Tips for Pairing Wedding Fonts

Just like the couple’s compatibility is essential, so is the harmony among fonts. One crucial element to remember when it comes to wedding fonts is that they must compliment each other.

Contrast is Key

Balance fonts by playing around with the bold, italic and underlined settings to create an engaging contrast. A good rule of thumb is to also pair a decorative or script font with a simpler sans-serif font for balance and readability.

Stick to a Typeface Story

Choose a font family and stick with it for various items to ensure a cohesive look across your wedding ensemble. We suggest sticking to one or two typefaces for a polished feel.
