Calligraphy. Calligraphed invitations are very elegant. They work well for weddings with an old fashioned theme, but can be very expensive due to the amount of time and effort involved in producing them. Because of the expense, you might also look for a printer who creates the look of calligraphy on printed invitations. Note: When deciding on whether to choose calligraphy invitations, remember that you need to allow extra time for preparation. Keep in mind, too, that this type of invitation may smudge if it comes in contact with moisture.
There is not a single reason to despair, even if the budget allocated for your wedding is kind of small. As I have already mentioned, there are many couples in this situation and they know the tricks they can use so as to still have the dream wedding they have always wanted. If you have no imagination or skills in what concerns creating your own wedding invitations, you can still find some cheap models in the stores which deal with such things.
