If you’re looking for vintage wedding invitations, you’re in luck! I love the vintage wedding theme, and that’s not only because I’m an old soul. It’s timeless and it gives you an excuse to rock fashion styles of icons like Downton Abbey and Lady Mary Crawley. And the vintage decorations are mad cute, starting with the mismatched teacups to the creative vintage wedding invitations.
For this blog post, I’ll be focusing on just vintage wedding invitations, though. Start with a quick peek at my favorites below, then keep reading for all the glorious details.

Best Vintage Wedding Invitation Ideas
Unfortunately, there are limited designs for vintage wedding ideas compared to other invitation designs. But that doesn’t mean that there are no good options out there.
50 Incredible Wedding Dress Ideas That Will Make You Swoon
I dug deep to find the best vendors for old-fashioned wedding invitations on Etsy, and most of them can customize a card for you.
Without further ado, let’s get started.
I don’t think it gets old-fashioned than this. The telegram wedding invitation is made from 2 ply Hessian Twine, ink, and a linen textured card.
Although this sample isn’t customized, the seller is ready to customize it for you. If you go with the sample, you can simply add a tag with your names.
|The linen-textured card gives the invitation a luxurious feel||It’s a little costly compared to most suggestions on the list|
|The ready-made card isn’t customized|
There can never be too many roses in a wedding, and floral designs make a wedding merrier.
This vintage floral design is for people who want to combine modern and vintage styles.
Unlike the first suggestion, this wedding invitation has spaces where you can add the names of the person you’re inviting. It also has spaces for RVSP where guests can either sign on accepting with pleasure or decline with regret.
|The card is customized||It doesn’t include an envelope|
|It has both a modern and vintage style|

This is a classic wedding invitation. It seems like the special kind of wedding invitations used by the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills of the ’40s.
The wedding invitation comes with a melted wax seal stamp which has the name LOVE on it. Thanks to that seal, you can return the card to its original form after reading it, protecting it from any damage.
You can order the wedding invitations with or without boxes depending on your budget.
|It has a very vintage look||You have to pay extra if you want the box|
|It’s pocket friendly based on what you’re getting|
|It comes with a delivery box (optional)|
If you want a botanical wedding invitation, then this is the card for you. It has moody florals that complement its dark color.
Additionally, this card is in the form of a digital download, so if you’re looking for something urgent, you don’t need to worry about shipping time.
|The card can be easily edited||Editing may be a daunting task for non-techy people.|
|The card is available in digital form|
This is a very interesting design. It gives you a chance to feel like a celebrity, only that instead of trending on IG, you’re the headline of a newspaper! Therefore, this is for couples who love attention.
To our sweet generation Z, it was a great honor (still is) to be on the first page of the newspaper.
The newspaper is customized with a photo of you and your spouse and your wedding details. This includes the venue, entertainment, attractions, registry, fun games section, etc.
It also has a removable card that your invitees can telegram back to you.
|It’s customized||It’s a bit costly|
|The fonts are amazing|
This is another fantastic wedding vintage idea. It has some beautiful white statice flowers and a very ancient font.
The card also has some soft hand-torn edges (so it doesn’t get old school than this).
|The soft hand-torn edges and the ancient fonts give the card an old-fashioned vibe||It doesn’t have a luxurious, classic look compared to most cards on this list|
|It comes in an envelope|
[lasso ref=”tidd-567″ id=”25096″ link_id=”90695″]
I literally wouldn’t come up with a better way to describe this card. It’s simple and fun, looks like a movie ticket.
This wedding vintage invitation is for people who are going for a minimalist invite.
|The seller discounts bulk orders||You can only order a minimum of 20 cards|
|The cards come in envelopes|
This wedding invitation reminds me of all the witchcraft series I’ve watched. It has the font like the ones in those secret magic spell books, which is amazing.
The invite features an elegant heirloom botanical print on a vellum envelope liner, making it perfect for an old-fashioned wedding theme.
|The print brings out the vintage look of the card||The invite has several pages that aren’t stitched together, so it’s easy to send an invite with some missing pages if you’re not careful.|
|They come in beautiful envelopes|

Is it Cheaper to DIY Vintage Wedding Invitations?
If you’re a crafty person, making your vintage wedding invitations may be a good option, but not necessarily cheaper.
You can use free photos and design your vintage wedding invitation using canvas.
That said, to access great photos, you may have to incur a cost that might skyrocket the cost.
In this case, I highly recommend ordering from cheap vendors on Etsy discussed above, though!
The vintage wedding theme is fantastic and never goes out of style. But for it to be special, you’ve got to get the vintage look in all wedding parts, including the wedding invitations.
I hope this blog post gave you an idea of a few old-fashioned design wedding invitation cards.
My favorite is the Vintage Newspaper Invitation card. Which one did you like best?
Inspired by the Art Deco era and vintage newspaper layouts, this newspaper wedding invitation design features photography of the couple, fully customizable articles for ceremony, reception, registry, hotels, guest information, attractions, and directions, as well as a fun games section. The reply card is removable from the newspaper, and contains space on the back to send a telegram to the bride and groom! This design can also be used as a ceremony program and is great for entertaining guests as they await events. Measures 8.75″ x 11.5″ folded, and folds again to fit a 6″x9″ envelope.
