I am a self-labelled typography nut.
When it came down to creating my own wedding invitations, programs and other stationery, I literally spent days scrounging the internet for the perfect font. Specifically, I was looking for one that would be modern/contemporary, but still pretty and frilly enough because it was a wedding. The fact is, the right font says it all and likely it’s almost as important as the graphics or pictures you include in your stationery. It can tell a guest immediately if the wedding will be fun + laid back or black tie formal.
And while there are numerous fonts out there that you can purchase, I thought it might be nice to share some fonts I’ve come across that are FREE. We love free right?
This is definitely one of the most popular free fonts out there for wedding invitations. A totally pretty script that’s classic, yet modern.
I just came across this gem a couple weeks ago. It’s definitely one of my new favorites.
Likely, your computer will already have this font. It’s my all-time favorite when it comes to making contemporary styled stationery. For my own wedding stationery, this is the font that I used, although I chose to write all my text in caps.
This one’s got the curls. It’s a fun and sweet font.
While I love this font, avoid using this for large amounts of text. It’s quite stretched out, so it’s often hard to read. However, if you’re using it in a large format or just for your wedding names, this is definitely a pretty one.
Another pretty one for a more formal event.
Sweet, but be careful about the large spaces between words when using this font.
Easy to read and entirely classic.
I hoped that helped! Don’t hesitate to share some of your favorites by leaving a comment for this post. If you have any questions, let me know!
