So far in the Wedding Stationery Guide, we’ve reviewed the printing methods offered at Banter & Charm, learned a bit about invitation paper, and gone over ink color options. Now it’s time to start talking about the actual design and layout of the invitation, and since fonts are such an integral part of the design I thought we’d start there!
Today I’m going to review the font options available at Banter & Charm, then we’ll talk a bit more how you can personalize your invitation fonts later on.
There are hundreds of thousands of fonts out there, so to keep things simple, we’ve put together a catalog of our favorite fonts for wedding invitations. Other fonts are available though – so if you don’t see exactly what you’re looking for, please ask!
First up are serif and sans serif fonts. These styles are the workhorses – they are versatile, come in different weights and cases, and are ideal for large blocks of text when legibility is key. I recommend that you choose one serif or sans serif family to use for the main text throughout your wedding stationery.
Now we have some more casual script fonts. A little less embellished than the formal scripts, these styles tend to be easier to read and a bit more modern looking.
