One of the best sources for wedding theme inspiration, in my opinion, comes straight from movies. The film Atonement came on HBO about a week ago and that’s what got my juices flowing to write some posts on Art Deco inspiration. Honestly, when I watched Atonement in the theater, I found the storyline to be unbearably boring. It was painful to endure sitting through the entire film as I restlessly kept anticipating the movie to pick up.  Seeing the movie again on TV, I decided to give it another shot. It was a little better the second time around, but there is no denying this film is aesthetically pleasing to the eye dripping with Art Deco eye candy. If you are a bride planning a vintage wedding, there’s a wealth of ideas to gain by observing the details in period pieces. For you Art Deco brides, here are some pics from the movie:


Even if you found Atonement as boring as I did, you have to agree that seeing Keira Knightley’s green dress alone is worth sitting through the movie. It’s definitely a memorable costume design that will go down in film history. This gown has a couple of those Art Deco elements: feminine, fitted style, flowing, silk/satin material, draping fabric, bias cut, and low-cut back.

For Art Deco style for the groom, check out James McAvoy’s clean, classic tuxedo. Also, if you look closely at Keira Knightley’s wrist, you can get an idea for Art Deco style jewelry.

I’ll leave you with some images of one of my favorite Art Deco weddings. In case you haven’t already seen it, this wedding is all kinds of Art Deco eye candy to drool over. Photos taken by Jessica Johnston.

    I totally agree with you about Atonement and Keira Knightley, her styling made the movie worth it and I couldn’t take my eyes of the green dress and the way it flowed.
