Can anyone suggest some fonts that resemble these presidential invitations? Shelley Std or Palace Script seem to be the closest I can find, but they just seem a little boring.
That is in fact a hand "written" piece by Pat Blair, the head of the White House calligraphers. Have you done a search on Myfonts or Veer? They both have quite a few script fonts.
By the way, Poppl Residenz is one of my favorites. May not be flourishy enough for you though.
