September 30 2016

" We adore a roaring 1920s wedding theme here at Silver Sixpence in her Shoe, and we love the thought of channelling a Great Gatsby style into your big day. So let’s take a look at how to recreate the glamorous era through your bridal outfit, wedding décor and much more… "

The 1920s were a time of ultra glam outfits with an abundance of stunning accessories, so you want to incorporate this into your aisle style. Beautiful embellished gowns with dropped waists and fringing are definitely the way forward. Opt for Art Deco inspired bridal shoes – there are so many gorgeous vintage designs to choose from.

And for your accessories? We have tons of bridal headwear that’ll help complete your Great Gatsby gown. Our Sienna Beaded Forehead Headband is the perfect match for this wedding theme, with its beautiful rose gold centre and vintage lace flowers it’s made for a vintage wedding. Alternatively, our Fern Double Leaf Hair Vine will look equally wonderful for a 1920s wedding – the two lace flowers are joined by a strand of seed pearls and it’s truly beautiful. Pearls were seen in abundance during the 1920s, so finish your look with lots of pearl jewellery including earrings and necklaces – perfection!

Your bridesmaids will look divine in a variety of metallic embellished gowns. Mix and match each gown for a fun take on traditional dresses, this way you can make sure your ladies feel extra comfortable. The Great Gatsby era was all about luxurious fashion, so you want to reflect this through the bridesmaid dresses.

For your colour scheme, gold is an absolute must-have! You can accompany this glamorous metallic shade with black for a Great Gatsby wedding theme but navy and purple works just as beautifully. Black and gold Art Deco stationery is a fab way to start the wedding planning, and your guests will instantly know that there is a party to be had. Include a lot of fabulous Great Gatsby signs throughout your wedding day too – maybe include your favourite romantic quotes from the book and place them around your wedding venue.

You can have some real fun with your wedding food and drinks too. 1920s inspired cocktails are an absolute must-have – champagne towers, vintage decanters and martinis will really help to set the scene. Speak to your wedding cake designer about your theme and they’ll be able to create a wonderful Art Deco design that will look too good to eat. Anything with black and gold icing will fit in flawlessly with your stylish special day.
