Avoid using address labels: Try not to, you really don't want your wedding invitations to look like a corporate mailer. There are several ways to address your invitations without turning them into something that looks like an office mass mailing. Lion in the Sun offers hand calligraphy as well as computer_printed calligraphy services. But my best suggestion is to hand write them yourself or consider asking someone in your family or your bridal party to address the envelopes for you. You can always order extra envelopes just in case, and who doesn't love to see a hand_addressed envelope waiting for them in their mailbox? It feels really personal.
It's very important to know how many guests will be attending your wedding, so make sure to leave enough time to get back those RSVP cards early. A standard rule of thumb is to order 10% more extra envelopes than you think you may need. This will come in handy if your calligrapher accidentally makes a mistake while addressing the invitations. Save a few extra invitations to keep as mementos for yourself and close relatives.
