    I don’t hate the main font for either of them, but I’m not a huge fan of the font you’ve chosen for the names with the main font of the invites…. It looks odd, isn’t the easiest to read, and overall I just don’t care for it for a wedding invite. 

    I don’t really have a suggestion for you, as I don’t know what style of wedding you’re having, but I personally like the main font of the 1st one better.

    For me it is not so much the fonts themselves (I like them all), but that neither of the combinations seem to match. The font you have selected for your names is more fantasy, old english, etc and the other two are more 1920’s/ vintage America to me. I think you should try to match the fonts with your wedding style. If you are going for a  whimsical theme, then keep the name font and look for something old english or similar. If you are doing a more vinatge or hollywood glam style, then I would use one of the other two fonts and skip the middle/name font. Good luck!

    I like the font of number two with the font you want for your names better. However, based on what I know about you and your Fiance, I think number one fits with your personalities!

    May I ask why you are set on First Order as the font for your names?

    Edit: you answered that question while I was typing my reply.

    I agree with maybe trying another font that matches First Order better. Or can you use First ORder for the entire thing?

    @jules24chi: I agree.

    You should keep the LOTR font for the names, but pick a different font for the rest of the text.

    I totally see what youre trying to do with the LOTR theme…the name font is cool, I think you should use it throughout. The characters look almost identical to the ones seen in the LOTR books. The 2nd example is a great example of Moria inspired text, though Im not sure they go well together. I think you should stick with the LOTR font throughout 🙂

    This site has all the LOTR inspired fonts, which I swoon over, by the way.  I love your choice, but I do think the main body font in both your examples doesn’t quite match your theme.  I would try to download some of the fonts from the site and see if they fit better.  Maybe try the Rivendell one or Concerning Hobbits one?  Those seem more graceful and flowing and would stand out from the font for the names?

    Personally, I would do a more basic font for the rest of the text, which would allow your names to really stand out in the font you love. Try Garamond or High Tower Text (what I would personally pair with the font you have.

    Also, instead of doing the rest of the text in all caps, have you considered all lowercase? It seems to be a trend now, and I really like the look of it in invitations. Although that depends on the style and formality of the paper your invites are on.

    In any case, good luck!!

    @SleepingWithNuns: I’m no good at font sorts of things but I had to say, I love the LOTR font. I am totally nerdy enough to have thought “That looks like the font for there and back again!” before you said that it was supposed to look that way.

    How about something like this?

     

    I used the Ringbearer and Elven Common Speak fonts.  http://www.thehutt.de/tolkien/fonts.html

    Generally you want to pair a script font with a serif font or a sans-serif with a serif.  It’s hard to combine two scripts.

    Ok, I really like the one that was just posted, but I was going to suggest making the names larger. I think if you have different fonts and sizes, it will look a little more cohesive.
