Calligraphy is a visual art related to lettering and penmanship. Traditionally calligraphy has been used for invitations and addressing. Modern calligraphy ranges in style and also includes digital typography, in addition to hand written calligraphy with pens and brushes. Hand calligraphy is truly a work of art, and is a beautiful addition as a wedding detail. Today, couples are utilizing calligraphy in more ways than just for their invitation envelope addressing. Here are a few great ideas to include calligraphy for your wedding, see the original post on The DC Ladies.

1. Tried and true as the envelope address, and incorporated throughout the invitation set and day-of wedding stationery with place cards, menu cards, programs and more!
