1920s Wedding Style. It was the Jazz Age… The Roaring Twenties!  Art Deco design was influencing fashion and decor. The spirit of the era was symbolized by flappers, bobbing their hair, doing the Charleston, and slipping away for a party at the speakeasy.

Women wore their lips in a bee-stung pout imitating “It Girl” Clara Bow. Faces were powdered pale and eyes were dramatic in their dark kohl eyeliner treatment. Eyebrows were plucked into a thin, downward sloping arch.

Brides of the 1920s Vintage Wedding Style wore daringly short gowns, sometimes revealing the knee! The style of the time called for drop waists and flattened bosoms. The veil was a statement of drama usually much longer than the dress and trailing the floor with a headpiece cloche, crown-like tiara, or a lacy bandeaux . Bridal bouquets were quite large (perhaps to cover those daring glimpses of leg) with ribbon streamers of lovers knots trailing nearly to the floor. Popular flowers included orange blossoms and chrysanthemums. The jewelry of the period is quite exquisite and reflects the art deco influence.

Leading men such as the dashing Rudolph Valentino epitomized romance and would be seen to wear the butterfly collar with their cutaway coat tuxedo, along with a new trend, the wristwatch.

Not to be forgotten, we are talking about the Prohibition Era.  Consider serving drinks from the bar in teacups, speakeasy style. Tell your bartender to wear his best spats and serve up some of the cocktail creations of the era like the Bee’s Knees, The Tuxedo #2 or the Mary Pickford.

The Jazz Age will offer an abundance of musical offerings to your event. Set the mood by playing music by Louis Armstrong, Cab Calloway, and Paul Whiteman Orchestra. Hire a Dixieland Jazz Band to accompany your event as you and your guests flood the dance floor to partake in the Charleston!
