So we’ve come to the last in this series of Art Deco themed Snippets, Whispers & Ribbons, and of course there could be no more fitting finale than looking at the piece de resistance of any wedding inspired by the Jazz Age – a wedding dress with pizazz! And with all things Art Deco still so popular, even 3 years after Baz Luhrman’s The Great Gatsby (the film that sparked this revival) was released, brides looking to channel their inner Daisy Buchanan are positively spoiled for choice when it comes to their dress! So here are just a few of my favourites…..
Perfectly embodying the opulence, glamour and razzmatazz of the 1920s and 1930s, these vintage inspired wedding dresses, by some of the most creative and very best bridal designers, are awash with elegant silhouettes and exquisite Art Deco detailing, from dropped waists and elaborate embellishments; to the more gracefully refined side of the Art Deco era captured in silk satin bias cuts and cowls draping. Whichever look you are going for, I am sure you will find a style you love for your day amongst these diverse and downright gorgeous gowns…..

Aren’t they all simply divine??? If you’re looking however for something a little more authentic, do go and see the lovely ladies over at Mill Crest Vintage – they have the biggest and most beautiful collection of authentic vintage wedding (and bridesmaid!) dresses I have ever laid my eyes on. In fact I shared a few of my faves from their Art Deco collection a couple of weeks ago, which you can see hereif you missed it.
Well, I think that has pretty much exhausted Art Deco! After looking at the most perfect bridal hair accessories, decadent wedding invitations, delicious wedding cakes, fabulous bridesmaid dresses, beautiful bouquets, dapper grooms, elegant hair & makeup, fabulous decor ideas and of course, today, wedding dresses, I can’t think of a single aspect of your day that we haven’t covered (do let me know if you can!), all together they should help you plan the perfect Art Deco wedding, a vision of Gatsby-esque glamour and a celebration than Jay himself would be honoured to host. Next week it is on to…… the 1950s!
Have a wonderful weekend everyone,
