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.
5. Ally Hay’s striking vintage wedding invitations
More from Ally Hay – these are striking, different and beautifully fitting for a vintage wedding….
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.
8. Unique vintage wedding invitations with a twist
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!
10. Vintage wedding stationery with calligraphy by Laura Hooper
I’m a huge fan of Laura Hooper’s calligraphy and these vintage wedding invitations from Laura’s collection are so beautiful!
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.
12. Blue vintage wedding invitations
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’ve always loved invitations from Wanderlust Cards in Scotland – Audrey’s creations are spectacular and these beautifully adorned vintage couture wedding invitations are out of this world.
