    Definitely navy blue but I would subsitute gold and champagne for the yellow as it will be more gatsby-like, elegant, and classier. Yellow is my favourite colour but I think it will look a bit too bright and sunny for what you are going for.

    Depends what kind of green and purple you are thinking of. I automatically think Mardi gras lol. Post some inspiration images!

    Navy and gold definitely. I also automatically think of Mardi Gras when I think of purple and green.

    I vote green and purple, but that’s similar to what we’re doing so I’m biased. We are doing lavender, dark green, and navy. I didn’t want only two colors.

    Wow! based on the oics I like the soft sage and purple the best but I really don’t like the color or material of the dresses in the last pic. So I vote soft green in chiffon and purple! Yay!

    jennlatte:  I do love the second picture you posted best. With green and purple I automatically thought “Wimbledon” but those pastel shades are gorgeous!

    I agree with @courtneysokal in that you should change yellow for gold-ish or mustard, as it would fit so much better with the Gatsby theme.

    Purple and green automatically makes me think of the Mardi Grass and/or The Princess and the Frog (both good choices, but very far from Gatsby).

    If you’re afraid that Navy Blue would be too dark, maybe you can add some white details (feathers, napkins, flowers, etc.) to make things brighter.

    Or maybe try something wild like: Ivory+Gold+Teal blue (Image just for reference)

     I say navy and gold or the teal and gold look great!

    if you’re thinking of doing a garden party, I might look at the colors in the area where you’re doing the reception as a cue (i.e. is it very green? are there many colorful flowers, or are most flowers one color? is there a lot of water nearby?) and then pick your colors from there.

    if you do that, the color scheme will flow smoothly into the venue, which means less decorating, which means more money saved. yay!

    for me personally, green and purple make me think of the Joker, and navy and yellow make me think of primary school. I agree that navy/gold/champagne might be a better spin on that theme, and would read as both more adult/mature and more Gatsby.

    alternate color theory: Google image covers of the book over the years and pick from there?
