Manhattan-based couple George and Matt were the stars of this vintage-inspired two-groom wedding inspiration. It was all Art Decor glamour of the Gatsby era brought into modern times. You’ll definitely want to see the champagne tower of antique glasses, glittering macarons, and magnificent six-tiered wedding cake (nearly as tall as the grooms!), frosted and gilded in icing reminiscent of Erté, with beads cascading down the sides.
In Romania, we kept the ceremony traditional, which is itself offbeat because it’s like a time capsule — orthodox traditions reminded me of this year’s Met Gala. For the LA party, I wanted all local greens: palms to match the invites (and bridesbabes getting-ready outfits!) and succulent gold terrariums and little vases that doubled as favors. I wanted my 12 bridesmaids to pick their own dresses. The only rules were to pick a metallic or navy blue outfit they would love.
Is your bridal vision is more “vintage chic,” or maybe art deco with a bit of “old Hollywood glam” thrown in for good measure (kind of like the lovely lady pictured here) rather than “poofy princess”? Then you’re going to want to sit tight and do some serious scrolling on this post about our sponsor Blue Velvet Vintage. We’re talking some serious Downton Abbey vibes here — from dresses that would have made the Dowager Countess nod approvingly, to dresses that would have caused quite the stir…
The groom comes from a big wedding-loving Assyrian family, the bride wants to elope discreetly. Sometimes an Old Hollywood vibe is the draw that brings a reluctant bride around. Have some classic movie place cards, lots of feathers, some glowing and happy parents, and Old Hollywood glamour and everyone will go home happy. Plus they had some really sweet audience involvement during the ceremony.
1939 was the backdrop for this romantic wedding with a Quaker ceremony. With tons of flowers, immaculate decor, and a fabulous venue, it is easy to see the love that went into the planning. Plus, the reception had era-appropriate cocktails that seemed to make people ready to party — even the bride’s mom. This era-inspired theme week is rocking my world!
A shared passion for the 1920s, ample props and costumes, and a historic (and haunted!) prison setting well worthy of the task — looks like a roaring wedding for any flapper at heart. The best part is that this couple’s guests totally got into the the theme! It’s the best thing any theme wedding can have: commitment to the bit!
