Addressing invitations

I love doing calligraphy and I will probably prefer to address my invitations by hand as dictated by formal protocol. Our wedding is going to be a formal event and this will definitely add a special touch to our invites. I’m also considering using cute labels that seem to the trend right now. I’ll have to wait and see how hectic things get when we send out our invitations 3 to 4 months before the wedding.

I’ve been doing some research on how envelopes should be addressed and the following links should be helpful. They cover everything from the use of double vs. single envelopes to how to address invitations to family members, to people with titles and even to same sex couples.
