How to Calligraph: Kits & Workshops

Posted March 11, 2014 | 0 Comments

Brides: have you wondered how to calligraph? Would you like to tackle do-it-yourself projects with pretty writing, but your penmanship could use a little work? Today’s feature is for you! I was talking to a friend recently about the lost art of letter writing. Email and text messages have stripped away some of the heartfelt, personal snail mail letters that used to fill mailboxes with happiness (and, snail mail is pretty much one of the greatest things ever). One of the things I’ve always wanted to learn is how to do calligraphy, known as “the art of making beautiful handwriting”. For weddings, you can use calligraphy on your invitations, wedding programs, menus, escort cards, place cards, signage… there are so many places for pretty penmanship! Read on to find out how you can learn how to calligraph in your hometown with a workshop or at home with an awesome new starter kit…

Meredith and Georg’s marvelous Inn at Penn wedding is one that you won’t want to miss! The Inn at Penn in downtown Philadelphia offered a romantic and classic setting. Meredith and Georg are both big Disney fans. They incorporated some of those Disney elements into their personal wedding items and even went there for their honeymoon. Some neat DIY details done by the couple include record theme table numbers, favors, and a card station. One intriguing aspect of their wedding was the delivery of the wedding rings.

Posted March 5, 2014 | 27 Comments

Ready for a new wedding giveaway? You’ll love today’s guest book puzzle giveaway for your wedding! What is a guest book puzzle, you ask? Great question: a guest book puzzle is a puzzle created from a favorite photo of yours (like an engagement photo) turned into a 16×20 puzzle. Instead of displaying the puzzle assembled at your wedding, you place the puzzle pieces on a table and guests sign their names on the back. After the wedding, the two of you will put the puzzle together as you read the names (and well wishes) from guests. We’re giving away one custom 16×20 guest book puzzle by The Missing Piece Puzzle Company to a lucky Emmaline Bride reader this week… will it be you?
