Wedding Wednesday: A Roaring 20's Affair

A modern twist on a 1920's that even Gatsby himself would approve!

Going for the modern take on flapper fashion, drop waist and graphic art deco details in silky fabrics and bias cuts recall that bygone era.

Staying true to 1920's tradition, bride's dresses were shorter, about ankle length, incorporating the trends of the time like gauzy fabrics and bias cuts.

While gowns were short, veils were still floor or knee length and ornate.

Other hair accessories included chaplet head pieces with orange blossoms on either side of the band.

For the bridesmaids, a similarly gauzy style just a tad shorter than the bride's in a soft romantic color.
