Unique Vintage Save The Date Ideas: Photos
Photos can add not only a lot of meaning and personal flavor to your save the dates, but, if done correctly, also a ton of vintage flavor. Consider doing a vintage inspired photo shoot with your fiance.
You can pick a decade and try to capture the era with costumes, props, backdrops, and antique filters. You can add the photos to your save the dates to give them a unique vintage look and feel.
If you don’t want to go too over the top with costumes, try adding old-time charm to your photos with beautiful, old architecture. In addition to architecture, you can also stand in front of things that are iconic of specific decades, like steam engines are of the late 19th century and Volkswagen vans are of the 1960s.
Have fun adding accents and finding settings that fit your vintage wedding’s theme and style. Check out the vintage save the date wording ideas for tips on what to write inside of your retro wedding announcements.
