Vintage Wedding Invitations are my new love (does that sound odd?). If you're looking to add some retro glamour to your big day or perhaps a vintage map/travel theme look no further.
A huge trend in the world of weddings at the moment is Vintage. Whether you're planning a tea party theme with mis-matched tea cups or a rustic wedding on a South Western farm there are vintage themes everywhere.
I've recently had the pleasure of working with some lovely couples who wanted to add a vintage feel to their invitations. First off there was Tracey who was introduced to me by a previous customer of mine turned Wedding Planner extraordinaire, Nadien (click here to see her invitations).
Tracey and Richard, with the help of Nadien, were planning a vintage themed wedding and were looking for a cinema ticket to use as their invitation. With some witty wording, a few carefully chosen typefaces and their gorgeous peach, silver and cream colour scheme I think the finished invitation looked gorgeously glamorous.
Another couple looking to add some vintage glam to their big day was Jim and Pamela from Ontario, Canada. They had chosen the beautiful surroundings of Credit Valley Golf
and Country Club in Mississauga, Ontario. After mailing them a selection of samples and discussing ideas via email, together we came up with a design which balanced the vintage feel they were looking for with some beautiful photos of their wedding location.
I used a parchment paper background on both the inside and outside and also created some passport stamps of some of the places they had travelled together. The finished invitation looked even better when printed and I'm pleased to say they were delighted with the result.
There are loads of ways to add a vintage element to your stationery designs. The overall colours, fonts and images can all be given a vintage feel. The Passport design had an overall background image of old paper which was worn and stained. Combined with the vintage map in top section it gave it a great distressed look. The front cover was in the traditional navy and gold combination of the traditional Canadian passport but also had a slightly distressed and worn texture added to give it some depth.
