Paris is definitely my favorite. I love how elegant yet still casual it can be. Classic and cute. It's perfection. (I'm already married... this would be a gift to a friend who is allowing me to be her planner to help jumpstart my career.)

AmyJean said...

I think i like london... although all three are great! they are fun and modern and would definitely give a personal touch :)

holly p said...

I love Paris! The city, and the writing style :) This would be perfect, as we are just starting to put together our invites!

tashahart7 said...

I'm lovnig Paris. Aside from traveling there numerous time. I alas have yet to have my invites address, considering I need then out very soon. This would bea a great help for myself !

Maria said...

I love the Paris one! I think its great how its elegant with just a touch of whimsy.

Erica said...

They are all absolutely amazing but the one that fits my personal style is London. My fiance and I both studied abroad there and while we aren't having a straight up theme we definitely have touches and details of things that we loved about London. Having this calligraphy on our envelopes would be a great start to having guests understand our wedding style.

Jenny.Lee said...

Left you a little something on my blog!

elizabeth said...

Oooo... London! So fun and fanciful! Just the feeling we want to have at our wedding. The envelope calligraphy would set the tone perfectly!

Amy said...

I like Paris. It's very classy and lovely.

Meghan M said...

I love London. It is the perfect blend of classic and modern styles. They would look so pretty with my invitations. I am having the invitations printed but DIYing the RSVP & reception cards. My whole theme for the wedding is to have classic style with a modern twist. With the economy we are trying to find creative but classy projects these envelopes would be a great match!

Andrea Naugle said...

I love London. Kind of sentamental about the city anyway since my family moved there a few years back, and it's become my home away from home.

nomnomnom said...

I would absolutely have to have London! It would definitely go with the modern chic style of my pocketfold invitations.

FFT Storytellers said...

I heart London--the writing, and the city!!!

Alison said...

Paris, hands down. It's fun but still elegant and has a touch of whimsy to it.

Sampoorna said...

I loved all the three but my favourite among them would be Paris!!!!!!!! I loved the caligraphy for its elegance combining the old classic style of writing with a modern touch. Its like this thing which you think is at arm's distance yet you can't reach for it.........hope you got me!!!!!!!

Thanks for dropping by............

Keep posting wonderful posts!!!!!!!

Love

Julia said...

I LOVE London!! so whimsical but classy at the same time. I love Blissfull's new look, I bet the new business is going to go great

seanna said...

We (my fiance and I) would choose the New York. Its simple and neat, and won't draw any attention away from the amazing invitations we had designed by a close friend. Plus...we're dreaming to visit NYC one day!

Courtney said...

I just adore the London style. Just enough flair without being over the top. What a lovely addition this would make to our invites!

mblowery said...

I would most definetly choose Paris! It is elegant, timeless, and feminine looking, without being too over the top. It would go beautifully with my outdoor "rustic elegance" theme!

Ashley said...

Paris is my favorite. It's not too fancy, but still looks elegant.

mismikado said...

I'm really digging Paris b/c I feel it matches our wedding theme best. Since we are going with a "1930's Lower-Middle Class Affair" we will have a level of elegance presented in a simplified diy feel. Paris really channels that for me. Elegant with a hint of modern touch.

Sarah Elizabeth said...

I like both London and Paris, but Paris is my favorite. #1: It's my favorite city in the world, #2: the font is fancy without being too stuffy

Christie said...

The Paris is absolutely beautiful. It is very elegant, yet it has a slight bit of whimsy to it that I love. :-)

Nicole-Lynn said...

The London Calligraphy is beautiful! I would love to win this!

Chris :: cisforcharmed said...

i of course love all 3... but if you're making me choose, it would have to be paris. it's just so yummy looking. (if calligraphy can actually look "yummy") ; )

Gabrielle said...

I really love Paris! It is very clean looking :)

Katie said...

I am definitely for London. It has just the right amount of personality and curliness! :)

Abby said...

I really love the London -- so beautiful. If only my own handwriting could be so lovely! Plus, it's a nod to where we're considering going on our honeymoon! :)

Eile said...

I just love London, It is easy to read but has the same whimsy and fun as my wedding. It goes so well with teardrop wedding invites that I am going to get, it is just perfect!

This is such a great give away! I just love the blogasphere, everyone helping everyone with great ideas and fun giveaways! Thanks

Eile

Michelle said...

I am smitten over the London. Perfect mix of modern and traditional. And so much better looking than my messy handwritting.

KerriJune said...

The london is definitely my favorite! It is fun...but still has a very classic feel to it!

Marie said...

I would choose London because I love the style and I got engaged in London! Thanks for the giveaway!

mtlhome said...

I think Paris is my favorite! I love the classy look...

Thanks!
Christine

Ghenet said...

This is a tough decision but I think I'd go with Paris. It's elegant, but has personality, and my fiancee and I traveled to Paris together and loved it! My second pick would be London.

Lyssachelle said...

The London is definitely my favorite. So swirly and pretty!

ewigger said...

I'm a fan of London! It would fit in perfectly with our Late-summer, farm/Indian explosion celebration. Trust me, it would look awesome.

Sarah said...

I'd select New York... if only I could do calligraphy and write this nicely!

Amber said...

I love the New York! It's simple and modern and unique!

MaryKat said...

Paris would be beautiful on my baby blue envelopes!

Elizabeth said...

I would choose Paris hands down! It's simple, feminine, and timeless. In fact, it is exactly how my Grandma Dot used to write. It reminds me of a time before snail mail.

Molly said...

I love London! :-)

Megan said...

I am in awe of people who can use a pen this well!
I love Paris--it would give our modern invitations the perfect feminine touch.

angelique said...

I absolutely ADORE PARIS...so chic, romantic, simple, but stunning!

klutzzygrl said...

Paris takes the (wedding) cake, hands down. We're getting married in a fantastic barn in North Carolina, and this brings together the perfect about of whimsy and elegance that we're trying to achieve. It doesn't hurt that this is exactly what my handwriting looks like... in my head. Sigh.

Izzy22 said...

I Love the London writing style. It's fun and goes with the laidback fun party theme of our wedding.

Nonaurbiz said...

I would like the London style because it's modern and funky yet still looks classy!

Lindsey Elisabeth said...

London would be beautiful on our handmade invite envelopes! It's so fun and playful but still beautiful. What a wonderful prize this would be to win!

EmilyAnn said...

They are all really beautiful! I think that I like the London the best though!

Jalila said...

I love Paris! its elegant and classy...everything I hope for my wedding to be :)

Katherine H. said...

I'd definitely pic Paris!

Cookie said...

This is a very hard choice because they are all so great, I would definitely go with the London though if I MUST choose only one.

Allison said...

They're all so cool, but Paris is my favorite!

brucklin said...

They're all so quirky and modern but I must say the New York is my hands down favorite. Its just so clean and simple, exactly like our wedding is going to be! Plus we're from NY but having our wedding elsewhere so I'd get a total kick out of using a NY font even if nobody else gets it! :)

Ashlee said...

I really LOVE the New York style. It's so new and fresh looking. We're getting married in my small hometown of 297 people and I've been trying to add some much needed quirky aspects to my wedding. Having this on my invites would be AMAZING!

Saraherin12 said...

I LOVE Paris. Its elegant and clean and would coordinate great with our wedding.

Meghan said...

This is a true art form. I love the New York style. We've been thinking a lot about using art deco design details throughout our June 2010 wedding at an historic mansion in Rhode Island featured in the Great Gatsby film. The New York script encapsulates these ideas with a thoroughly modern twist. Brava!

Trisha said...

I'm in love with London! It was a difficult choice though, because all of the styles are so pretty and unique. I am designing our wedding invitations (or trying to) and this would complete the look we are going for so well!

Sara said...

How funny! I just bookmarked swoonoverit.com yesterday. I LOVE London. It it were in my budget, I would have my envelopes addressed in that style in a heartbeat. I hope I win!!!

Candice said...

Oh boy, the Paris would be the perfect compliment for our invites! Our wedding style is vintage/bohemian French, and Paris matches that tone perfectly. A match made in heaven, really!

Hanako66 said...

What a fabulous prize...I am the planner for my friend's wedding...this would be lovely!

I love London!

Tessa said...

Loving Paris... how spaced apart it is. It seems effortless, breezy and romantic, so fitting with the casual atmosphere I'm hoping to create at my wedding. I like how different it is from conventional calligraphy that can tend to be stiff... a fresh departure from the norm! Thanks!

Mary-Kate Hopkinson said...

London calling.....love it! Would look great with my designer fiance's self-letterpressed invites!

Bridechka said...

They are all awesome but New York stole my heart right from the beginning, great giveaway!

Jaima said...

I love the London. Very whimsical, just the look we are going for!

FeedYourSoulMoreNYourFaceLess said...

We would go with Paris. We are stopping there on our European tour honey moon. The writing also reminds me of my mother's. Swoon is right.

Jack and Anne said...

I've fallen head over heals for PARIS. A true lover of all things French, this would be a perfect fit for our wedding. What a fun give-a-way!

chandra said...

My favorite is the London style. Totally digging those maps and Tshirts too!

Mary said...

They are all great but London is fabulous. It incorporates the fancy-ness of swirls and loops, but is still stylish, cute and readable.

Heather said...

The London style is the perfect mix of formal and whimsy.

tai1or-m2de said...

they are all so lovely but i will have to choose "the new york". lovely lovely work.

thank you.

kim said...

I love New York! So simple but so lovely. :)

Amanda said...

They're all really fantastic, but for my wedding I would choose the Paris style! It's simple but still romantic and fun, which is exactly what I'm going for with my wedding!

heybuddyleigh said...

London is my pick! We are getting married in the Caribbean and the style is fun, playful and relaxed, just like our beach wedding will be!

What a great contest - Thank you!

Megan said...

I'm really liking the London! It's great.

T said...

Paris is perfect for my wedding. It truly is romantic and effortless. I have been dreaming of including calligraphy on my wedding paperie but have been hesitant due to the extra cost and my tight budget. It's great to see that SwoonOverIt is so affordable for us brides that love beautiful penmanship. Thanks for hosting such a great giveaway!

Jess said...

Of course it is hard to choose between all three because they are all lovely in their own way. For our wedding though, Paris is perfect. We want our wedding and the process to be as stress free as possible, and Paris makes beautiful penmanship look easy. If only such beautiful calligraphy and the wedding process were so effortless as the Paris makes it look! At the same time, we want our wedding to be elegant and timeless. Although Paris looks effortless, the penmanship has a special grace to it. We are having our wedding at the Farmhouse Inn in Madison, Ga. and I believe that Paris is a great reflection of what we want our wedding to be a reflection of- a laid back affair, with a touch of romance and elegance. Thanks so much for a wonderful blog and a wonderful giveaway. It is appreciated!

Miss Eve said...

Oh so gorgeous!

Christy said...

I really like the London. It's fancy enough, but still perfectly clear enough for everyone to read.

Hal said...

I love them all, but London would be perfect as my fiance is English and it would be a wonderful homage to the city we lived in together for two years! All of the "swoon over it" calligraphy is beautiful- thanks for giving us a look at all of her wonderful work!

gooblythe said...

I love the London calligraphy. It's incredibly romantic!

prideeinpynk said...

I would choose London. Not only because it is a beautiful style (and my FH is OBSESSED with fonts and writing styles because he is a designer), but also because right before we became engged we spent the entire summer in the city of London. For us it is our city of love. <3

A.Mountain.Bride said...

A Haiku

London I adore,
you're whimsical yet refined,
like my love and me.


I like the London best for our forest wedding...it's a playful yet elegant font and it's just perfect.

Jes P.

Mollie D said...

New York- casual and creative- like my wedding (hopefully). I have terrible handwriting and am freaking out about this aspect, I did NOT want to have to use labels! Fingers crossed!

Michelle @ My Wedding Report said...

I love the London script! And it's even more perfect since I lived in London for a year and miss it dearly.

Alison said...

I'm in love with the New York one!! It's exactly our style - it's like it was designed just for us! We're planning on just emailing invites to save costs, but something like this would definitely change my mind (especially since it would make sending out real ones a little less expensive).

Jess said...

i love the New York! It's how I would make my handwriting if i could... :)

blushingjoy said...

Am loving the London style, so elegant and stylish yet clear and readable - it's also perfect as my fiance is from the UK and we recently spent time over there!

Would love to have that on our invitation envelopes!!

Miss Rye Bread said...

I definitely love the Paris!
We're living out of the country right now, so it's so hard to coordinate things for our wedding!
Plus we're on a budget - a big fraction of our wedding funds will go to flying us back to the states for the wedding. We're making the invitations right now, but I still don't know how we're going to have them addressed - it would certainly cut into our travel home funds to pay for calligraphy. :(

I hope we win!

sara-grey said...

Mais oui c'est Paris!

BaltiBride said...

London. . .it's the best.

Dallas Shaw said...

OK- so I love checking out these kinds of things for my work. Don't know it I can enter but I'd love for her to do New York on my new press kits (instead of wedding invites). I put alot of money into them and I think the press would love her writing!

Jadey 0:-) said...

Oh How I wish I could write like this! All three are absolutely gorgeous. But the London takes it for me by far. The curls give it thst romantic feel that just feels warm and inviting.

Liz said...

Paris is divine.
I love how 'art nouveau' it looks. This would help to pull together my parisian theme since we're having our reception in Maxim's, which is an exact replica of the one in Paris. It also happens to be our honeymoon destination. Your caligraphy would be the icing on the cake... I mean invite. :)

chicncheap said...

Paris is lovely, whimsical, and cute - so me!

I would love to have this personal touch on my invitations. That and my maid of honor would be spared. :)

Kelley at My Island Wedding said...

They are all really beautiful and original... put it up on the site (sorry so late...)

Best of luck to all that enter!

p.s. what's a faux wedding?

Brianna said...

I would definitely go with the Paris; beautiful and simple, like I hope our wedding will be...

Jenn said...

I love the New York. We got engaged there it would be cute to have a font named after our engagement city!

s said...

I'm from new york, but I love the Paris!!

Sarah said...

The London is definitely my favorite! The look we are going for with our wedding is both elegant yet whimsical, and I feel like this style captures that essence perfectly! We are also planning to design our own invitations (my fiance is a photographer/graphic designer), so it would be great to have a part of the invitation process taken care of, anyway!
