There are many ways to interpret The Great Gatsby for your wedding, from vintage roaring 20s to Art Deco glam. The book and original movie had a great impact on me in high school, so I’m looking forward to seeing the new novel adaptation. How about you?
Today, I wanted to provide some soft romantic Gatsby inspiration that honors the classic. Starting with a soft palette, adding glamorous pearls, jewels and gold, and introducing architectural art deco shapes rounds out this romantic Gatsby inspired wedding design.
I’m interested to hear what you think of the style in the new movie, so come back to share your thoughts on the story, fashion, style, modern music, etc. Do you find it too flashy or are you loving the over-stylized approach? What aspects of Gatsby style would you pull for your wedding design?
The wedding design below will come to fruition this weekend. When bride, Cassie, told me their wedding venue reminded her of Alice in Wonderland meets Narnia, my eyes grew wide. And wider still, when she and her fiance, Pete, were completely on board and excited to have a woodsy and vintage Alice in Wonderland inspired theme. Follow on Facebook and instagram (@kaellalynn) this weekend for behind the scene images of this design come to life!
A little boho love on the blog today. Boho can be achieved in quite a few ways, so today I’m inspired by Moroccan details and feathers accents. I recommend drawing inspiration for your color palette and flowers from traditional rugs, like you see at the bottom of the board. You might even try using rugs as runners, either for your ceremony or tables…
Rose gold is so pretty and classic, yet there is something unexpected about it. Paired with Navy you find the perfect balance of feminine and sophisticated. A winning palette for the girly-girl at heart.
