If you don’t have the nicest handwriting, but you want your invites to look good, you’ve probably wondered where to get wedding invitations addressed.
I wondered the same before, but there used to be only two options for how to get wedding invitations addressed. You either did it yourself, or you hired a calligrapher (someone who addresses your invitations by hand in beautiful penmanship) to do it for you. This is doable and great if you have the patience and penmanship to make it happen.
However, it can be tough if your handwriting isn’t the best, you don’t want to spend time hand-writing 100+ addresses in cursive, and you don’t know a calligrapher or you don’t want the hassle of finding one.
Plus, how much does does that even cost? And how do you get the invitations to your calligrapher to address them, and how long does it take to get the envelopes ready to mail them out?
You are on a time schedule, after all.
So, you think of the next best thing: wedding address labels. But unfortunately, labels simply aren’t formal enough. Proper wedding etiquette dictates that outer envelopes for weddings should be addressed formally and NOT with the use of a peel-and-stick label.
NOTE: Address labels ARE great for bridal shower invitations, engagement party invites, and thank you cards. However, labels are not recommended for addressing wedding invitations if you wish to follow proper protocol.
OK, so you’re not crazy about addressing invitations yourself, you don’t have time to hire a calligrapher, and you can’t use address labels.
Where is the best place to get wedding invitations addressed? Let’s discuss it.

Customize Your Invitation Addressing
When you’re ready to get invitations addressed, you can choose the style and theme that complements your style beautifully.
