Vintage Wedding Inspiration

  1. 1. ==== ====Looking For Art Deco Style Drop Earrings? Check these out: ====Vintage inspired weddings are always popular, and different eras come in and out of vogue as thedecade of choice. Early 1960s cocktail party chic has been made extremely popular for weddingreceptions by the tv hit "Mad Men", and 1950s style tulle bridal gowns have been a top pick fordesigners over the last couple of seasons. To get in on the newest hot era to inspire weddings,though, you will have to look a little further back. Get in on the fun with a Roaring 20s inspiredwedding.The 1920s have long held a fascination for anyone interested in great parties and outstandingfashion. They are a fantastic choice for a wedding theme, as well, with lots of characteristics whichare easy to incorporate into wedding attire and the reception. Take your guests back in time to thefeeling of a speakeasy, complete with hot jazz, the Charleston, dapper gentlemen, flappers, and ofcourse "bathtub gin" cocktails.Begin your Roaring 20s inspired wedding plans by picking out the perfect bridal ensemble. Theideal silhouette is a slender gown with a drop waist, made from layers of wispy chiffon. Pure bridalwhite would work of course, but also consider a gown in a slightly deeper shade, such as blush,taupe, or cream. The original flapper dresses were known for their exquisite beadwork andembroidery, so definitely seek a wedding gown with special details. Ropes of pearl bridal jewelryare the perfect accessory, naturally. Pearl chandelier earrings would show beautifully with hair in asoftly waved bob, whether it is real or faux (long hair pulled partly back). Chiffon dresses are alsoa must for the bridesmaids, in muted pale colors.There is no question that a live jazz band is required for any 20s inspired wedding. You candefinitely add to the fun of the party by hiring a couple of dance teachers to instruct weddingguests on the traditional steps to dances like the Charleston. It will be so different than thestandard wedding d.j., and your guests are sure to have a great time out on the dance floor. As abonus, this is music that can be enjoyed by all generations, unlike a d.j. playing only the latest "fistbumping" nightclub tracks.Cocktails were a big part of the entertainment of the Prohibition Era. Gin based drinks wereespecially popular. You can treat your wedding guests to a taste of the era with signature cocktailswith names like "Bathtub gin fizz". For the younger guests, whip up a batch of Shirley Temples andRob Roys. Vodka based drinks were not popular in the 1920s, by the way, so keep that in mindwhen planning your signature drink menu. Champagne should be served in coupe cups, ratherthan tall flutes. Tastes in food have changed so much that most people do not bother trying tofaithfully replicate a vintage menu, but do keep the meal elegant. A Roaring 20s weddingreception is not compatible with the comfort food trend that has been so hot for receptionsrecently.
  2. 2. As for the wedding decor, think elegance and style. Art Deco was the reigning design style in the1920s, so look for streamlined rental furniture in cool colors, beveled mirrors, and geometric cutcrystal vases. Keep the color palette light: ice blue, silver, and white mixed with dark wood toneswould be fantastic. Deco style lettering would be a very nice detail for the wedding invitations,menu cards, and place cards. Without a doubt, the Roaring 20s is one of the most chic andelegant vintage wedding themes around.Let us know if you need assistance in any area of planning your wedding.Take advantage ofBridgets experience helping clients select pearl bridal jewelry and other accessories.
