I was never able to find calligraphy lessons, but as a wedding gift I offered my services to my best friend just the same. I knew that with a calligraphy pen, it might not be perfect, but it would at least be legible (and handwritten)! On a side note, I am not a stickler for stuffy etiquette, but I must agree with the rule that wedding invitation envelopes should always be handwritten. It is the first impression your guests will receive from your wedding, so it is very important that it is personal.
It has taken me a couple of weeks, but I am finally finished with all 172 of them! Yea!
