    I would recommend that you use a different script font, one that is more formal and elegant, to contrast better with your wonderful, small-cap font that you chose for your main text.

    In my opinion, the script that you’ve chosen is not quite elegant enough. To give you an idea of the look I would suggest, I will post the sample invitation (not our actual names or locations) showing the fonts that my DH and I used for our invitation suite and our wedding programs.

    I know that it’s not easy to see the words printed in the script font, because they’re hiding behind the ribbon. However, do you see what I mean?  This font is a more regal-looking script, and the one you’ve selected looks a bit more like someone’s handwriting.  However, if that’s the look that you prefer, then please do not allow my opinion to dissuade you.

    I like it overall, but do agree that you should change the font.

    I think they’re lovely just as they are. But I like a simple, clean look. I especially like the mix of fonts. Don’t change a thing!

    Just the font.

    @anonymouspioneer:  Well, if you love that script, then I would suggest you try making it one to two points larger (two may take up too much space), to help open it up a bit so that it has a stronger standing against the openness of the small caps.  Try that, and it may go a long way toward addressing what I am perceiving as an inequity between these fonts.
