Art Deco Wedding Invitations
Art deco wedding invitations are the ultimate forerunner to a retro style wedding that will wow your guests. The term art deco conjures up mental pictures of beaded dresses, jewelled headpieces, bold geometric patterns and stunning asscher cut diamond rings. We tend to think of flapper skirts, Prohibition and the infamous Roaring Twenties. If you like art deco but with a twist, you could consider art nouveau wedding invitations. During its heyday in the first few years of the 20th century, art nouveau was characterised by natural line and form, often with plants and flowers being featured in artwork and decoration.
Art deco: a moment in history
The art deco period dates from to the late s and combines a mishmash of styles like cubism, Fauvism and Hollywood glamour, leading to the creation of a new artistic genre with an intense focus on modernity. s and even s wedding invitations feature bold geometric patterns, intricate details and gold accents often contrasted with black. s fonts art deco style are usually bold and block-like, often featuring letters with both thick and thin lines; anything too cursive was rare as it was dubbed ‘old hat’. Our vintage inspired wedding invitations can be customised to any colour scheme so you can have the design you love without changing the colour palette of your whole wedding. If you are planning a modern wedding but want a hint of old school charm, select a simple art deco design to prevent overpowering your original theme.
Nailing the colour and style
Elegant wedding invitations are all about choosing your design elements wisely. Whether it’s bold black art deco type, a chic gold art deco border, sleek and ‘modern’ art deco line designs, or black and gold art deco themes throughout your entire wedding day, pick the style that suits you and let it form a cohesive theme. Complete your wedding invitation suite with art deco save the dates, RSVP cards, place cards and wedding menus.
Art deco, Gatsby style
Gatsby style weddings aren’t complete without Great Gatsby themed invitations. Choose from our amazing Gatsby-esque designs and customise it to your taste. Vintage invitations are trending right now, and for all the right reasons: a Great Gatsby invite inspires thoughts of classic elegance, the golden age of Hollywood and a sense of timeless style. Who wouldn’t want those vibes at their wedding?
Keeping it simple and affordable
If you’re a no fuss bride (AKA a bridechilla, not a bridezilla) then we understand wanting to keep things at your wedding cost-effective and uncomplicated. Instead of searching for free art deco templates online with questionable quality and authenticity, why not just stick to an art deco template with one or two colours, or maybe a simple art deco border? Simple art deco designs are a way to bring a modern feel to a vintage genre.
Creating an entire art deco day
The vintage style doesn’t stop at art deco wedding decorations. There are ways to incorporate retro accents into all areas of your wedding day.
At the ceremony:
- Art deco bridesmaid dresses (slimline and beaded with shoulder accents or waved hair)
- Art deco wedding programs
- Chalkboard or printed wedding signage with art deco calligraphy or a simple art nouveau border
- Art deco inspired wedding dress, complete with beaded headpiece and long sleeves
At the reception:
- Art deco wedding reception venue (an old hotel or art gallery)
- Art deco font on your place cards and wedding menus
- Photo booth with art deco style frames and props (feather boa, beaded headbands, fedoras)
Whether it’s art deco templates to customise or the perfect art nouveau invitations that only need the wording changed, art deco stationery is ideal for transporting your guests back in time to join in on some retro fun. Plus, Paperlust offers complimentary envelopes, free shipping in Australia, and a customer satisfaction guarantee so you know that you’re in safe hands.

Inspired by the glamour of the s? It’s time to jump into the world of Art Deco Wedding Stationery.
It’s the 20s again! And it’s time to celebrate. While is full of all sorts of possibilities, nothing quite screams luxury and glamour like the designs of the s. Combining sleek patterns and dazzling finishes, the simple shapes and textures give print an opulent elegance that’s guaranteed to leave an impression.
With rich greens and golds perfect for Spring and Summer and darker monochrome colour schemes bringing a richer tone in Autumn and Winter, this versatile trend is perfect for any season- the possibilities are almost endless.
Plus, for the first time ever, we’ve created a free set of wedding design templates so you can easily experience this trend for yourself!
While the s is a decade remembered for its extravagance and success, a key feature of Art Deco wedding designs is simplicity.
Most of these designs focus on one pattern and use it to compliment the rest of the design. It’s a common misconception that you have to stick to rigid geometric shapes, but that’s only one type of Art Deco. Other popular patterns include, scallops, fans and diamonds which are either artfully placed around the edge or used as a background pattern.
Colour with Chrome
For a classic Art Deco wedding design, make sure to choose a bold monochrome colour scheme. The standout feature of these designs should be the pattern, so the background colour should compliment that. Shades like white, navy, black and green all work well and create a bold canvas for the rest of your design. It can also work well with pastels and is surprisingly versatile, so it’s a good idea to experiment and see which colours work best for you.
Bold and Gold
From your Save the Dates to your Thank You Cards, if you’re looking for opulence, shiny metallics are the perfect choice. Since Art Deco invites favour monochrome shades, gold, silver and copper accents really pop. For Wedding Stationery that really catches the eye, a touch of Foil will bring these metallic colours to life and capture the shimmering lights of parties past.
Make sure to check out our Foiling Tutorial so your artwork can hit the presses without a hitch.
Art Deco wedding details
Art Deco designs often have small intricate details and Laser Cutting is a great way to achieve that.
Utilising (you guessed it) lasers to cut shapes into your print, you can really get creative with the shape of your print. From adding lace detailing to the edges to creating scalloped flourishes to just cutting out something as simple as your own name- it’s the perfect way to add interesting elegance to your wedding suite.
Brighten your Envelopes
Don’t forget your Envelopes!
When sending Invitations and RSVPs, you can build excitement before they’re even opened with a Printed Envelope as part of your Art Deco wedding suite. Adding something as simple as a pattern or a monogram will really make your Envelopes look special. Plus, it’ll guarantee that they stand out against the welcome mat.
Envelope Liners also make a glamourous surprise and really cement your designs as high-end and special.
For a final touch, you can even add a Sticker or a wax seal to the back.

Now, let me hand you over to Anna for the step by step tutorial, but first a quick run down of what youll need..
White or cream card stock
Paper cutter and/or scissors
Double sided tape
Black euro flap A7 envelope
Black 4-bar envelope
Gold star dream paper
Oh, and when you reach the end of this tutorial, do check out the video for details on how to make the intricate art deco belly band. To me this is the show stopper. And Im going to let you in on a little secret, its super easy to make. Enjoy!
Step 1: Download & Print
Download the DIY vintage wedding invitation and open in MS Word or Mac Pages. Add your wedding details to the invitation and RSVP. The fonts used are Ecuyer DAX and Aerolite CP both are free fonts. So download the fonts to your computer, then open Word and the template.
Only the dark text in the picture above can be changed. The heading text that is grayed out cannot be changed. Print the file.
TIP: Print one copy and check for accuracy. Have someone else check the file for correct spelling and dates for you too, because there is nothing worse than printing copies to find you’ve entered the wrong date!
When choosing paper I recommend paper that is between 65 lbs and 90 lbs. This is a heavier weight than standard copy paper to give a luxurious feel, but not so heavy that it will jam your printer. You can also take the file and print at FedEx Office or your local copy shop. They will have a paper cutter on hand also to save you time on the next step.
Step 2: Trim
Use a paper cutter or scissors to trim along the cut lines. A paper cutter will produce straighter cuts and you can trim more than one sheet at once, speeding up the process. Plain old scissors will work just fine too though.
Step 3: Envelope Liner
Print the envelope liner (it is the PDF file in the download) and trim around the edge. You can use a paper cutter on the three straight edges, then scissors for the curved flap. The trick to cutting a neat curve around the point is to hold your scissors still and rotate the paper.
Insert the liner into an A7 euro flap envelope, lining up the top of the flap just below the envelope adhesive.
Score the liner along the same crease as on the envelope. You want the liner and envelope flap to fold together. If you don’t have a scoring tool, a closed mechanical pencil or back of a utility knife will create a crease. Just don’t use something that is sharp enough to cut the paper!
Fold the flap down and stick two pieces of double sided tape to the back. Fold the envelope flap over and push down to stick the liner and envelope together.
Step 4: Art Deco Band
And now for my favorite element to this set: The Art Deco Band! There’s no template for the band so you can change the sizes to fit your style and make the design your own. The dimensions listed below are what I used and what you see in the pictures.
Cut 1” wide strips along the long edge of the gold paper. This forms the band that will wrap around your invitation set. I used a lighter weight paper that was easily folded around the invitation set. Cut 3” square pieces from the gold paper. We’ll fold this into the art deco badge.
For some extra interest I used a scoring tool and created three lines along the strips of gold. This is entirely up to you though if you like the look or not, or have the time and patience to add in this step! I ran the tool along the band at random intervals, I had two lines closer together at the top, and another line near the bottom. Don’t cut the band! The scoring tool just creates an ever so slight indentation that adds interest when the band catches the light.
For the steps to create the origami art deco badge please watch the video it’s so much easier to follow along with the video than try to explain here. Don’t worry though, it’s not hard to make; just a few folds and you’re done. The instructions for making the band and badge start at in the video.
Step 5: Assemble the Set
Line the bottom point of the art deco diamond with the center scroll on the DIY vintage wedding invitation and wrap around the band. Make sharp folds at the invitation edge and pull the band so that it’s snug against the invitation. Use double sided tape to adhere the band arms to each other at the back, without sticking the band to the invitation. It needs to be able to slide off easily. Slide in the RSVP with 4-bar envelope and sit them on top of the invitation. The set is now ready to stuff in the A7 envelope and mail.
Isnt it fabulous? As a bride who DIYed her wedding invitations, this tutorial would have helped A LOT and they would have looked SO much better! A huge thankyou to creator Anna Skye of Download & Print for sharing this fabulous DIY with us today.

And, if you have noticed, the Art Deco theme was used more often since a certain movie came out. It became a hit because it showed a world of class, elegance, and power. Since then, a lot of events use this theme and the hosts require the guests to dress in suits and gowns and put on their best jewelry to make the night shine brighter.

Tips for Creating an Invitation
Creating an invitation is not something that people can do perfectly at first try unless a plan is made beforehand. Stop wasting your time, effort, and resources by following these tips:
1. Choose a Style
Choosing a style can be anything of your choice, be it something that you originally conceptualized or a style thats already been proven and tested to be suitable for the event that you are holding. Select the style that you think you will be able to happily work on and will be satisfied with. But before you decide on the final design, first ask for the input of the other organizers or hosts if you are not the only one handling this event. Its important to hear other peoples opinion on it and figure out if there are ways in which you can improve the style or if it really is appropriate for the event. You may also see formal invitation templates.
2. Go for Timeless Typefaces
Classic fonts are definitely the best way to go to play safe with the design. They have stood the test of time and they have this unexplainable power in them that makes your design never go out of style. But, you can also opt to have a different font style if the style demands it.
3. Think about the Practicalities
You may have deep pockets and a lot of time to pour out in the designing of the invitation, but it would still be best to practice being practical. In invitations, you pay for the materials and spend time in designing it. You are holding an event, an money and effort should be conserved as much as possible as there are other important matters other than the design. Be practical with how you spend your time and money by planning how you are going to tackle important issues like the sizing, orientation, and print finish before getting stuck into designing.
In terms of the sizing, there is no standard size for an invitation. You can select a size that fits with an envelope in case you are using one. Its up to you if you want the invitation to be as big as a flyer or as small as a business card as long as the design fits the size and the details can be clearly read and understood. For the orientation, there are only two choices: landscape or portrait. The print finish will be decided on how you want the invitation to physically look and feel like. Choose the prin finish that you think will help your invitation to stand out.

4. Consider Using Photography
Photographs are destructive if not done properly and it would actually take more than a few experiments to arrive at a satisfactory result. But, when done right, you can exponentially improve the look of your formal invitation. You can use the photograph as a background or border but you have to be careful that it doesnt overshadow or cover any important element.
5. Properly Align Your Images and Text
As with every design, the positioning of your images and text should be carefully considered. They should be properly aligned in a way that it doesnt look like a mess, unless if thats the aesthetic that you are going for. Most of the times, the details are aligned in the center, but that will still depend on the design. Some designs require the text to be put aside for aesthetic purposes, and thats perfectly okay as long as the result is as expected. You may also see art deco wedding invitation templates.
6. Select a Color Scheme
Transform your design with the use of different combinations of colors. The colors that you will choose should be complementary to each other. This creates a beautiful balance that will surely bring your design to its full glory. Experiment on various color combinations instead of changing the main elements of the layout. Sometimes, all it takes is a different match-up of colors to make your design pop! You may also see rustic wedding invitations.
7. Add a Personal Touch
This is important in every designing process. Sometimes, we get too inspired by something that we end up unintentionally copying its style. So, instead of creating this mistake, make sure that you sprinkle pieces of yourself on the design. No, not literally. Think of ideas that you think will best reflect your personality, like incorporating elements that portray your favorite color and hobbies, or something that the guests will take a hint of who you are. Doing this not only makes the design more personal but also distinct from everyone elses. You may also see geometric wedding invitations.

Tips for purchasing Art Deco Invitation Templates
Most of the times security concerns are neglected due to the perception that purchasing a template is something simple and basic. People are lax when it comes to security because they trust the website too much. But little do they know that some of these sites are only hiding behind a mask and are already in the process of phishing for your data while you enthusiastically scroll down their page. These data are often used to hack into your bank accounts and other personal accounts where they can steal something valuable. So, to avoid these hacking methods veiled in compelling offers, you need to know certain points to identify the secure ways for online purchases. You may also see rustic invitation templates.
1. Look for Legit or Verified Websites
As an average user, you usually just click on whatever is shown first in search results. There may come a time when the things that you are looking for are not on the first few pages and you just pick any source you can find. These websites are filtered and prioritized based on its security and legitimacy by Google or any search engine that you are using. If you cant find what you need, you will then be desperately looking for the result that you need further down the search results, and we can say that these sites may not be as secure and legit as those in the first few pages. So, to avoid being scammed, there are few points that you need to take note of to ensure that the site you are visiting is indeed safe and secure. You may also see invitation car templates.
- Design. The design is a subjective matter and you cant judge the book by its cover. There are websites that have a shabby User Interface (UI) and poorly structured User Experience (UX) but are indeed legit and secure. But, if you think about it, who would want a bad design for their websites? None, right? So, if you stumble upon a well-designed website, it is most likely a legitimate and secure website. And, to add confidence in it, look at the domain and connection type if it really is secure.
- Domain and Connection Type. For average users, this kind of technical information is nothing of great concern. But, if you are the type to take precautionary measures when using the Internet, then you definitely need to take note of the domain and connection type of the site you are accessing. To make it simple, you can verify the security of the site by looking at the URL of your browser. Usually, the word Secure is placed beside it, indicating that the website is using certain security protocols to protect your data from hackers. The keyword for security might be different with other browsers, but usually are green in text color. You may also see sample invitation cards.
- Ads. Ads are the common medium for hackers to steal information. Those who are not familiar with ads will surely be tempted to click on them, not knowing that they contain viruses that can potentially harm your computer and steal information from you. So, to avoid such unfortunate situations, better stay away from websites that have too many ads on their page. Aside from it most likely being a huge scam, it doesnt help in the aesthetics of the site and it only distracts you as you scroll down the page. You may also see word invitation templates.
2. Find Affordable but High-Quality Templates
High-quality designs dont necessarily equate to expensive prices. There are templates that even though they are cheaper than the rest, they still offer stunning designs. In the end, it all depends on how far you are going to search for these hidden gems buried in the pages of search results. If you are lucky enough, you might even get a discounted price even though its already cheap. You may also see folded invitation templates.
3. Do Not Overspend!
Unnecessary spending is one of the most common problems when it comes to purchases. Sometimes, we cant stop our desire to buy something especially if they are on sale. In the case of graphic designs and templates, these extra spendings happen when there are stunning designs that you want to purchase but dont really need to have at the moment. So, to avoid overspending, close the tab of the website once you already have what you need. Shut down your computer or turn of the data in your smartphone if necessary.
Are You Ready for the Great Gatsby Gala?
Well, its not exactly a gala because the event might not require you to wear suits and ballgowns, but you know what we mean. The Art Deco gives this certain vibe like you are in a gala in the most sophisticated night ever. So, to hype up your guests, choose from any of these Art Deco designs and templates. Give them the night of their lives and prepare them for a grand event that they definitely wont forget! Have fun and good luck! You may also see free invitation templates.
