“Time to drink champagne and dance on tables.”
Is there any other era more indulgent and decadent? With productions like Boardwalk Empire and The Great Gatsby showcasing the ritz and glamour of the time, it’s no wonder why modern brides -with love for all things vintage- use the decade as their inspiration when planning. Jazzymae Photography shares, “Fashion in the 1920s was centered around comfort and good times. Transitioning away from the more restrictive fashion of the earlier 1900s, women left their corsets behind. Men wore looser fitting clothing while the waistlines for women fell to the lower hip and became more revealing.” Not only were men and woman of this era enjoying the social scene while they were falling in love, they were dapper while doing so. See more inspiration from this Roaring 20’s styled shoot below:
Color choices during this period were sometimes pale and often dramatic in combination. This wedding styled shoot pays homage to the stylistic choices of the 1920’s silent film era.
The invitation suite and stationery designed for our 1920s “Silent Film” styled shoot are inspired by the muted grey and black tones of silent films. The typography chosen was also reminiscent of that era. We had fun with all of the pieces by incorporating scripted titles/headers that would correspond with a “scene” from the wedding to further help the stationery compliment the theme of our shoot.
The gown used is the v-neck version of Carol Hannah’s “Pemberly” gown. The bodice is a four-ply silk crepe with hand cut lace, and the skirt is a satin-faced silk chiffon.
