These ultra darling vintage inspired invitations make me want to throw a bridal shower right now!

Day 80 of Vintage 365


While we may only be one day into spring, I know that many of you out there are already deeply immersed in planning your upcoming spring and summer vintage weddings. Though my spin down the aisle happened six and a half years ago and I'm happy as a clam in my marriage, I can't help but be perpetually drawn to beautiful wedding items and imagery.

Given that many couples plan their nuptials for May through August, that means oodles of brides are still in need of a bridal shower at this early spring stage. Fear not bridesmaids, maids-of-honour and other folks in charge of planning a shower, I've found just about the cutest, most delightfully vintage bridal shower initiations of all time.


Loralee Lewis is without a doubt on of my favourite etsy paper goods designers. Her creations are at once exquisitely old school and yet still charming fresh and innovative. Case in point, these mammothly cute bridal shower tea party invites.

Two gleefully smiling teacups - paired with a scrumptiously pretty vintage font - are the stars of these darling invites (Loralee can customize them for other events, too, if you'd like the same design for, say, a birthday party, garden party, or baby shower).

Available at the very reasonable price of $34.00 for twenty custom printed (with your event's details) bridal shower invitations and matching envelopes, from Loralee Lewis on etsy, these sweetly pretty cards are the sort of beautifully charming gems that would definitely set the perfect tone for any vintage themed wedding.
