Ideas for incorporating the '20s into a modern celebration.
For starters, selecting a venue such as The Oviatt in downtown Los Angeles, which was built in 1927 and is an excellent example of art deco architecture at its grandest, is an ideal way to set the tone for a roaring '20s reception. There's no need to scour the town looking for a vintage wedding dress when designers such as Claire Pettibone naturally infuse elements of the era's fashions into her gowns today. And red lips combined with a stylish bob are requisite finishing touches to completing this bridal look.
This Gatsby-inspired save-the-date will absolutely help guests get excited about an upcoming 1920s celebration. Pretty parasols will shade ladies from the summer sun, while keeping in line with the theme of the day. At the end of the night, you and your groom will make quite the statement as this 1927 Packard whisks the two of you away in classic luxury. Last but not least, these vintage-inspired purses would be the perfect bridesmaid's gift.
The Fun Extras
You may be surprised to learn that some items you know and love got their start during this innovative period, such as Chanel N°5, which was released in 1921, or cocktail rings, which were as much of an accessory staple then as they are now. These glasses are a chic nod to one of the favorite cocktails of the day: the gin martini. T-strap heels reminiscent of the adorable pair below, made it easy for party gals to dance the night away without worrying that their footwear might fly off their feet. It was all about looking good and having fun!
