The Art of Calligraphy

I adore anything handwritten – chalkboards, notes, signs, menus, place holders etc. In my household, a handwritten envelope received always gets opened first. Love notes left on the counter score big points. And toddler written notes are cherished. You know someone took the time to write it just for you and it’s personal. But let’s take it to another level. Calligraphy. On a note or an envelope, it instantly sets the mood of romance, love… emotion. Its dramatic – someone has artistically created every stroke. Calligraphy is a mood changer and here are a variety of styles and ideas you can use for your big day!

How fabulous are these table numbers and thank you tags? The script even has a cool name, Harlow Elise! These are created by NicHance Designs and definitely have an urban edge for the modern wedding.

Today’s calligraphy styles can also be whimsical and modern. I love how these invites from A Charming Occasion combine different font styles together.

Don’t you just love the beautiful script against the chocolate envelope? Oh, and this “save the date,” would take prime real estate on my cork board never to see the fate of the recycle bin! The envelope and card are by Inkblot Calligraphy.
