Art Deco Wedding Design
Luxurious 1920s glamor is a centerpiece of the recent silver screen adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s literary landmark, The Great Gatsby, and its timeless trends have taken the wedding scene by storm. Bold beading and ostentatious jewels, accentuated with pearls and lace, and lavish decoration upon simple lines of pastel decadence characterize classic Art Deco wedding design. Gowns feature a slimming silhouette, flowing fabric, and low-cut neck and back lines.
If a traditional, simpler wedding gown better fits your taste, mirror Daisy Buchanan with more modest beading detail, a vintage brooch, or eye-catching statement jewelry pieces. Gatsby-inspired brides are also trading a traditional veil for a bedazzled headdress or feathered hairpiece. Red lipstick and soft curls finish the look perfectly.
Soft hues of ivory, blush, and mint counter the grandiose display, capturing the dreamy essence of 1920s high fashion, perfectly tender, yet chic. For wedding bouquets and centerpieces, white roses and Calla lilies are romantic and whimsical and blend exquisitely with décor accentuated by sleek geometric patterns or bursts of metallic gold. Patterns and gilding lend fabulous additions to wedding invitations and cakes.
Contrasts in elegance and bravado are keys to the romantic appeal of the classic and sophisticated Roaring 20s style. Combine shining jewels, fanciful arrangements, and your dream gown to create a wedding affair in true Gatsby style all your own.
