Are you a sucker for movie musicals like Grease or Dirty Dancing?
Maybe you’ve heard records on a turntable by Nat, Sammy, Frank, Tony, or Dean, and you love listening to vinyl as you look through your granny’s black and white wedding album.
Good for you. You’ve got a vintage streak, baby!
They say “everything old is new again” for a reason, and we know that includes wedding invitations. So, we threw on our love detective hat (okay, an 80s Sherlock Holmes costume) and uncovered 25 of the best vintage wedding invitations just for you. Enjoy!
70s Retro Wedding Invitation
Retro wedding invitation templates for DIY-ing your own pocket style set!
We know it’s kinda weird to kick off our vintage invitation selections with this 21st-century digital download, but it goes to show you how easy you can DIY a vintage look with an affordable template.
These retro pocket invites are a gorgeous burnt orange like a California movie poster from the 70s! So if you’re a boho beach couple, this is a timeless look that still manages to be uniquely you.
Something Blue Vintage Letterpress Invitation
Perfect for a minimal and sophisticated shades of blue color palette, each invitation is beautifully hand pressed onto fluffy 100% cotton paper! You choose the matte ink color for your each of your cards no need for all the items to be printed with the same color.
Before continuing any further, we wondered about the difference between vintage and antique.
According to Webster’s Dictionary, “antique” is something arty or decorative from the past, which is apparently at least a hundred years ago. Splendid.
As for “vintage,” that’s a specific time when an item is produced (like a 1970s movie or a 1950s drive-in). It also refers to the best qualities of a particular era. Cool!
So how vintage do hand-pressed Liberty Blue matte ink invites sound? How about when they’re printed on luxurious paper that’s 100% cotton?
If you say extremely vintage, we agree.
We also appreciate that there’s one ink color used (you do have other color choices), and the design layout is joyfully elegant.
Letterpress Invite with Vintage Monogram
This monogram letterpress wedding invitation speaks to delightfully classic couples who want to set the stage for their big day.
Here’s another Letterpress invitation example that is stunning in its simplicity.
“Letterpress” means that invites are handmade, in this case, with an antique press machine using Lettra card stock, and a very vintage-looking monogram as an impressive accent.
Elegant Invites on Heidelberg Printing Press
Our elegant letterpress wedding invitations are printed on our vintage Heidelberg printing press. Each classic wedding invitation design is impressed into tree free 100% cotton cover stock leaving an classic embossed texture. Perfect for your formal wedding.
Yet another extra-special invitation for your consideration, printed on an antique press using 100% cotton cardstock.
We can’t get enough of the font samples shown here, everything from chic, handwritten-looking calligraphy styles to big-block fonts like something out of a 19th-century newspaper.
These formal wedding invites have an embossed texture, with the fonts raised delicately off of the card stock. The overall effect of this invitation is gorgeous refinement.

This invitation’s font style and layout are pure 70s, but yet again, you get an easy digital download that’s a pleasure to edit for your 21st-century wedding theme.

This invite makes us imagine 70s disco dancing, bubblegum popping, and drinking milkshakes at that drive-in restaurant where they serve you on roller skates!

Wedding Invitation on Vintage Glow Cardstock
Science fact: paper cut from trees contains lignin, and as it is exposed to air and light, the lignin turns yellowy. That’s why old newspapers and books have that warm golden glow.
The beauty of these handmade invites is the vintage-glow cardstock color. You have a rainbow of choices with the digital ink, but we think the wine color looks fantastic!
French Vintage Wedding Invitation
Choose from either the digital files to print yourself or printed invitations. We customize your files for you for both the digital and printed versions.
