Not only are Fitzgerald fans highly anticipating The Great Gatsby once again hitting the big screen on May 10, but the blockbuster’s Art Deco style is playing a starring role when it comes to wedding inspiration.
For the past several years, rustic has been the favored theme, but thanks to the movie’s stunning décor and fashion, glamour and elegance straight out of the Roaring ‘20s are now at the forefront of wedding trends.
This was seen prominently during the recent Bridal Market in New York City. Designers such as Jenny Packham, Reem Acra, and Maggie Sottero seemed to be inspired by the literary classic, showcasing Deco-driven designs in their Spring/Summer ’14 collections.
Thanking of tapping into the decade for your bridal look? Embellish your gown with a flapper-esque accessories, such as a birdcage veil and feathery headpieces.
Instead of a traditional bouquet, play off the vintage vibe with a brooch bouquet, perfect for that touch of sparkle that the style is known for.
For decor, it’s all about glitz and glam — chandeliers, sparkling tabletops, Chiavari chairs, over-sized feathers, and lush drapery.
Bold geometrics are prominent in Art Deco-inspired sweets, which look chic in both vibrant colors or traditional white.
