For many modern brides and grooms, it’s the perfect vibe for a wedding.
Baz Luhrmann’s Great Gatsby film remake rekindled interest in 1920s style, and on television, even the prim Granthams of Downton Abbey have left staid Victoriana for high-spirited dance clubs – or at least Cousin Rose has.

“The sophisticated beauty and elegance of the period is the perfect inspiration for a wedding.
The theme allows couples to honor the past and bring this lively age to life in a creative and bold way,” says Marsha Hunt, co-owner with Bridget Connell of Haute Flower Boutique in Minneapolis.

both contemporary and traditional, she said.
The goal is to find “that happy medium between being completely poised but also letting loose,” says Shira Savada, Real Weddings Editor at Martha Stewart Weddings.
