@Adams_bee: I think I’d either use a light blue that matches the tones in the background, or a peachy parchment color — I think I also see a little of that in the background.

The ribbons and flowers of much of the invite would lead me towards a script font of some sort, but the stamp is a little bit more country chic. You definitely don’t want anything really blocky or boilerplate, because your invites are very feminine. Maybe try something like Monotype Corsiva, which has nice little flourishes to pick up on the curls in your stamp, but which is still easy to read?

Here are some free script fonts that are gorgeous: http://www.dafont.com/theme.php?cat=601

I particularly like Before the Rain and Respective. Why not try some of those out and see what looks best?

@Adams_bee: I agree with the PP that you should stick with a color tone that matches the rest of the invite.  The white sticks out, so something lighter maybe a lighter blue or purple?  These look really nice, and I can tell you’ve spent a lot of time on them.  Good job!

As far as fonts, I’m terrible with that.  I used dafont.com as well as 1001freefonts during my search.  You can usually type some of your words to see a preview before you download it, which really helps!
