We’re having some 20’s and 30’s touches, so I have a few of these book marked:

The whole 30’s and Gatsby thing seems popular for weddings now so there are some really great ideas out there.

We didn’t really do a “gatsby” theme, but our ballroom was restored from the 1920s, so it was of the era. This is what we did:

 

 

 

 

You don’t necessarily need black and gold to have an art deco wedding, but do splurge on luxe details like a great-fitting tux, a beautiful dress, and maybe a lovely headpiece. I would keep your original soft color palatte, it sounds beautiful!

beautiful pictures…but maybe you should call it a 1920s Theme and not “Gatsby”. Gatsby isn’t really a romantic, happy story, esp the book.
