Top 5 Art Deco Wedding Trends

Art deco weddings are super in this year, and this style is one of my personal favorites. It’s just SO glamourous, and can really be done any time of the year. When this wedding trend first emerged, I had absolutely no idea what the term “art deco” actually meant.

But just to give you some background, art deco can be defined as “an influential visual arts design style which first appeared in France after World War I … combines traditional craft motifs with Machine Age imagery and materials … often characterized by rich colors, bold geometric shapes, and lavish ornamentation”. [Thank you, Wikipedia]

After doing some more research, here are some must have art deco wedding trends for this season.

1. Black and Gold
This trend usually mixes black containers or wedding accessories with gold stems or glittery accents.

2. Feathers Galore
The art deco theme is partial to the large ostrich feathers popping out of wedding centerpieces and accenting hairpieces.

Use  burgundy wedding flowers to add some drama to your cream colored art deco wedding bouquet.

Love this wedding cake, but this geometric  trend can be used in other wedding decor too.

5. Nude + Jewels
The mixture of these two styles is a play on the glam simplicity of the art deco theme. Many brides also marry these two in their wedding dress.

Erica’s Fall Wedding Flower Inspiration Board

Erica writes:
“Hello, I’m getting married next October at my soon to be father-in-law’s house. We are getting married outside by the lake they own. We are having a causal wedding it is going be very small. I want to incorporate fall colors, my favorite flowers are gerbera daisies and sunflowers. My bridesmaids dresses are going be either black or brown, and the grooms men are going to wear shirts and ties and pants. I’m having a hard time coming up with some flower arrangement ideas. Please help me!!
Thanks a lot, Erica”

Erica, I created your inspiration board with flowers in red, orange, and yellow — the perfect fall colors! I think the bouquets and wedding arrangements would look beautiful made up with yellow sunflowers, red roses, and orange gerbera daisies. For the bouquets, wrap a black (or brown) satin ribbon around the bouquet stems to complete the look. For the centerpieces, why not add in some curly willow for added height and more of that “fall” look. I hope this helps give you some ideas!

Ms. Leblanc’s Ivory, Gold, and Pink Wedding Inspiration Board

Ms Leblanc writes:
“My wedding is in the Spring of 2011. My bridesmaids are wearing harvest gold satin dresses. We originally planned to marry November 2010, and gold is a wonderful fall color. Since I love it so much, I decided to stick with it. My dress is ivory and the gold compliments it well. My questions are: Would the bridesmaids bouquets look nice in shades of pink, wrapping the stem in ivory or gold? I will carry ivory flowers. The reception tables will have an ivory table cloth, with a sheer ivory with sparkles overlay. The chair covers are ivory with a sheer gold chair tie. I plan to use eiffel tower vases as the centerpiece for each table. I wanted to do the flowers in shades of pink and ivory. Flowers would include: pink tulips, pink roses, ivory roses, white hydrangeas for contrast, and greenery. I don’t really want to do red flowers because everyone does ivory, red, and gold. I don’t want a Christmas look since it is a Spring wedding. Thanks!”

I think that the color palette you have chosen as well as the flower types are perfect! I love the soft pink and ivory with the gold dresses. I created you an inspiration board with the flower you would like your bouquet to be made out of so you can see how beautiful it all looks together! Finish your bouquets look by wrapping a gold ribbon around the stems and accenting with ivory pearl pins. Congratulations!
