This book includes a number of romantic alphabets in styles from Celtic to modern, forms for invitations, many examples of custom work, and step-by-step instructions for projects ranging from favors to menu cards to guest books. This is a practical book for anyone planning a wedding.
Although engraved invitations have become standard for weddings, cards printed by hand are always in good taste. Most people do not have the handwriting skill for hand printing, so they fake it with a computer script or hire a calligrapher. This book has classic calligraphy instructions for those who would like to try it themselves, with a little practice first. Several types of alphabets are included, with detailed instructions on strokes and layout. A section on wedding etiquette has useful information on invitations, thank-you notes, and place cards, with photographs of many examples. An excellent book for public libraries.
