You are now in high gear planning out all of the details for your wedding and may have come to the point where you need to decide whether or not you’d like to hire a calligrapher to create a custom look for your special occasion. My opinion? Do it. You will have the opportunity to create with an artist and build a package that is unique to you and your partner. Calligraphy and custom lettering will add those eye catching details that you see in the wedding magazines. There are hundreds, maybe even thousands of talented people to choose from adding yet another to-do to your wedding planning list. Kelli Hall highlighted a few last month and I’m also showcasing three of my favorites that I am always keeping tabs on today. They are constantly creating and impressing with their skills. Read on for more of my picks…
At the first wedding event/show I ever attended, I was introduced to Plurabelle Calligraphy and have been a follower ever since. Out of the three that I have chosen I think she has the most classic of styles. Above are just a few samplings of her work. If you are considering adding a few elements into your wedding decor, you can choose to commission a stamp for favor tags, have custom place cards created, or go with the traditional invitation addressing. That isn’t all you can do though, see more services of the website here.

With Molly Jacques, you are sure to get a completely different feel than our first pick. Her style can range from the one side of the spectrum to the other with traditional and modern styles. Not only does she offer calligraphy, but as you can see above she can whip up a hand lettered custom font. From save the dates to custom artwork for your decor, she’s got you covered. Check out her work and services here on the website.

And last but not least, Sally who creates for La Happy has a style all her own. Whimsical and playful, I love her use of swirls, spacing and alignment in all her work. Besides the envelope addressing and place card options, she also showcases her calligraphy in use on fabulous drink signage and custom love notes. It’s all in the details, so don’t forget about those small pieces that can make a huge impact. You can see more of Sally’s work on her website here.
My favorite way to quickly catch up on what all of the ladies are up to is instagram. Plus you get to see their day to day work that doesn’t always get uploaded to a portfolio. So be sure to check out Plurabelle, Molly Jacques and La Happy.
