Help!

Hi Everyone- I'm hoping you can help me out. I'm getting married on September 7. I just received my wedding invitations from a vendor on Etsy. The invitations were supposed to look like the picture, however, they showed up with black and dark pink ink instead of dark gray and light pink. I can't go back to the original vendor who messed up because she’s (conveniently) on vacation until July 14. And I can't change my wedding colors this late in the game. I can, however, recreate the invitation and reprint it in the right color ink. I just need to find out what font she used. Any ideas?? Thank you for your help!!!!

Weingut Script Flourish is a decorative display font with high contrasts, perfectly drawn to the tiniest details. The font is trimmed to fairly large font sizes and is highly suitable for chapter titles or book jackets as well as Headlines, Invitations and wine labels, although also impressing with an astounding legibility in small typesettings. Inspired by the hand drawn Blätterschrift from the 19th century Mettenleiter’s Schriftenmagazin, its basic structure is related to the English Script. The creative process started in summer 2009 and after 600 hours of work, over a 2 year period, Weingut now unfolds to reveal all its charms.
Created by Georg Herold-Wildfellner.

Design with bicoloured capitals:

Any suggestions for a good font to use on formal invitations for the sections requiring all caps (for example, post/zip codes) where the main body of the text is set in a script - such as Bickham Script - in order to avoid this (see image)?

Any help gratefully received!

Thanks

Pete

Hello, I am happy to finally announce the release of my new typeface!

Rukou -- a geometric-script typeface influenced by schoolhand

Mynaruse Royale is an expansion of Mynaruse Titling. It features script capitals and widely tracked and smaller titling capitals. Mynaruse Royale has plenty of character and, with its powerful and sharp serifs that draw the eye. Mynaruse Royale is useful in settings that call for titling with an extra touch of elegance, such as a storefront, wedding program or formal invitation.
Mynaruse Royale contains a number of OpenType alternates, including alternate forms for the capitals that are large, drop cap like capitals instead of the calligraphic script capitals found in the default forms. Additionally there are non widely tracked lowercase forms that work well with the included alternate characters and ligatures.

Hello,

So what can I do to make this piece a wow? I feel like with some tweaking it could be special, but I have been staring at it too long and have lost my perspective.

thanks!

Darjeeling combines British Elegance and Indian Flavor. It is flared like Optima, with a scent of Bodoni. By layering “Regular” and “Ornaments” over each other you will create astounding pieces of colorful typography. Additionally there is “Regnaments” which combines the two other styles.

Darjeeling is great as a display font, but also perfectly legible at text sizes. Use the ornaments only to add spice to Your design.

Make sure to use applications supporting all these lavish OpenType features like small caps, various sets of figures, fractals and the 102 discretionary ligatures.

Darjeeling has been recently released at myfonts:

Hello fellow typophiles. Does anyone care to critique this invite I've made for my mother's birthday. It's 210 x 130mm, both sides shown, and I'd like it printed on something like 350gsm uncoated cartridge stock. I looked in foil-blocking, but that's proving too expensive and time-consuming, bearing in mind I need to get these printed ASAP. If anyone knows a way to make it a little special without costing the earth (e.g. metallic pink - that's here favourite colour). Colour used at the moment is Pantone 214, with a tint of its complement which is a process green. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
