The best 20 vintage wedding invites on the web!


It really makes me smile to see how creative you can all be- from your blog comments, emails and when I see which English Wedding features are most popular… it’s clear you love creative wedding inspiration – so today I have a treat for you! (and me!)

As a wedding calligrapher I have a bit of a thing for paper and type – nothing pleases me more than a nice font on warm paper with a bit of a twist to it. And the trend for vintage weddings has inspired a generation of wedding stationers and brides to create some really beautiful vintage wedding invites.

These are my favourite 20 vintage wedding invites

(in no particular order!)

1. Vintage wedding invitations by PrettyWild

Come Fly With Me!… beautiful vintage inspired wedding invitations by PrettyWild set the scene for this feature – aren’t these just the most beautiful idea and perfect match for a delicate, girly vintage wedding theme?

2. Glamorous New York vintage invitations

Vintage wedding invitations with a fabulously glamorous and sexy finish – these vintage lace letterpress invites are stunning: they were created for a bride and inspired by the lace on her vintage gown. (more on the Lela New York Wedding Blog)

3. Sophisticated and pretty blue vintage invitations

These chandeliers and swirly corner designs really stand out from the crowd, and with envelopes in pastel blue they’re ever so pretty. From Ruffled wedding blog.

4. Luxurious floral vintage wedding invitations

If you’re having a vintage wedding you can chose stationery that’s as pretty as pretty can be – and that’s exactly what I see in these exquisite vintage wedding invitations from Ally Hay which I found on Before The Big Day wedding blog.

6. Calligraphy invitations – vintage modern

I love these calligraphy invitations I saw on Oh So Beautiful Paper – letterpressed from handwritten originals, the calligraphy itself gives a vintage feel but the modern lettering adds a gorgeous twist to a vintage wedding invitation design. Love it!

7. Fabulously creative illustrated vintage invites

These invitations were designed by a very talented bride for a vintage garden wedding theme – I love the fairytale feel, the shapes of the invitations and the illustration of the bride and groom! I found these on Green Wedding Shoes blog.

9. Utterly elegant vintage wedding invitations

Vintage invitations can be elaborate or oh so elegant, and these vintage invites from Project Wedding are the absolute height of elegance and sophistication. A softly swirling monogram, a simple satin ribbon… for high society vintage brides!

11. Striking vintage wedding invites with red

These vintage inspired wedding invitations use splashes of red to give a playful look to the design – the soft backgrounds and vintage fonts keep the design very charming and olde-worldy! These vintage invitations are from Oh So Beautiful Paper.

I love the colours in this rustic blue vintage invitation design. The beautiful design is by Jessica Bishop Paperie – this was recommended by a bride to be on the Wedding Bee blog forum. http://www.jessicabishoppaperie.com

I love Cardlab’s letterpress stationery, and these classic and elegant invitations fit a sophisticated vintage wedding theme. I can personally recommend Cardlab, having written calligraphy on their invitations many times – it’s beautiful quality and they’re a great team to work with.

    I loved the vintage rustic looking one on your FB page (top left) but definitely no. 5 on this blog.

  • Wow what a great collection! So hard to choose. I love the rustic blue ones…if I had to choose! xx

    WOW! What a beautiful selection. It’s so hard to decide which ones I like the best as they’re all stunning, but if I had to choose my top three I think they’d be: 1. Pretty Wild UK, 2. Oh So Beautiful Paper and 3. Emma Jo. Such a great selection and they are all brilliant in their own way.
    Great blog Claire and love the site.
    Thanks,

    No’s 11 and 18 are really well designed and beautiful to look at…
    I’ve just started offering vintage invitations at http://www.rsvpcandy.com that are a little different… please take a look and give me your thoughts!
    Thanks!

  • What a lovely post!
    All of the artwork is very well done, but my favourite is number 12; the Blue vintage wedding invitations.

    Some of our wedding invitations are similar to those mentioned in your article but now I have some great inspiration for my next lot 🙂

    O.M.G I type in Vintage Wedding Stationery and your beautiful selection of invitations are just mouth watering!! You’ve got a great eye, Claire! I LOVE ALL OF THEM!!!! Gorgeous illustrations and design work make me go all gooey inside 😀 xxx

    Really good selection of vintage invitations. We introduced a vintage range at the beginning of this year and they have proved pretty popular with brides. Our work is digitally printed so does not have as much of the hand finishing as many on this list but as always, it’s horses for courses!

  • The invitations in #12 were done by me and I would love if you could give me proper link credit. Thanks!!
