I was on the fence about having my invites hand addressed by a professional, I wasn't sure it would be worth the cost. Using Barbara might be the best decision I made during wedding planning- she is AMAZING!!! 100% worth the cost- I actually think for what she does, she is very reasonably priced. It saved me time, which is priceless. Her work is incredible and above that she is patient and professional (as I changed my mind a few times and had some address changes). She has several styles to choose from and also guided me on which would work best with my invite. I could not recommend her more!! An invitation is the first impression your guest has of your event, it sets the tone- it's so important!! Hire her- she's fabulous!
Barbara came highly recommend by our florist, A Touch of Elegance, and she certainly did not disappoint. She was amazing to work with; eliminating stress by answering any questions we had promptly and offering great advice. All of our guests loved our mirror seating chart with the beautiful calligraphy and adorable personal touches. We cannot thank you enough Barbara!!!
We were referred to Barbara by a close friend, and she was, hands down, the most responsive and professional vendor with whom we worked on our wedding. Barbara's work is excellent, she always responded to our outreach quickly, and she turned around our calligraphy - flawlessly - in just a few days. Would recommend her without reservation!
Barbara was outstanding! She was so helpful and accommodating with lettering request and ideas. She made the entire process so seamless, each time I would drop off items to be lettered they would be completed within just a few days! Everything was beautiful – she addressed my invite envelopes, place cards, table numbers and even signs for our wedding. I loved her writing so much that it was tough to part with the envelopes! Barbara was even helpful when some of the paper I provided was too thin to write on – she ended up ordering the perfect paper I had in mind. She was quick to respond to email and accommodating with last minute changes. We had many compliments from guests – most ended up saving their name cards they were so beautiful! I highly recommended Barbara. – you won’t be disappointed!
I loved working with Barbara at Belles Lettres Calligraphy and would recommend her and her calligraphy work to anyone looking for gorgeous hand-done calligraphy for wedding invitations. Barbara's prices are extremely competitive, and her customer service and professionalism are outstanding. Barbara is incredibly responsive (often responding within 10 minutes to all emails) and flexible when working with you. Barbara was willing to customize part of her font to match the font used on my invitations, and accommodated a handful of last minute changes for me. I cannot recommend her enough!
Working with Barbara was perfect. She is a true professional and amazing at her craft. From my initial inquiry to receiving my addressed envelopes, the entire process was smooth, seamless, timely, and not to mention her artistic ability is beautiful. She is a true pleasure to work with and I would without a doubt recommend her services.
Belles Lettres Calligraphy did a phenomenal job on my daughter's wedding invitations. Communication was excellent; Barbara responded almost immediately to my emails. She gave me excellent guidance. She completed the job in record time. But most important, she did a beautiful job printing out the addresses. She is the real deal! I would recommend her in a heartbeat!
Barbara was a dream to work with and her talent is simply breathtaking. She is also extremely prompt with her communication, and she hand addressed 125 inner and outer envelopes in under a week. I would highly recommend Barbara and Belles Lettres Calligraphy!
Barbara was efficient and talented. She was a breeze to work with and we were thrilled with her work. We can't recommend her any more highly
Working with Barbara of Belles Lettres Calligraphy was a joy and a pleasure. Her work is exceptional! I was the mother of the groom at my son's wedding last weekend and she helped make my rehearsal dinner kick-off party amazing. Not only did she address the invites but personalized so many gifts and special party decorations for me. She and I had so much fun with it! Her talent is boundless. I highly recommend Barbara. She is a delightful person, prompt beyond expectation, super communicative, fairly priced, very skilled and easy to work with. Barbara helped me make my event perfect!

Barbara did a phenomenal job with my wedding invitation calligraphy. She was organized, communicative and her work product exceeded my expectations. It was a pleasure!
Barbara of Belles Lettres Calligraphy is a dream to work with. I worked with Barbara to design a chalkboard seating chart for my wedding, and I could not be happier with the end result! Not only is her work so incredibly beautiful, but she's a true professional: highly responsive (both by phone and email); polite; and easy to work with. I was an indecisive bride, and she gave me multiple design options. Above all, she accommodated my busy schedule the week of my wedding, for easy pick-up and drop-off of the seating chart. I definitely recommend, and I'll be using Belles Lettres Calligraphy again for future projects!
I cannot say enough good things about Barbara and service. After not being able to find a calligrapher available in the Charlotte, NC area. I was recommended to reach out to Barbara. Barbara was responsive, kind, and really took the time to make sure she understood the style we were looking for. She went above and beyond to get it back on time and we could not be happier. Thank you, Barbara!
I wanted a mirrored program board for our wedding. We had originally purchased one on Etsy and two weeks before our wedding the vendor fell through. Belles Lettres Calligraphy was recommended by a friend who works at a wedding magazine and Barbara was a life saver. She made us the most perfect, beautiful board. She was so easy to deal with, responsive, worked so quickly to get us what we wanted in such a short time frame. She sent sketches of the board until the spacing and alignment were exactly what we envisioned. We keep saying we need to find another calligraphy project to use Barbara for! Thank you so much for everything!
Barbara is a total pleasure to work with, deeply talented and warm. I had very specific ideas for the various calligraphy needs associated with my wedding and Barbara was patient, accommodating, and incredibly flexible—and fast! She was by far my most reliable wedding vendor, and I couldn't recommend her more highly. I'm based in NYC and work as a lifestyle magazine editor, so have worked with countless top-notch calligraphers. None are as professional or efficient as Barbara!
Barbara was excellent and I couldn’t recommend her more! She was very responsive over email and FAST! I got my envelopes back in under a week and they were beautifully done and packaged. She offers a great variety of styles and I have gotten many compliments on the calligraphy. I also hired her to assemble and stamp my invitations which came out wonderfully! Overall a great vendor to work with and I would absolutely recommend her to a friend for beautiful and quick work. Thanks Barbara!
Barbara is AMAZING! She responded to emails immediately and the quality of her work is exceptional. Barbara completed our order in two days (envelope calligraphy for our wedding invitations) when I thought it would take her 2 weeks! I honestly do not know how she did such an amazing job so fast. I would recommend Barbara without hesitation. My fiance and I are getting married in Sept, and I am definitely going to ask Barbara to do our escort cards as well.
Barbara did the calligraphy for my envelopes. She was able to squeeze our large order in a tight time frame and was gracious beginning to end ! She was very cautious to ask questions when unsure, and was super accommodating when I had to add additional names more than once ! Her penmanship is beautiful and Ive received so many compliments about her striking white writing on our dark green envelopes. Her delivery was speedy and organized. We could not have asked for more beautiful work, or an easier process !! We HIGHLY recommend her !!
Absolutely amazing calligraphy!! So beautiful!! In addition, Barbara is extremely professional, responsive, FAST and so nice!! We used Belles Lettres Calligraphy for wedding invitation envelopes and plan to use her for event day calligraphy as well. Barbara exceeded our expectations!!
What a pleasure! Barbara is the best - so accommodating, so quick, and most important such beautiful work! We used Barbara for inner and outer envelopes for our wedding and I am truly so impressed with her work, I would easily recommend her to everyone and can honestly say she was my favorite vendor.

Barbara was a pleasure to work with from start to finish. She helped me select the paper and gave me tips on where to do so, returned everything promptly, and everything was beautiful and perfectly done. Having worked with some challenging vendors, it was such a pleasure to work with someone who was absolutely perfect in terms of service, quality, and value from beginning to end. Make it easy on yourself too and choose Belles Lettres for your wedding.
