Are you planning to create your own wedding invitations but are not sure which fonts to use? I am sharing some free resources for both FREE fonts and vectors that you can use on your rustic or vintage inspired wedding invitations.

We created our own invitations on a budget and I have several posts explaining the process, and even share my FREE wedding invitation template here. You can view the additional posts in the series via the links at the bottom of this post.

I originally thought I would design all the little vector/ornate embellishment designs myself, but due to time and my rusty design skills at the time, I opted to use free vector files instead. Vector files can essentially be edited and scaled without losing quality vs. a regular image file.

Just FYI if you plan to design your own invites using the vectors I mention below, you will need vector-based software such as Adobe Illustrator to open and edit vector files. Otherwise you can download my free flattened template and just add your own text with photo editing software or at picmonkey (I have tutorials here).

You can also purchase the DIY templates from my shop which come with the flattened PNG templates AND editable PDF files.

I scoured the internet to find lot and lots of FREE options so I would have a good amount to choose from. You can search “free vectors” to find what you like, but I will also include links to each vector I used. Of course there are also tons of really great images and vector files that you can purchase. However, I decided to go the super duper cheap frugal way 🙂

I played around with TONS of fonts and here is what I ended up using. Be sure to check out the links to each FREE font below the photo, or you can use the image as a reference.

4. Free Olive and Laurel Wreath Vector Set via Free Vector Archive

5. Calligraphy Ornament Vector Pack via Freepic

For the dashed line under “Their Wedding” and the arrowhead line under our wedding date, I used the line segment tool to create a line and then changed the stoke to a dashed line and then another one into arrowheads.

You may notice when trying to download some of these files that the download buttons can be tricky to find. Especially with all of the fake “download” ads. Some of these may even ask you to “pay with a tweet” or facebook share.

Due to the number of emails I receive about this I am including a screenshot I took of one site with arrows pointing to the actual download button vs an ad.

    Hi, I love how you’ve made your own invites. I’m currently working on mine and I’ve used your links, the font ones are great, however I cannot seem to open or use Vector packages which are the EPS files once I’ve downloaded them. I have Windows 8. Any suggestions? Thanks so much!

  • Hi Katie,

    I love your template so much! I am personalizing it right now but wonder what colourcode you used for the green characters and vectors? I hope you can help me.
    Thanks so much!

    Kind regards,
    Pauline

    Hi, Katie! Your card designs and your tutorials are so adorable! I’m not a graphic designer and haven’t had a chance to take class for something like this. But, I must say that you’ve made many experiences for me. Thank you so much for such a great lessons here. // Goikung

    Hi Katie,
    My daughter bought the wedding invite template that says “together with their families” instead of “along with their parents”. I am trying to help her with a “details” card. Can you tell me what font you used for “together with their families” since its different than “along with their parents” ?
    Many thanks for a wonderful wedding invite template.

    Hi Kate,
    I downloaded “Hanging Caps Medium” and that does not seem to be the correct font. Can you double check?
    Thanks,

      Hi Kate,
      The Black DIY wedding invitation template you emailed to Christine Askham on Saturday uses a different font. Unfortunately, I can’t include a screenshot here. It does not appear to be one of the fonts used on the wedding invitation on your website.
      Thanks in advance for helping me match the font.

    Hello Katie,

    I realised the rustic template wrote at the bottom that “Dinner and Merriment to follow”, would it be possible to edit these content to “Lunch and Merriment to follow” as our church wedding would be ending off with a lunch (:

    Many thanks!!!

    Hello! thanks so much for all this information! I am currently downloading Adobe Illustrator. Do you use that program to design the entire invitation? Or do you just use it to design the vectors and then use a different program to design and print the invitations?
