We’re no strangers to the love of Art Deco here at Polka Dot Bride and have been eagerly counting down the days as The Great Gatsby movie premiere gets closer – the costuming, sets and details galore sure to send our minds ticking over.
Injecting a little Gatsby into your wedding day look is a little bit of fun, a nod to nostalgia and the glamour that comes with it. There are so many modern interpretations, that whether you’re inspired by the colours, the shapes or just the feeling you can add a modern take on yesteryear to your wedding day accessories.
First up – jewels! The most sparkly way to add a touch of Gatsby to your wedding day look. Pick long, drapey necklaces, long, shoulder dusting earrings bright with geometric shapes and chunky pearls everywhere!
