As a millennial couple, we know that you want even the minutest element of your wedding to reflect your personalities. And that’s why you go ahead to take the effort of personalising everything, even your wedding fonts. The words that carry the news of your auspicious wedding will be read in that font and believe us when we tell you that the right one can make a lot of impact. When it comes to the task of picking them, there are a few things to keep in mind. So, start making notes:
1. Keep the wedding card design and font in sync
Regardless of whether you’re choosing theme-based invitation cards, laser-cut cards or digitally printed cards, your wedding font should complement it. The formal and traditional invites can have wedding fonts like Amatic SC, Cinzel, Lato Hairline, Anonymous Pro, Nunito Lite, Roboto Slab Thin and the like. When inviting your friends and close-circle people, you can use casual-looking fonts like Brusher, Architects daughter, Allura, Great Vibes, Sacramento, WC Mano Negra Bold and Gochi Hand.
2. Keep the font legible and simple
We know that you want your wedding invitation card to convey how outlandish your wedding is going to be. But don’t let your expectations cloud your judgement when selecting wedding fonts. Be practical and choose a font that is easy to read. Test out a variety of fonts, experiment with bold, italics, title case, sentence case and different spacing before making your final choice.
3. Choose the material of the paper wisely
Imagine a glossy pink paper having a black typewriter font on it. Wouldn’t look so good, would it? This is something you should keep in mind when selecting wedding fonts. Your invitation card material and wedding fonts should come out as the perfect pair. These days, apart from the usual glossy paper, parchment paper and matte paper, new paper materials have emerged. There’s recycled paper, handmade paper and linen paper for the green wedding couple, marble paper, mylar paper and glassine paper for those looking for something chic. Choose wedding fonts and invitation card material that are in sync with each other.
4. Sticking to your roots - regional wedding fonts
For those looking to give their invitation card a regional touch, why not go for wedding fonts in your mother tongue or a regional language that you want for your guests. Writing a Shlok in Hindi or having the wedding card matter in Tamil, for example, will give your cards a traditional touch. You can use Hindi fonts like Glegoo, Martel and Poppins, and for the regional ones, you can search online.
5. Mix and match
It’s your wedding fonts, pick as many as you please. Use some on your wedding invitations and stationery, and the rest for your photobooth, if you’re getting one, on the direction signs, on cards attached to wedding return gifts and wherever you want to place them. Remember, there are no rules to adding them. Just ensure that they go with your wedding style or theme. And if you can’t decide, ask the professionals. We’re sure your wedding invitation vendor would be happy to help you out with their expert advice.
