Whether you are creating your own unique wedding invitation design or you are hiring someone to help with the creative process, you will want to consider a few things when you pick your fonts. A quick search online will bring you to literally thousands of fonts that are available for personal or commercial use.
When selecting your font make sure to consider:
- Does the font choice add to or take away from your wedding theme?
- Is the font legible? Keep in mind that some fonts may look great to your eyes, but sometimes poeple have difficulty reading highly-scripted or thin fonts.
- Should you use accent fonts to break up the design? A great way to highlight names or even your wedding date is with an accent font that will stand out from the rest of the information.
Looking for a specific font for your wedding invitations can be a daunting task. We have compiled a list of choices that are frequently requested by our clients.
