Authentic Vintage Style Wedding Invitations

Vintage Wedding Invitations Make a Vintage Wedding Start Out Right

With so many different styles of wedding invitations to choose from these days, it can be a difficult task to narrow your selection down to that one perfect invitation. I find it easier to start searching within a particular category, to get a feel for what style or styles appeal to you. One such category is the vintage wedding invitations section. Here you will find a wide variety of vintage style invitations to choose from, as Wedding Paper Divas offers 162 invitations just within this category. With all of those designs to choose from, you can see how narrowing your choices down to one specific category can help make life easier, but yet you still have some big decisions to make. I’ve made things a little easier by selecting a few favorites from this category, to help give you a feel for what design styles are being offered.

Signature White Wedding Invitations With Evening Sparkle : Black

Roaring 20s style

The “With Evening Sparkle” wedding invitation design brings to mind the roaring twenties. The front design of the card is printed in such a way as to look as if it advertising a “one night only” performance. It has the appearance of glitter, yet no actual glitter is used so you won’t have to worry about it coming off and shedding the glitter. This invitation is printed on a 7 x 5 inch flat card, and is available in black, white, jewel (a shade a teal), and majestic (a shade of purple). The back of the invitation has the first initial of the engaged couple, one on each side of a design that matches the front of the card. The matching items that can be purchased separately to match this invitation includes response cards, enclosure cards,” thank you” cards, and “save the date” cards.

Planning a Vintage-Style Wedding

As you can see, my pointing out a few specific invitations just begins to give you a sample of what vintage wedding invitations are currently available. There are many beautiful patterns, colors and different texts to choose from to make your invitations something truly unique that is representative of you and your husband to be. Be sure to look at all of your options within each category, and then at the options within the specific card or cards you like.

Chances are, you will find the perfect invitation that you can tailor to meet your specific needs. Your marriage is meant to last a lifetime, so you want everything about your special day to be just that, special. This includes everything from planning the wedding to the honeymoon. Start looking for your perfect invitation early, so that you won’t feel pressured into just choosing “something” you might not be happy with in the future. Choose one that really represents who you are as a couple, one that both you and your guests will look back at in the future with fond memories.
