I love all things vintage, so here I am going to share some ideas on how you can set the mood of your wedding using save the date cards and wedding invitations and decorate your wedding venue using vintage style table stationery.
Choosing the right wedding invitation
Setting a theme and choosing the right stationery is crucial part of your planning process. If you are unsure on what theme is right for you then try gathering magazine cuttings, photo’s and even fabric swatches and create a mood board. A mood board is a great way of seeing your ideas come together and deciding on a theme that’s right for you. Here I have gathered lots of ideas for a vintage themed wedding and put them together on a mood board. Doing this in the very early stages of your planning process can help as you go on to choose your wedding invitations, bridesmaid dresses, venue decorations, flowers and not forgetting your cake.
To fit with my vintage theme I have chosen the Shabby Chic Heart & Flowers design from Tree of Hearts which I am sure you agree compliments my vintage theme beautifully. If you are unsure on which wedding invitation design to go for then order samples, these are often available free of charge from all good wedding stationers. Samples allow you to see and feel the quality of the product before you buy, ensuring that they will be perfect for your special day.
Choosing the correct design for your save the date card or wedding invitation is crucial, as this is often the first snippet your guests will get of your special day. They can also be used to set the mood of your day, for instance if you choose a vintage style save the date card or wedding invitation this will imply that you’re having a vintage themed wedding. If you choose a snowflake design, this will imply that you’re having a winter wedding, if you choose a beach design then this might imply you’re getting married on or by the beach and so on …
