Wedding Invitation Fonts

Sep 21 2011

Fonts–they’re expressive and moody in a good way and in a very understated, clever sort of way too. The right ones will give your wedding invitation the finishing flair it needs to render the style and tone you want for your wedding. As important as color and custom wording, the most fitting fonts, can change the direction of your design from formal to casual or … to vintage or destination, etc.

Here are four fonts on the same invite design with each font giving off a distinct–albeit subtle–feel. From left to right:

#1) Formal & Fanciful. I used ITC Isadora Bold style on Robin & Michael. The fancy bold type gives off a stately look.

#2) Casual & Modern. Using Mary Helen on Robin & Michael, the open style of the type, feels contemporary & fun.

#3) Funky & Offbeat. With Bossa Nova style on the third, the feel is quirky and unique- perfect for a non-traditional couple.

#4) Feelin Jamaican. Love the chunky relaxed feel of Immi Five O Five on the last invite. Destination wedding anyone?

Which one is your favorite?

  2. I’m a complete sucker for FeelScript. I used it for my wedding because it was the closest to calligraphy I could get. 😉 I’ve been obsessed since!
