If you want your wedding to be filled with sparkle, shimmer and shine, as well as the uniqueness and special flair of the 1920s, an art deco theme may be just what you’re looking for. “The Great Gatsby” evokes this motif and brides everywhere have fallen in love with it. To incorporate this theme into your special day, here are a few elements you won’t want to forget:
Give your future wedding guests a clue as to what type of event they will be attending once the big day rolls around. Wedding invitations help set the tone, so you’ll want to pick out stationery that is right on point. This Deco Marquee Invitation is perfect for the event. Not only does the text resemble the font used in “The Great Gatsby” book and movie, but the architectural design at the bottom offers plenty of texture and structure as well. You’ll also find gold ribbon wrapped around the lower half of the invite for a touch of shimmer.
These Art Deco – Blank Coasters double as a fun activity for your wedding guests. Not only will they hold their drinks, these coasters also have blank spots for your loved ones to write their well wishes and best advice to the bride and groom. Collect the coasters once your nuptials have come to a close and read them all with your new spouse. You may even want to frame a few of the best ones and hang them throughout your new house.
Having a summer wedding? Give your guests the gift of a cool breeze with this Art Deco – Favor Fan. It coordinates flawlessly with the coasters and includes your monogram along with the date of your wedding. Leave the fans on the seats of the chairs at your ceremony or reception for your loved ones to pick up.
If you want your reception tables to sparkle and shine, use metallic gold or silver tablecloths or runners. They won’t overwhelm the tablescape, but instead highlight the dinnerware, glassware, blooms and beautiful centerpieces. Coordinate the gold or silver tablecloth with other metallic accessories like vases and candles.
Use feathers to decorate your centerpiece, put one in your bridal locks, place them atop your cake or string a few of them together for a pretty strand of garland. But first, dip them in gold glitter to give them a glamorous appearance.
