Celeste and George's 1920s wedding

A while back a reader emailed me with pictures of her 1920s wedding to post on my blog. This post is a little overdue — sorry, Celeste and George! — but I finally got around to it!

Here you are — Celeste and George's fabulous 1920s wedding!

(Okay, I'm a shoe girl, so please excuse me a moment while I drool over Celeste's sparkly T-strap shoes...)

Celeste wore a more modern gown for the ceremony, but the transportation was totally 1920s...

Celeste changed into a gorgeous white flapper gown and boa for the reception. Here she and George are with their flapper bridesmaid:

I don't know who the gentleman is in this picture, but I love his outfit!

Even the kids were on board! I love it!

Regarding dancing and music, Celeste said:

I noticed the section on your blog about the Charleston. I just wanted to let you know that it can be done. Myself and about half of my 65 guests danced it for a couple hours straight (of course with slower ones in between). But it was a riot! And everyone, down to my DJ, said they did not expect my music choice to go off so well (I stuck STRICTLY to 1920s music).

Congratulations, Celeste and George!

What a fun post!! She didn't by any chance tell you where she got her fringe dress did she? (The one she put on after the wedding) - it's exactly what I am looking for!

She didn't! But I'll let her know someone is asking, so that she can come on over and answer the question herself. :o)

I got my dress from a website called Unique Vintage, which can be found at http://www.unique-vintage.com/
I don't think they have that same style available anymore, but it is a good website to hunt for retro and 1920s gear.

Stevi, Celeste's dress was purchased from the website she mentioned in her comment, but as she said they don't have it anymore. However it sounds like a good source for similar costumes.

Lepkugen, thanks for coming back and I hope Celeste's information helps you find your dress!
