The only rule for wedding invitations is that there are absolutely no rules. Whatever theme you have for your wedding or whatever your passions, they can all be reflected in your wedding stationery. However, getting the typography right can really elevate your invitations above the ordinary.
The first thing you need to remember is that your wedding invitations are conveying all the important information about your wedding day, so they need to be legible. The convention for wedding invites is that everything is spelt out in text so choose a font that is easy to read yet maintains the overall style you’re trying to achieve.
Look at the Capitals
You may have found a font you love, but a good test is to see how your names look together. Sometimes capital letters simply don’t work, particularly with more ornate handwriting inspired fonts, so ask for a print out before you decide on your typography.
Mix with Care
The vintage look is very on-trend for wedding invitations and depends on using an eclectic mix of fonts. Choose fonts that don’t battle each other – a traditional serif style paired with a script font can look beautiful, but keep the simpler font for the information you want to convey and then have fun with other details.
Simplicity is Key
Bold, modern fonts with sleek lines can be extremely eye-catching and can even replace images on your wedding invitation for a very contemporary and minimalist design. When choosing fonts, make sure they can be scaled for different uses and don’t lose definition when you scale them. At Colin Cross Printers we can help you make the right choice for your suite of wedding stationery.
Reflect Your Personality
With so many fonts to choose from, the typography you use for your wedding invitations can reflect not just your theme but your personality too. Whether you’re world travellers or party people, or if your wedding is fun or formal, you can use typography to reflect yourselves both as individuals and as a couple.
