@Silveramos: It’s not Burgess or Chopin…if you type in some of the invitation text, it looks totally different.

OP, I’ll keep searching and let you know if I can figure it out. It may have been designed by a calligrapher and set that way, so there might not be an actual font floating around on the ‘Net that fits.

So after looking at your site again — I think it actually IS Rook Script. The invitation pictured is produced by the same stationers I used, so I assume it is the same typestyle. Check out the William Arthur website — I think you’re looking for the Rook Script they offer.

Actually it’s Bickham Script Pro, and you can buy it here:

There are alternate caps that you see with swashes (the bride and grooms names) that can be used…I think they are called character glyphs.

@vaness13181: The “T” in Troy is totally different. That’s a nice font, though.

@Statutory Grape: Yes, I know.  That’s where the “alternate” caps come in play.  The font has various glyphs for the same character (letter of the alphabet).  Just like some of the other common wedding fonts like Burgues Script.  Not to mention, that is a Vera Wang invitation, and I’ve seen the matching program.  In fact, I am designing my wedding program based on hers, and she uses Bickham and Copperplate fonts.

Here is a character map for Bickham if you want to see all the options (scroll down to “stylistic alternates”):

And here is another example of the swash caps:

The only problem is I think you have to have one of the big design programs like Adobe InDesign, Illustrator, or Photoshop to access the glyphs.  I wasted $100 purchasing Burgues, but I can’t get all the cool swashes and alternate glyphs because I don’t have one of those programs.  You might want to ask a graphic designer or someone more familiar with fonts about it before purchasing anything.
