The Calligraphy Update

Well, I went ahead and ordered the Calligraphy for Dummies book from my local library.

Thankfully we ordered 50 extra envelopes because I just didn't love the look of my take on calligraphy.

Instead, I'm enjoying my own personal handwriting with a few extra swirls and loops. I know it makes me sound like the anti-bride (which I'm so not), but I can't help but smile about the fact that we're saving some money by doing it ourselves.

I'm kind of shocked about how much we're expected to spend on one single day. Things may not be as fancy as they could be, but I'm trying to focus on what's really important, everyday after our wedding when it's just us, together forever.

anti-bride? what does that even mean? is it anti-bride to put your personal touch on your wedding invitations?

it is shocking how much we're all expected to spend on our weddings, but I have to object to your implying that to go against the wedding industrial complex you're some kind of "anti-bride."
