While hand-canceling is free, check with your local post office first to make sure that it has the hand stamp. And keep in mind that while most post offices try to keep hand-canceled mail separate from regular mail, there's no absolute guarantee that your invitations won't go through the processing machines. To ensure they don't, you can pay a non-machinable fee to have them hand-processed—it will guarantee that your mail will be sorted by hand.
Have a Pro Address Your Envelopes: When you order your invitations, see if you can take the envelopes home immediately (or as soon as possible). That way, if you're having someone other than your stationer (say, a calligrapher) print the return addresses on your envelopes (most stationers print the return addresses for little or no charge; it's often even included in the suite's price), they can get a head start. While you don't have to hire a calligrapher to address your envelopes, we highly recommend it—it looks beautiful and makes an elegant first impression. Traditionally, addresses are handwritten, so unless you have impeccable handwriting, it's best to leave the envelopes to a pro.
If you plan to do them yourselves, tackle the project in a few sittings to avoid sloppiness or mistakes. While using printed labels is an easy (and affordable) option, handwriting each address is not only more formal, it's also more personal. It shows your guests that you want them to be at your wedding so much that you took the time to handwrite (or have a calligrapher hand-letter) their name and address on the envelope. But if your penmanship is more like chicken scratch and you don't have the budget for a calligrapher, you can print the addresses from your computer using digital calligraphy software.
The engagement marks the beginning of the long and epic saga of your life, that is, the big fat Indian wedding. An engagement is the preparation of the red thread of fate, anointing it with the labour of ceremony and love, which would bind the partners forever. For an engagement party, there is an utmost requirement for an engagement invitation. It is a way to convey the message of someone getting hitched and also formally requests a personfamily (that it is entitled to), to attend the engagement ceremony. There are no rules to how this should be done; whatever makes you happy is the best way to conduct it.
