Every Face Tells A Story
I used to lecture in typography at Uni - that is, the study of type. It's something that I'm passionate about–a gorgeous typeface can send me into a spin. Have you ever considered how each typeface has a personality all to itself - it doesn't take much training to know what certain faces are saying...
Splendid - formal and elegant
Mrs Eaves - classic and understated
Inspiration - relaxed and inviting
Bayer Sans - contemporary and bold
Therefore, the typeface you choose for your wedding stationery is really important as it will instantly convey a message. It will let your guests know, at a glance, the style and level of formality planned for the big day.
Take a moment to consider what typeface speaks best for you. There are countless websites devoted entirely to fonts - try My Fonts, P22, Emigre or Archive Type - all incredible sources of inspiration (well, I think so anyway!).
