I recently had the pleasure of creating a Calligraphy Seating Chart for a wedding.
I always love to see the process of something coming together. So I thought I’d share mine with you.
First it starts with a pencil layout. This type of project requires a great deal of layout as it is 22″ x 28″ and has 4 rows of 20-22 names.

So here’s my layout sheet.  I’ve also played with the bride and groom’s names at the top.  Although I ended up changing the design a little.

Now it’s time to start using pen and ink to fill in the names and header. Here is a pic showing one column of names done and part of the second. I’m working closely from the typed list, blocking the names below the one I’m working on to avoid mistakes in spelling.

Since the names were listed alphabetically, the way the names broke up left a larger space at the bottom of the third column.  This is the perfect opportunity to add a little illustration to the piece.

Because I laid everything out in advance, I was prepared for this and had created a design that fit nicely.

Here is the finished piece mounted on foam core.  It was then placed in a 22″ x 28″ frame for presentation at the wedding.

If you have any other questions about how this was done, please don’t hesitate to ask!

Have a Mega Monday!
