Looks like a font called “bombshell” to me, which is a paid font and costs around $80-$100 if I remember correctly.

Luckily, this style of font is popular, so if you don’t want to pay for that one, you can probably search for a similar, free font.

This one is fairly close https://www.dafont.com/shorelines-script.font You get the flourishes at the end by using ( and ). You might be able to find one closer on that site https://www.dafont.com/ by searching ‘script’ and ‘handwritten’

I think that the designer for that invitation probably manipulated the font a bit in Adobe Illustrator to get it to work perfectly with those words. If you have illustrator I can tell you how to do that if you want as well, but it’s a little finicky.

I searched and came up empty handed.  I had looked into replicating a font for our announcements and found the font to be so expensive that it wasn’t even worth it. I ended up going with something close but not identical.  A number of websites allow you to upload an image to search for similar fonts. I think that will be your best bet.

Miranda1 :  Most fonts that have flowing continuation of characters are manipulated in some way via design programs (Photoshop, illustrator, etc). Some fonts come with glyph packages that allow for the continuation and other fonts come in font “pairs” where you just substitute the flowing font for the regular font in the characters that you need. 

Try looking up the font Little Mandy. You would use Little Mandy Left for the first letter, Little Mandy for the middle letters, and Little Mandy Right for the final letter of each name. Obviously Little Mandy isn’t exactly like the font you want but it shows what I am talking about.

Miranda1 :  Once you’ve downloaded the font the brackets ‘(‘ and ‘)’ act as flourishes. So to have penelope with the lines going off on either end you’d have to type ‘(penelope)’ for it to look like this:

If you just type ‘penelope’ it would look like this:

If you want it to go over either edge of the invitation you might be able to just enlarge the text box so that it’s larger than your page to fake it, but

smalltownbigworld :  is right that normally that effect is done using design programs so that you can manipulate the font to suit the exact words you’re using.

Also look at the website creativemarket.com they have a lot of beautiful fonts for purchase. You’ll never find a free font like that, it’s made by a designer and they can cost anywhere from $5 – $100 depending on what is included. These types of fonts won’t work well on photoshop honestly, with the added glyphs you’ll need more detailed manipulation tools that you can only find in photo editors like photoshop. I would honestly check somewhere like Fiver for someone who can do this for you once you have purchased the font.
