Typography help please

Morning
I was wandering if anyone could offer a little advice I'm looking for a typeface to compliment Bickham Script Pro. Any advice would be gratefully received.
Thank you for any guidance you maybe able to offer.

Kate Ed-M, You will have a better chance of a response if you can give some additional information about your project. Is Bickham for chapter titles in your book and you're looking for a text font? Is it a wedding invitation? Christmas card? Are you looking for a serif or san serif font? More info is needed.

Thank you so much for your comment J. Tillman, it is actually for a logo design. I am using the uppercase A and wanted to find a typeface to compliment it for the company name. The company is language based and the stationery will be letter pressed, they also have a strong presence online so although the company will have a traditional feel it needs to have a contemporary execution too.
As for serif or sans serif I didn't want to be too closed to suggestions and I've tried both but as of yet I'm not completely happy with the results so any suggestions would be most welcome.
Thank you for any assistance you maybe able to supply.

He's right.
Nonetheless: Dalliance?

I feel like your struggle is not to find the right font, but to find a design concept. What do you want the logo to say? The more specific you can get, the more you’ll have to work with as a designer.

For example, “language based” is a bit general—dig deeper: what services/products do they offer, translation, writing, research, layout, audio?

Are they archaeologists hunting down the Word that will reveal history’s secrets?
Are they communication specialists who can hone your business’s PR strategy into a sharp, deadly edge?
Are they interpreters who can order you supper in any country in the world?

The font you pick has very little to do with projecting any of these messages (as long as it’s well-made).

Any font undermines or reinforces any message.

Any font undermines or reinforces any message.

But first, one needs a message.

(And what of messages transmitted without type?)

Messages transmitted without type can watch. :-)

I meant they can watch Typophile... without making any noise.
