How do I select the right font for my wedding invitations?

Selecting the right font for your wedding invitations is an important decision, as it sets the tone and style for your special day. At Print Harbour, we understand the significance of this choice and are here to guide you through the process. Here are some key factors to consider when choosing the perfect font for your wedding invitations: 

Reflect the Theme and Formality

The font should match the overall theme and formality of your wedding. For a traditional and elegant wedding, classic serif fonts like Times New Roman or Garamond are ideal. For a more modern and relaxed affair, sans-serif fonts like Helvetica or a stylish script font can add a contemporary touch.


The primary purpose of your invitation is to convey information clearly. Choose a font that is easy to read. This is particularly important for the main body of the invitation where details like the date, time, and venue are listed. Script fonts can be beautiful but might be hard to read if used for smaller text.

Complementing Fonts

Consider using two complementary fonts: one for the main headings (such as the names and the title of the event) and another for the body text. This can add visual interest and hierarchy to your invitation. A common pairing is a script font for the names or headings with a simpler serif or sans-serif font for the body text.

Font Weight and Size

The weight and size of the font also play a crucial role. Make sure the font size is large enough to be easily readable but balanced with the overall layout. The weight of the font (light, regular, bold) can be used to draw attention to certain parts of the invitation.

Personal Style

Your wedding is a reflection of your personal style. If you have a particular font that you feel connected to or that resonates with your personal style or story, consider incorporating it into your invitation design.

Print Samples

Before finalizing the font, it’s a good idea to print out samples to see how it looks on paper. Sometimes fonts appear differently in print than on a screen, and this step can help you make a final decision.

At Print Harbour, we have a wide range of fonts and can assist you in choosing the perfect one for your wedding invitations. We’ll ensure that your invitations not only look beautiful but also reflect the essence of your special day.
