The 1920s have long been inspiration for many weddings â€“ and the Great Gatsby takes place in a time of opulence and celebration, so itâ€™s no wonder brides and grooms like to recreate the fashion and decor. There are so many ways to use the influence of art deco in a wedding so it does not come across as too much like a costume party or themed event. Gold, black and white are perfect colors to use in a Great Gatsby inspired wedding â€“ using vintage dishes or crystal add a special touch to the table settings and creates such an elegant look. Tall candlesticks set amongst large vases overflowing with flowers looks regal and romantic.
A sophisticated menu is perfect when throwing an art deco wedding â€“ look for a classic dish or keep it simple to represent the time and influence of the 20s. Use an art deco style for the cake â€“ itâ€™s a perfect way to tie the entire day and venue together!
There are so many options when it comes to a wedding dress â€“ ornate detail with beading or lace is perfect for the 1920s. Diamond or pearl jewelry, eyeliner and a vibrant red lipstick is all you need to look elegant and sophisticated.
