Calligraphy is the art of beautiful writing.
You can add this beauty in many different ways, from simple to elaborate. Some may think of calligraphy as a major expense but it all depends on what you want and how you want it. A lot of calligraphy is achieved by dipping the pen in the ink creating beautiful lettering that is not your everyday writing style and is time consuming. You may also achieve class, style and elegance, by having a calligrapher add the "special touches" to various aspects of your Wedding by using gel pens, pencils, or just a regular ink pen.
There are many different ways to get the look and style that you want for your wedding. Letters can be drawn or colored to achieve the look and style you want, the beauty you deserve, and fit your budget. When you have a calligrapher sit down to address your invitations for example, you should know consistency is important, no 2 envelopes will be EXACTLY the same. This is why each one is a unique piece of art that will be sure to impress. If you are looking for every thing to be EXACTLY the same, handwritten calligraphy is probably not for you.
Whether you choose "pen in ink" calligraphy or an alternative way, you will have class and beauty to set the tone for your Wedding Day. Your guests will be impressed that you took the time to make everything personal. Some think that these things are small and unimportant, but just like you keeping a "scrapbook" of your wedding day that may have your invitation, a certificate, poem, verse, napkin, or other keepsakes. A lot of your guests will be flattered and honored that they have just received a beautifully hand addressed invitation that stood out from the rest of their "everyday" mail and will keep these unique treasures making your Wedding memorable. You may want to add handwritten calligraphy to other aspects of your wedding ceremony and reception, some things may seem "small" but in reality they are actually making a "BIG" statement. Not only setting a tone but showing off your personality.
