But first, vintage save the date ideas…


Rustic is a style in its own right and can appeal to a more country or down-home type of bride. But rustic can also mean primitive or ancient. Think rust and tarnish. A perfect way to carry over that idea and put it into your save the dates would be a real wood save the date or something with a lace design. Rustic vintage is perfect for an outdoor wedding or fall ceremony.


Perfect for a classic bride. If you are looking for a more traditional or formal theme choosing victorian styled save the dates will match that theme and kick off the rest of your wedding decor flawlessly! Fancy calligraphy, gold foil, or an intricate scroll detail are all great ideas for vintage victorian save the dates.


Who doesn’t love a good decade theme? This may seem a bit unconventional for a wedding, but for a more eclectic couple a decade themed wedding is right up their ally! A photo save the date is a good idea when choosing a decade theme. This way, you can dress up for the era you’re going for during your engagement photo session. Choose a black and white photo for the 20’s or go for 70’s vibes and let the colors pop!
