1920’s Veils and Frocks

Diary of a Wedding Planner

We received an enquiry today to possibly help with the style and design of 1920s themed wedding next year. Well, I must say I am excited – I adore all things art deco and feathers and pearls make my heart flutter! Fingers crossed we’ll be working on this one as the era is one I share a passion for…

I adore the wedding fashion of the 1920s, those beautiful, beautiful long veils! Only last week I found myself yakking on to Mr Perfect about how much I adore those veils the women wore back then. We were watching a programme about King George V and it showed images of the wedding of King George VI where the late Queen Mother as we now remember her wore a real stunner of a veil. Mr Perfect said he thought they looked silly, but I guess you can’t please them all…

So it inspired me this afternoon to have a gander over Google and some original photos of 1920s weddings, and those beautilful frocks and veils, to share a few with you on the blog:

and more recently…

With love,
