It would be fine. You can always do 20s style hair and makeup, and wear what you feel beautiful in, even if it doesn’t feel like it fits your theme! ๐Ÿ™‚

It’s fine! No one will notice if your dress doesn’t perfectly match the theme, no big deal.

I think its fine too.  Just because you’re going with a theme doesn’t mean you have to rock it head to toe.  I agree that your hair can be the 20’s inspired look you’re going for.  The idea sounds so fun!  I’d have a ball and so will your guests ๐Ÿ™‚

Oooh spaniel I love the idea of the hair. How cool!

I dunno if you can get your hair to stay like this – but it reminds me of Renee Zellweger in Chicago.

I majored in Costume Design in school, so I’ve spent a lot of time looking at clothes from the 20s, and quite frankly those dropped-waist flapper dresses aren’t very flattering on anyone. Even if you’re 6 feet tall, 100 lbs with no boobs, they still make you look like a big ol’ rectangle, which isn’t a good look. 

Personally, I would suggest a more 30s style bias cut gown, something like this: http://www.yourweddingwardrobe.com.au/wedding-gowns-reminicent-of-the-1930s-and-1940s-holywood-glamour/

They drape beautifully, and look great on curves.

Love the finger-waves in the hair idea! 

I agree, you don’t have to go all the way 20s – I think as long as you keep it GLAM, you’ll be good to go.  Nexus-6 is right – 30s/40s styles drape beautifully and flatter curves way more than the 20s styles, and you’ll still have that vintage-chic vibe. 

I think as long as you stay away from poufy/princessy type of gowns, you’ll be good to go.

Watters has some lovely glam vintagey inspired dresses.

Pick a dress that you feel beautiful in. Your wedding is only one day, but the pictures last a lifetime!

I think you’d have to try on some similar styles to see if they work with your body, but as a rule, bias-cut fabric looks good on almost everybody. I googled and found a picture of a model who’s not a size 00 wearing a similar dress: http://www.weddingswest.ca/Photos/ACFE75F.jpg

Also, if you’re concerned about extra pounds, you may want to stay away from satiny/shiny materials.  ๐Ÿ™‚  Lace might be a great option since it could contribute to the vintage vibe.

I say, accessorize!!! You can add extra elements to your dress after the ceremony is over.. glam it up with your hair, and I love the lace suggestion Miss Meepsie had! Sounds like lots of fun!!
