Since I seem to be on a stationary tangent this week: Should I match the font across all my stationary/paper goods or mix and match? My programs are set in Antique to keep them easy to read, but I want something fancier for the invites. I was thinking maybe Corsiva (the same font as my place cards), French Script, Vivaldi or Vladimir to keep with the Old World theme.

I think so long as your fonts are complimentary & you don’t have too many then you’re golden. I would say 4-5 fonts is pushing it, we’ve been using the same 3…. Personally I get bored looking at something with only one font….

I would use the same one for unity, or make sure that there is somewhere they are shown all together – titles in a script and description in something more legible – to me it looks messy or mismatched if they are different.
In marketing (branding) this is important so it’s kind of ground into me. Pet peeve: mismatched font.

The tips regarding fonts from this thread helped me a lot: http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/how-to-look-for-less-invitation-suite-long
To quote, “Use NO MORE than 3 fonts in the entire suite. I recomend ONE script, and a serif or sans-serif for the bulk of information. Scripts are not meant to be read for more than a few words to a sentance. Please use a legible font for the meaty info.”
Hope it helps!! After reading that thread’s first post I totally redid my initial invitation design 🙂

I did two fonts on my invites. One fancy script for titles (RSVP, our names, etc.) and one serif for the rest.

This is how the Antique & Vivaldi look together:

I was taught in layout & design to never use more than two fonts, and for large bodies of text to use a serif font. More than that and stuff definitely looks weird to me.
