For those of you who addressed your invitations by hand...

Recommended Posts

I ended up drawing pencil lines on the envelopes and erasing them after I wrote them out. I think they came out fine. I can't worry about things like that. I'm just happy their finished!

We did all 134 of ours ourselves we had planed to run them thought the printer but it didn't like our envelopes. We bought calligraphy pens from paper source, They make certain parts of the line thicker than the others depending on how you write so it loos like calligraphy and we just wrote carefully. The all turned out pretty nicely there was one or two I didn't like but it was just me being ocd,

I did ours myself. Years ago I bought calligraphy sets and learned how to do it fairly well and I only had like 40 to send out so it wasn't bad.

Even if you don't really know how to do calligraphy, just writing with calligraphy (fine-tip) markers or pens dresses up your own handwriting b/c of the way the tip is slanted (like Jt mentioned). I'd recommend practicing a little, but it's really not hard.

I just addressed 60 save the date envelopes myself. Fun stuff. I just got a really nice black pen/marker thing and went to town. I have neat writing and I did a practice one first and figured out how to line stuff up so it's symmetrical. I think they look pretty good, but for some reason I am not too concerned with this stuff. Most people just throw the envelope out anyway.

But now that I think about it for formal invites I may run them through a printer. Save the dates are a little less formal.

    • Hundreds of years before, the basic jewellery were made out of seashells and bone, trees and animal skin. In the ancient times, the Egyptian jewellery first came into existence. Egyptian culture inhabited technology, gemstones, and precious metals early in comparison to other places. They were inspired by the culture of royalty and aristocracy which led to thinking noble like having a deep appreciation for luxury. This made them create impactful jewellery and leading trends. Copper was the first metal that came into existence through which we as humans got so many jewellery items.  However, the major focus on jewellery came when they discovered gold. This allowed the Egyptian to rule as the first jewellery maker. The ancient Egyptians valued adornment and were worn by both men and women.  Material and metals: The plethora of material which was used in the making of this Egyptian jewellery was basically gold and silver. Egyptian has mostly attracted towards gold and the availability of silver was less in Egypt as compared to any other place. The colour variation was due to the mixing of elements such as alloys like copper, iron, silver into gold.  Charm jewellery: It was then also an interesting concept to have charms in necklaces, bracelets and other jewellery items. It’s just they were made up of stones and precious or semi-precious jewellery. In this picture above the necklace is adorned with precious stones in different charms shapes. Gem and stones: The more royal pieces of Egyptian jewellery were adorned with the precious jewellery items. The gemstones were semi-precious stones, precious stones are other various gems. The most prized stone were lapis lazuli, rock crystal, and pearls. Emeralds were also found in these jewellery pieces. These were made from ground quartz and then molded into expensive gemstones. They are also used as charm jewellery when molded or carved in different shapes.
