Your story, like every couple’s journey, is one-of-a-kind, and tailored calligraphy is one way to add a deeply personal touch to the ceremony celebrating your union.
With literally millions of options to choose from, here are 3 tips to make your wedding stationery and collaterals feel unique.
1. Decide the Vibe
Traditional or modern? Rustic or elegant? Innovative or tried-and-true? “It’s not what you say, it’s how you say it” also applies to calligraphy styles; some will feel more playful, while others may look more delicate.
2. Choose a Tool
The same handwriting is given a much different expression using a ballpoint pen, or a nib and ink, or a brush.
3. Make it Your Own
Once you know the rules, you have the freedom to break them and mix-and-match to your heart’s content.
It’s the little imperfections of something hand-made that best communicate authenticity and personal connection, so I hope these tips will help you make your day extra special and unique.
