    Calligraphy style wedding invitations refer to wedding invitation designs that incorporate intricate, decorative handwriting or printed decorative lettering that have been used for centuries.

    An art form that not just everybody can pull off properly, you would need to hire a professional calligrapher to hand-write your wedding stationery which is often a costly affair that many couples can’t afford - so how do you have calligraphy wedding invites for a more affordable price?

    Printed Calligraphy Wedding Stationery

    We completely understand that for most couples, the more affordable route is always important when it comes to planning a wedding, so that’s exactly why we think digitally printed calligraphy designs are a faster, cheaper and thus, better option to handwritten calligraphy.

    1. Who’s Hosting?

    In a traditional sense it is often the bride’s parents that are the hosts of the wedding, however including both sets of parents as hosts is a more commonly used format now, regardless of who foots the bill.

    In circumstances where the bride and groom, together with both sets of parents are paying  for the wedding, the words “Together with their parents, Peter and Mary request the pleasure of your company...” can be used.

    2. Bride and Groom’s Names

    Traditionally, the bride’s name always precedes the grooms and if her parents are hosting it’s always her first and middle name that’s listed, while the groom’s full name is included. Titles are an option, but by no means a necessity.

    3. Date and Time of the Wedding

    Whether it’s a formal or more casual affair, it is considered important for the date to be written out in full on wedding invitations, without numerals. The time should be written out with the terms “o’çlock” or “half after” for traditional weddings, while for a more casual wedding, numerals are with a.m. or p.m. are acceptable.

    4. Wedding Ceremony Information

    This is fairly straightforward and ideally should be just the name of the venue with the city and state written in full. However, if the wedding is taking place at a home or a venue that is not well known, you can opt to include the street address in the wedding invitations too.

    5. Reception Info

    For traditional, formal weddings, reception information is normally printed on a separate card, however this is not a must and a lot of couples prefer to have it printed on the wedding invitation itself (granted that there is sufficient room).

    If the reception is taking place at the same location of the wedding ceremony, a simple line like “and afterward at the reception” should be included. If the reception is being held at a different location, the venue details should be listed on a separate line.

    6. Dress Code

    Wedding invitation etiquette dictates that the dress code should be mentioned on the lower right hand corner of your wedding invitation. If you opt not to include a dress-code, your wedding guests are likely to follow your wedding invitation style as a guideline. For instance a traditional wedding invitations in classic colours will indicate a formal dress code, while a more laid-back wedding invitation style gives the impression of a casual dress code.

    7. RSVP Card

    In the case of traditional weddings, couples opt to include a separate RSVP card which the guests will fill up and mail back to the couple. However, a lot of contemporary weddings skip this and opt to have a wedding website instead.
