What is an Art Deco Wedding Dress and What are Some Common Features?
Set apart by their geometric elements of design and opulence, Art Deco wedding dresses are an excellent choice for the bride with a vintage yet glamorous bridal style. Art Deco gowns often feature beading, metallic embellishments or threading, geometric shapes and long lines or streamlined silhouettes.

What is the Difference Between Modern and Art Deco/Vintage Wedding Dresses?
Art Deco and modern wedding dresses focus on clean lines (think sheath, column and fit-and-flare styles). Where they differ is that Art Deco and vintage bridal gowns tend to have an abundance of detail, whether from beading, linear styles of lace, metallic threading or all of these elements combined.
Many of today’s modern wedding dresses have fewer or no embellishments and may be more trendy than timeless. For the bride who wants an Art Deco look for the modern age, our True Crew will help you find a gown that combines elements of each look.
