I need help– We’re contemplating a 1930’s Speakeasy theme to fit our venue for our August wedding, with navy blue and apple green as our colors. Would that even work? I have a ballgown, but I’ll be doing a bright red lip. The guys will be in charcoal suit vests and navy ties…
I don’t know I’m struggling with a clear direction and need help!
Also, any suggestions for centerpieces?
Here’s our venue (we won’t have those tables– we’re doing caberet seating)

That sounds beautiful! Your colors sound like my colors – it’ll look great at the speak easy! 😀

@emilyrose114: I think that is an amazing idea!! That is one of my favorite areas! My friend is having a vintage type wedding. She collected old wine bottles and decoupaged them with different things and it looks really cool. She’s using that as a centerpiece along with books, candles, lace, pearls etc. Not sure if something like that would work for you, but I thought it was a really creative idea! Btw what color will your bridesmaids wear?!

sounds like fun! and i like the look of your venue. how are you planning on using the colours there? our colours are really only for bouquets and ceremony decorations, once we get to the reception we’re just going with the nice ambience of the venue!

I LOVE navy and green but it seems to preppy for a Speakeasy theme.
I picture black and white with metallic accents. I LOVE both ideas but I’m not sure they go together.
For centerpieces I’d use ostrich feathers and lots of candles!

for more inspiration
very cool if you ignore details – speakeasies were in the 20’s- the Rat Pack not till later

@EmilyJoy: Thanks for the ideas!!
All of the bridesmaids will be wearing different navy blue dresses.

The other thing I wanted to throw out there is that I really want to use farmers market flowers (so cheap and so beautiful!). So any centerpiece ideas that I could incorporate those would be great (my cousin is going to do the design!)

You could use liquor decanters or bottles , or cocktail shakers for vases

@polkadotgirl: that’s what I’m not sure about. originally i was thinking burlap runners with vases and wildflowers and having colors mainly be for attire… I don’t know though; I’m so confused!

Sounds like a fun theme, but keep in mind that speakeasies are from the 1920s, not 30s. The last formal prohibition period was in the United States and it ended in 1933.
