Do you hear that?
Is that the sound of wedding fairies singing?
Because I finally have an invitation design! I still need to add the finishing touches and get it to the printers ASAP but at least now I have a plan.
Now that the design plan is in place, I've been thinking up ways to address these bad boys.
Option 1: Calligraphy
I have a thing for slanted formal calligraphy. Too bad my handwriting mimics that of a 10 year old and there isn't room in the invitation budget for a pro.
Option 2: DIY or Faux Calligraphy
I don't have the courage to teach myself calligraphy, but many a bee have outlined how to fake your way to gorgeous calligraphy by first printing the addresses from your printer, then going over them with ink.
Option 3: Home Printer
Hardcore traditionalists will tell you that the only proper way to address a wedding invitation is to hand write it, but I'm not buying it. I've received many invitations that were printed via a home printer and they looked great. With all the great fonts out there, this can be a cheap, easy, and stylish option.
Option 4: Wraparound Labels
I love the way the wraparound labels on our Save the Dates turned out, but I think I may be looking for something different for our invitation suite—or as I like to call it, our invitation sweet!
Option 5: Mailing Labels
Simple square or rectangular mailing labels look great on envelopes of all shapes and sizes.
Circular labels, paired with handwritten or home-printed addresses are high on my list. Mrs. Seashell made up some amazing round labels when she ran out of her gorgeous wraparound labels.
Or I could go the route of Miss Panther, and use an awesome custom shape to address the invites.
Am I missing any other addressing options? How did you address your invitations?
