{Wedding Details} Calligraphy

15 Feb

I’ve always admired the beautiful, handwritten script of wedding invitations. Recently, I’ve begun an awesome community ed course called Basic Calligraphy. I’ve learned so much already, including that calligraphy is not about coming in with good handwriting, it’s another form of drawing. It’s like starting kindergarten again, learning to hold your pencil and then pen correctly, tracing the letter forms to learn muscle memory, and practicing.

Although my script is far from the likes of what is seen on Style Me Pretty or others, it is a stepping stone. I continue to be inspired by beautiful script and the artistic talent of those who make it. Calligraphy is truly an art form.

Calligraphy is a wonderful way to incorporate a handmade feeling into your wedding day. Whether it be the invitations, programs, or escort cards, calligraphy is one detail that is often overlooked by those planning in favor of (gasp!) printed alternatives. I will argue that the details make all the difference, and this is one detail that I can’t get enough of.
