Rustic-Vintage Wedding Invites

I recently had the pleasure of creating these unique & fun wedding invitations for my cousin, Sarah and her fiance Brian. She is putting together a classy and casual wedding that will include a touch of whimsy. It truly will be fun and memorable event that represents them as a couple.
She requested invites that would coordinate with her rustic-vintage inspired theme and that would includ a sepia version of one of her engagement photos. I got hold of her vision and knew I wanted to create something that was elegant but light and fun.... and something that would give recipients a sweet, small taste of what is to come.
Drawing inspiration from old Type Posters that were used in the Victorian era and for vintage circus' I knew Typography was the way to go! I used varying fonts to reflect the eclectic & vintage elements of her wedding. I utilized a few of the wonderful free fonts over at
I chose three colors to use consistently throughout the design to tie the eclectic pieces together. The modern twist to this vintage & rustic theme is the color scheme: soft gray-blue, teal & cream are the main colors. However, rich chocolate browns and deep muted reds are being used as pops of color and complete the modern color palette. Blues and chocolate were my delicious choices.

My personal favorite touch is the hidden "S & B" that I used as a ribbon detail behind their photo ;)
