For the last few years we’ve seen various 192o’s inspired weddings but the main focus has been around Great Gatsby. During 2014 we saw a shift to more of a Downton Abbey style.
A 1920’s style wedding is always one of elegance and good taste. Simplicity is key with a hint of glamour. To achieve this look here are my top tips:
There is so much choice out there and many brands using elements of this era. Some of my favourites include Elizabeth Stuart and White Rose.

Both dresses available from Timeless Bridal Wear in Trim. The Elizabeth Stuart was €2,600 and is now €1650. The White Rose dress was €1595 and is now €789!
Alternatively you could try and get an original Vintage with Dirty Fabulous.
Having looked around, it’s fair to say that the veil doesn’t get a look in. It’s all about the birdcage or hair chain.
The Kilkenny Shop in Trim has some gorgeous pieces, one of which includes the below:
Luckily in Ireland we are spoilt for choice! There are so many stunning venues that are private and public estates. Wedding Venues that fit the mould of 1920’s include:
The wedding dresses images were shot at The Station House Hotel which traditionally isn’t a 1920’s venue BUT you can see how easy it is to lend your style no matter where the venue is.
Pearl and Crystals are very important to create this look. This is easily achievable! Most wedding venues have candelabras as centrepieces – one quick fix is to get a string of pearl from Hickey’s and drape around the arms. You enough length so that it lands on the table. Most venues also have a mirrored placemat so you could get some small decorating crystals to sprinkle over the mirror. This will catch the light and add a glow to the table.
If you want to go all out on your centrepieces you could opt for something like the below:

The great thing about a theme like this is that there is so much you can do and it has plenty of room for someone to add their personal stamp.
