As any June bride will tell you, it’s not too early to be thinking about spring nuptial invitations. If there is a wedding anywhere in your design future, here are some suggestions to inspire you.
Elegant scripts are stereotypically associated with weddings, from the days of engraved society printing. Biscotti was designed especially for Brides magazine as a fresh take on a traditional engraved script, while Novia provides a more formal interpretation.
A more lively (but no less elegant) atmosphere can be summoned with the calligraphic Sloop and all its alternate flourishes.
If scripts suggest the flow of a white satin gown, then crisp Modern serif styles like Benton Modern Display or Escrow evoke the elegance of a top hat, white tie, and tails — lending suitable sophistication to any formal invitation.

Among sans serifs, Nobel, with its elegant proportions, and Relay, with its slightly Deco undertones, are popular choices for a simple, unfettered approach.
