Ahhh…fall is definitely in the air! Tree leaves beginning to change their color and trickle their way slowly to the ground, while pumpkins are bursting forth yearning for someone to create something magical with it! There are so many uses for pumpkins. How about incorporating them into your fall wedding decor with an added touch of calligraphy? See my tips below for some ideas using pumpkins and calligraphy.


Pumpkin inspiration for wedding decor

Calligraphy Tips:

- Embellish your pumpkins with a calligraphy monogram or table number and use as a table centerpiece

- Calligraphy can be used on place cards which can be attached to miniature pumpkins for guest seating

- Use a small pumpkin instead of a traditional ‘ring pillow’; and add a sweet hand lettered tag that says “I do!” or “With this ring…”

John and Ella’s summer wedding was absolutely breathtaking! The beautiful couple had a rustic style farm wedding, filled with that sweet country charm. I had the pleasure of working closely with Lisa (Ella’s mom), and one of my favorite stationers, Poppy Gray, to make the couple’s day extra special by using my calligraphy to complement their theme. The calligraphy chosen was my Willow style – just perfect for a casual, yet elegant, farm wedding! From envelopes, to invitations, to the adorable personalized sign (which can all be monogrammed), I love how the calligraphy added a special personal touch that could be felt throughout the wedding, and helped to create special memories on the family’s farm.

Creating a monogram is one of my favorite things to do! I love the initial challenge of determining the best way to combine the letters, followed by the excitement I feel when it’s just right! While monograms are perfect additions to all of your wedding paper goods, and for branding welcome gifts for your guests, I also love to see how they are incorporated into other design elements for the big day. Here are some of my favorites:

  • Megan and Joseph added their calligraphy monogram to koozies; while Emily and John used their monogram to create labels for their popper favors – cute!

  • Wax seals! I love the idea of using them to seal escort card envelopes or as an embellishment for place cards.

  • Samantha and Samuel used their calligraphy monogram for their wedding gobo, projecting the monogram onto the dance floor; and also for cigar bands.

And a few more ideas:

  • Have your monogram laser cut and used as your wedding cake topper
  • Custom monogrammed balloons would make for some great after party fun decor or photo session
  • Use your monogram as a backdrop for a photo booth

Your turn! How will you be using your monogram for the big day? I would love to read your ideas so leave a comment below. I look forward to it!
