1920s Style DIY Wedding || Jennifer + Craig

This lovely 1920s style DIY wedding from Lindsie Grey Weddings  is fabulous inspiration for brides and grooms who want to bring their own sense of vintage style to the big day, without necessarily having a purely vintage venue or surroundings. Each careful art deco and speakeasy-inspired touch really makes this beautiful wedding shine!

1920s Style DIY Wedding

From the bride:

We wanted our guests, many who were traveling from out of state, from Canada, and other parts of the world, to enjoy themselves and not worry about a thing and have a blast. What better way than sharing our love for craft cocktails, whisky, speakeasies and jazz?

We really found ways to integrate the 1920’s style into a modern hotel, blending two eras that we love through the decor, craft cocktails, flowers, and our outfits. I made most of the decor myself, Pinterest and Michael’s are really great, and tried to capture the spirit of the speakeasy.

Art Deco Amethyst Jewelry | February Birthstone

February is here, it’s extra long this year, and (depending on your location) you might be sweating it out in 90 degree heat, or halfway frozen in a polar vortex. So let’s enjoy some escapism for a bit, and surround ourselves with beauty! Namely: some incredible art deco amethyst jewelry, in honor of this gorgeous purple-hued February birthstone.

Love the unique six-sided shape on that gorgeous ring. Also unique: this yellow gold ring with a bold oval cut amethyst and a geometric carved setting:

One great thing about amethysts (besides everything) is how they look gorgeous set in both yellow and white gold. Here’s another yellow gold beauty, a lovely 1930s era diamond and amethyst pendant, from the aptly named Gatsby Jewels:

Well, its happened. We’ve fallen in love again, hard. Because we recently came across the designs of Eliza Jane Howell (actually designer Gill Harvey: the name is an homage to her grandmother) and we’re absolutely, crazily, 100% smitten with these incredible 1920s wedding dresses.

Wow. And hooray! This post is going to be a photo-heavy, vintage perfect, art deco explosion because there are just too many incredible gowns we need to show you. I tried to narrow it down some… but I failed. Sorry! (actually…NO I’M NOT. Please click for larger images, and enjoy!)
