1920's Flapper Style Wedding Dresses

A Unique Short Wedding Dress

The dress we most associate with the Roaring Twenties is the flapper dress.

Bucking against the confining Edwardian corsets and impractical dress length, young flappers showed their individuality by wearing knee and tea length dresses, and possibly showing a fair amount of cleavage.

For a modern bride who wants to be non-traditional, a 20's style flapper gown is a perfect choice.

Not overdone and too over the top with beading and fringe, these three wedding dresses are simple and elegant.

All three gowns are made from chiffon, which will create dramatic movement as you walk down the aisle.

The 1920's style of dress evokes scenes of garden parties and polo matches. So if your wedding will be outdoors, this style of bridal dress is a perfect choice. 

These dresses are so easy to wear, you can go straight from the ceremony to your reception, all without the need to change.

These whimsical dresses give a bride a soft, romantic Bohemian look as well.

The 20's look is created by wearing a straight, column style gown. Whether you're curvy or not, these dresses will compliment almost any figure.

To complete your Gatsby look, you can wear any of these dresses with vintage high heels and lots and lots of pearls.

For your headpiece, try a 20's style cloche birdcage veil and your chic retro look will be complete.

1920's Glamour Wedding Dress

Sleek, Sexy Wedding Dresses

The latter half of the decade was influenced by the Art Deco Movement.

Old fashioned architecture with frilly ornamentation which represented the Victorian and Edwardian eras, gave way to the sleek, geometric modern look of the Art Deco period.

Art Deco even influenced fashion. Sleek, slim-lined dresses in silky fabrics were the height of fashion.


Gone was the boyish look of the early 1920's. Women now wanted to show off their sexuality by wearing dresses that accentuated their curves.

This style is for the sexy, sophisticated bride who wants a glamorous, classy wedding gown that will make everyone say wow.

Made from luxurious satin, the dress to the right exudes 20's sophistication.

This dress brilliantly combines Art Deco and contemporary fashion.

The result is an elegant gown that gives a definite nod to the decadent era of Gatsby. 


These Art Deco gowns conjure up images of midnight rendezvous in posh nightclubs.

Floor length and elegant, they would complement any evening wedding.

In keeping with the period's smooth lines, this floor-length fit and flare gown makes a simple dress luxurious. 

 The 20's silhouette is created by the dropped waist and plunging neckline in this gown. It's a lovely modern spin on an Art Deco wedding dress.

To complete your glamorous look, pair any of these gowns with sexy high heels and diamond jewelry.

The Glamour of a Great Gatsby Dress

Wedding Dresses with Timeless Appeal

Gatsby dresses are glamorous because they are simple and timeless.

They are popular because they are refreshingly modern, yet evoke a feeling of a time gone by.

Whether you prefer the soft, Bohemian look of the early flappers, or the chic modern look of the socialites, any Art Deco gown you choose will leave your groom breathless when he sees you step into the aisle.
