Best Free Wedding Fonts

By Melissa

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?

If you’re not sure how to add a new font, there’s loads of tutorials online.

This is definitely one of the most popular free fonts out there for wedding invitations. A totally pretty script that’s classic, yet modern.

Dancing Script

I just came across this gem a couple weeks ago. It’s definitely one of my new favorites.

Century Gothic

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.

Carpenter Script

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.

Splendid Ornamenty

Another pretty one for a more formal event.

Totally fun!

Sweet, but be careful about the large spaces between words when using this font.

CAC Champagne

Easy to read and entirely classic.

Font choice is so important! Have you seen the online campaigns to ban comic sans? I hate that font!

my honest answer on December 05, 2011

    Can’t agree looks like a font targeted to 7 year olds!

Awesome! Thank you.

Love! Thanks Melissa- I’m a total font addict too :) Not sure if I’m doing something wrong but the “carpenter” font wasn’t working for me when I tried downloading it…

    Hi Kat –

    weird! Someone else said they had an issue but when I went to download it, it worked. I’ve added a new link. Hopefully this one works. Let me know if it doesn’t.

    It’s the first one on this link:
