I can’t see the image, but Champagne & Limousines is one of my favorite casual fonts!

My thoughts:

Remove the bold on the script (I’ve been told to never ever bold a script font)of your names, and make the font size bigger.

Is your wedding going to be casual or formal? From this invitation it gives off a casual feel.  If you are going for something formal, I would suggest changing the fonts all together.

I like the script font.  But the other font makes it look too casual, which I don’t think goes too well with a formal Catholic wedding.  I agree that the script shouldn’t be bold.

I’m using optimus princeps, I downloaded it from dafont.com for free and I love it.  It gives my invites more of a formal feel.  I don’t know how well it will go with your script but it doesn’t hurt to try.

I used Monterey on my invites and Cochin in all small caps for the text.

 

Also, I would change it to say “the marriage of their children” “Emily Rose AND Nicholas James”, not “to”.  Hope this helps!

That script and font worked well @ Jenirae!

yep, a serif font will make it less casual but not too formal looking
