When it comes to planning your wedding day, there are so many details to consider – all of them special! One of our favourite wedding themes are the throwbacks – those days which draw on fabulous eras from the past! Weddings mixed with a vintage twist can be heavenly and are definitely noteworthy when it comes to choosing your theme! For something special, go all the way with your celebration by sending out the most perfect vintage themed wedding invitations to your guests! Your friends and family will appreciate all of the love, care and attention that goes into your day, starting with your stationery choices…
Send your invitations straight from the desk of an Edwardian lady (early Downton anyone?) with scrap-book touches, Victoriana, custom stamps, botanical drawings and watercolored flowers – all of which would’ve been found on the greetings cards and personalised stationery of the period spanning the 1890s to the First World War… We think that this vintage theme for your wedding invitations is gorgeously romantic, reminding us of the days of love letters sent between sweethearts, telegrams and forget-me-not tokens! A handwritten invite would be an extra special touch.
There’s no denying it – with the romance, glitz and glamour of The Great Gatsby, the 1920s will always be a hit! Invite your friends to the party of the century with vintage themed wedding invitations that draw their inspiration from the bold design of the Jazz Age. Take cues from Art Deco motifs, showy fonts and lots of gold when choosing your wedding stationery! The aim is to show your guests how your day will be the talk of the town – big band and cocktails anyone?
For all the rock and roll babes out there, we love the swallow tattoo design of this invitation! Your vintage wedding invitations can scream the 1950s with this trick! Don’t be afraid to stand out, especially if you’re in love with all things retro! Rockabilly invitations remind us of swing dancing, pin-ups, teddy boys and Brighton pier!
We’ve mentioned the telegram already, but, a telegram styled invitation, with a typewritten font could give your wedding invitations that vintage fix! With messages sent by telegraph machine back in the day, the telegram was the way to announce important news for people without telephones! Get yours out for the biggest, most important day of your life – your wedding!
