Addressing your envelope. Sigh. Are you dreading this task for your wedding invitations? Or maybe you completely forgot about it? Perhaps you’ve thought ahead and know you’re going to use a calligrapher (like Nikki from Made by Meer whose gorgeous work is featured below) to address the envelopes for you, or I’ll be printing the addresses for you.
Well, no matter what route you decide to go, before you get started you’re going to need to gather the addresses for everyone on your guest list. That means getting on the phone, digging out your address book, or searching for the Christmas card mailing list you put together six years ago and trying to remember who has moved in the last few years.
Sounds miserable, right? Well it doesn’t have to be! Enter Postable – it’s a website that allows you to collect addresses from your family and friends just by sharing a link (email it, text it, post it on Facebook – however you like). It stores the addresses for you – all for free! Once you’ve collected all your addresses, you can easily export an Excel spreadsheet to share with your stationer.
Head over to the Postable website today and sign up. Then share that link with everyone! I don’t care how far off your wedding is, the sooner you get started on addresses for your guest list, the better. Trust me – it will take longer than you think, and you don’t want to be scrambling at the last minute trying to figure it out.
No, this isn’t a sponsored post – I just love Postable!
