Skip the traditional veil and opt for a fun feathered headpiece reminiscent of a 20s flapper girl. It will pair nicely with the beaded, lace gown you choose to walk down the aisle in.

Feathers don’t just belong in your hair on the big day, though. Add them as accents to your bouquet and centerpieces to really nail the retro theme.

If you’re a less traditional bride, opt for gold macaroons (instead of a cake) to satisfy your guests’ sweet cravings. Glass coverings and hanging crystals only add to the allure of the presentation.
