Choosing a theme for your wedding is a crucial decision. As @LaVimage says:
“The logic behind having a wedding theme is simple – less choice, less stress. As soon as you nail down a general inspiration and the color palette you want to work with, you toss everything else out the window.”
One of the most popular shows on TV, Peaky Blinders has a stylish aesthetic, a great soundtrack and a loyal following. If you’re one of the millions of people who tunes in eagerly each week to see what Tommy Shelby and the rest of the gang are up to, or if you just love the look of their 1920s costumes and haircuts, a Peaky Blinders wedding theme could be the answer. To help you decide if this unique look is right for you, here are a few ideas for how you can give your wedding day the Peaky Blinders treatment.
One of the most enjoyable parts of planning a Peaky Blinders themed wedding is organising the outfits. Happily, the best way to get inspiration and ideas for your 1920s wedding attire is by sitting down and watching a few episodes of your favourite show. Take note of the types of suits, hats and accessories worn by the men and the style of gowns worn by the women. Many specialist tailors and wedding dress shops will offer 1920s style outfits and you can accentuate your theme with a few well chosen accessories. Let your guests know about your dress code well in advance to ensure they have time to source the perfect outfit.
The Shelby family’s distinctive haircuts are one of the most iconic aspects of the show. If you and your partner are committed to the idea of a Peaky Blinders wedding, he’ll need to head to the barbers for a trim. To get maximum impact from the haircut, convince all of the men in the bridal party to get matching ‘dos.
A Peaky Blinders wedding offers the perfect excuse to go all out on your wedding transport. Hire a classic 1920s car to take you to the venue or go even more retro with a horse and cart. If you need to transport your guests from the ceremony to the reception, rent an old fashioned bus for the journey to keep the theme going strong.
You can have a lot of fun with a Peaky Blinders wedding when it’s time to hit the dancefloor. As well as loading the playlist with songs from the show, you can hire a 1920s band for the evening and really get the party started. Fun, energetic and easy to dance to, music from this era is the perfect choice for an action packed evening.
