Boardwalk Empire, Downton Abbey, The Artist and the Great Gatsby have exposed a whole new generation to the sophistication and glamour of the 1920s. So it’s no surprise more and more brides are jumping on the bandwagon and planning high style art deco weddings. Because Roaring Twenties fashions have such a romantic, feminine flair, with their floaty handkerchief hems, dropped waistlines, long strands of pearls, beaded details, and statement making hair accessories and hats, they are perfect to plan a wedding around! The look is so chic, and a great alternative for the bride who prefers not to go the big, pouffy, princess gown route. Below are some photos and style tips to inspire brides who are considering a vintage themed wedding based on the era of the flapper girl, the charleston and jazz music!
Note the use of wide brimmed floppy hats. Cloches were also popular. And if a women wore a veil, the headpiece was often like a cap that covered the head and was embellished with flowers or beading.
