A Roaring 20's Gatsby Wedding

The great Gatsby inspiration 

Watching the 2013 Great Gatsby movie inspired me to create my own Gatsby style by using a luxurious shimmering gold silk texture draped through two wedding rings on a dramatic black background with a Deco style stripe to give the design a chic and glamorous look.

It should exude a sense of purposeful luxury in no uncertain terms.

Vintage 1920's Art Deco Gatsby Wedding Collection
Gatsby style is all about dramatic and eye-catching details. The luxurious Art Deco style is making a comeback in a big way! Some couples like to choose a trendy style that their guests will relate to.  Art deco has influenced a lot of couples even today to use for their most important celebration.

A wedding should be one of the most special occasions in your life. One way to make it even more special is to add personal touches throughout the entire process with gifts for your wedding guests that can all be personalized at Zazzle.

The Wedding Outfits

The Groom
Unlike today, men wore tailored suits to fit snug on the body. Black tuxedos and sparkly sequined dresses are a modern way to do 1920s wedding attire. When choosing a 1920s suit, find one that fits well, not baggy. A matching suit vest and pants are a must for a Great Gatsby look. 

A French cuff white shirt with cuff links is a must! ...I love the look of the white collar shirt for ’20s wear. It screams vintage. Don't forget the very important vintage style shoes. Color-wise anything goes. There's no such thing as too much sparkle.

The Bride
Bridal frocks of the Jazz Age were the epitome of footloose and fancy-free. They were shorter, reflecting the popularity of the flapper girl look. Brides also wore long-strand necklaces, oftentimes pearls layered around their neck.
Here is some great 1920’s inspiration from zazzle designers.

The Table Decor

The Great Gatsby Gift BoxA shimmery black tablecloth layered with embroidered gold linen, including  The couple's initials on plates, wine glass charms and wine bottle labels. The opportunities are endless. 

Welcome Bags
Personalize with the wedding couple's names and wedding date, and be sure to include a special message!

Decadent cookie favors make the perfect post-wedding treat. Box them up to make it a matching gift set so they're easy for guests to grab and go!

How deep is your love? Marine Wedding Ideas

Love marine life and looking to take the plunge with the love of your life and get married encircled by tropical fish and coral?

There are a variety of destinations and options available, even if you can't swim you can always take a dive and marry underwater.

If you don't wish to get wet or travel overseas but still want that underwater theme a great option is to get married at a local aquarium. An aquarium wedding will ensure an unforgettable watery experience for you and your guests and better still you don't have to get wet and ruin your wonderful wedding dress.

Another aquatic option is hiring a private submarine with some submarines offering space for up to 20 guests this is a great choice for those who would like a more intimate deep sea wedding experience. Popular locations to enjoy a submarine wedding include Mauritius, Fiji and Barbados.

If you want the real deal and to dive, the world has so many wonderful natural underwater backdrops. Popular locations to dive into the sea to get married include Bali, Hawaii, Thailand, Cayman Island, Mexico and the amazing Great Barrier Reef in Australia.

Just like a normal wedding you can reduce your stress and take the burden of the wedding logistics away by using a specialist underwater wedding planner. Your choice of marine venue will be able to assist you to find your perfect wedding planner.

If you don't have the money and fancy planning your own wedding instead, no doubt you will be wondering how do I have a diving wedding experience and keep my guests dry? 

Don't worry all your guests don't have to join you in the water, unless you want them too, instead your guests can watch from aboard the dive boat or from your reception location near by.

In some countries a second ceremony may be necessary as not all ocean water weddings are legally accepted this is commonly done on the beach or at a beachside hotel.

So what are you waiting for? Tell your guests you are diving in to married life with a splash with one of these uniquely designed aquatic styled wedding invitations.
