We are having an Art Deco inspired wedding in November this year. Any ideas how to make the decor extra special?


Art Deco is a striking vintage style which works well in black and white and can give your wedding a very sophisticated look. For venue decor and table decorations think feathers and fans and angular style. A dramatic black candelabra with white candles is a fitting  1920s style centrepiece that would work well with a Deco theme.  Drape with beads or pearls for an even more 1920s Hollywood look. Another idea to fit with this theme is to place a glamorous giant Martini glass filled with peony blooms in the centre of each reception table.  These gorgeous top hat favour boxes are perfect too, as are a scattering of table gems for the finishing touch. Add these simple Art Deco bordered  table number cards. This video clip  from The Knot gives some more  ideas, and for inspiration for wedding outfits please go to Your Wedding Great Gatsby Style.
