It's official -- we're definitely going the professional route on the calligraphy.
I am SO pleased with this decision. I know it's going to turn out absolutely fabulously, and don't regret the price tag!
This is the script we're going with:
Our calligrapher, Katie, of Belles Lettres Designs, is fantastic at what she does, obviously. I think it's quite a gift to be able to do calligraphy, and have always admired those that could.
We've opted to go with the white ink on the blue envelope, even though it will cost more. There are still just a few aspects of my vision that I'm unwilling to relinquish.
I'll be dropping off the addresses tomorrow, and in lightning speed, they should be ready sometime next week!! Pictures will definitely follow! :)
PS - I was able to successfully sell my Gocco, so we're not incurring any extra costs here! Holla for the budget!
