{Movie Inspired Weddings} The Great Gatsby

"I love her and that's the beginning and the end of everything
-F. Scott Fitzgerald

A few words might come to mind when you think of the classic novel turned movie, The Great Gatsby. Glamour, romance, sophistication - the 1920's provides plenty of elements you can incorporate into your wedding to generate a very similar feeling. If you are a vintage-glam loving bride, this look is absolutely perfect for you!

Here we go! There are a few key elements to pulling off this look - let me talk you through a few of them, as well as provide you with some samples. 

For starters, nothing says GATSBY like some diamonds and pearls (Really, all things that sparkle will do): 

Next, LACE, and feathers are a must:

Lastly, a marriage of silver AND gold details:

So there you have it! Some of the key elements of the Great Gatsby look - for further searching I found it helpful to use phrases such as "art deco wedding", "1920s inspired wedding" and "vintage glam wedding" - sometimes even "classic Hollywood wedding". 

When searching for items - crystals, ostrich feathers, gold, silver, pearls, diamonds, deco, metallic, and vintage were great key terms to include. Extra emphasis on the ostrich feathers and diamonds. 

The Great Gatsby look: Glamour. Romance. Sophistication.
