Isn’t it wonderful with spring in the air!! Spring gives us the feeling of creating new things, fresh new beginnings with new decor for your home, new plants, fresh cut flowers and of course, we have the very busy wedding season upon us!! Love is in the air!!
I love creating with brides on how they want to convey their wedding invitations to their invited guests. Afterall, this is the first thing the guests see as an insight on what kind of wedding this will be. Invitations set the stage and when done by hand, it definitely sets the tone for the wedding, with a touch of class and elegance.
When invitations are done by hand, it is limitless! The bride and I have fun creating it and it’s a priviledge for me to be a part of it!!
I am featuring weddings in this blog, showing you samples of what one can do.
Above are samples of invitation stationery. On the left side this is completely hand written in the Chancery style in black ink. On the right the stationery is done with Ornate Cursive style in grey ink.
Above on the left side is what can be done when you combine Calligraphy and beautiful Letterpress in grey ink. On the right side, is a sample of an addressed invitation done in grey ink in the Ornate Cursive style. So if you have already chosen your invitations, and you use calligraphy just for addressing the envelopes; imagine what your guests will think when they see this in their mailbox.
Menus, place cards, programs, table seating charts, they are all icing on the cake when you present this done by hand. It makes your guests feel that much more special. There is real magic that takes place, when one sees their name beautifully written.
Calligraphy by Diane can service you completely for your wedding stationery or any part of it. That is the flexibility that hand done work offers you.
I am very proud and honoured to announce that I have been awarded by WedLuxe The Best of 2010 Award for Excellence in the category of Stationery for the calligraphy I did for the wedding of Paul & Wendy that is featured in summer/fall issue of WedLuxe magazine.
Here is the link to see the calligraphy I did for the wedding of Paul & Wendy. A special thanks to Paul and Wendy!
I look forward to servicing you whether it is for your special wedding event or any event. It is limitless when created by hand in calligraphy.
Congrats to all who are celebrating their wedding day in 2011!!
All the best,
