Of course they should be based on theme you choose for your wedding. And as the most popular wedding theme for upcoming wedding season is definitely vintage, we shall help you to find the perfect vintage invites.
Of course, the first thing is to select the time period, for vintage range from 1920’ to 50’. Those years may seems to not be so distant one from another, but as it was period of changes, so the styles where changing a lot. If you know on which period you want to focus, we can go on!
