Glamorous Styled Wedding
From Alicia Pyne Photography: The entire wedding day was inspired by the Great Gatsby and 1920s era with the end goal to feel like everyone was attending a lavish party at the Gatsby mansion instead of a traditional wedding. Everything from the invitations, venue, music, décor, and dress was inspired by the glamour of that time period
Dress The Part
Guests were asked to wear their best art deco attire which would mimic the elegance and fun portrayed in the book and movie. A glass conservatory was set up for the ceremony and then flipped after for dinner while guests partied outside. Vintage art deco pieces, many being family heirlooms, and F. Scott Fitzgerald quotes were paired with a modern twist to transform the entire night.
DIY Messages for Memories Board
Instead of a sign-in guestbook, a message board was created so that every guest could write a personalized note.
A piece of plywood was spray painted black and then 150 gold envelopes were pasted in rows. A sign was made and framed by the bride with an art deco matte. Personalized advice cards were pre-printed for each guest to fill out with special gold pencils that had “Use To Write Words of Wisdom” engraved on them. After guests filled out, they sealed them in an envelope.
Gatsby Wedding Soundtrack
Keeping with the theme, the soundtrack from the new Gatsby movies was used throughout the evening. The bride walked down the aisle to “Young and Beautiful” by Lana del Rey. The couple and wedding party exited the ceremony by the song “Where The Wind Blows” by Coco O. For cocktail hour and dinner, 1920s and swing music was played in the background the entire evening.
