When you hear the word calligraphy, I bet most of you envision a beautifully addressed envelope. Trust us, we love a pretty envelope! But we’re kind of loving the gorgeously creative ways that couples are working with their vendors to really personalize their weddings, with calligraphy and custom lettering. In spirit of that, we’ve put together a pretty little round up of some of the loveliest lettering around!
Welcome Your Guests. Whether it’s a simple ‘welcome’ sign like this gem from Julie Song Ink or a custom sign with your names, your family and friends will love being welcomed to your special day.
A Beautiful Backdrop. We love this Victorian Party Etiquette signage from Stockroom Vintage. It’s a great focal point, ties the whole style so nicely together and gives guests something to chat about! Peruse the gallery to see how it pairs so nicely with the calligraphy from Hardink Calligraphy.
Place Cards. Here’s a classic form of calligraphy that’s sure to make your guests feel special right when they walk in the door. Belles Lettres Calligraphy prettied up these kraft cards with white ink for a casual summer wedding, which were held up by the cork key ring favors.
Hello there, Mr. & Mrs. Dress up your sweetheart table with your new titles! Aside from these darling driftwood Mr. / Mrs. signs from Julie Song Ink, a few fun variations we’ve seen on the wording are Bride / Groom, I’m His / I’m Hers, He’s All Mine / I’m with Her.
Tell Your Story. Pair your table number with a ‘story’ like these from October Ink. Or, name your tables after placed you’ve traveled, streets you’ve lived on or foods you love… share a fact about yourselves that your guests may not know!
Cocktail Calligraphy. The coolest part about this cocktail menu? Aside from the fact that it’s completely stunning… the Bride DIYed it herself. Now, we don’t expect y’all to become calligraphers overnight, but if you like your own handwriting, why not try it out yourself!
A Gorgeous Dinner Menu. Don’t leave your guests guessing what’s for dinner. Get them excited with a pretty menu! Take this gorgeous scroll watercolor menu from Julie Song Ink for example. It’s also a nice touch to create custom menus for each place setting, trust us, your guests will appreciate it.
Monogrammed Dessert Toppers. Laura Hooper Calligraphy fancied up these sweets with her lovely lettering. We like the idea of a cute phrase too, like “Love is sweet!”.
Welcome Baskets, Bags + Favors. Have a custom stamp made up with a sweet note from you and yours, like this adorable welcome basket from Bash, Please. You could also print these on fabric welcome bags or paper favor bags. It really doesn’t get any cuter than that!
