One of the most beautiful ways to set your invitation apart and create an immediate visual impact for your guests is with calligraphy. This artful writing is a part of every culture and can now be apart of your own wedding story. Today’s calligraphy is not the antiquated look that you have seen at the Renaissance Fair, but has a modern twist, a bit of whimsy and romance. Simply put, your chosen calligraphy style can be whatever you want it to be.
Laura Hooper has become known as the calligraphy resource in the wedding industry with her innovative styles and maps:
Another great calligrapher is Lisa of Pen and Ink Calligraphy. Her work is fun, fresh and stunning!
The Calligraphy Lady is another fabulous artist who creates the most astounding work. Her work has been featured in almost all of the bridal magazines as well as a few TV shows.
The Calligraphy Lady also creates hand written invitations, some with each guest’s name on them (featured in last invitation) as well as monograms and logos.
I love the sweet, contemporary look of the calligraphy by Swoon Over It:
There are so many styles—fun, whimsical, elegant, regal, and casual. You are not just limited to envelopes with your calligraphy???add these special details to your escort cards, place cards, menus, favors, and programs.
