But they don't.
I spent a few hours last night addressing invitations. I'm still only about halfway done.
I thought I had good pennmanship. In fact, I have been paid by friends to address their wedding invitations! Maybe I'm just pickier when it comes to my own. Or maybe I have been infected by all the wedding-ness out there on the internet that tells me I must have invitations addressed like above.
But mine will be in my own handwriting. (Personal touch is good, right?) My apologies to my family who will receive my earliest attempts, complete with slanted and off-centered writing. I promise I got better the more I did. Unfortunately, the best written invitations will go to the people who probably care the least. Sigh.
But I did figure out what to use on those gold inner envelopes - a lighter gold marker! I have decided the one I got is too thick (I wrote half of the inner envelopes in black because of that - which actually did show up by the way), but I'm going to be on the hunt for a thinner gold marker today. And hopefully will be finished with addressing those invitations tonight.
How did you go about addressing your invitations?
