The 1920s is always a popular era for vintage weddings.  The Fabulous flapper dresses and glamorous flowers make for an elegant look that you can still have fun with.

The items in my montage are all inspired by the 1920s.  I’ve based them on a black, white and silver theme with a splash of sparkle.  If you want more colour in your 1920s theme, try a strong pastel shade, reminiscent of art deco colours.

This theme adds a bit of life to a white colour scheme, with pearls, feathers and sparkle.  Headdresses were very popular in the 20s, there are lots of fabulous handmade creations on etsy and folksy, with intricately beaded designs.

The dresses featured are from LeLuxe, who make amazing reproduction 1920s dresses.  The shimmering designs are encrusted with beads and crystals, perfect for a vintage style wedding dress and your bridesmaids if your budget will allow.

The 20s was a time of prohibition, you can play on this with flower cocktails for table arrangements.  You can use groups of normal martini glasses with a couple of flowers, or large martini vases with bigger floral arrangements.

Crystal bouquets are perfect for this theme, with vintage brooches, pearls and diamantes.  You can also include lots of vintage touches in your fresh flower designs, like strings of pearls or crystals hanging from your vases. To complete a roaring 20s theme hire an authentic jazz or charleston band.
