I have a whole bunch of different fonts I downloaded if you want me to send them to you let me know your email address.  I used to have a website that I could host them on but I don’t anymore.

I had no idea which one I wanted so I got them all and tried each one out with the look of my invites.

I used two that I downloaded for free that I loved. If you google them by name they should come up:  Trajunus (which is a print) and Baroque Script (which is cursive).  I really liked how they looked and have gotten tons of compliments on them.  They are being used basically on every piece of paper I DIY for our wedding!

I second the dafont.com suggestion – they have a ton of really nice ones!  We’re using Windsong for our script font.

First- I love your invitations! So sweet looking! Very spring!

Second- I wish I could help, but I’m trying to figure this out too! I spent so much time hunting down awesome fonts that I now have OVER 325 fonts on my computer! Yikes! My absolute favorite, so far, is the Jane Austen font (found on dafont.com I believe). I used it to print the front of our STD envelopes. It’s elegant and flowy AND a great many people believed I’d actually written their envelope out by hand! Ha! Like I’m that talented! (My handwriting still looks like that of a 1st grader!)

Third- I actually like the font combination you already have on your invites! 🙂

I used “existence” as our more plain font and Jellyka Saint-Andrew for our script. I love them! I have a list of font websites I download from so while I’m 99% sure they came from dafont.com they could have also come from any of these:

I’ll attach a photo of my invitations for you so you can see what my fonts look like.

I used Champagne & Limosines (type) and Monterey BT (script). I downloaded both from dafont.com. Good luck!
