Planning a posh 1920’s theme wedding all starts with the venue. For an indoor ceremony, a mansion sets the scene with loads of built-in opulence. If you’re in the Atlanta area, be sure to check out Chateau Elan. And for outdoor weddings, a lawn with built in charm like a botanical garden - can provide an elegant backdrop to a beautiful night. Our friends at Le Bam Event & Design Studio offer both spectacular indoor and outdoor options as well.
2. 1920’s Wedding Invitations
The right invitations can give your guests a glimpse of what’s to come. Set the stage with class and style with art deco inspired invitations. Be sure to check out Deco Weddings for inspiration.

3. 1920’s Wedding Dress & Tuxedo
(Singing) Here comes the bride…. Take it from a performer - there’s nothing like dressing the part - to make you feel the part. And from all the Roarin’ 20’s & Great Gatsby theme weddings we’ve been apart of - this is the one area where we see brides get a little frazzled. Finding the perfect dress can be difficult enough, so finding the perfect art deco dress can seem impossible at times. But you’re in luck! Check out Badgley Mischka’s 20 Gatsby Worthy Wedding Dresses to shop, or just for inspiration.
4. 1920’s Bites & Bubbles
Let them eat cake! For a Roarin’ 20’s theme wedding, a cake in gold - or black & white with Art Deco details - will add the right pinch of classic charm. Then just add other desserts in black & white, and make sure the champagne flows all night. And for the non-champagne drinkers, signature cocktails such as Mint Julep’s, Side Cars, Bees Knees, Gin Rickeys, and Old Fashion’s should satisfy even the most refined connoisseur.
5. 1920’s Entertainment
Entertainment – our favorite… From Cigarette Girls distributing cigars, candies, and wedding favors – to live Charleston performances - there’s nothing like an energetic group of flappers to spark the atmosphere of the 1920’s. Great Gatsby themed performers make a great addition for photo opportunities as well. And our Roarin’ 20’s show is a hit with all crowds and perfect for speakeasy themed events. Just CONTACT US for more info.
6. 1920’s Wedding Favors
After all that celebrating, it’ll be time to send your guests off with a little keepsake of your special occasion. Whether you want to display your wedding favors at the exit of your reception, or incorporated into the night – the right wedding favors will put the final roarin’ 20’s touch on your big day. Be sure to check out Haute Papier’s glam Art Deco notebooks at Martha Stewart Weddings, or Champagne Wedding Bubbles at the Wedding Outlet.
7. Jay Gatsby Grand Finale
Now it wouldn’t be a Roarin’ 20’s wedding without a grand finale for the night. To wind down the night in true Jay Gatsby (and Atlanta) style, let it rain metallic confetti as your guests head to the door for a spectacular display of fireworks. If a fireworks display is out of budget, make an exit through an aisle of romantic sparklers as you hop into your vintage Rolls Royce to live happily ever after...
