“Password?” The roaring 20’s was an inspiring time; the prohibition spurred the need for bootlegging and speakeasies. For those who do not know, a Speakeasy is an underground bar. They usually required passwords in order to be admitted. Nowadays, there are bars modeled after them. But bar owners are not the only ones using the roaring 20’s as their theme. Today, we are going to tell you about a wedding we helped plan with such theme in mind. So I ask again, “password?”

​On November 12, 2016, Mimi and Aaron celebrated their dream wedding which was truly inspired by the Roaring 20’s. During the planning stage, their inspiration boards were overflowing with ways to incorporate the theme into the décor. In an ironic twist the wedding reception was held at the Fraternal Order Police Lodge #25.

In order for the guests to enter the reception space they had to pass through a fake speakeasy door and frame. The door had a sliding peephole, there was someone on the other side of the door asking for the password. Inside, the tables were decorated with black linens which made the green color of the napkin eye-catching. Placed on each napkin were the guests’ party favors. At first glance the favor is an old fashion looking key with a green tassel. Upon further inspection it was not a key at all, it was in fact a small metal gun being fired. To some, the gun may seem out of place with this theme; however, the “Tommy Gun” is actually where the Roaring 20’s got its name. Every little detail matched the theme perfectly and we were fascinated to be taken back to the prohibition era.
