In September I had the pleasure of hosting a bridal calligraphy workshop in Charleston with Mixbook. We collaborated to create a fun girls night out in downtown Charleston with a calligraphy class led by Dawn Nicole Calligraphy. Calligraphy is one of those skills that really comes in handy when you’re planning a wedding so I was really excited to see lots of real brides at our event! Dawn taught our guests the basics you need to get started and everyone was sent home with Tombow pens – so there is no excuse not to practice! Mixbook is the easiest way to create fully customizable photo products like invitations, save the dates, prints, and wedding albums so they are the perfect site to use if you want to DIY your own calligraphy, but need help with design and printing. You can read more about their DIY save the dates – here! I am so excited to share the details of our Charleston calligraphy workshop and photos from Alex Thornton below!Here’s a peak at the gift bag guests received at our Charleston calligraphy workshop full of goodies from Mixbook, Cupcake Down South, Le Grande Courtage, and a print from By Dawn Nicole! Guests enjoyed desserts and snacks from Cookies by Emy, Cupcake Down South, and Poogan’s Porch. How fun are these cookies designed to look like our invites! Rather than choose from a generic pre-made template, Mixbook’s online design software gives you the freedom to customize your wedding suite in a matter of minutes and create something that represents your style. Mixbook is the perfect site to design your wedding stationery if you want to include custom calligraphy. It’s as easy as drawing out your custom logo or crest and uploading to their online templates! Then you can add more customization and let them do the printing. How pretty are these flowers? Heidi from on A Limb Floral Studio really out did herself with these centerpieces for our Charleston calligraphy workshop. I told her we were looking for feminine and pretty pieces and she completely ran with it. Proof that you should give your wedding vendors space to be creative, they know what they are doing!It was so fun catching up with some of my favorite blogger babes during the night. Make sure to follow Hillheady, Dannon K. Collard, Charleston Blonde, Coastal Kelder, Chasing Cinderella, and Pie Crust and Pixie Dust!
