To save some money, I’ve decided to design our save-the-dates and invites. I’m a magazine editor, so I have some basic knowledge of InDesign and think I can pull it off! However, I’m not super familiar with fonts. I’ve found one that I love—Janda Stylish Script (the first line of text below)—but I’m wondering if it’s too informal/fun for my very formal wedding next fall? Thoughts? Suggestions? This is a screenshot from our save-the-date, by the way.

It doesn’t give me the vibe of a formal invitation, but I’d have to see the entire thing to really tell.

I love it but it does seem casual. Obviously there’s more to invite suite where you would be able to convey formality – be sure all the other details make that point.

Thank you! That second (and third) opinion is exactly what I needed. Instead, I’m thinking we will go with the Burgues font (see below). I’ve always loved the font but just recently learned how to use it properly without all the crazy glyphs. Ignore the low-res image and poor spacing–I’m still just playing around!

I like it! We used the Janda Elegant font for portions of our paper items (our wedding was pretty formal as well). I really liked it – maybe that would be a good compromise between the two you mentioned?
