Would you pay for calligraphy for placecards?

Recommended Posts

I think they look good. They do not look professional, but cute.

 

I like the idea of putting them away for a few days and if you don't like them then...bite the bullet and buy new ones and have them done.

Ok -i am going to be honest - i would have them re-done. they do look cute but look very 'home-made' and i think home-made is OK if it is intentional KWIM? now i am a bit of a perfectionist so my opinion might be on the more extreme end but if it was me i would want them to be more consistent and a bit more professional looking.

I hear what you're saying. I'm not sure what I'm going to do because I think deep down inside, they probably won't matter, but I'm not 100% convinced of that yet :) !

Considering I still have to spend $ on my BD pics (i finally found a photog I liked!), alterations, and my FI and I are purchasing a 2nd home (woo hoo!), I can't justify on spending one more dime on the darn sand dollars!

So, I think what I will do is take them with me and if I hate the way they look when all the decor is put together I'll just have them removed.

(That's what I'm saying right now, so incase I change my mind I'll advise you!!!)

I think they look great. But I like things with a "home-made" touch. Much more personal.

 

And honestly, no one is really going to care about them. They are there to see you and FI get married.. not how their name is printed on a sand dollar :)

I think that the ones that you did are fine. Do you intend to display them exactly as they are in the picture that you posted? If so, is there anyway for you to recreate the "complete look" so that you get a better idea as to if they are closer to your vision? Maybe if you see them that way, in some type of box, with sand & shells, you'll be able to figure out if you truly like it or not. Sometimes seeing something complete can change your point of view!

I think the ones you did actually look fine and they'll be cute when you present them in the cute little box with sand and shells.

 

Nobody will see them side-by-side with your inspiration pic except for us. I think your guests will appreciate the creativity more than they'll worry about the handwriting anyway.

I really do think they look great. They make a cute, unique placecard. After spending hours on my daughter's placecards, I think only one person actually saved theirs. The rest were thrown away with the trash. Ouch!

I know this is your vision, so you may not want to make a change, but this is just a completely different option:

 

Buy the sand dollars again and instead of spending 90$ on them to have names on them, thread a little pretty ribbon through them, add a little tag with the guest's name and present them at the table as place cards so that they can all take them away with them and use them as ornaments when they get home!

I'm doing something similar, so I'm biased, but that way they will actually get used afterwards (in theory); I wouldn't keep a sanddollar with my name written on it.

 

It's a totally DIY-friendly project.

 

Voila!

I would definitely pay for it, especially if it is part of your decor. When you think about all the money your spending, another $90 doesn't seem that bad does it?
