12 Stunning Fonts That Will Make Your Invitations Wow
Posted on 11th September 2018
These 12 fonts will work perfectly on invitations for weddings, showers, anniversaries, holidays, etc.
Designing your own invitations is easier than you think and gives you the ability to make unique and personalized for your special event. Start with a graphic element and add your text, no graphic design degree required! I'll even link a perfect pairing font underneath to help simplify the process even more for you.
I also made sure each font I selected for this list is highly versatile and easy to read. My goal is for them to become your go-to list of fonts for several projects! Most of them come with lots of extra glyphs or fun extras too.
1. Oh Darling
Oh Darling is a creme de la creme hand-lettered calligraphy font with ethereal, adorable touch. It is perfect for branding, event invites, lovely Instagram posts. It includes 6 bonus predesigned logos. You will love them!
I would pair this with a very clean sans serif font like Oxford.
2. Adele Script
Adele Script is an elegant, smooth script font with character. I chose this because it looks like classic calligraphy yet is easy to read.
A classic serif font like Calgary would pair well with this for a romantic and traditional look.
Monttastic is a beautiful modern clean hand-lettering font typeface. This font will look gorgeous in all your designs, wedding invites, branding materials, logo's, t-shirt, poster, business cards, quotes and all projects.
The perfect font to pair with this is a clean and modern serif style font like Nathanos.
4. Beradon Script
Beradon Script is an elegant script font with more than 400 alternatives and
a bonus of 6 frames and 6 dividers.
I would pair a very simple sans font with this so it doesn't compete with the swashes and frames like Sinclaire.
Streetlight Script a new fresh & modern script with a handmade calligraphy style, decorative characters, and a dancing baseline! So beautiful on an invitation like greeting cards, branding materials, business cards, quotes, posters, and more!! Streetlight Script comes with 459 glyphs.
I would pair this with a happy sans serif font like Lucy Rounded.
6. Lovely Letters
Lovely Letters is a brand new hand-lettered script font! It's comes packed with a full set of upper and lowercase letters. The sans serif uppercase is a great compliment to the script lowercase. Lovely Letters font features:
- Full set of uppercase and lowercase
- Over 20 ligatures
- Beginning and end forms
- Numbers & punctuation
- Some multilingual support
This one already comes as a perfect pair!!
7. Lively Script
Introducing Lively Script, a fresh, bouncy, handwritten calligraphy font imbued with effortless elegance. Add a lively, handmade touch to your branding, crafting projects, wedding stationery, and beyond!
Lively Script includes seven alternate standard characters and over a dozen standard and discretionary ligatures, providing a truly handwritten look and feel. These can be accessed in the Glyphs palettes in programs like Adobe Photoshop or Illustrator (but if you don't have these programs, you'll still have access to all of the standard and international characters!).
I would pair this with the standard character of Beloved Sans. Don't be scared by the price for it, as you can see you get a ton of bang for your buck with all of the other options.
Fairytales Script is a beautiful handmade typeface, organic and dancing baseline with different swashes that can be applied to the beginning and ends of all lowercase.
I like that it looks like it was hand brushed onto the paper.

A modern calligraphy typeface, Olivia is both sophisticated and graceful and is an exclusive from The Font Bundles Store. Complete with 351 glyphs, you can use this font for multiple purposes such as Wedding Invitations, Greeting Cards, posters, wall hangings, gifts and much much more.
I would use Denver as the complementary font for this one.
Nicole Script is a new fresh & modern script with a bold hand-brushed lettering style and dancing baseline! This font looks great on personal branding, business cards, stamps, quote posters and greeting cards. And don't forget wedding season! This would be a gorgeous font for your design projects.
