are you using a Caligrapher for addressing

Recommended Posts

I am sending out announcements for my cabo wedding, should i use a Caligrapher? is it tacky to create clear labels with fancy font for the announcements? The announcements are from Crane.

 

thanks for your help!

I didn't use a calligrapher for my invites. I did all 150 of them by hand using a Pilot gold marker with an extra fine point. I have fairly decent handwriting so they came out pretty good. I actually had guests comment on how the writing on the envelope looked and they thought that I had hired someone to address them.

 

Have you thought about running the envelopes through a printer with a calligraphy or script style font instead of using labels? I think it may give it a cleaner look than using labels.

I don't think it's tacky and it is something I struggled with. My BM's convinced me to save the money and use labels.

 

If you can spring the cash for a calligraphy go for it, if not then don't give it a second thought.

Thanks guys! I feel better about it after talking to you all. Its just an announcement, and i am sure i am one of the few people that will even keep the thing. I dont really want to spend the cash on an envelope that they will just throw away! I wonder if i could take my address list to kinkos or some printer and have them just print the address directly on the envelope?? if i could do this in a fancy font then i think it would look better.

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well.
