Give your guests a taste of your roaring 1920s theme in your wedding stationery! These geometric black and gold save the date cards do just the trick.
Scallop and fan shapes are also reminiscent of 1920’s splendour and a regular feature in the period’s geometric designs. Tie your bridal shoes into your wedding theme by choosing accessories with themed accents – the scalloped style combined with the gold metallic edging on this pair screams the 1920’s, and we love it!
An iconic feature of the roaring 1920s, no wedding party is complete without a glamorous head piece. Choose styles that include plenty of sparkle and drape designs across the forehead for ultimate 1920’s glamour.
Hang pompoms and honeycombs from the ceiling, walls and beams in your venue to create a focal point – this works particularly well around a statement piece of furniture or to highlight your top or dessert table. The range of shapes and metallic tones adds a sense of luxe to this grand decor style.
Define your dance floor with decal stickers. Not only can these tie in with your theme, they can also make your reception venue feel a little more personal when customised with your newly-married names.
While the roaring 1920s might be full of grandeur and glitz, the smaller details are still oh-so important. Make sure your smaller details and table decorations still fit with the overall theme for the biggest impact. It can be as simple as choosing gold glitter and a monochrome flag that are tonal with the other pieces in this reception style, rather than brighter, more colourful options.
