I know some of you may come in here just to tell me this is a faux pas.
Well, I have a stack of five returned Save the Date cards (one to my parents, so it’s not like I just got the addresses wrong!) attesting to the fact that either my calligraphy and handwriting really suck, or the postman refuses to take the time to try and read anything that isn’t typed or printed in large,plain lettering. I drew and erased little guidelines and took my time to the point of them going out very late, so I am not sure what else I could have done.
Either way, I am going to save the double postage and my sanity by typing this time, etiquette be damned. I am looking for a font that is realy nice looking, but also plenty legible. I had also considered calligraphy font for the names, and then an old-fashioned typeface font for the address just to further eliminate any problems.
Did any of you do this? What fonts did you use?

@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!!

I am using Alex Brush as it matches the rest of my invites…

@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.
