Recapturing the art deco period: three wedding dress ideas

Vintage never goes out of fashion and vintage weddings are still very popular in the 21st century. Fans of the glamorous and eccentric art deco period − which lasted from the 1910s through to the 1940s, fading away after the Second World War − are sure to love having an art deco-inspired wedding with all the necessary accessories and details to go with the period and the style.

If you are just such a fan and have decided that you would like an art deco-themed wedding, it won’t be difficult to find some beautiful wedding dress designs to match your chosen theme.

Why choose an art deco dress?

Art deco dresses look just as stunning today as they did nearly 100 years ago. They are eccentric, glitzy and outrageously stylish, not to mention incredibly feminine and exuding timeless beauty. Dresses can vary from flowing beaded gowns to flirty flapper-style dresses, complete with feathers and tassels, for those women who don’t mind bucking the trend and going against tradition in their bid to recapture the gorgeous style of Gatsby’s era.

Three design ideas

Now that you are sold on the idea of an art deco dress, it is time to consider what particular design will suit you. You might want to try a sleek sleeveless A-line gown, enhanced with plenty of beading and flaring out into an attention-grabbing petal skirt; alternatively, for something even more dramatic, how about a gorgeous beaded ruffle gown complete with train? If you like long flowing gowns such as these, be sure to check out the truly breathtaking offerings created by designer Eliza Jane Howell. Another option is the bolder style of a flapper-inspired wedding dress with fringes and beading, enhanced by elegant long gloves and other 20s accessories for that stand-out art deco style!
