Fabulous feathers

Feathers are key to vintage Art Deco style, but dramatic feather centrepieces can look a little dated these days. Whatever your colour scheme, bring your feather décor up-to-date by fusing Art Deco glamour with vintage styling in a fun way.

A hint of glimmer

Style your wedding with glassware and mirrored keepsakes. Crystal glasses, decanters, candle holders, vases and whisky bottles are all great items to incorporate into your table design.

A touch of glam

Vintage bride

The Gatsby glamour-inspired gown is an excellent choice for a modern, vintage-style wedding. Choosing the right jewellery, hairstyle, and hair accessories also allow you to play down the look if you want to create something a little more subtle.

Complementary colour palettes

Bobby dazzler

Black and white

Consider monochrome. The traditional Art Deco colour palette featured rich colours of gold, ivory, black and white – all of which are still popular in modern day.

Perfect pastels

For a subtler look, throw in some soft, modern colours such as mint or blush. Accenting the tradition Art Deco colour palette with these pastel touches softens the overall look.

A stylish celebration

Iconic venue

Choose the right venue. Wedding venues with a sense of grace and grandeur work particularly well with this theme. Gosfield Hall, Angel House and Kirtlington Park are just some of the venues you might like to choose.

Fabulous food and drink

Add a touch of glamour and fun to your celebration with a statement drinks reception or dessert table. Lay out your delightfully designed snacks and cocktails on glam furnishings or against geometric designs.

Sip of something special

Celebrate with cocktails. Forget Pimms and opt for a 20s classic. And for something to really complement your Gatsby-style wedding, why not impress your guests with a champagne tower?
