32 Ways to Incorporate Calligraphy Into Your Wedding

32 Ways to Incorporate Calligraphy In Your Wedding - True North Paper Co

I love the personal and beautiful touch that calligraphy can add to any wedding. There are so many ways to add that little extra splash of ink, whether it’s in a big statement-making-way or just in the little details. And I also love that with so many different options, there’s also something for every budget (praise hands, amiright!?).

I thought it would be a good idea to put this list together so that everyone out there could get some new ideas on how to incorporate calligraphy into your big day. And even within these ideas there are so many different ways to customize and change it up (i.e. just think of all the different place card material options that are out there - paper, tile, glass, wood, etc.), so keep that in mind with this list - there are options on top of options!

Without further ado, here we go - 32 Ways to incorporate Calligraphy Into Your Wedding:
