has started a fight between my FH and myself. (Nothing too big, but we have differing opinions).
Here’s the thing. We’re having a semi-to-informal wedding. It’s going to be outdoors, and since we don’t have a big budget, we didn’t want anything fancy. He’s a huge fan of art nouveau, and I like whatever’s appealing to me. He jumped the gun and made the invites before the STDs (he’s pretty computer savvy, and when he gets something in his head, it’s there until he finishes the project), which was cool so that we could have a starting line.
I think the font is wayyy too fancy and formal for what we had in mind for our wedding. He disagrees and says that because it’s not “script” but “block” it’s fine. I love the overall look of the invite, but I cannot get over the font. Am I being unfair? Is the font too fancy, or does it really matter? The font is called “Trinigan FG”

It’s really pretty, but it’s a little hard to read. Maybe use that font as an embellishment, and a simpler font for the rest. I really like the copperplate gothic fonts, and it’s a bit art noveau.

I like it a lot, but it’s a little overwhelming for the whole invitation! I think it’d look great as an accent font (for your names or something) and with a simpler font for everything else.

I like the font, but I think you could get the one with upper and lower case…it looks like the font from smashing pumpkins.

Looks like The Nightmare Before Christmas. I love it and I think you should use it, though I do agree with amanda.lynn that it’s overwhelming on the whole thing.

I agree, use it as an accent! It’s a great font and not too fancy, but a bit too much for the whole thing.

I like the font, but I agree to maybe use it just for your names or another detail. Its a bit overwhelming to read if all the font looks like that.

I like the font, but agree it’s a little overwhelming all at once. Maybe do your names in that font and choose a simpler font for the rest of the invite?

Thank y’all so much! I completely agree that it would look better as an accent. That was my problem with it; I just couldn’t put the words in my mouth. So thank you, Amanda.Lynn: I do completely agree that it is too overwhelming for the whole invitation!
Hopefully I can convey this without feelings getting hurt 🙂

I agree with using it as an accent, it’s beautiful but a little much on it’s own!

My option wasn’t there – but it is a little hard to read … so I would maybe considering using it sparingly.

It’s pretty but very hard to read. Maybe just use it to highlight your names.

I agree. It is a little hard to read, but it doesn’t seem formal. Formal would be more scripty.
