WedoCalligraphy.com recommends that you prepare your guest list
as early in your engagement as possible. Start getting addresses now.
  • You will need to know how many people you will be inviting
    prior to finalizing plans with most of your vendors
  • Whatever number of invitations you order, you should add an extra quantity of
    25 outer and inner envelopes for the calligrapher.
  • It is best to plan ahead.
