Hi, loves! Emma here and we’re kicking off this beautiful Tuesday morning with a new Ask Emmaline question. If you are wondering how to make your wedding invitations look their very best, the answer is simple: calligraphy envelopes! Today we’re talking about where to get calligraphy envelopes for your invites that look beautiful (and don’t cost an arm and a leg). Bride-to-be Monica sent us an email last week with the following question on where to get calligraphy for wedding invitations. She writes,
“Hi Emmaline, I ordered my invitations but I’m stuck on the addressing, as my handwriting isn’t very good and I want to get calligraphy done. Do you have any suggestions? I already spent a huge part of my budget on invitations so something under $1 each is ideal. Thanks in advance.”
Great question, Monica! Calligraphy envelopes are often overlooked on wedding invitations, as couples presume it is too expensive. However, if you know where to look for quality calligraphy envelopes at a reasonable price, you can get that look of beautifully hand-lettered invites AND stay on-budget.
One place we recommend for calligraphy wedding envelopes — based on reviews, beautiful hand-lettering, and price — is Rachel of Words of Love Invites. You can get calligraphy envelopes for wedding invitations for 0.40 each. That’s within your budget (of under $1 each) and will look fantastic.
How to Get Calligraphy Envelopes
So, how does the calligraphy service work? That’s easy! You choose your preferred color envelopes (typically white, black, or kraft brown) and Rachel will hand address all the envelopes for your wedding and mail them to you. Then you will assemble your invitations, add postage, mail your wedding invitations as usual. You can choose two styles, as you can see on the examples below. If there’s a color or size you need, just ask — she is happy to work with custom orders.
If you have questions on the calligraphy before you buy, you can message her here.
Calligraphy on your wedding invitations looks so pretty and give them a clean, cohesive look.
When recommending artists to you, we always look to reviews from past clients. One bride, Amber, made a comment on her wedding invitation calligraphy: “I received 10 compliments about how cute these envelopes turned out, just within the first few days of sending out my invitations!” Who doesn’t love that?
