    Use it on your programs or some other paper product for your wedding.  I woudn’t advise using it for your invitation since it’s important that guests be able to read and understand the information on your invitation.

    @ohbride14:  I can’t tell from the alphabet. All fonts look a bit weid when you only have random letters (alphabet) shown and no actual word spelled out. I’d need to see an example with your names or invites. I think most letters are well-readable though.

    I’m not getting Art Deco from it either!

    I agree that the decision about which font to use is yours to make and that you can always dismiss criticism by asking friends and family to “get over it”. Not that this is the most graceful approach.

    However, the important thing to remember is that your invitations need to be legible.  Otherwise they will serve no purpose whatsoever.

    Personally, and I work with fonts all the time, I find it quite difficult to read. Sure, it is very attractive but it really does come across as totally “style over substance”. Especially for the purpose you intend to put it to.

    @ohbride14:  LOVE IT!

    Edit: I just read your comment about going for a vintage/art deco look – to me this is a modern/geometric look but I am totally loving that right now!

    I think if you like it, you should use it.  May I just suggest that you consider using gold foil for your invitations to get the art deco look.  Gold doesn’t really translate well with letterpress.

    @ohbride14:  It’s impossible for me to vote, honestly, because as it is, I can’t read it.

    However, like those brain game things where they spell words wrong or use an odd font & you can still read them, this could be the case. I think you should make a “mock invite” of sorts, and then we can give you a better vote because we will know for sure if we can read it.

    That font is really hard on the eyes.

    I really like it! I think as long as it’s just your names and you are going to put important information in a tiny size in it, you’re good to go! 

     

    Also what is the name of it?! I might be in love!!

    I think it’s really cool looking, and should be fine if you’re only using it for your names. Your guests should already know your names anyway, so it’s not like the vital unknown info will be hard to read.
