I''m DYI my invitations and found a good deal on the paper. I''m going to attach 4 different options for the fonts because I can''t make up my mind! I was hoping you girls would help me out
First off, here is what the paper will look like....

IMO - I prefer the cursive font of #4 to go with the non-cursive font of #1

Cute invites!!

I vote with these two.
If not this option then I would do #1 as it is.

I totally, 100% agree. I love the script of 4 and the block print of 1 or even 2...

I''m wondering if it looks funny...maybe it''s just me. Do you see the "o''clock" part how the ''c'' and ''l'' aren''t spaced enough and it looks like a ''d'' ??

For a more casual wedding, I would go with #1 as is, the playfulness of both typefaces compliment each other well IMO.

If you want the invites to have a more formal feel I like the script (the names) from #4 with the text from #2, or any other serifed typeface. To me the script seems out of place with a more casual sans-serif face like the ones from 1,3 & 4.

True....I do think it would make the invite more formal with script of #4 and the text of #2 - try that out - it may give the invite a more formal feel - is that what you''re going for?

I like the more "fun" type I guess you would call it, but not too casual. I was thinking maybe #3 because it has the cursive/script type for the names, but not too formal, somewhere in the middle...and the other text is more on the fun side too. It doesn''t look too "kiddy" does it?


How does the wording sound? We''re also having the outside ceremony and the reception at the same venue, do I need to include this or am I okay? I don''t want to confuse the guests...but I''m also trying to avoid making reception cards if possible.

I most prefer #3, it''s more elegant than the others but not difficult to read like #4. A good balance of easy to read and formal.

Your invitation looks formal (and it''s so incredibly cute!!), so I think your font should follow suit. I, personally, would like to see the cursive of #4 with the block of #2. The other fonts look too casual.

#1 is my favorite for a casual wedding
#4 for a more formal affair

After reading what you had to say about how formal you''d want the invites to be I would go for #1.

I see what you mean about the o''clock thing where the "c-l" looks like a d! My brain still reads "oh-clock" though.

I like the names on #2... but the font of #1...
I also like the names on #4 and the font on #2...

depending on the formality of the event.
