Fonts can leave a lasting impression when it comes to wedding stationery. We love playing around with a mixture of different fonts and especially love seeing the countless combinations on all of our stationery!  Whether you are using all block fonts, all script, or a combination of both, fonts are a great way to set the tone for your big day. Since the list of fonts goes on and on, we would like to introduce to you today some of our favorite script fonts.

 

Dauphine Press Loves - Fonts

{Kendra} Kendra loves how the varying thick and thin lines of Piel Script radiate elegance and really show the best of letterpress printing.

{Kristie} Carolyna Pro is a whimsical, calligraphic script that’s both fun and classy, which is why Kristie is always delighted when she sees this font in stationery design!

{Abbey} Abbey adores the beautiful ornaments and delicate nature of Eloquence font. Combine this script with other serif or san serif fonts for a refined, polished look.

{Carissa} Belluccia Pro is Carissa’s favorite script font with its abundance of glyph options and classic, handwritten feel.

Dauphine Press Loves - Pattern

 

{Kristie}  Kristie loves simple yet glamorous patterns, such as this stunning, metallic herringbone wallpaper.  Print a pattern like this on an envelope liner, or as a blind-impressed background design on an invitation for added character.(image: 1)

{Carissa} Carissa adores bold, graphic patterns, like the navy and white striped wall in this living room. The pattern creates clean lines and acts as an eye-catching accent, just like it would  if it were printed on the back of an invitation! (image: 1)

{Abbey} Take an old, British-inspired design and make it new again by printing it in an unexpected color combination like the green, cyan and gold hues shown. Abbey is head over heels over this extravagant damask transformation! (image: 1)

{Kendra} Small, all-over patterns, like these gorgeous trellis window panels, give a piece texture when printed and really grab Kendra’s attention.  (image: 1)

Color can have a huge impact on an event and we understand that having the perfect color, the perfect match, is very important to brides and grooms. It’s also something that as designers and printers, we can suggest and create the perfect color for any wedding invitation. So, today we’re each sharing our (current!) favorite wedding color palette:

Dauphine Press Loves - Wedding Color Palette

{Abbey} Navy blue is a classic choice and a great alternative to black that really allows the gorgeous pops of coral to shine. When translating this color palette into wedding stationery, Abbey would add elements of parchment to soften the overall look. (image: 12)

{Kendra} Soothing pool blue alongside a fresh lemon yellow creates a fun and romantic wedding palette, ideal for an outdoor event. How perfect would this combination be on a variation of our Calistoga suite? (image: 1)

{Kristie} The combination of black and gold is sure to get guests excited about your wedding day! The look is complete when paired with touches of a champagne color as shown on our Stinson wedding invitation suite. (image: 123)

{Carissa} It’s all about your favorite bright, bold pop of color with Carissa’s favorite wedding color palette! Carissa suggests a design like our Carneros suite with black letterpress ink for the copy, design touches in a light gray or blind hit and a perfect pop of color like a painted edge! (image: 12)
