Invitations serve as a wedding’s peephole. They set the tone for the event and give guests a sense of what to expect. For example, they give them an idea of their attire, how formal the event will be, and create an atmosphere that enhances their experience and wows them.
Designing with the correct typography is vital. Pairing fonts with the rest of the event design takes the wedding invitations to the next level. I always strive for the perfect mix of elegance and style. Starting with the essential invitation component — the couple’s names — I chose a fun and energetic typeface for Michelle & Steve. The hand-drawn feeling gives a personal touch, which was perfect for them. A bouncy script font, but not to the point where it looks too messy or casual. The smooth and relaxed sans serif font, with no extra flourishes, compliments the script font rather than taking away from their names. Their invitation is packed with personality yet is still clean and modern.
Knowing that curated paper goods act as an authentic ambassador, what signature elements will match your day’s vision and overall aesthetics?
Modern typography for a country club wedding invitation.
