Planning tips for a 1920s themed wedding:

1920s and vintage themed weddings have never been so popular. From the hugely successful remake of The Great Gatsby to Kris Jenner’s recent 60th birthday party, the glitz and glamour of the 1920s is hugely on trend at the moment!

A 1920s themed wedding

As well as films and parties, we’ve seen a real rise in the number of vintage and 1920s themed weddings too. The roaring 1920s provide the perfect backdrop for your beautiful day – but we’re sure there’ll be lots of planning required in order to recreate the feel of a decade!

From sequin embellished flapper dresses to cloche hats to champagne saucers, 1920s accessories are fabulous and we’re sure your guests will love the choice of theme.  But we also understand that there can be lots of planning involved, so to help you along the way we’ve created these a few top tips for planning a vintage themed wedding:

Art deco invitations

One of the best ways of letting your guests know about your wedding theme is through art deco invitations. There are lots of great options on the market and sending stationery which bears the iconic art deco style will highlight to your guests that there’s a 1920s themed wedding party coming up!

Set a 1920s dress code

One of the perks of hosting a 1920s themed wedding is that those attending your big day can join in the fun too.  Why not invite your guests to help you recreate the 1920s by setting a vintage dress code? For ladies this could be anything from an opulent head dress to an all-out flapper style sequin gown. Male guests can also don their best three piece suits or tweed accessories to ensure they look the part.

Choose 1920s table names

1920’s table names will get your guests talking as they take their seats. Some of our favourites are The Great Gatsby, Al Capone and The Charleston. And what about a Prohibition table for those alcohol loving guests?

Book a wedding band

Jazz music is an iconic part of the 1920s and the right music will complete your themed wedding. Every good wedding involves lots of dancing and what better way to get your guests on the dancefloor than with a live jazz or swing band?
