Typography may not be the first thing that pops into your head when you think of weddings. However, the font you use for your invitations, place settings and table plan will actually have a big impact on your theme and how your guests view your wedding day. When they receive your invitations, the typography will inform their initial impression of how your day will look and feel.
“Essentially, the style of your invitations sets the tone for the entire event – from save the date cards, to escort cards, invitation suites, your wedding ceremony program and even table place names and menus.”
To ensure your chosen font does your wedding justice, take a look at our pick of the top typography trends for 2018.
Giving your invitations, place cards and table settings a fantastic personal touch, handwritten text could be the perfect way to put your stamp on your wedding stationery. Work with a designer or printer to transform your handwritten text into a digital format and then have it printed onto your invitations and other accessories. If your handwriting isn’t up to scratch, have your other half act as scribe, or ask an artistic friend to do the honours.
Stylish and elegant, vintage typography is a fantastic look for your wedding stationery. Use a typewriter font to give your invitations a retro feel or invoke images of 1940s and 50s shows and events using a classic circus style font and aesthetic.
If you and your other half are both into sci-fi, why not indulge your passion with a futuristic-style font for your wedding accessories? Classic computer type will help to lend your stationery the futuristic feel you’re after while giving your guests a small hint about what they can expect on the day. The good thing about this style of font is that it’s fun and characterful, helping to give your wedding a touch of personality and get your guests in the mood.
Calligraphy is the perfect typography choice for a traditional wedding. You can either use one of the existing calligraphy fonts available online or you can hire an artistic scribe to write the text out for you. One of the benefits of hiring someone to do the work is that you’ll end up with a completely unique font, giving you something you can treasure and enjoy long after the last of the wedding cake has been gobbled up.
