@EffieTrinket:  I like Edwardian Script and most programs already have it ready to use so you don’t have to download it.

@EffieTrinket:  I used Mrs. Blackfort for my Save the Dates and had none returned. It’s not really calligraphy so much as handwriting…

I don’t understand why people get so bent about this. Some “faux pas” are silly in this day and age. There are tons of really cute options for printing envelopes, and I can even get down with a cute wrap around lable. I mentioned printing lables for my save the dates, and couldn’t help but giggle at my sister (to be fair, she’s a pro caligrapher, so she’s doing my invites, but caligraphy save the dates? too much!) who got super snobby about things that should be “hand printed”….  says who?!?! Calm down already!!

@EffieTrinket:  ehhh this is one of those etiquette things that I think more and more people are not worrying about. I actually plan on typing out the addresses for our invitations. Lol but I wanna keep tabs on this post for ideals for fonts!

I don’t know if this counts as calligraphy, but I think I’m using Zapfino, it matches invitation/save the date fonts I’m using.

I loooooove Lavanderia. It’s so pretty, but still easy to read. I think I’m using Lavanderia for the names and a sans serif font for the actual address.
