I used Phaeton, Rosewood and Neutra Text. Not really “classic” wedding fonts, I guess. I used the same three fonts for everything.

I can’t remember the fonts I used, but I used two different fonts for the invites (including the inserts).  And tried to keep similar fonts on the STD’s.  

Basic rule of thumb for graphic art is less is better.  Typically no more than two or three max (at least, that’s what my instructors said…).  

That doesn’t mean you can’t bold, italics, etc. the two or three fonts you want to use, though. 🙂

Are you looking for serif, sans serif or script? Here’s what we used…

Save the Dates- Mrs. Eaves Roman

Programs- Copperplate Gothic

Not sure what font my actual invitations were because I bought them on Etsy- http://www.etsy.com/shop/baumbirdy?page=1

All from dafont.com:

for our names and titles on programs,

for things with lots of text (most of our programs, welcome letter, etc.), and

for the place cards and some of the fancier signage.  The name makes me giggle, but I actually love the font.

We used a different basic text font for the body of the invitation, but I don’t remember what it was.
