I recently changed the style of our wedding to suit the wonderful venue we have found. As a hippie at heart, I always imagined an outdoor, garden wedding with lots of wood and natural elements. However as a gemini, I also have a love for vintage glam….and my eye is drawn to the art deco style….(I’ve only just realised that there was a name for the style of things I kept being drawn to and picking)
I’m having some trouble meshing the two…as I don’t want to abandon ether element….So I was wondering if anyone had any ideas or inspiration pictures for decor and centerpiece elements that bring together 1920s art deco glam and rustic natural elements?
We are planning on using navy as a main colour with blush,peach,coral and orange elements and bronze accents. I also would love to incorporate peacock feathers without it getting too theme-y.
I love this
but I’m not sure how it would look with lighter colours….
Thanks!! I would really appreciate the help!

Here’s one post from WB with those colors:
navy/coral-peach-orangish/taupe wedding colors
And a post about “beachy” wedding dresses-but with a 1920s/bohemian vibe:
Here’s a wedding with some flower inspiration:
Here are some photos of your colors for inspiration:
I think a elegant with a bit of whimsy for the flowers would work-Orange Calla Lilies, Coral Parrot Tulips, Blush Wax Flowers, maybe add peach carnations and another “wild looking flower” would look awesome together.

Have you ever heard of the Jazz Age Lawn Party on Governor’s Island in NY? It’s got some serious vibe. Some ways to incorporate the Jazz Ageyness into a garden setting (though I see you’re getting married in Feb, so outdoors may not be an option), think about the wardrobe and the music. They had rustic outdoor parties in the 20s too – think about learning some Charleston! I’m dancer who participates in mainly social dance to music from the 20-40s, and I’ve seen it executed beautifully in a number of settings. 🙂

Commenting so I can come back to this, I need some Victorian/Edwardian themes as well.

No way! I’m also doing a 1920’wedding theme and using navy blue and blush pink as colors. I don’t have a picture of it, but for my center pieces I’m doing mic über mirror vase filled with blush color flowers and baby’s breath. For inspiration – think Great Gatsby. That is set in the 1920s. I’m using ostrich feathers and fake pearls for decorations as well and trying to find “vintage-y” bottles and such for decorations. My cake is huge with clean lines and romantic flowers. Let me know if you ozone up with any more ideas!

@mjoyelle: Thanks fo the suggestion….we already have a venue that’s an indoor performing arts center…but the Jazz party vibe may actually work pretty well. I will look for pictures! thanks!
