From Leonardo DiCaprio and Carey Mulligan starring in the hugely popular remake of The Great Gatsby, to Kris Jenner’s recent 60th birthday party, the glitz and glamour of the 1920’s is hugely on trend at the moment! It’s no wonder then, that the 1920’s vintage wedding theme has never been so popular.

1920’s themed weddings

If you’re planning a vintage themed wedding then firstly let us say, bravo!  The vintage glitz and glamour of the 1920’s is un-rivalled and whether it’s sequin embellished flapper dress or an opulent champagne saucer, vintage accessories are fabulous. To help you create a show stopping 1920’s wedding to remember, we’ve created these a few top tips for those planning a vintage themed wedding:

Invite your guests to join in with a vintage or 1920’s dress code

The first great thing about hosting a vintage themed wedding is that your guests can join in the fun too.  For ladies this could be anything from a shimmering head dress to an all-out sequin gown. Male guests can also don their best three piece suits or tweed accessories to ensure they look the part.

Source 1920’s props

Keep your guests involved with the 1920’s vintage wedding theme by supplying props. Feather headdresses, spectacles, braces and monocles are all great ideas. Perhaps you could even work the props into a photo booth for your guests to enjoy?

Choose 1920’s table names

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

Book a vintage wedding theme band

With an unbeatable bop, jazz music provides the perfect backdrop for your guests to dance the night away at your vintage themed wedding. And there’s no better way to include jazz music within your wedding than with a live band.
