Calligraphed invitations: 6 artistic ways to add a personal feel

Calligraphy adds a personal and artistic feel to your wedding stationery. Here are some gorgeous examples we've curated!
 

1. Keeping it simple

With your names in a simple handwriting font and floral illustrations in white against brown, this invitation is proof that you don’t always need an elaborate design.

2. Walking on sunshine

A cheery yellow enlivens the mood of your special occasion. Personalise your invite with a quote.

3. Settling for super chic

If you’re having a classy affair, marble stationery suites are upping the posh factor right now. Go with a script set in rose gold to turn up the glamour.

4. Going green

Take your cue from Greenery – Pantone’s 2017 colour of the year. This stunning watercolour set is inspired by leafy foliage and green geode-inspired cakes.

6. Adding fun

Light colours and playful illustrations set the tone for a lively, laidback bash. In this set, guests are invited to draw their own choice of mains on the card and post it on the couple’s Facebook event page.
