Gatsby Wedding Theme

This theme is based on a super glamorous era where wealth was demonstrated in the items you owned and the more extravagant the better! A Gatsby themed wedding offers you some fantastic material to really bring this style to life. Less can definitely be more for a Gatsby Theme Wedding, as fewer striking items displayed well will have just as big an impact as having lots of decor in your venue.

Think large feathers, or alternatively oversized flower arrangements in long stem vases for your table centrepieces, mixed with strings of pearls for a luxurious feel. Sparkle is another must have for a Gatsby theme wedding, so think of adding touches of this, by choosing a sparkly table runner or ties for your chairs, trinket boxes that glisten or actual pieces of costume jewellery themselves draped over other items. Alternatively you could choose to go even further with the glitz and glam and incorporate fabrics with sparkles, which when draped around your venue will add a luxurious element.

Colour pallets of metallic colours such as gold or silver work really well if you go with the traditional black typeface for your wedding stationery which most think of when looking at fonts of the time. Think of items such as votives filled with tea lights grouped together to create a soft glow, or an eye catching period item such as a gramophone, decanters or glass perfume bottles.

A great way to think of bringing a Gatsby wedding theme together, is to imagine that you are throwing a big roaring 20’s party in your fabulous home (which just happens to be a stunning mansion or country estate!) full of fellow magnificent guests, who you are out to impress with your amazing taste. Channel your inner Gatsby girl or guy and make the most of this gloriously over the top theme.
