It’s beautiful, but if those are actual address, I could block at least the address part out.

I think they look great! I don’t think you need to be an expert calligrapher to do your own addresses. You don’t have to be perfect because people will know you went the extra mile to give them a personal touch. 🙂 One of my biggest wedding pet peeves is address labels on save the dates and invites, so I’m doing my own calligraphy too. I think that calligraphy pens give your own penmanship a nice flair so you don’t have to learn the styles exactly. Good luck!

Looks great! I recently took a calligraphy class and it’s definitely not easy. You could also print out in a calligraphy font and go over up in a marker or pen. Just something to think about.

If you don’t mind me asking, did you take a class or did you learn on your own? iIf the latter, could you please share tips or videos etc. you used? Thanks!

Yeah, it can definitely be a pain to print on envelopes. Either way I think what you have looks great so if it’s easier you should stick with it!
