Beautiful bunting, summer fete wedding invitations

The trend for vintage village fete or ‘tea party’ wedding themes continues to be hugely popular in 2014 – think rustic country gardens, barns and farm venues, hay bales, trestle tables, coconut shies, tombolas, jam-jars, cake-making competitions and cupcakes.  Dream of long summer days with a hog roast in the evening or boho festival-chic styling for a chilled summer vibe.

So what better way to announce your village fete theme than to bring out the flags with some great bunting wedding invitations and on-the day vintage chic?  We’ve brought together some ideas from our favourite designers but you can get creative yourself and design your own rustic invitations.  Take a look at our choice below and start imagining those dreamy summer days….

Blush Publishing

Blush Publishing

This beautiful letterpress design by Blush Publishing was designed by the bride herself. Shelley took inspiration from vintage pattern and summer themes. Her drawings were scanned into the computer and edited in Photoshop. Then she added old typewriter and carnival style fonts into the mix and came up with a design full of nostalgia. The design was then letterpress printed in three colours onto 638gsm pure cotton board.

Letterpress Wedding Invitations: 10% discount offer

There is nothing quite like receiving a letterpress wedding invitation with its wonderful, tactile finish. I’ve always wondered why Letterpress wedding stationery has not been as popular here in the UK compared to the US, where the old printing technique is certainly one of the most popular wedding invitation styles. Recently though I’ve noticed quite a marked increase in the number of companies offering this beautiful, high quality printing.

The Letter Press of Cirencester is certainly not new to the market, they have been printing superb quality letterpress wedding stationery since 1986 and the quality of their products really does need to be seen to be believed.
