Roaring twenties wedding theme
Whether it’s the Great Gatsby or the look of gangsters, a roaring twenties
wedding theme can add a fun and unusual spin to any wedding. If you
are interested in being united in the look of the twenties, here are
some different ideas to get you started.
The 1920’s had a style all its own and with a twenties wedding theme,
planning will be enjoyable and memorable. Start by transforming your
wedding party into an era of “speakeasy” with costumes resembling Eliot
Ness, Al Capone, Lucky Luciano, Bugsy Malone, and John Dillinger. You
and your future husband can also think about dressing yourselves up
as Bonnie and Clyde.
The bride’s dress should fit into the twenties wedding theme. Have a
seamstress design one with an intermission hemline, making it shorter
in front and long in the back. Dropped waistline and pleated skirts
were a popular look in the twenties and would make a beautiful wedding
dress. For headdress, try a Juliet cap, coronet or a simple band of
silk flowers worn lower on the forehead. Don’t forget stockings (pantyhose)
that have noticeable seams. These were a big look for women of the twenties.
The bridesmaids of the roaring twenties wedding party can dress in flapper
dresses with long, dangling bead necklaces, feather boas and seamed
stockings. Remember the bright red lipstick. No twenties rendition would
be complete without it!
Zoot suits, English driving caps, suspenders and wing tip shoes were
the craze for grooms and groomsmen in the roaring twenties. Most tuxedo
shops will either carry great selections from this era or know of another
shop you can visit to find this great attire.
For a roaring twenties wedding theme, think glittering lights, rough
men, and romance. Although known for its crime age, the twenties also
became known as the Jazz Age, with the likes of flappers and the Charleston.
Music was upbeat and enjoyable, skirts were short and the economy had
everyone in high spirits. This is the feel you want to incorporate into
your wedding theme.
Think about your invitations and what you want them to say. These will
initially set the mood of your guests before they even attend your big
day. Include passwords on the invitation and have two friends stand
at the door of the reception and ask guests to recite the password if
they want to enter. Be original. Use different passwords on different
invitations, depending on the guest. If it is an old school friend,
use your nickname from high school as the password. If your grandma
had a name she called you, use this as her password. Also on the invitation,
let your guests know that although they are not required to wear attire
fit for the theme, it is welcomed and would be fun.
Name your reception tables when seating your guests at your roaring
twenties reception. Have an ‘Al Capone’ table, a ‘Bonnie and Clyde’
table, which can be used for the wedding party, and a ‘Lucky Luciano’
table. Attach guest names to long cigarette holders that were used in
Another great idea for your roaring twenties theme is to include on
the invitations that there will be contests held during the reception.
Have the disk jockey play jazz music, swing music and organize these
contests. You can include a contest for best dance and best costume.
You can also set up a booth for your guests to have their photos taken
as a souvenir to take home.
With a roaring twenties wedding theme, your wedding is sure to not be
forgotten by your guests and will make long lasting memories for you
and your ‘Clyde’.
