Diane + Hubby
Wedding Day 1996

About our Vintage Wedding Invitations. VintageWeddingInvitation.com began as an off-spring of my profession as a graphic designer and illustrator.  I am Diane and I have been creating commercial art for 20+ years. One day, a few years ago, I had a client request a vintage style invitation for her wedding. She was a swing dancer and avid fan of the Old Hollywood style of the 1930s and 1940s, and since I shared that same interest, the assignment was a joy. That same day I believe V-W-I was born.

Since this single design was created for this one person, I have grown this concept into a business with designs for wedding and showers that reflect the styles of the decades beginning in the 1900s and each decade through the 1960s. The collections continue to grow.

I have many years of experience working with museums, creating their advertising and promotions. I also happen to love swing dancing, big band music, antiques and old movies. All of these interests inform and inspire my work.

How it comes together: I begin with a pencil sketch on my drawing board. Many times I will resource some images from public domain sources or create vintage style collage art from copyright free materials. Some of the photographic solutions to the invites are created from photos that I shoot of my personal collection of vintage items. For example, my Mother’s pearl necklace and ring box from her engagement in 1944 (as seen in the 1940s Classic Vintage collection).  I design a collection based on the styles, fashions and music from a specific decade.

All of the imagery is created here in my studio. I then upload the images to a print on demand source called Zazzle. The images are designed in layers so that they can be customized to suit a clients personalization needs. I am assured that Zazzle will produce the highest quality printed invites and products with the most options for paper choice and custom options. Zazzle is the world leader in print on demand printing. They are deeply passionate about customization. When ordered, each product is made and shipped typically within 24 hours, and guaranteed you’ll love it or your money back.


I am pleased to say that my main contributor to the blog is the maid of honor from my wedding day in 1996. Pam brings a breath of fresh air to the blog and we are happy to have her ideas and inspiration to share with all of the VWI Brides.
