Going the DIY route when it comes to your wedding? Wedding invitations are one place where you can save big bucks, but one thing you need is an original font! Don't be a bore with standard fonts given to you, like Times New Roman and Helvetica (albeit classic bores, ahem) — fonts set the tone for style as much as the color scheme and design. Below, we cover a few places where you can download free fonts to use for truly unique invites!
- Fonts 500 — This site has over 500 free downloadable fonts and something for every wedding theme: classic (Jane Austen), edgy (Nauvoo), and your-name-in-lights (Marquee). There's also tons of commercially used fonts, so if you've been dreaming of directing your family to the reception in Simpsons font, well, done and done.
- 1,001 Free Fonts — Just as the name implies, you can search and download scores of fonts for use on your wedding invites, save the dates, RSVP cards, and more.
- Dafont — Search for your perfect font by style — comic, Western, sci-fi, typewriter, etc. — or by your basic serif or san-serif styles. There's over 14,000 fonts to sift through, so you could be here a while.
- LostType — Not only is LostType a great place to find free, cheap, and premium fonts, but it's also a good place to browse to get some invite inspiration.
- MyFonts — Search under "specials" to wander through hundreds of inexpensive and free fonts to use for all of your printing needs. You can even try fonts before buying if you are willing to drop some cash on the perfect font.
