I amliu tittle disappointed because I just received my invites and envelopes, and the zip code line line is crooked on almost all of them. I know it takes a lot of effort to do calligraphy, but I’m thinking,this is my wedding invitation- it’s supposed to be perfect. This calligrapher was well reviewed on several different wedding blogs and sites, but I feel like the product I got doesn’t reflect that. I also only have a month until my wedding- what should I do?

I would contact the calligrapher and sit down and show her the things you’re unahppy with. She can either redo them (at her expense, rushed) or give you a discount. Since you’re a month out, you’re not left with many options, but it would be worth it to talk to her.

I might talk to her and ask for a discount since it wasn’t you wanted. But given the time crunch I don’t think I’d ask her to redo them. Honestly, I don’t think many people pay that much attention to the outer envelope nor do I think they would judge you if it were slightly crooked. Do you have picture we can see? It might actually be that bad.

I would be bummed if I paid someone to do calligraphy and the lines were crooked, but as a guest I wouldn’t think twice about a crooked zip code. I just finished doing fauxligraphy on my invitations and while I’m happy with them they’re clearly handwritten, you know? They don’t look like they could have been printed on a printer, but that’s both the beauty and the curse of handwriting. Anyway, go ahead and send them out and do not worry about it!
