GREAT GATSBY THEME WEDDING IDEAS
Whether you’re ringing in the New Year with your wedding or planning your celebration in the middle of July, a Great Gatsby theme is always a fun choice! Gatsby themed weddings continue to be a popular option for couples tying the knot and we love the creativity associated with them.
You may be thinking, "What makes a wedding a Gatsby theme?". Shimmering metallic accents, Art Deco elements, and champagne are just a few elements often incorporated when bringing together a “Gatsby vibe”. From wedding gowns to decor, we compiled a list of glitzy and glamorous ideas to help plan a wedding using inspiration from this famous novel by F. Scott Fitzgerald.
Gatsby Style Wedding Dresses
When finding a gown to fit this theme, remember, it’s all about the embellishments! Sequins and geometric lines are two details closely associated with Roaring 20s fashion, and these can be found on many modern-day wedding gown designs. Whether you choose a simple slip dress or a beaded showstopper, a Gatsby-themed wedding dress is sure to turn heads.
Our Style Gala is a mermaid style gown featuring all-over lace and Art Deco inspired beaded patterns. This extravagant detailing pairs perfectly with delicate spaghetti straps and a deep illusion V-back to create a stunning gown that fits the Gatsby theme perfectly. Intricate Art Deco beading is a well- known part of the 1920s style and combining this with metallic corded lace appliques makes for a truly jaw-dropping design.
Featuring beautiful geometric patterns, Style Atlas is another mermaid gown that pulls inspiration from the Roaring 20s. Brides will love the attention to detail in the geometric lace used throughout the dress, along with the sequin layer featured underneath the lace. This design includes a V-neck, an unlined bodice, and a gorgeous sweep length train.
Style Carmen not only represents a Great Gatsby wedding dress perfectly, it pairs wonderfully with almost any decor! This soft silhouette bridal dress will accentuate your curves in a subtle yet sexy way. From the ornate Art Deco lace appliques to the dazzling collection of crystals, pearls, rhinestones, and sequins, this design will have you looking picture perfect. The striking open back and semi-cathedral train will make for a look that your significant other will never forget.
If glitz and glam is what you’re looking for, Style Heart will not disappoint. This Gatsby style wedding dress features hand embroidered silver strands, Swarovski crystals, pearls, rhinestones, and sequins throughout the design. The embellishments on this gown will have you sparkling more than the chandeliers at your wedding venue.
Another idea for capturing the Gatsby vibe with your gown is to add a touch of gold. Gold and black are two colors often associated with this theme, so finding a gown with a gold lining is a subtle way to compliment your gold decor accents. Style Opal, pictured in color ivory/gold, is a vintage chic gown that will have all eyes on you. The sweetheart neckline, beaded spaghetti straps, and beaded net material combine to create a stunning, timeless look.
Great Gatsby inspired wedding decor is the perfect way to add a touch of glamour and elegance to your big day. For decorations, think about incorporating Art Deco elements such as geometric patterns and sleek lines. These can be included in your wedding cake design to create a bold focal point at your reception. Other areas to incorporate these elements include the wedding invitations and tablescapes.
To really capture the 1920s wedding vibe, use shimmering metallic and gold accents throughout your wedding day. Think hair accessories, flower bouquets, centerpieces, and backdrops. For a more subdued look, focus on cream and ivory tones with just a hint of sparkle.
Another fun idea is to create the perfect photo op for your guests with a Gatsby photo booth! Set up a station, provide some props, hire a photographer and you’ll have hours of entertainment for you and your wedding guests. Not to mention, if you requested your guests dress in Gatsby attire (think flapper dresses and headbands with feathers), these memories will definitely be ones to remember.
And finally, no Gatsby-themed wedding reception would be complete without plenty of champagne and canapés for your guests!
Deciding on a wedding with inspiration from The Great Gatsby is so much fun to plan because the options are endless and the small details you can use to capture the essence will amaze you. More than likely your wedding planner has designed an event with this theme prior to yours and your bridal gown consultant likely has as well.
