Would you pay for calligraphy for placecards?
Posted 15 August 2008 - 01:17 PM
My aunt came over to work on these these last night. She was writing the names on with a pencil first, she tried erasing a few times and broke three. I was furious, so I decided that I would take matters in to my own hands. I couldn't stop; I just kept on writing! I wrote the names on all of them and I HATE the way they came out. I think they look so cheap and my vision of what I wanted is completely ruined. I completely regret not paying for the calligraphy!! It was really difficult to write on these because of the curve and texture.
What should I do, should I buy more?! I really don't want to spend the $$ on more, but I really think they look crappy!

In my previous post, I said that I wouldn't pay for it, but you really have your heart set on it and it matters a great deal to you, so I would suck it up and pay it. There are lots of things that I did or didn't do at my wedding that I wish I had or hadn't. If this is one of those things that means alot to you, it doesn't matter what we say!

I agree. Sometimes you just have to bite the bullet and splurge for your vision. Sounds like a stressful night. Hope you and your aunt weren't too distressed.
Also, do you have a bigger picture, its really had to see.

They said that if the wedding was very formal, then they would understand why I would want them done proffesionally. But, since I'm having a semi-formal beach wedding, that the writing and sand dollars go along with everything else. They "claim" it adds charm and character because I wrote them myself. I don't know if I believe that part, but I guess it does add a little of that personal touch!?!

Thanks, that's a good idea! The more I keep looking at them the more I'm going to get emotional about it. I'll give myself a break from them this weekend!
