My advice to you is to set your computer printer to print envelopes. Find a nice font that you really like, then use it. That’s how we’re doing it. I have nice handwriting, but I don’t know how to do calligraphy, and I want them to look really nice. Computers and printers really make things look nice if you put in a little time and money for the ink and settings.

By the time you buy the paper and the ink, go to walmart and you can buy 50 envelops that are “invitation”" envelopes for under $6.00 Hope I’ve helped :) Good luck :)

Use your computer printer to print on the envelopes or print onto sticky labels and put onto the envelopes.
There are many designs available for labels so that they don’t look tacky
OR – get someone who does have nice handwriting and give them a bottle of wine in return for doing the envelopes. Make suere that the envelopes are written up first!

Some etiquette is that its tacky to use labels or not to hand write your invitations, hand written gives them a more personal touch.

You can use a printer and use a script font which will make them look nicer but its still not hand writing them and people will be able to tell. However, I can guarantee you not that many people will even care. I have received invites that the envelopes were printed with a printer or on a label and I never looked down on or thought less of them because of it.

If anything else have your bridesmaids, sister, niece, mom or other to help you. My brothers wife has terrible handwriting and mine is nice, I did their envelopes and didn’t have a problem helping out.

Take a caligrapy class, it is relatively simple and looks great!!!
