Set The Mood

You need to decorate your wedding venue to make people feel like they walked straight back into the 1920s. Finding some chairs and tables that evoke the 1920s might be difficult, but you can have some art deco patterns painted on the walls and use these same designs on your invitations, menus and place cards. Rent a classic car to arrive in style! Finding a car from the 1920s might be difficult, but you can still make an impression with a classic Cadillac or classic Rolls Royce. Imagine the sighs of awe when you step out of one of these cars in a vintage Nyree Gown from When Freddie met Lilly in Brisbane. From the soft baby tulle skirt to the rounded bodice, you will look every bit the vintage bride at your roaring-twenties themed wedding.

Follow Tradition

Getting married in a church means that you might want to follow some traditions, including religious traditions and things that are meaningful to your family. You might, for instance, want to wear an accessory or a piece of jewellery that has been in your family for generations. You might also want to wear a specific colour or style of dress depending on your religion.

Typically, gowns worn in church weddings are both modest and eye-catching. You should avoid gowns that will reveal too much skin and look for a dress with a gorgeous fabric and flattering cut so that you can still look amazing. The Jesse Gown from When Freddie met Lilly is just such a church wedding gown with its simple elegance and classic cut. Not only is it the perfect wedding gown for church, it works well for a garden wedding also.

When Freddie met Lilly Formal Girl RachelSo please tell us – with months of planning, did the FORMAL run smoothly !?
I had a great time at my formal! My dress was absolutely divine and everything i could have ever wanted. Unfortunately, leading up to the date we had a minor problem with a stain in the dress, however Vanessa was such a huge help and had it all fixed on super short notice. She’s a champ!

What dress did you choose for your big night? What sort of hair/makeup and accessories didyou have to take your look to the next level?
My dress was the blue velvet Anastasia dress. I wore my hair in a curled ponytail to complement the open back of the dress and went for a natural makeup look with a darker eye. I wore silver jewellery to match my silver belt.
