I had a wave of wedding panic last night. It was brought on by the reappearance of a couple whose very lavish, very expensive wedding we are going to photograph in May. My little, homegrown wedding ideas suddenly seemed to be very dinky compared to their upcoming grand affair.
I've learned that when wedding panic strikes, it's best to take some action. One thing on my excel planning to-do list is to try calligraphy.
So I busted out my pen (from an LAC party) and a bottle of ink and gave it a shot. First off, it's really hard. Second, sort of relaxing too! I'm not terrible at it. There's a slight chance that this could work for our invitations.
It was interesting to discover that there's a real reason for cursive handwriting. You need the swooshes to stop ink from splattering all over the place. I had never really considered that before.
