@bRooklynRocks: No, not trained at all. I simply found some styles I thought were pretty and am trying to duplicate it. Nothing fancy, more of an embellished “cursive” style I guess. I looked up various tutorials online, and even read the archive blogs here on Weddingbee. #1 tip is to just keep practicing, write each letter over and over again so that you get comfortable.

I addressed my own. I actually used a blacklight/invisible marker to number the reply cards and then used it to draw lines for the envelope calligraphy since the envelopes were dark and metallic. I put a blacklight near where i was working and they glowed perfectly to keep things straight and centered. One of the bees recommended http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.88 Which i bought and were great. I like centered best.
