1920's Speakeasy Theme/Wedding

This weekend I was part of a speakeasy themed event and it was wonderful.  I will soon  post pictures from this event with more ideas, yet while I wait to gather them I wanted to suggest a theme that is perfect for  a small, intimate, elegant and affordable wedding (of course any theme normally  can translate to larger weddings with some adjustment.)

May I suggest a wonderful upcoming designer who was  the heart and soul of designing this event, Samantha Nowlin of SIMPLELIFEDESIGN.

Setting a
budget for your wedding from the very beginning will make it easier to plan an eventthat is within your means.

The question is, then, how do you includemusic (and enhance feelings and memories) without stressing, and breaking the bank? Hint: smaller weddings, and combination wedding/music packages.
