Some of you girls are being quite rude if you ask me. Megan didn't ask for your opinion about using the labels; she asked for your opinion about what font she should use. And even if you want to give your opinion about what you consider 'tradition' or 'elegant' or 'commercial mail', you should say it as your opinion and not in a way that makes it sound like a concrete fact or rule that should never ever ever be broken. Maybe this is in your own wedding planning etiquette book, but not all of us have the time or money or talent to handwrite addresses on the envelope or print directly on the envelope or hire a calligrapher, etc. MeganBM - I would check out Lucida Calligraphy Bold font for your labels!Posted by daisy28426
Maybe your opinion of proper etiquette is to not use labels on envelopes, but that certainly does not make it a rule or a fact. It may be the way you think it customarily should be done, but etiquette changes from person to person and in different places of the country and/or world. The way you traditionally do things may not be the way someone else does the same thing, so just because you deem it to be polite and correct doesn't make it a fact or rule.Posted by daisy28426
By someone even getting an invite- ( Everyone wants to be invited to a wedding) especially since it is a first for the grroms side- It feels personal and special to them that they are getting invited, because a professional doesnt know who you want at your wedding- only you do.
In Response to Re: What Font to use for mailing address labels? : Etiquette dosn't change over the years. People's interpretation and their level of desire to follow etiquette changes. You are mistaken. You do not use labels to print on your wedding invitations. That is not an opinion. It comes down to whether or not you have the time, energy or patience to do it. Choosing to print and affix labels on your invitations is not evolving etiquette. It is lazy. I have horrible handwriting, but I still wrote adresses on the outer envelope of every one of my invites. There are some things you don't find short cuts to, and this is one of them.Posted by vsgal
