Calligraphy

I know it's WAY early in the planning process to be thinking about smaller details like calligraphy...I should probably come up with a guest list and invitations first...but after seeing my awful handwriting on the thank you notes I'm doing for the engagement party gifts I can't help it. Calligraphy is one of those weddings items that I always considered to be a luxury and something that you can easily fore go to help with the wedding budget, after all how many people really look at the handwriting on the mail they receive?? Then again if we are going to spend X amount of money on nice invitations it seems a shame to take away from the overall appearance with bad handwriting.

Oh and the option of having the fiance hand address the envelopes...well let's just say I want the postal carrier to be able to at least read the addresses on the envelopes :-) So now I might be adding "search for affordable calligraphy" on my to-do list.

My sister did my calligraphy. She doesn't do it very formal, but it was good enough. I don't care about the handwriting, but I will say I don't like it when it's not hand-written. I just think there's something impersonal about typed labels.

Calligraphy is one of those things we simply could not splurge on. So I'm practicing now... then writing them myself. Printing from a computer wasn't even an option!
