on Etsy. I used Dancing Pen from Etsy for my placecards and she`s great to work with and not too expensive.

I wouldn't use a calligrapher for your STDs. Labels are just fine. You can always print the addresses right on them if you aren't sure about the labels. That is what I did with my RSVP envelopes. I just used a nice font and printed them.

Labels are fine for the STD. I used a calligraphor for my invite though, I was lucky enough to find someone by me who did it by hand,... and didn't charge me! That was a good day!

For my STDs, I just wrote the addresses on the envelopes as neatly as I could. However, I am printing labels for my invitations so that they look crisp. I can't do calligraphy, so I figured that would be best. I don't think that there is really any "wrong" way to do things nowadays.

I did "regular printer labels" with a nice font for my STDs and my invitations.

It's all a personal preference. I don't know how many people would actually look at the envelope & say "gee...she didn't even handwrite these" - that just seems silly to me! lol

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
