Beaded headbands, dapper top hats and canes, scandalously short skirts AND hairstyles, and Art Deco details every-flippin-where are a recipe for wonderfully "loose morals" and high-stepping. Embrace your inner flapper, old sport, and shimmy your way into some of our favorite Roaring Twenties-inspired weddings.

Art Deco cakes for life.

We can't leave out the ultra glam look. It's what the decade was all about.

And a jail theme? Bootleggers, gangsters, Wall Street, and speakeasies… yep, it sounds like the '20s!

Actual 1920s vintage fashion makes us wet our pantaloons.

But the best Roaring Twenties detail of all is hoofing it and having a good time. A little party never killed nobody…
