I’m not sure a true flapper dress will match your beautiful gown. Perhaps a more contemporary take on your theme would help. Maybe choose a Bridesmaid or Best Man dress designer and let each girl pick a dress they like in the same color, then add a fun 20’s head piece and more subtle details?

Hi theme twin! I have found some wonderful dresses on a few sites, Etsy, and modcloth.  I will be getting my Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses through an artsy vendor. By The Way I love your hairpiece and dress choice, looks wonderful!

I would let them pick a style in the color of your choice (gold, champagne, black, or whichever you choose!) and add 20’s elements to it… headband, etc. They’ll be much more comfortable in finding a dress for their body type! Nothing’s worse than wearing a dress that’s uncomfortable. (I have had one too many of those in my days as a BM!)

MaybeEventually:  Nataya makes beautiful vintage dresses but they are not inexpensive. They are also not a style that your BM’s could wear every day after the wedding.

I would also look at Nordstrom Rack. There are vintage inspired dresses by Adrianna Papell, Pisarro Nights, Halston Heritage etc .
