Gatsby glamour

Fashion has travelled back to the Jazz Age since the release of Baz Lurhmann’s film of The Great Gatsby starring Leonardo DiCaprio as sartorialist Jay Gatsby and Carey Mulligan as elegant socialite Daisy Buchanan.

The bridal industry in particular has taken inspiration from the lavish film based on the iconic American novel depicting the era when the rich got richer and style ruled.

In this post we take a look at some 1920s inspired dresses – perfect for that vintage Gatsby inspired wedding!

Which one is your favourite dress?

Vintage Weddings

Indulge your vintage side and bring together all those little gems collected over the years: the beaded Italian bag, the fabulous 1950s wedding gown, the Edwardian pearl necklace and the long, elegant gloves.

Antique, second-hand and re-used items are great for the environment. They are effectively carbon neutral as they have already been used, and you may well be saving them from being thrown away.

Charity shops are a fantastic source of unexpected finds – buying from them will benefit both the good cause and your wallet. Relatives may also have heirloom jewellery, ceramics or linen to pass down to you. Don’t be afraid to use items that do not match – it can create a delightfully eclectic look.

Take inspiration from these classic 20th-century weddings:
