The Handwriting on the Envelope
You've probably heard before that your invitation will be the first impression your guests will have of your wedding. And though that is true, the envelope it arrives in will be seen before the actual invite.
There are several ways for you to personalize and style your envelopes. Choosing a colored envelope and a themed stamp are two options, but the calligraphy you select can make a huge statement.
The handwriting can be filled with flourishes, fun and whimsical or reflect a very relaxed and casual style. You can also select an ink color to compliment your wedding's color palette.
Laura Hooper's Calligraphy, featured here, offers brides over 2 dozen penmanship styles to choose from. In addition to envelopes, Laura can also design custom maps and monograms, as well as write table numbers and guests’ names on place and seating cards.
