Opulence. Sophistication. Bliss. These are a few of the terms one might use to describe the ‘Roaring 20s’ era depicted in F. Scott Fitzgerald’s novel, The Great Gatsby.  With the movie version of the novel released earlier in the year, this luxurious lifestyle has been on the mind of many including brides creating a movement towards Gatsby’s exuberant party style when planning weddings.

The vintage look includes neutral accents in ivory and taupe along with pops of blush or mint typically offset with traditional black.  Ornate Art Deco patterns in metallic gold and silver also help to create a striking and unforgettable ambiance.

The ‘20’s-inspired bride is timeless, jazzy and modern.  To match the roaring look, statement hairpieces have become popular from an understated crystal headpiece to a myriad of feathers.  You may want to think twice about donating that flapper dress this year as this dateless theme will continue to infuse itself into weddings and events in the years ahead.
