That is a very glamourous type of party, so its easy to understand why it has so much appeal.  However, does it reflect you and Fiance at all?  I would very confused if I walked into a strongly-themed wedding that had nothing to do with the couple’s interests.

Thats a big difference! I do love the idea, as we are having a vintage, 1920’s style Gatsby-esque wedding ourselves. Ours isn’t super ‘themey’ though, just touches of things here and there – mainly because our venue was built in the ’20s and screams gorgeous 1920s style. The cigar station sounds completely awesome and I have never seen that done before so I instantly loved the idea when I read it. I adore the idea of a swing band, but I can understand why you want a DJ – plus bands can be SO expensive!

 It looks like you a little more than a year out so you still have some time. If the venue still works for this new idea then its definitely something to consider. Would you ask guests to dress in 1940’s fashion? I’ve seen a lot of theme weddings where there are dress requirements and honestly I think it can be a bit of a pain. At the same time it might be strange to have people in “regular” clothing while everything around them is so over-the-top. Our event is small and intimate (50ish people), but a formal black tie evening wedding which I think fits well with our vintage vision.

I like your new idea a little better just because it seems like right now rustic is the trend amongst every wedding I see. They’re lovely, but I like to be different so its just tiring seeing the same thing over and over. A big question – do you already have your dress? I feel like the dress should kind of go with the type of wedding you’re having. I don’t think it has to be all matchy, but a super modern dress for instance might not mesh well in an early 1900s theme.
