Since we are having a Las Vegas wedding, a theme felt appropriate! We thought about the traditional Elvis themed wedding, I fought for a Harry potter themed wedding like this one, but in the end we happily agreed on the theme Great Gatsby – Roaring 20’s. This is a pretty trendy wedding theme at the moment and you can see why. The style is timeless, the book is making a resurgence with the release of the movie, and the fashion is to die for.
I have picked out my favorite Great Gatsby inspirations to share with you. Note: this is a two-part post because I just have too much inspiration to share! See Part 2 here.
