If you are the kind of person who has an eye for detail, you’ll know that wedding invitation suites are elaborate works of art in and of themselves. One of the important components of these products is the typography chosen to communicate the details of your wedding day - or in layman's terms, the font. With the rise in the popularity of calligraphy, the number of fonts you can choose from are increasing every day - here are our favourites from this year’s trending types.

Script typefaces, influenced by the fluidity and personalised feel of handwriting, are immensely popular choices for wedding invitations. They evoke that romantic vibe associated with the kind of heartfelt letters lovers wrote in the pre-Facebook era. These days the trends in wedding invitation fonts have veered away from overly ornate formal script fonts towards more modern, legible, but still effortlessly dreamy calligraphy fonts like the Lovely Script Font pictured in the image above.

This exuberant brush pen script font is named ‘Loving Saskia’ and is an example of a more modern font with an appearance that looks like the letters have been written with a wet brush rather than a pen nib.

The Perfect Charm is a script font with beauty and balance, and enough charisma to steal the limelight in your wedding suite.

More casual fonts like the one in the image above can be perfect on invites to urban weddings. This wedding stationery suite, for example, was for a wedding that was held at a brewery. The font takes the romance of cursive and infuses it with a chic, minimalist touch by incorporating some non-connecting letter elements and cleaner lines/form.

Indulge your inner old-school romantic and go for a serif typeface. These typefaces originated from the Romans when words were carved into stone, and are still very much wedding invitation favourites in 2018.

These fonts convey a sense of permanence and elegance and you’ll need little else on your invites for them to have a stunning effect.

Take the invite above for example. The minimalist botanical accent alone complements the serif font for a complete, graceful, and natural overall feel.

Sans-serif fonts, as a general rule, have less variation in line width and are typically used for headings rather than body text. This makes it fitting to use them in making a statement on your wedding stationery. Sans-serif fonts exude minimalism, so are a great way to keep things from looking visually overcrowded when you’re going for a more busy background like in this blue marble suite.

Sans-serif fonts can also really bring that contemporary edge to invitation suites. The modern typography in this Montreal Suite by Three Little Words, for example, is perfectly suited for the overall urban aesthetic.

Choosing the right music for your wedding is almost as important as choosing the right venue, the right dress...
Does the band take requests? Do you have to provide them with dinner? Can the bride sing a song?
