Hello Bridal Babes!
I don’t know about y’all, but I am completely obsessed with calligraphy, faux & the real thing and I wanted to have something special to wear for all of the wedding festivities and as a keepsake so! I reached out to Kelly from Bash Calligraphy. You might remember her from my 2017 Pantone post she was the one who lettered on that gorgeous, juicy, green cactus! Well, she created this beautiful piece for me! Check it out!

I am seriously in love with it, I can’t wait to wear it for my bridal shower, bachelorette trip, WEDDING!, & honeymoon! This is like a letterman jacket but 10 million times better!! Kelly was so sweet & totally made this custom to fit my style (which is romantic & whimsy) but this got me thinking, what other calligraphy trends are out there that can help personalize your big day?

I am swooning over that top right image, I LOVE the pressed flowers in the acrylic sign!! I might have to incorporate something like that into our wedding! You can letter on just about anything, it’s all about using your imagination. From wood to glass and acrylic to leather… if you can write on it – you can make it something extra special! Here are some pens for you to check out:
- For brush lettering on paper, the Tombow Dual Brush Pens are where it’s at.
- Good ol’ oil based Sharpies will write on almost anything. And they’re permanent.
- Chalk Ink; the best chalk markers on the market. Of course, you’ll want to get the exclusive Something Turquoise marker!
- Here’s a Brush Calligraphy Starter Kit from Printable Wisdom to get you started!
