One of the most exciting decades to mirror your wedding after is the 1920’s – all of the glamour and grace in style and decor come together for a simply stunning wedding day. Today we’re sharing 9 ideas for an art deco inspired wedding day full of glam gold details that are very fitting for the era.
A Glam Gold and Black Color Palette
An art deco inspired wedding color palette should be full of glitz and glam. Go with black, silvers and golds for a wedding day that is truly magical.
A touch of gold foil goes a long way in your wedding invitations and gives guests an idea of what to expect at your art deco wedding.
For a touch of shimmer and romance at your ceremony, line them with golden lanterns with flickering candles. For a classic look at your reception, dress your tables with crisp black linens and add vintage gold and silver details to the centerpieces.
A black, silver and gold palette for your art deco inspired wedding will make your wedding look like it’s straight out of prohibition era.
An art deco inspired wedding isn’t complete without vintage details. Use real vintage pieces wherever you can in your wedding day, and use reproduction pieces for the rest.
Your reception will be the main point of decor, so go all out when decorating for your deco wedding day. Instead of their normal bottles, transfer your favorite liquors into vintage decanters for the perfect art deco inspired bar. Serve your hosted wines at your reception in customized, art deco inspired glassware that guest can take home with them as a special favor.
Use vintage decor on your tables as well! Bronze or gold candlestick holders with black taper candles are both elegant and trendy and fit so well with an art deco inspired wedding. Use them wherever you can in your wedding design. Gold lanterns and candle holders with lots of flickering candles will create a romantic, speak-easy feel at your reception, and sprinkle in some vintage cameras and typewriters where you can for a wedding day that truly feels art deco.
Art Deco Inspired Attire
What’s an art deco wedding without vintage-inspired attire? The dresses and tuxes at your wedding will make the era come to life at your wedding day.
Your vintage-inspired dress will be stunning, and pairing it with sparkling accessories will make you the most beautiful bride. And standing next to you, your bridesmaids will shine in their sparkly, art-deco style gowns in different shades of silver and gold.
Have you groom opt for a bolder choice in tuxedo color – a deep forest green or navy blue tux will be timeless but a bit unexpected and perfect for an art deco inspired wedding day.
With lots of sparkles and vintage style decor, your art deco inspired wedding will be a day you and your guests remember forever.
