For the Traditionalist: Wedding Script Fonts

Script, cursive and handwritten fonts are firm favorites for wedding stationery, and with good reason. Able to give a romantic and elegant mood to designs, they also work beautifully for setting the names of the couple. 

From simple brush scripts to ornate calligraphy styles, discover our selection of the best wedding script fonts below.

Pro tip: Team a script or cursive font with a clean, minimal sans serif for a balanced font pairing. The romantic mood of a script font will be tempered and made modern and stylish with a simple sans serif like Magdelin or Liber.

1. Qindom

A simple and striking brush font which retains the legibility of text, Qindom is a hard-working and versatile script font that would work just as well for rustic invitations as more traditional and formal stationery.

For the Modernist: Modern Wedding Fonts

Whether you’re planning a ceremony in the city or simply feel that ornate or traditional fonts are not your style, these modern wedding fonts will help to give your designs a more contemporary edge. 

Pro tip: Some sans serifs can lack romance and emotion, but you can inject more romance into the style by using decorative borders and metallic foiling or by pairing a sans serif with a script font or serif typeface. 

6. Enriq Round Sans

This rounded sans serif has a hand-crafted style that lends it a cheerful and fashionable personality. Reminiscent of 1930s sans serif type styles, this font would also work beautifully for creating wedding logos or place settings.

For the Old Soul: Vintage and Rustic Wedding Fonts

If you adore the design styles of eras past or are perhaps planning a wedding with a historic theme, these vintage-flavored fonts will be sure to give an air of old-world romance to your wedding stationery. 

Pro tip: Vintage fonts can be given a more authentic feel by overlaying textures or printing your invitations onto more rustic and unrefined paper stock. Look for materials that add purposeful imperfections to your designs, such as grainy textures, discoloration or fluted edges, to maximise the vintage mood. 

12. Hamilton Font Family

Complete with a serif, sans serif and script, this comprehensive font family allows you to recreate an authentic vintage design. Inspired by old maps and wine labels, Hamilton has plenty of hand-painted texture and unique quirks to help your invitations to feel as if they were created in a bygone decade.
