The Roaring 2021’s
The 1920s were known for jazz music, endless dancing, the beginning of the Hollywood golden age, flapper prohibition, and so much more. Now that we’re in the modern-day 20’s – we’re seeing couples give the nod to the roaring ’20s by incorporating fun details into their wedding day decor. From jazz music to feather accessories to sequin art decor, there are endless ways to add this theme to your wedding day decor. If you’re looking to embrace the 20’s, keep reading to see what details you can’t miss!
The attire at your wedding will drastically change the feel of your wedding. For the bride, consider opting for a wedding dress that fits in with the twenties theme, like a dress with ruffles or sequins. For the veil, consider skipping the longer style and opt for a birdcage wedding veil. Typically worn to the side, birdcage wedding veils fit well with the vintage 20’s feel while offering a classy and elegant look. Dress the bridesmaid in flapper dresses or headpieces. Headbands, ruffles, and fur wraps are great additions to give off a vintage feel. For the groom and groomsmen, consider tweed suits or flat caps. From feathers, pearls, rhinestones, and flapper dressers – encourage guests to rock the theme of your roaring 20’s wedding as well.
When planning your 20’s themed wedding, think about the color palette. While color is a simple addition, it can impact the overall look of your wedding. Think back to that time and take notice of the different color palettes. You’ll want to incorporate black, white, silver, and dark jewel tones to use as your pop of color. Consider adding metallic or sequins into the attire or decor to compliment the theme for a fun twist.
The decor throughout your wedding will help enhance the theme throughout your wedding venue. Think art deco, bold geometric lines, and metallic colors when it comes to choosing your wedding decor.
Add drapery throughout your venue to give it that prohibition look. Opt for drapery in appropriate colors like black or burgundy to give it that dark, moody feel. Guests will feel like they stepped back in time.
When thinking about invitations, consider making them fit in with the Great Gatsby style. Make it art deco style with geometric borders and bold colors like black with metallic for the details. Keep a black and white theme to fit in with the theme of the ’20s.
Let your guests step back in time and capture fun moments from your wedding in a photo booth. It’s the perfect way to capture their roaring 20’s outfits and make memories with loved ones. Consider only offering black and white prints to fit in with the theme. Don’t forget to add props (like feather boas and top hats) to your photo booth to add to the fun!
Music will help set the mood for your big day. The roaring ’20s was full of live music, and it only makes sense to fill your reception with the same lively music. Opt for jazz and blues music to fit in with the theme. Consider hiring a live band to play the favorites from that area.
Create a lounge area for guests to sit back and relax with a glass of champagne. Opt for dark velvet couches and sequin or metallic throw pillows to enhance the theme. It will give guests an area to relax after dancing and connect with family and friends.
Rent an Old Car
Drive up to your ceremony in style by renting a car from that era. Opt for a vintage Rolls Royce Phantom or a Duesenberg Model J to pull up to the venue. It is a dramatic (and fun) way to make it entrance but also is a perfect prop when it comes time to take wedding photos.
