They say don’t judge a book by its cover; however, you can judge a wedding by its invitations. Your save the dates and invitations are the first glimpses you’ll give your guests of your special day, so details matter. The font, design and layout communicate the formality, feel and theme of your nuptials. For this post, we’ll focus on font and what it says about you as a couple and your wedding. Are you formal and traditional? Free-spirited and adventurous? Dainty and proper?
SCRIPT: A script font oozes tradition and formality. Expect this to be a classy affair. And not all scripts are created equal, anymore. Playful variations of traditional cursive are majorly trending right now.
SERIF: Again, tradition, tradition, tradition. When you see a serif font, think sit-down dinner and black tie.
SANS SERIF/ALL CAPS: Modern and youthful, a sans serif font is indicative of a couple that is not afraid to be playful and make their own rules.
HANDWRITTEN-ESQUE: The handwritten look is perhaps the hottest trend we’re seeing in wedding stationary, giving off a personalized, casual and friendly vibe.
MIX OF SEVERAL FONTS: Expect this wedding to be part traditional, part modern and all fun.
