2015 Wedding Trends: Art Deco


In 1925 at the Exposition Internationale des Arts Décoratifs et Industriels Modernes a new style of art and architecture known as Arts Décoratif (later shortened to simply Art Deco) was brought to light. The new design style which emphasized color, geometry, and order skyrocketed in popularity and was embraced by artists, architects, and designers around the globe. In the 1960s, Art Deco made a comeback when people embraced the grand, luxurious, and modern style in countless areas ranging from interior design to jewelry. Now, almost a century after its original introduction, Art Deco is making a second resurgence in a beautiful way: weddings.

The Art Deco theme is perfect for any bride who wants to create a glamorous and extravagant feel for her wedding. This theme is a great option for a couple who wants to celebrate their marriage by throwing a party of Gatsby proportions that will have their friends and family talking about it for years to come! The stunning theme can be channeled in almost all aspects of the wedding décor including invitations, center pieces, and even the bridal gown and bridesmaid dresses.

When we received a couple new glitzy bridesmaid dresses at Deborah’s Bridal, we were inspired to channel the increasingly popular Art Deco theme in our new window display. Below are a couple pictures, including our lovely new display, to help inspire you as well!


In our new Art Deco window display the geometry, clean lines, and small extravagant details like ostrich feathers work perfectly with these sparkling floor length bridesmaids dresses to complete the elegant modern look

 Save the dates and invitations are the first items guests receive to set the theme for your wedding. Choosing a style in black, gold, and ivory with symmetrical and geometric patterns will give guests a good indication of what to expect for the big event

When it comes to your bridal gown, symmetry is key! Dresses with symmetrical bead work and patterns work best for two reasons: the details will compliment the rest of your decorations and symmetrical lines will enhance your curves to further flatter your figure. Crystals, rhinestones, pearls, and even a little bit of lace are beautiful details that amp up the glamour of an Art Deco wedding gown.

Both dresses shown are available for try on at Deborah’s Bridal and can be viewed on our website.



You don’t need to break the bank with extravagant center pieces to match the luxurious Art Deco theme. Pieces like this are totally DIY-able! Hit up your local craft store to find feathers, silk flowers, and pearls.
