Fonts for Invitation Design-thumb

Designing an invitation suite for a wedding, birthday party, corporate gala, or another special event? Typography and fonts will play a key role in your design! Fortunately, there are plenty of beautiful free fonts for you to choose from. We've collected a few of our favorites below.

Script Fonts

A scripted font conveys elegance. Use your cursive font for larger text on your invitation (such as bride and groom names, the birthday girl or boy's name, or other headers in your content) and select a readable serif or sans serif font for the body text. Using cursive for the whole invite can be an eyesore!

Priscilla | Everything Holiday | Playlist | Frutilla

Handwritten Fonts

Handwritten fonts can convey a variety of things depending on your font choice. But they are usually a great way to lend a more personal or laid-back vibe. The "Feel My Heart" font is very sentimental.

Pea RoxyGirl | Feel My Heart | Shorelines | Luna

Serif Fonts

Serif fonts are classic, easy-to-read, and never go out of style. Choose a modern serif font to prevent your invites from looking too dated.

Sans Serif Fonts

Sans serif fonts are great for designs that are clean, ultra-modern, or minimalist.

Pro Tip: Selecting Body Text

Serif fonts tend to be just slightly more legible as body fonts on printed materials, while sans serif fonts tend to work better for body fonts on digital materials (like webpages). Keep this in mind when designing.

It's also important to remember that a font that looks beautiful as a headline might not work well for body text. Be sure to read through your final design to ensure that it's both beautiful and legible!
