Us women, have been dreaming about our dream wedding since we were little girls. We want it to be perfect or as close to perfection as possible. And, nothing is more dreamy and enchanted than a wedding inspired by the glorious 1920’s! Here are some elements on how to celebrate your wedding styled in that sophisticated decade.
For the brides’ and bridesmaids gowns, flapper inspired dresses is the look of the 1920’s. Fashion in this decade was all about the long, lean silhouette with a dropped waistline. Not all body shapes look flattering in this cut so try to research on other vintage elements to accent modern figures.
1920’s fashion was all about elaborate hairpieces. We call these hair accessories fascinators, which is fitting since it adds a little bit of “fascination” to the look with its feathers and rhinestones. For the bride, try a mini mesh veil with feathers on your headpiece to keep it authentic. Pair your head accessories with a pair of white gloves and beaded clutches to get that realistic twenties feel.
For the hair and make-up, cat-eye eyeliner and red, bold lips is what makes the 1920’s. This decade’s hairstyle was big on “old Hollywood” curls with a deep side part.
For the men, nothing is classier than a good fitting fedora matched with a vest over a pinstriped suit. Small accessories like a coloured handkerchief or an heirloom pocket is perfect for the 1920’s inspired ensemble.
Go for a traditional approach like an inn or a rustic manor. Or if you want something more upbeat and roaring like the twenties, try a bar or a jazzy lounge. An example of a venue that captures both the vintage and jazzy feel is the Stillwells Restaurant and Lounge. Try knowing more about it in http://www.stillwellsrestaurant.com/weddings.
Music is a perfect way to deliver your guests into another decade and for the twenties, jazz and a big live band personifies it. The décor should give out that rustic, genuine feel. Add some personal touches by putting up old pictures of you and your partner or even black and white photos of your wedding preparations. Top it off with cocktails and old-fashioned champagne fruit punch to complete the experience.
