Come on babe, why don’t we paint the town? (bom, bom) And all that Jazz? I’m gonna rouge my knees and roll my stalkings down. (bom, bom) And all that Jazz!
Firstly, I would like to start by saying that I am a HA-HUUGE fan of the Roaring 20s and all that Jazz! Was it an era known for corruption and gangster hullabaloo? Well, yeah. Buuuut it was also a time filled with economic prosperity, trend-setting musicality and over the top fashion. There was a kind of daring romance – both scandalous and progressive – that seemed to encapsulate the 1920s, which has gone unmatched ever since.
And it’s because of that unmatched style that the Twenties have become an excellent source of for brides to find inspiration when planning their big day – scandal aside, of course. Whether it’s in the choice of dress, the kind of favors, the type of venue, equipped with Speakeasy or Cigar bar or simply the overall ambience and atmosphere created, the Roaring 20s leave brides, their grooms and all their guests with a little extra . Check out below and see what I mean:
The hubs and I actually took a lot of 1920s style and weaved it into our wedding. My favorite part? All the bridal party dudes were given a little extra swagger when we topped them off with dress fedoras and bowling caps!
And if you’re looking for some 1920′s inspired tips and tricks, feel free to check out the 2002 film, Chicago, or read F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby — two incredible representations of the times!
