I love the personal feel of handwritten wording featured in many invitations and save the dates lately. It’s personal, warm and creative. I adore how simple these pieces are, as you can really appreciate the way each letter looks, rather than being distracted by other embellishments. If you wanted to jazz it up a bit, you could always add a colorful envelope, mat, or enclosure card (with more handwriting goodness)!
I haven’t completed a project like this for any of my clients, but even so, my handwriting wouldn’t be worthy of this. I would probably have my grandmother do the honors, she has magnificent handwriting, and it would mean so much more to me!
You could easily turn this in to a DIY project by writing out one invitation on a white sheet of paper, then scan it, and adjust the contrast, then print! If you’re familiar with Photoshop, you could even change the color.View blog reactions
