I created all our wedding stationery using Picmonkey, so I can highly recommend this option. Why not start a 7-day free trial and find out for yourself?!
How to download fonts to use in your wedding invitations
Before you go and download a font you like, check to see if it’s already installed on your computer. A quick way to do this is to open a Word document on your computer and scroll through the fonts that are available – you might be surprised!
Fonts will download to your computer as either an OTF or TTF zipped file (If you have a choice between OTF and TTF, choose OTF). Open the font folder on your computer, double click on the OTF/ TTF file you want to download and click ‘install font’ when prompted.
Restart your computer and your new font should now be available for use on your computer (and on design programs such as Picmonkey*). Easy peasy!
