Hello, loves! Today we’re talking about wedding calligraphy – the fanciful art of writing – which can be applied across your entire wedding spectrum. Hiring a wedding calligrapher may sound like a luxury request, but it can be affordable AND make a world of a difference in the overall look and quality of your wedding. I am a self-proclaimed handwriting nerd, which all began when my mom saw my hurried handwriting in 3rd grade, sat me down at her desk, and taught me to write more legibly. Ever since, I’ve developed a knack for pretty writing, calligraphy, and design, realizing that taking a little extra time and patience really does go a long way. If you need someone to give you a helping hand and turn your wedding stationery into works of art, we’re here to help! We’ve located the top twelve wedding calligraphy ideas by handmade artisans who are skilled in the craft and ready to create a personalized suite for your big day. Read on to be inspired…
