Watching someone go down on one knee to propose is such a sweet moment. The surprise, the shock, and the hugs and kisses to follow are even sweeter. With that in mind, Sophia of SophScript Co. sharing 3 reasons why hiring a calligrapher to add to this special moment might be a good idea for you.
I’ve seen beautiful proposals, expertly decorated with lights, photos, and flowers. Then, when it comes to a sign with the question or letter that expresses everything you’re feeling and don’t want to forget, people drop the ball. While your own handwriting will get the job done, having a calligrapher write these out for you will create a stunning, cohesive look. An experience that special deserves lettering to reflect it, right? Imagine graduating, expecting your diploma, and it’s written on a Post-It note. It has all the same words but doesn’t match the festivities. When you hire a calligrapher for your proposal, you can make sure that anything you want written matches the moment.
Following the proposal, you may want to celebrate with close family and friends. This group is likely to be much smaller than the guest list for your upcoming wedding. With that comes the opportunity to do the absolute most for your closest guests at a price tag that you may not be able to do for everyone else. You can place more luxurious place cards at each guest’s seat. You can create amazingly personalized gifts, maybe even have live calligraphy for guests to enjoy.
Your engagement is an excellent time to try working with a calligrapher who you’re interested in. You get a sneak preview into how this calligrapher works: their style, their process, and yes… their personality. The timeline for creating these amazing pieces for your engagement is much shorter than it will be for your wedding, so if the experience is not what you expected, you’re not tied together for long. This is an opportunity to take a “test drive” to see if this is the calligrapher you really want to work with for your wedding.
