FREE Whimsical wedding fonts

Since I made my own wedding stationary, I’ve become quite the font-o-holic – which truly is a wonderful past time by the way.
The web is a superb resource for free fonts which you can download with a few clicks and then use for signage, wedding papers, guestbook, favour labels, your wedding website or whatever you feel like.

Even if you have already sourced your wedding stationery, you should definitely consider the fonts order for you and your groom to get the look that goes with your theme and style preference.

Design-nerds like me think it adds personality and interest to the vital design elements of your wedding, which can make a great deal of difference, how arbitrary it may sound!

In my own quest for wedding stationary inspiration, I did some research to see what typography awesome-ness the internet can provide. Adobe InDesign or Photoshop are not too difficult to learn, there are even online tutorials for beginners such as this one. And with simple tools you can be the designer of your own stationery!

When experimenting with graphic wedding design, try not to use too many different types, or it might look jumbled. Simplicity and cohesion gives an elegant impression and is more readable. Therefore, choose 3 fonts max per design.
You can always vary the fonts by using different sizes, bold or italic, some upper case and some lowercase.

I made this example just for you. I have very little training in graphic design, but it wasn’t too hard – I think you can do it too!

This invite template is free for your personal use if you leave a comment and email address in the comments field below.

I have used: I Love Glitter, Moon and Abraham Lincoln.
What I like about this kind of unconventional invite design is that it is modern, fun and full of character, with its cute whimsical twist.

I do want to dearly thank We Lived Happily Ever After for the beautiful free rustic graphics.

If you use a script font, don’t use more than one. Same with serif and sans serif fonts (serif is the little curl or foot at the ends of the letter) – choose one of each for a clutter-free typography that is both pleasing on the eye and easy to read.

I think at some point I might create a series of these for you cool chicks to download for free (so remember to follow this blog if you haven’t already – click the follow button in the right sidebar), but here you have a taster, and a collection of fabulous fonts to use in your wedding: signs, stationary, other printables that you choose.

I hope to have sparked your creative plugs – if I have please leave a comment below or even send a picture 🙂

    • Hi Rachel, thank you for stopping by! And thank you for reminding me that I have not left a guide in my post for those new to typography. It is not very difficult – these fonts are all available for free download from various font portals around the web. A few that I can recommend are 1001fonts.com, dafont.com and fontsquirrel.com, but there are several more. The websites above are tried and tested sources.
      The quickest way might still be to search “*font name you want to download* free font downoad” in your favorite search engine.
      Once you have found your font, find the Download button and click it.
      Then go into your Downloads folder, open the zip file with the fonts name and double click OpenType format file (OTT)- there might be Truetype(TTT) also but if there is an option, rather choose OpenType as it is more modern and robust.
      Click the Install button, it should only take a few seconds to install – and then the font should appear in your text-processing programs such as Office and Adobe.
      Let me know how it goes – good luck!
