If there is one decade which sums up the glamorous, elegant and yet beautifully quirky – it has to be the 1920’s. No other era has quite the style and pizazz that the ‘Great Gatsby’ decade does – so it’s no wonder we’re getting loads of requests from brides wanting Great Gatsby wedding inspiration.
So, what are the key points for a theme like this? Well, you need to think bling, but restrained bling. Think party vibes, elegance but extravagance. Go for art deco fonts and details that are simple but stylish.
Let’s start with the shoes… go for velvet or satin, with adorable peep toes and a little bit of well chosen bling. The ones below are the perfect pair, with a subtle hint to the era and the Great Gatsby wedding inspiration.
For your hair, think about sweeping styles off to the side, with structured curls. Pins and clips are popular in this style too – so head down to Monsoon and see what treasures you can find.
Accessorises don’t stop at earrings and bracelets, takes a look at elaborate body drapes too (like the image below). Look for styles with pearls and pearl drop beading.
Your Great Gatsby wedding inspiration wouldn’t be complete without your gorgeous bridesmaids so make sure you can find a 1920s style that suits them, that they’re comfortable in. Looks for any gowns with sequin accents to nail the look perfectly and opt for neutral tones to keep the look classy rather than overbearing. The next couple of photos are perfect examples…
For your own gown, remember some of the key trends…

– Cap sleeves
