@Apple_Blossom:  Yes, it is ironic, since Gatsby was about how the obsession with money and extravagence destroys the common man.

I love Art Deco. And I’m not sure why cause I’m not a modern type of gal, being a Victorian and Edwardian fan more. Although I suppose Art Deco isn’t modern and I’m just old. Hmm.

When I think of Art Deco I think of lines, flappers, egyptian stuff and glamour. It was the time of spending. We just got outta the drab do without time of WWI. So many people died, its time to throw caution to the wind and SPEND! And buy stocks…Undecided

If you need help about what is Art Deco n what isn’t I’m sure some of us would be happy to help out. I know I would 🙂

@atlbride2013:  I disagree although it is Art Deco it is at an entirely over the top and dramatized manner by which has revolutionized itself. just like beauty and the beast or any other popular movie they all have their time period but it doesn’t detract from the origination of the idea, which in this case is Gatsby

It is the epitomy of vintage glamour – think opulence (pearls, fur, feathers, gems, gold/silver)

For venue I would suggest something like this: The Berkeley in Asbury Park NJ also renting an estate would be ideal and over the top

Dress with a fur wrap:

AND a beautiful headpiece

Centerpieces draped in pearls/gems and sequin tablecloths or sequins just on chair as pictured – centerpiece can be feathers, flowers of choice, etc.

I love the aesthetic of the 1920s. But doing a “Gatsby-themed” wedding is beyond ironic, as another poster commented. First of all, have you read the book? It’s the most tragic love story ever. Like I said, I can appreciate using some of the “glam” ideas presented in Gatsby, but to truly base your wedding off of it seems like a bad omen.

@mamawolf:  +1 that movie was tragic in most aspects but whimsically romantic in another. Pure vs tainted love. Not exactly what I’d like my forever after to be associated with but the outlandish style is mesmerizing. 

OP I made a collage for u (as I’m 34 wks pregnant and really haven’t much to do except help my fellow bees)
