Call calligraphers to view work samples and discuss their fees. Book a calligrapher or ask a friend to assist you with your calligraphy needs. Provide a complete guest list with addresses and envelopes to whoever is addressing the invitations. If applicable, provide calligrapher with seating cards and table number cards.
It's very important to know how many guests will be attending your wedding, so make sure to leave enough time to get back those RSVP cards early. A standard rule of thumb is to order 10% more extra envelopes than you think you may need. This will come in handy if your calligrapher accidentally makes a mistake while addressing the invitations. Save a few extra invitations to keep as mementos for yourself and close relatives.
