Art Deco wedding ideas

Take yourselves through a Great Gatsby adventure with these amazing art deco inspired wedding ideas!

We all love an Art Deco wedding, that ever so stylish Great Gatsby look, perfectly suited to a city celebration and marvellous for winter with elegant lighting. When it comes to décor, your choices are endless. Here are just a few of our favourite things…

All About Eliza

Let’s set the scene with the dress. No one does Art Deco better than designer Eliza Jane Howell. Every one of her designs would suit the Great Gatsby style, but we particularly love ‘Thelma’.

Up Close and Personal

Once you’ve found the gown, it’s time to look at accessories. An elegant head dress, dramatic make up and expertly ‘coiffed’ hair is a must for the Art Deco bride.

Beautiful Blooms

Bouquets and posies can be contemporary and dramatic or offer a more ‘antique vintage’ look. We love this bouquet with splashes of colour and bold anemones.

The Art Deco Table

On to your tables which should positively ooze glamour. Think simple and chic with elegant floral arrangements, monotone colours and a splash of metallic. Black table linen sets the scene for an evening wedding.

Fabulous Feathers

Feathers are your friends when it comes to setting the Art Deco scene. Consider displaying marabou feathers in vases as an alternative to flowers.

Decorate from Above

Paper lanterns and balloons add interest to your room. Stick to white, gold and black, hanging from the ceiling.

Here, the black and white balloons co-ordinate perfectly with the Art Deco floor…

Setting the Scene

Old gramophones make excellent props – taking us back to the Art Deco era. Adorn with feathers and flowers, and perhaps place your guest book on the same table. When it comes to music, consider having a live band.

Classy Chairs

Along with feathers and paper lanterns, pearls are a great décor addition. Of course, you could decide to wear them, but they look equally lovely hanging from the back of chairs or included in floral arrangements.

Time for a Cocktail

This elegant wedding deserves sophisticated drinks! Cocktails served in sleek martini glasses are the way forward. Of course, you’ll also need a cute sign and a handsome cocktail waiter with a classic cocktail shaker!

Champagne Dahling?

If you’re feeling generous, miniature bottles of Champagne make wonderful favours. Present them on a tray in the centre of each table and they also become your centrepiece!

Have your Cake…

The Art Deco style is perfectly suited to a wedding cake. Choose a simple, elegant, tiered cake with either round or square tiers and adorn with geometric shapes, monochrome and gold. This isn’t the time for frills and ribbons.
