Inspiration for Your 20's Themed Wedding
Are you a fan of Great Gatsby? If so, a 20's themed wedding might be for you! As well as arranging the decor, making sure everyone wears excellent outfits and keeping the food elegant and on-theme, you should also consider music.
What music did they play in the 1920s?
The 1920s were an exceptional time to be alive. People enjoyed a period of prosperity and change, and the music generally reflects this. While the UK was influenced a lot by our friends over the pond, we also had some music styles of our own.
One of the most popular music genres in the 1920s was jazz. This genre originated in New Orleans in the USA but had made its way over to the UK by the mid-20th century. Swing dancing was developed alongside jazz music. In the USA, blues and ragtime were also popular music genres.
When most people think of doing a 1920s themed wedding, they research the US in the 1920s. This is because the 1920s was a golden age for the states. It is also where iconic novels like The Great Gatsby originated. If this is what you are aiming for, you can book live swing music to play at your wedding.
