inspiration for a 1920's-style wedding

Little details that evoke the vivre and opulence of the 1920's are everywhere right now, from runway fashion to the upcoming release of Baz Luhrman's take on F. Scott Fitzgerald's The Great Gatsby, and 20's style is always popular in the world of wedding planning.  A bride can be both trendy and timeless by incorporating 1920's-inspired silhouettes and accessories, and details inspired by the jazz age let guests know that a wedding is going to be elegant and classy, but not too buttoned-up.

The typography used for the couples' names on this wedding invitation from Minted is reminiscent of 1920's newspaper advertising, and the gray-and-white color palette would be the perfect complement for an evening ballroom reception.

1920's style is all about the details, whether it's a delicate lace cap sleeve or an elaborate feather fascinator.

Hairstyles featuring retro waves and sparkling accessories add a fun flapper-inspired touch to a bride or bridesmaid's wedding day look.


Kim and Steve's programs used a classic Art Deco font and flourishes similar to those seen in period architecture and design.

A mirrored table number is glamorous, evocative of Old Hollywood, and a little bit tongue in-cheek at the same time.

I love the Art Deco stylings in fondant on this 4-layer cake from The Knot, and I think changing into a flapper dress for the grand exit would be a fabulous decision for any bride this year, not just those planning 20's themed weddings.
