3 tips to make your invitations a success 🎨
Our Vintage & Retro Invitations
Vintage is a whole bunch of times. Are you guys more like roaring twenties? Go for gold and satin. More like '50s? Go for lace! More like the '60s? Choose a vintage wedding announcement in the colours of these decades: orange, yellow, floral motifs... In short, whatever period you choose, you will find the wedding invitation that suits your ceremony.
A few message ideas
As far as announcement texts are concerned, there is no such thing as a vintage tone. It's up to you to adapt to the period and to your personality. Whichever period you choose, you can write a classic and elegant message or opt for a humorous tone. Nevertheless, we wanted to give you a little push with a few sample texts.

Dress, decoration, meals, activities... How to organize a vintage wedding?
Your outfit: vintage et elegant
Here, it all depends on the time you choose. For the 20's, go for a long, free-waisted wedding dress (no more corset!) and accessorize your outfit with a headband or feathers. More 40's? Choose a strapless dress ¾ cream or ivory. And by the way, why not add a nice retro touch to your outfit with a bell hat? More like 70's ? Try a look that's close to a bohemian wedding: a long, flowing dress with lace. In any case, in terms of material, you will find: lace, tulle, satin. To add an offbeat touch, why not add a pretty pair of derbies or sneakers?
Your decoration: vintage, of course!
Here, we don't teach you anything! You have to let yourself go on decorating with vintage furniture in line with your theme. For the 20's, add chic elements with gold and satin, depending on the years, add retro elements with pearls, crystal, macramé, pretty liberty floral motifs. And above all: bet on the car! You can arrive in a Chevrolet Bel Air, a 2CV, a combi and why not a Vespa!
Here are some decorations ideas:
- Polaroid camera
- Jute bags
- Incandescent lamp
- Vintage vehicle
- Mismatched plates and cutlery
Your activities: in line with the times!
For a vintage wedding, opt for activities related to your era. There are, however, activities that work every time: the photo booth with retro accessories but also dance classes to get the crowds going. Imagine your wedding turning into a swinging dance floor... isn't that great?

A vintage wedding to make your guests travel
Organizing a vintage and retro wedding is about making the most of our favorite era. Transform your ceremony into a 1920s ball with an atmosphere worthy of Gatsby the Magnificent. Take your guests on a journey back to the 1940s with retro outfits, trapeze dresses and above all... swing! Otherwise, remind your guests of good old memories with a wedding ceremony to the rhythm of the 80s.
Match your vintage wedding paper to your ceremony
Thanks to Fizzer, create a wedding stationery in accordance with your ceremony. Start with a vintage Save the Date to block the agenda of your guests. When the wedding organization is almost finalized, send a vintage wedding invitation to indicate the place, date and time of the event. And, to end the most beautiful day of your life, thank your guests with vintage and retro thank you cards. If you want to spoil some of your loved ones, why not give them a wedding photo album as a souvenir of this precious day?
