10 Roaring 20's Wedding Ideas

“They’re not your typical wedding invitation and they definitely make an impression.”

The 1920s was a huge era for film and railroads had become a normal part of life for many Americans. If you and your partner love watching old movies or traveling across the US together, consider using train or theater tickets for your RSVPs or invitations.

Most RSVPs and wedding invitations all look the same, so you can easily stand out and set the tone of your wedding.

A great way to share your wedding schedule is to create a miniature theater “playbill” or “train schedule” with all the details your guests need to know about what’s happening when and where they need to be.

Retro Travel Postcards

For The Globetrotters

Starting at: $6.56 & FREE Returns

“These postcards added a great element to our vintage travel themed wedding. We used them on tables, on walls, on backdrops behind the punch, etc. They added a nice element, and some people wrote messages to the bride and groom on them!”

All couples and guests love to record messages and memories of the day with a guest book with heartfelt advice and best wishes, so instead of providing a standard guestbook differentiate your wedding with printed “retro photos” that guests can write on.

Either find an old set of photos you love and print them out and ask guests to write their messages on the back for you. These 1920s vintage travel poster postcards make another great option!

Starting at: $6.56 & FREE Returns

03

Feathers & Beads

Pearls & Pastel For The Win

Starting at: $39.99 & FREE Returns

Courtesy BABEYOND

“BABEYOND is a dedicated, passionate team with a wide range of skillsets and professional work experience within the vintage dressing industry.”

This dress from BABEYOND is the perfect mix of classic vintage style paired with beautiful beads. Add a feather headband to complete the look!

Give your wedding even more of a Great Gatsby feel by adding feathers and beads to your floral table centerpieces, wrap strings of pearls around your bouquets, and use tall, thin vases and stands for your floral arrangements.

The key to using feathers is to stay away from brightly dyed feathers (like you’d find in a kid’s craft kit) and stick to white, black, cream, pastels, and natural feathers (these ostrich feathers are beautiful) – and the same goes for beads.

Don’t choose cheap Mardi Gras-style plastic beads, instead choose look-alike pearls, freshwater pearls, and take a day or two to go thrift store shopping and find long strands of stone beads.

Starting at: $39.99 & FREE Returns

Glamorous Gold

Go Full Glitz & Glamour

From: $9.94 $43.20 (save 77% now)

“Your guests will love finding their way with these beautiful tea plate table numbers.”

To achieve the glitz and glamour of the 20s you need to accent your black and white decorations with touches of gold.

Choose to use gold-colored chairs, gold-edged napkins, gold-accented flatware, and anywhere else it makes sense to do so. If you can, stick to the angular 20s shapes that were seen on the time.

You could even use edible gold leaf on your desserts to add a decadent touch!

05

Headbands & Ruffles

An Easy & Affordable Style Upgrade

From: $45

Courtesy Red Dress

“Who needs a tiara when you can wear me?”

Suggest the girls and ladies attending your wedding wear 1920s-themed dresses, and decorate with feathers, beads, and ruffles.

Headbands like these at Red Dress that are 20s themed are affordable, and you could even put out a basket of accessories for guests to use and take home as a memento.

You could even ask your maid of honor to throw a 1920s themed bridal shower and ask a makeup artist and a hairstylist to show guests how they can alter their makeup and hairstyle to look a little more 1920s on the big day.

For some extra fun, make a day out of it and go shopping with the girls at different vintage stores to find the perfect headband for you!

From: $45
