Know what fonts you like and why. Know their names. Use them!!!! Don’t be afraid to ask a designer what fonts are used in your invitations. This should be a font that is used repeatedly throughout your wedding in some way. Don’t choose one font, chose a variety that coordinates well together. Don’t feel married to a traditional script font. Chose something that reflects the day you want. Use a casual font for a casual wedding, and a formal font for a formal wedding. Easy right?
Use PDF’s!!! There are many resources, such as Etsy and Creative Market that sell PDF’s. These items are professionally designed and you print them on your own. They are very budget friendly and are a great option for Bridal Showers and Bachelorette Parties. Your friends will thank you for considering their wallets, and you will get a beautiful product that relates back to the rest of your wedding.
