Choosing the right fonts for your Wedding Invitations

Selecting the right font or set of fonts for your invitations is quite crucial and just as important as choosing the right invitation wording! Here are my TOP TIPS for choosing the right fonts for your invitations:

  • Consider how different fonts give an invitation a different look and feel, and ultimately shape the impressions your guests will have for your wedding! If you’re having a formal or traditional wedding, electing some elegant and fancy cursive fonts may be appropriate, whereas if you are having a casual beach wedding – a more simple and uncomplicated font style may better suit your invitation.
  • The way a font looks is important, however it is vital that you do not overlook function– keep in mind that some fancy script fonts can be hard to read.  If  you have your eye on a beautiful fancy font, consider using this font only to highlight the bride and grooms names, and then choose a more simple and easy-to-read font for the rest of the invitation wording.
  • Don’t forget to select an appropriate font size. Having your invitation wording printed in a small font size may not be convenient for some of your guests, especially if they are older.
  • If you are having more than one font style on your invitation, consider how the various fonts you have chosen fit together. Do they compliment each other? Are they well-balanced? (the right balance will depend on the look you are trying to achieve).
  • Have a friend or family member look over your invitation before you have them printed. Ask them what immediately catches their eye and stands out for them. Some couples prefer to have their names as the stand-out element of the invitation, whereas others prefer to have their guest names emphasized. There is no right or wrong look – the most important thing is that you are happy with your choice!
