The Great Gatsby Wedding

September 12th, 2013

People can’t get enough of the roaring twenties after the recent movie release of The Great Gatsby, which was inspired by the F. Scott Fitzgerald novel. Couples are continuing the buzz by throwing their own Gatsby-inspired wedding with vintage flair and a night of dancing and partying that would put Daisy Buchanan and Jay Gatsby to shame.

We have taken to Pinterest and found some great ideas on incorporating this theme that couples will love.

It wouldn’t be a Gatsby wedding without a 1920’s inspired wedding dress. Make sure to pack on the shimmer and art deco details to capture the full effect.

One of the most recognizable pieces from the 20’s era is the headpiece and pearls. With these accessories and a killer dress, the bride is sure to stun her groom and guests as she makes her way down the aisle.

Top the wedding off with a decked out cake fit for Daisy Buchanan herself! Making it a focal point at the reception is certain to inspire.

Whether it’s a few touches of this memorable era at a wedding or a full-scale roaring gala, the 1920’s has made a huge comeback in the last year, and it’s a theme we can’t get enough of. So pop a bottle of your best champagne, put on your flashiest flapper dress and get planning!

See You Soon,
