Amanda of An Occasional Design sent these Thank You notecards over for me to share with {ELD} readers. I love being able to provide you all with things you can use! Best of all, the design doesn’t scream “WEDDING”, so they’re applicable for just about anything! Just print them out on a good cardstock, and you’re good to go!

So you’ve received your invitations (hopefully custom ones that you are absolutely in love with) and it’s time to address them! You’ve been practicing your handwriting for a few days, and you write out an address on a test envelope. It doesn’t look that great. In fact, it completely takes away from the beauty of your invitation. So you look at your options. Printing the addresses onto the envelopes, which is actually a painstaking process with feeding envelopes into the printer, and taking the chance that some of them might be eaten by said printer. Or you can have the addresses calligraphed by a professional, and give your guests a beautiful “first look” at your invitations, as well as save you some sanity.

 

When it came to my own invitations, I thought that calligraphy was out of the question, mostly because I didn’t know how to go about having it done! Having your addresses calligraphed is actually quite simple and affordable. You send your invitations to the calligrapher, along with your list of addresses, and once complete, they then send the invitations back to you for you to mail. There are many different types of calligraphy, and they are all unique to the calligrapher. You can have the calligraphy be modern and bold or something classic and elegant!

 

Some of my favorite calligraphers are Jennifer of Calligraphy By Jennifer and Amanda of Swoon Over It. They both do absolutely beautiful work, and their styles are completely unique! I definitely wish I had known about them before my wedding…which is of course why I’m sharing this will all of you!

How beautiful is all of this calligraphy? I love the two completely different styles…there are so many options! You really can have just about anything calligraphed…your escort cards, notecards, stationery…whatever your heart desires! Has anyone had their invitations (or anything else) calligraphed?

This wedding by Anna Rose is pure amazingness. If it hadn’t been submitted to me, I would have thought that it was taken out of a movie. The bride and groom are absolutely gorgeous and so adorable, and the location…oh you know, just the beautiful country of Australia!  It looks like we have yet another wedding that I’m in love with. (Are you surprised?) Now, enjoy the beauty…

Absolutely, totally and completely amazing, right? And I love the bride’s dress, which is surprising because I’m usually partial to lace. So many beautiful details, yet very chic and simple.

 

Anna Rose is an amazing photographer! Gorgeous work Anna! Thank you for sharing this wedding with us!

I love the simplicity of this beautiful rustic wedding by Koontz Photography & Design. This wedding took place in October at the Wild Acres Villa, a gorgeous venue near Deland, Florida! I’m always excited to find out about different Florida venues, and this is the Florida that I know and love! The bride and groom are radiant with happiness, and it all looks like it was so much fun! One of those weddings that you wish you were at, you know?
