I'm going to use the Merriment suite in my first example. This design uses only one font, but the type is set at an angle (although it can be changed to straight across if you prefer!). The original design features Script 3 from Banter & Charm's font guide. It's a sweet, calligraphy inspired script with loopy flourishes.
Now let's look at the same design using a different font. Option 1 is shown with Hand Drawn 1 . This script is also calligraphy inspired like the first. It's a little more casual and rustic, but overall the design still has a similar feel to the original.
Option 2 uses Formal Script 3 - a more flourished and formal script font than the original. Now the design is feeling more elegant and traditional, but it still works well. It's also important to note that the text is somewhat harder to read because this script is fairly ornamental.
Hope wedding invitation, using different script fonts for the names and venue, but the font for the main text stays the same. Each version is subtly different than the other, but they all have the same sweet, romantic feel.
Next time I'll be sharing some tips on selecting fonts for your invitation suite!
