One DIY project that’s ever-popular among brides-to-be is making your own wedding invitations. Not only does this save money, but it also makes the first taster of the wedding that your guests receive very personal to the ¬†couple.

Matchbook Sans

Matchbox is a real 1920s retro style font, can be scaled up beautifully. Best used as a header.



Olho de Boi

I love all the little scratches and lines on this font, it’s so rustic and romantic.



Just Old Fashion

Like a spacer but longer
I use this font a lot, I find it really easy to read and pleasing to the eye.

A perfect font for smaller print and all the little details!


Bazar, Medium

Like a spacer but longer
This font has a lovely, early cinema aesthetic, there’s something almost gothic about it, especially when used white on black.

    These are great. I’m a total font geek!
    Use them for your menus and place cards or just anything. You can get loads of free ones too.
