The Roaring Twenties were a time of opulence, glitz, and glamour, and what better way to celebrate your love than by transporting your guests back to this exciting era? A 1920s-themed wedding is all about sophistication and style, and one of the key elements to nail this theme is through your décor. It’s also the perfect wedding theme for the upcoming party season around Christmas and new year.  In this blog post, we’ll explore how to recreate the charm of the 1920s with decor hire, including dancefloor, bar and lounge furniture, vintage props, stunning gold leaf trees and elegant ceiling drapes.

Ceiling Drapes

Creating an ambiance that captures the spirit of the 1920s is essential for your wedding décor. To achieve this, consider adorning the ceiling with elegant drapes. Flowing, sheer fabrics in rich, jewel-toned colours or classic black and white can transform your wedding venue into a space reminiscent of a luxurious ballroom. Our copper lame drapes are still super glamorous, however they have that Gentlemans club air about them which is more of a nod to the Peaky Blinders style than Gatsby. The drapes not only add a touch of glamour but also help to create a more intimate and inviting setting. Add fairy light strands in between the drapes for some added sparkle and romantic lighting when the sun goes down.

Black Furniture

For a 1920s-themed wedding, mixing modern elements with vintage aesthetics can create a truly unique and stylish atmosphere. Our Edge Range coffee tables, cube seats & poseur tables mixed with our black and gold chaise lounge and armchairs provide the perfect balance between the past and the present. The deep black hue adds an air of sophistication and complements the Art Deco style that was so prominent during the era. Why not customise our colours bars with all black leatherette, black glitter or a bespoke printed fascia? Guests can enjoy signature cocktails from the bar while lounging in comfort and style.

Vintage Props

No 1920s-themed wedding is complete without a touch of vintage charm. Consider hiring a variety of vintage props to accentuate the decor. Vintage gramophones, antique typewriters, and retro luggage make for fantastic nods to the era. These props can be placed throughout the venue, adding character and authenticity to the theme. Vintage props also provide great photo opportunities for you and your guests. You could create a photo backdrop with fabric drapes, our starburst backdrop stood infront of it, our black & gold chaise lounge, kentia palms and floor lamp.

Gold Leaf Artificial Tree Hire

To truly make your 1920s-themed wedding decor shine, consider incorporating gold leaf artificial trees into your design. These stunning trees serve as eye-catching table centres, enchanting entrances, and perfect backdrops for unforgettable photo opportunities. The gilded leaves and elegant design evoke the grandeur of the era, and they add a touch of whimsical romance to the ambiance.

The Black & White Dancefloor

The dancefloor is often the heart of the celebration, and for a 1920s-themed wedding, nothing sets the tone better than a black and white checkered dancefloor. This iconic design instantly transports your guests to the era of the Charleston, flapper dresses, and jazz music. With a monochromatic dancefloor underfoot, you’ll create the perfect space for guests to dance the night away while feeling like they’re in a classic speakeasy.
