save-the-dates

Do any of you know if there is any rule on hand-written names and addresses on save-the-date envelopes? I know you are never supposed to use labels on wedding invites but what about all of the other mailings?Thanks so much!

    I don't know about etiquette for save the dates, but I personally don't like the look of labels on any wedding related envelope.I think it would be best to print the names and addresses directly on to the save the date envelopes if you don't want to write them out.

    I used wrap around labels on my save-the-dates.

    I bought calligraphy pens at Michael's and just wrote the names in script.  It was actually kind of fun.  For my rehearsal dinner invites, I also wrote the names on the envelopes.  For the actual invitations, we used something called icings which are/are not labels but were printed by the invitation company (Carlton Craft).

    We printed directly on the envelope.  If you use mail merge with something like publisher or word, it is really easy!

    I actually used clear labels with a fancy font and they turned out nice. We are sending out postcards for our STDs so they are not that formal and I thought printing labels would be fine. We will do formal writing when we do the invites.

    I think labels on save the dates would be fine - most of the ones I've gotten aren't really fancy, just cute and fun. I think it depends on the vibe you're wanting to send to your guests.
