I've Lost My Ability to Free Think

Updated. I was rushing to get out the door and deleted Option 2.

Can I recruit some opinions on font selections? I've added a poll to the side (sorry Google Readers) to make it easier. You can click each image to view it full-size. Feel free to tell me if the dots look bad (or good!). I'm not even seeing them anymore. Thanks in advance!

Option 1:
Century Gothic and Names in Georgia



Option 2:
Lauren Script and Century Gothic



Option 3:
Century Gothic and Names in Lauren Script

I know how it is when you just can't see them anymore. I like the Lauren script better. It sets your names apart a little better than the Georgia one. I always like a cursive font somewhere on a wedding invitation too. It just goes.

I LOVE the dots! I think you should give yourself a break over there. They look awesome!

And I think I like the font choice #1 better because it seems to "go" with your dot theme better for some reason. BUT I am no expert (as I think you already know).

jessica lynn said...

either will look good :) if u go with #2 make sure to carry the font throught the rest of your printed materials somehow. I voted #2 because it spruces things up a bit :)

Kate said...

I'm LOVING #1 - but one suggestion...swap out that curly question mark and make it something more simple and modern. It'll pull it all together.

i like #2! another fun font is "fling"... it might look cool with your dots. or it may be too informal and not work at all. but i like the use of a script here and there, it adds a little pizazz!

Tina! You are seeing things that I think most of us don't see. I LOVE THEM. Print them. Mail them. Just be done with them.Trust me - your guests will be very impressed. I am. You are too fab for this madness. Repeat after me: Print and Send. Print and Send.

hugs,

I LOVE #3 - I like that the invitation is in a more "modern" font - it goes with your design (which is bad ass, by the way!!). But I like that the names are set apart by a cursive type of font, which makes them stand out more. In #1, the Georgia font was too similar to the Gothic, I think. And I think the Gothic is a great match for the more modern look of the invitations.

You have done such an awesome job on those!! I think it's jut because you created them, you see all the little things that you could change. Pardon my expression, but you can't quite see the forest for the tress. I'm kind of like that too. The invitations that I had somebody to design, well, they're not EXACTLY how I would want them. BUT - I'm not a paper designer, I don't really have the budget to mess with it, and at the end of the day everyone will think they're lovely and then throw them away!!! I love your design - and I'm sure everyone else will too. If I had seen your blog first, I would have asked you to design mine!

These are amazing! Seriously-I adore them. #3 is my HANDS down favorite, with #2 being my least favorite...I think the curly ?mark is perfeeeeect! I bet you can't wait to have these done. Hope all these nice comments have given you some perspective: they rule!

These are absolutely so funky I can hardly stand it. You're amazing! Don't pay attention to the people (read: boys) around you rolling their eyes, they just don't get it.Fonts totally DO change the world! :-) #3's my fave - it's modern yet romantic.

Number three is my favourite.

They're hot!

#3 by a mile! they look FAB!

sarah said...

HANDS DOWN #3 paper-madness trix- i agree with riley for the modern clean look of the font (forgot the name without looking) and how it blends perfectly with the cursive. i love a little cursive on wedding invites... #2 is not my favorite, even before i enlarged it i was thinking it didn't seem like "you" great job - remember it is a labor of love! you won't get to do this again (for yourself anyway) :)

natalie said...

I love them! I realize that everyone seems to be split on the font, but that just shows that you can't go wrong. I think the first one flows the best with the design, but the other two are lovely :)

Jamie said...

the dots are awesome!

i love design #3. it gives me a happy feel and that i can look forward to a fun time =)

you did a great job and i so love the curly question mark. it's too cute!

#1! The dots are so modern and simple - I'd stay away from Lauren ;)

Mrs. Rippke said...

Sooo glad you chose century gothic. It's one of my personal (and professional haha) favorites. And look at how round those o's are. Ah, a perfect match for the dots. :)

I like the Century gothic and Georgia. It's definitely appropriate for an evening wedding...classy, modern, elegant.

Haselwand said...

Number three by a landslide for me!

The contrast between the two will give you so many different options for the other print pieces to use Lauren Script and Century Gothic. Good luck!
