…from practicing the caligraphy for our invites/save the dates.
My plan was/is to send them off to someone on Etsy and pay them to address our invites. Well, my amazingly wonderful and handsome fiance is doing ALL the paper for our wedding. He’s designing and hand letterpressing the invites and he’s designing and printing our save the dates, as well as 8 million other paper projects. So I realized the other day since he’s in the process of designing the save the dates, that someone will have to address them and only 1 of us was blessed with good hand writing (me!). So we’ve figured out the style of caligraphy i’ll be using and I’m sitting over here writing our name, friends names, fake names, and tons of real/fake addresses to get the hang of it. As a result, my hand hurts. I’m going to be getting a fancier pen with a thicker brush stroke to do them.

Is anyone else doing something similar?
