We here are all a flutter over the upcoming movie “The Great Gatsby“. We loved the previous 1974 movie with Robert Redford and Mia Farrow, and are looking forward to this new exciting incarnation. If you loved the deliciousness of Moulin Rouge as I did, then we can look forward together to the same dazzling creativity and authenticity by Catherine Martin.Director Baz Luhrmanns’ can boast that she is his designer as well as his wife, and is gifted in her talent for fabulous set design and creation of memorable scenes. The Great Gatsby style is also reflected in the costumes that received the attention of Catherine Martin and Miuccia Prada as well. The Great Gatsby will surely be inspiring brides as soon as the movies spins off it’s reels on May 10, 2013.
This heady excitement has inspired us to revise the “Art Deco Silhouettes Wedding Suite” in a color scheme reminiscent of the films dazzling graphics.

Think about hiring a photographer and doing a vintage photo shoot. Have the gals all pose in their beaded flapper dresses and have a collection of feather boas, headbands, cigarette extenders, fans, martini glasses, hand mirrors and the like to use as props. For the guys have fat cigars, fake tommy guns, fedoras, and cocktail shakers. Rent a piano (if you don’t own one) pose the groom-to-be playing and the bride-to-be perched on top as if serenading him. Another classic 1920s photo image is the cut out crescent moon stage backdrop on a black starry sky, young lovers nestled inside the curve of the moon.
A speakeasy party will be one that will always be remembered. Be sure to add a password to the 1920 theme wedding shower invitations to kick off the event. Have a large friend in a vintage tux serve as “Bouncer” or a girlfriend dressed in a mans tuxedo (ah la Marlene Dietrich in “Give Me The Man“) as a greeter at the door. Serve a signature cocktail in teacups, so the coppers won’t getcha. Music? Is there any other choice for the 1920s? It was the JAZZ AGE! Here is a go to list of 1920s Jazz standards, but I encourage you to listen and chose the exact Jazz tunes that will set the proper mood for your event. Again I say Cole Porter. Look at the movie “De-lovely” for some added era appropriate musical inspiration.
Create excitement with this engagement party, an art deco wedding shower! Be sure to have the cocktails shaking and your guests dressed up in their best Great Gatsby attire. I can just hear the soundtrack for this fab party – Cole Porter singing “Let’s Misbehave” will get the ball rolling. Ain’t We Got Fun?!
As for decor think ART DECO, of course. The presence of a graphic pattern – a strong cubist design (not floral, that would be Art Nouveau), use the pattern repeated on the place cards, and chose a color scheme that screams 1920. Try black and gold, deep brick-red and mustard yellow, emerald-green and peach….or my favorite dusty pink and black. Lighting should be soft and warm, drape vintage scarfs over crook-neck lamps, or use swag lamps with crystal mini chandeliers over each small round table. Table cloths of black underskirts with an over lay of the contrasting color of your palette. Lots of fine crystal glasses, and perhaps vintage china from thrift shops in mismatched designs but all from the 1920s and 1930s.
As far as food and drink – begin the evening with aperitifs complimented by olives, nuts or canapes – followed by a catered dinner – one done with a vintage flair and fine silver. Then finger food sized desserts – served in a separate room – complimenting the after dinner cocktails. Of course chocolate covered strawberries compliment champagne perfectly.
If the event is to planned around a couples shower or engagement party then hold a nice dinner followed by libations and party games – we like Charades played with a Golden Age Of Hollywood / 1920s theme. Have your guests acting out clues to The Great Gatsby, Chicago, Citizen Kane and Downton Abbey among other memorable movies and TV shows based in the 1920s.
Remember, it’s all about creating memories. Be sure to collect photos and souvenirs along the way to add to your scrapbook of wedding day nostalgia.
1920s Wedding Style. It was the Jazz Age… The Roaring Twenties! Art Deco design was influencing fashion and decor. The spirit of the era was symbolized by flappers, bobbing their hair, doing the Charleston, and slipping away for a party at the speakeasy.
Women wore their lips in a bee-stung pout imitating “It Girl” Clara Bow. Faces were powdered pale and eyes were dramatic in their dark kohl eyeliner treatment. Eyebrows were plucked into a thin, downward sloping arch.
Brides of the 1920s Vintage Wedding Style wore daringly short gowns, sometimes revealing the knee! The style of the time called for drop waists and flattened bosoms. The veil was a statement of drama usually much longer than the dress and trailing the floor with a headpiece cloche, crown-like tiara, or a lacy bandeaux . Bridal bouquets were quite large (perhaps to cover those daring glimpses of leg) with ribbon streamers of lovers knots trailing nearly to the floor. Popular flowers included orange blossoms and chrysanthemums. The jewelry of the period is quite exquisite and reflects the art deco influence.
Leading men such as the dashing Rudolph Valentino epitomized romance and would be seen to wear the butterfly collar with their cutaway coat tuxedo, along with a new trend, the wristwatch.
Not to be forgotten, we are talking about the Prohibition Era. Consider serving drinks from the bar in teacups, speakeasy style. Tell your bartender to wear his best spats and serve up some of the cocktail creations of the era like the Bee’s Knees, The Tuxedo #2 or the Mary Pickford.
The Jazz Age will offer an abundance of musical offerings to your event. Set the mood by playing music by Louis Armstrong, Cab Calloway, and Paul Whiteman Orchestra. Hire a Dixieland Jazz Band to accompany your event as you and your guests flood the dance floor to partake in the Charleston!
