Hello, my partner has fallen in the love with the idea of a Gatsby/20s...

Hello, my partner has fallen in the love with the idea of a Gatsby/20s style wedding. Not everything about the wedding but certain things. I've looked online and all the pics I can find are like photo shoot pics, has anyone had a gatsby/20s wedding that would be willing to share a couple of pics please? Just so I can get an idea of what it looks like in the real world. TIA x

I haven't had one myself but I think the key is to key your colour scheme simple and not overthink it. For example, navy or black with white and gold is perfect for art deco and is classic and timeless. Think tall gold vases with white flowers, black table cloths, gold Candle holders.

Hiya! This is what we did - we kept it very subtle and also incoporated more 1920s/30s/40s movie theme as well but here are some pictures of things we did - feathers were a big feature. We asked everyone to dress in Gold, Black and Cream to match the theme (optional of course)- and most people were happy to do so and the effect was gorgeous

I did but it was 1920s style invites, table numbers, favours, car, venue. I’ve seen lots on online that are very full on but I just took parts and incorporated into my day I’ll add them to this shortly

Try searching 'art deco' rather than Great Gatsby when looking for inspo

I love the Art Deco theme! (Sorry not had it myself but from Pinterest etc it's such a good idea!) I think vistaprint do some Art Deco style invitations

I had a Gatsby themed hen do. I bought my dress from www.gatsbylady.com there’s some great dresses, possibly for bridesmaids?

All my stationary had this Art Deco look, we took colours and inspiration from the 20’s but fairly loosely and had Art Deco vases everywhere holding vintage pink roses with loads of candles

We didn’t go all out- my dress wasn’t gatsby themed but many elements were- we fell in love with the Vermont hotel in Newcastle as a venue and the decor is very much Art Deco so we worked with this - the groom and his groomsmen wore tuxedos and my bridesmaids had very gatsbyesque dresses. We designed our invites etc which followed the theme as well as our centre pieces etc pics to follow!
