Deco Weddings was started when one vintage-loving lady who, when planning her own wedding a few years back, spent hours upon hours roaming the internet looking for art deco/vintage wedding related goodies. (this was pre-Pinterest: Can you imagine the horror???)
She found lots of beautiful inspiration scattered all over, and while there are more and more great vintage wedding resources, she decided initially to focus on the very specific aesthetic of Art Deco Weddings, which was the original name of the site. As the site and audience grew, we expanded to include elements and inspiration from both before and after the 1920s, though that era will always hold a special place in our hearts. Some more questions we get asked:
Why did you call this one thing “art deco” when it’s clearly “fill-in-the-blank”? Why did you include a wedding that had no art deco elements at all? Are you an expert of some kind? Any kind?
Decidedly not. I am just someone with a love for the general aesthetic of art deco. But to be honest, I am a fan of many things vintage or otherwise old-school. And so: you will find things on this site that aren’t strictly (or even vaguely) art deco. We’ve expanded to include all types of beautiful inspiration from throughout the 20th century (and sometimes earlier than that!)
I’m confused… what’s this whole Art Deco Shop thing about? are you guys a wedding blog, or an online store?
As of now, we are both! A small online store, to start, but we’ve decided to compile and curate some of our finds from around the web in one central location. Thus was born the Deco Shop!
Is the store for weddings and brides only?
Nope! We’re taking the opportunity to expand and feature art deco and vintage-inspired items that have nothing to do with weddings, but everything to do with being awesome. We’ve been doing this for a while on the blog with our “Art Deco Fashion” posts, as well as many of the jewelry posts, and we’re excited to be able to continue to branch out.
So are you stocking and selling all the products in the store?
We’ve sourced some gorgeous vintage and deco finds and will be directly selling a few (we’ll be adding more in the coming months.) The rest of the products you see in the store are from our partner retailers. On those pages you’ll see a “See More Details at [Partner Store]”, and you can click that button to learn more, see more images, or purchase.
Do you make money if I purchase from one of the partner retailers?
Yup! We get a small referral fee for sending you along to them. Which is why we’d greatly appreciate you clicking our links to get to the retailers; we need them to know we sent you. Those referral fees help to keep the blog up and running, and allow us to continue to source and curate vintage-inspired products from around the web. We couldn’t do it without you!
As always, if you have any questions, concerns, suggestions or otherwise, please contact us! We look forward to hearing from you!
