The biggest day of your life deserves to have everything thrown at it to ensure that it is nothing short of perfection. There’s no point spending all that money, designing a color theme, choosing all the right music, food, flowers and then hand scribbling out your invitations to send to your VIP guests!

Every touch point of your wedding is and should be an excuse to celebrate your love and to let your personality shine through. The devil is in the detail and so is the delight too. You can set the tone for the day itself, teasing to what the guests might expect to encounter on the big day, just by the what, when and how you communicate with them.

The font, graphic, tone, color palette and language you choose to use. These are all very much an overall part and parcel of conveying the importance of your unique day.

So let’s take a look at some of the beautiful fonts that you might choose to use and what kind of deeper messaging they will help to convey. There will undoubtedly be the perfect font out there for you and if not and you are a creative type or have friends who are, what better symbolism and memory for your special day than to have had your own wedding font designed!

20.Caffe Latte Download Font

The most important thing when you are selecting a wedding font is to either tie it to an overall theme or go for something that is an extension of your personalities.

Consider mixing and matching

You could also experiment by mixing and matching a couple of different fonts together – perhaps signifying you and your other half. One of you might be a modernist the other a traditionalist so why not put that across in your choice of fonts? Your guests will be impressed when they have their “Eureka” moment and realize that the fonts are a delightful representation of the two of you, ready to join together for the next exciting adventure in your life as a married couple.

A font can speak a thousand words

So don’t overlook the importance or the significance that the typeface you select for all your stationery will have. It is the glue that connects all the parts and can pull your theme together. Be that romantic, gothic, whimsical or something very modern, a carefully chosen font can speak a thousand words and tease to what might be in store on the day of your nuptials themselves. Think carefully and considerately about the wedding fonts you choose. Not only do you want them to make a perfect impression but also a very lasting and enduring impact. To be a beautiful and cherished memento and keepsake for years to come.
