Get your Gatsby on!
As the hit movie, The Great Gatsby has danced its way on to our screens this year, it seems appropriate for everyone to get their Gatsby on, including brides! For a glamorous hen night why not take a Charleston masterclass at Claridges with your friends, this would include being taught the fabulous moves from the twenties by the professional dancers, ‘The Bee’s Knees’ and when your feet are worn out from doing the bunny hop you can enjoy elegant cocktails like the `Flapper` at the end of the session. Also, to get the full experience of this glamorous era you and your friends will be able to adorn yourselves with accessories such as sequined headbands, strings of pearls and satin elbow-length gloves to feel like a true Gatsby girl!
If you would like a Gatsby inspired wedding dress, then play it like Daisy by choosing a curve hugging silhouette and embracing the strings of pearls and elegant embellishment which is a great alternative twist from the classic wedding dresses. Headpieces were a statement fashion accessory in the twenties, so if you would like to stand out on your big day then look out for pretty combs, clips and even tiaras too!
The music from The Great Gatsby will be sure to get your wedding guests up on their feet so why not hire a live jazz band to play at your reception. Hire an experienced band that can adjust their extensive repertoire, appearance and line-up to suit your event’s theme to create a glamour’s atmosphere for your guests.
Use these Gatsby-inspired wedding ideas to travel back in time and help you channel the Gatsby spirit and make your day feel laidback but with your own unique twist.
