How to Plan a Record Themed Wedding
There’s a trick to perfecting the perfect themed wedding: choose just a few of your favorites to incorporate within your classic wedding decor. This is crucial: you needn’t overwhelm the space with record themed wedding ideas everywhere, but rather select the most meaningful ones and add it to your list.
You don’t want the space to look cluttered or too much like a party; strive for an elegant wedding with fun, creative record-inspired items to add a little bit of whimsy and fun.
WEDDING TIP: A couple of retro vinyl record ideas are all you need to make this theme a hit!
Record Themed Wedding Save the Dates
Let’s kick off the fun with a save the date. A save the date card is a great way to share your theme with guests early. These creative magnets are perfect for guests’ fridges and will make a great first impression. We spotted them at LoveMeDoDesign.
Once you’ve sent save the dates, it’s time to tackle your next stationery item: record wedding invitations. These vinyl invites from Dawn Jasper are AMAZING! You can completely customize the text and colors to suit your style.
Record Wedding Website
Don’t forget a matching FREE wedding website from here!
For another style option, check out these from Zazzle. By PoptasticBride.
Real Vinyl Wedding Invitations
These are authentic records turned invitations. Cool design! By PhonoBoy.
These retro throwback invitations are a fun style, too! I’ve seen these in person and love the way they look! By ReflectionsByCarlaRolfe via Zazzle.
Okay, now you have save the dates, invitations, and an awesome wedding website. Let’s talk about how you’ll deck out the reception with record wedding ideas.
Greet guests to your reception with a welcome sign like this one by NoOrdinaryEmporium. Choose from a standard retro vinyl style or a fun neon sign inspired design.
Record Wedding Seating Chart
Next up: seat your guests. You can choose a seating chart sign with a record design like this one (a wildly popular item, might I add). I love how the tables are named after favorite songs, so guests “find their song” and that will lead them to their assigned seat.
If you prefer, you can use traditional tented cards instead. These have subtle yet themed vinyl record designs next to the names. These are also designed by the talented No Ordinary Emporium. These can work as escort cards (put the table number or name on the card) or place cards, set at each guest’s place setting.
For another style, you can use these by LoveMeDoDesign as another fun option.
Instead of table numbers, you’re going to take this theme up a notch: use table names that are named for favorite musicians or song titles. These customizable record table numbers / names are handmade by NoOrdinaryEmporium.
If you want to use real vinyl records, this shop on WedfestWeddings repurposes vinyl records into these table names, which fit in nicely on these table number holders.
What else will you need for tables? Menus! These record wedding menus are the perfect touch to share what’s for dinner with guests. By NoOrdinaryEmporium. The colors are customizable for your event.
On tables, you’ll also want to place favors for guests. Here are some record-inspired favors you can give to wedding guests.
Vinyl Record Bottle Opener Favors
These are adorable keychains that also open bottles! By BeOurGuestDesigns.
Record Coaster Favors
These cork coasters are made to look like vinyl records. It is a cute favor for a record themed wedding! By BestDayEverSpot.
And these! “For the record, we’re in love”. :) Also by BestDayEverSpot.
If you don’t want to give vinyl-themed favors for guests, you can give any of these wedding favors and add a sticker to it. Personalize it with ease in just a few clicks. By Caitlin Considine.
Ah, music! It is a must-have at your music-themed wedding. Hire a wedding DJ or a band. You can even take it up a notch and hire a DJ who only plays vinyl records. (Totally awesome idea, isn’t it?) If you’re planning a Michigan wedding, check out Vintage Vinyl DJ.
Then, do one more thing: offer song request cards with a vinyl theme! You can make your own with these blank 4×6 flat cards and this stamp by 904CustomEvents.
Next up: decor. First, you can add your record player as a decoration. If you don’t have one, you can get one like this by Victrola and place it at your entry table.
You can also display this custom wedding record, made for you by Sibellium.
Vinyl Record Roses
If you’re willing to go a bit unique, try these flowers made from repurposed vinyl records. These would be fun as mini floral arrangements. By VinylRevivalstudio.
You can display cupcakes or even your wedding favors on this vinyl record dessert stand by GmaJanisew.
Or you can offer cupcakes for guests with these mini record wedding cupcake toppers. Get it here.
Record Guest Book
One of my favorite items for a record themed wedding: a guest book featuring a vinyl record design! By Jenna Glantz Design Creatives.
Or this is a REAL record your guests can sign directly on, along with a custom sticker label on the middle with your names and wedding date. Love it! By WhimsicalWhiteFox.
Guests can use white permanent marker pens like these:

This is another option and we’re loving the way you can customize it. By NoOrdinaryEmporium.

This unique wood vinyl inspired record gift is great for the newlyweds or a present for the fifth anniversary (traditionally wood). By TheDavidsonWorkshop.
Last but not least, turn your wedding song into a beautiful keepsake art print! This makes a great gift for the newlyweds. By DefineDesign11.
The rest of the decor should be typical for a wedding: decorate the tables with greenery or floral arrangements, centerpieces, and other non-vinyl items. The key here is to keep the elegance of a wedding, while tying in a few of your favorite record themed wedding decorations.
