@CARA1978:  I haven’t, but if you have few enough people that you won’t ruin your ahnd writing them out, I don’t see a problem. it could be sweet.

The only time I ever saw them was for a hella expensive (we’re talking $50K+ in the late ’90s) event. The bride’s step-mother hand wrote/calligraphied EVERYTHING. It was damned elegant. Tween me was dumbstruck watching her work on them. 

I love the idea of hand-written invitations. So personal! If you can stand to do it, I see no reason not to.

I hand written mine. It’s pretty easy and fun and I would say pretty unique! I’ll attach mine when I find it.

I hand wrote mine, but I only had about 12 to write. TBH, I wouldn’t have wanted to write very many more of them.

They are all different ones, I relaxed on how perfect the writing was. It had the handmade look no doubt and that’s why i think it can get through with the imperfections.

If you’re short on time, the LAST thing I would do is to hand-write them, especially if you have more than 5.

Fast prints are easy.  Hell, use Walmart photo to make picture invitations.

My handwriting is deplorable but if you have nice handwriting it could be really cute. I’m considering using a calligrapher for my enveloples

@ANGELaaimt:  Yep they took forever 🙁 I regretted it sometimes half way through. But I plowed on. The bits that took forever were the decorations, the actual writing was the fast bit. The decorations took forever because I didn’t want to make each one unique-ish. Coming up with something new with every card was what took most of my time 🙁
