It was such a delight to work with planner- Julian Leaver – The Dapper Diplomat. The designer was Emily Clarke Events with stationer – The Detail Department on this fun Dallas wedding.
The wedding invitations were so lovely in a palette of light blue, green, white and gold.
I addressed the wedding envelopes in grass green. The classic Olivia script was used. Isn’t the watercolor on the invitation gorgeous?! The green is a nice touch.
The day of items were super special because the bride is an equestrian. The winners ribbons idea created the seating display.
I used the Olivia script and white ink to write the guest names. They went directly on the ribbons and the number went in the center circle. It all turned out so lovely!
And just a little behind the scenes for you – ink and ribbon isn’t always a good mix so we have to “prepare the surface” in calligraphy speak. So a little insiders secret is to lightly coat with hairspray to make it a bit less slick & accept the ink without bleeding!
Since I am a Texas wedding Calligrapher- extreme hold is always a necessity 😉
