Wedding planners we have a new name for you to add to your rolodex, Lisa Mavian, a Toronto calligrapher!
We have so many talented wedding suppliers in Toronto but could always use more calligraphers. When Lisa Mavian, of Post Calligraphy, showed us her work we wanted you to know about her.
Lisa is a graphic designer and self-taught calligrapher. For as long as she can remember she has always been attracted to letters, words, numbers and text. She describes her style as modern, based on classic forms.
Lisa has designed invitations, envelopes, table numbers, save the dates, gift tags, chalkboards, and is currently working on calligraphing a line of tea towels and napkins.
So if you’re looking for a fresh look to an old tradition, call Lisa.
Yesterday we featured wedding cakes, flowers and invitations inspired by the words, Sweet, Traditional and Elegant. Today we bring you Traditional, and Flirty, with designs created by some of Toronto’s top wedding suppliers.
Picking a word is a great way to start planning your wedding. The descriptive word will guide you to the right venue, the appropriate attire, and of course your cake, flowers and invitations.

Choosing a look for your big day can simplify planning tremendously — guiding everything from the menu to the centrepieces — but deciding on the right one isn’t easy. So we asked local wedding professionals for a little help.
For The Wedding Co. Magazine, we whispered a single word into the ear of 15 of Toronto’s top designers of cakes, invitations and flowers, and flashed them a colour palette for inspiration. Their task? To interpret the two elements and create an original design that reflects their own style.
When we grouped the stunning stand-alone creations together, every one made a beautiful and powerful statement. We hope you find an idea you love and can use as a springboard for creating the look and feel of your celebration.
Here are three groups, tune in tomorrow for two more.
