1920's The Great Gatsby Inspired Wedding

With The Great Gatsby's recent release, it's time to showcase the beauty of the Roaring 1920's! Although I wasn't alive then, it is by far my favorite decade. The Flappers style was so beautiful and everything about the 1920's seemed so elegant.

After seeing the movie, I know some of you will want 1920's themed weddings, and I don't blame you! The Art Deco theme is so interesting, and they loved their beading!

Here are some actual wedding photos from the 1920's. I love how we can take this concept and make it more modern, as seen below with wedding dresses found today!

The art deco style was the main theme of the 1920's, and these invitations found on Etsy do not disappoint!

How about some cake...yes please!

As you know, headpieces are essential for 1920's Flappers!

These earrings are so beautiful! I am loving the style of these.

And who could forget those engagement rings or wedding bands!
