The Art Deco Era is back and it is fast becoming a popular theme for weddings especially since the release of the popular film The Great Gatsby and the increasing popularity of 1920’s themed events. So if you are a fan of this era (as I am!) and are looking for inspiration then look no further as I have compiled a few of my favourite Art Deco inspired wedding ideas to help you plan your Special Day!

Art Deco means ‘decorative art’ and as the movement originated in the 1920’s it is heavily associated with 1920’s flapper girl fashion, strong clear lines, vibrant colours and patterns. Geometric shapes and intense colour schemes are also very prominent.

As Art Deco is so bold and elegant it can easily be incorporated into any wedding and creates a really lavish and fun affair!  So now for some ideas………



I love both of these wedding invitations featured by Oh So Beautiful and Elsie May Designs.  Both designs feature strong lines and have an air of elegance!

If you are going to do it…then why not do it properly and set the scene with an Art Deco venue or Art Deco back drop for your wedding photos!

The Livery Hall at Drapers Hall, City of London is the perfect setting for pure elegance. It can seat up to 270 for lunch or dinner, serve up to 350 buffet guests and accommodate up to 450 for a cocktail party.  In addition, Leadenhall market is only a short walk away and a perfect ocation for your wedding photos!
