A Great Gatsby Wedding

Every year has it’s wedding trends, often inspired by popular TV shows, movies or music. This year is no different, and with The Great Gatsby making it’s screen debut, again, it’s 1920’s fashion will be making a huge splash in wedding trends. At Val Vista Lakes, wedding trends come and go and our Gilbert wedding venue continues to provide the perfect backdrop, and with this new wedding trend, we will be the perfect venue for that vintage theme.

Vintage is Back

Not all that long ago it was Mad Men Themed Weddings that took the cake, providing beautiful inspiration for that vintage wedding. While this wedding theme is still something that many here in Gilbert absolutely love, it has fallen a bit by the wayside over the past few months. However, if you’re still looking for that vintage look and feel, with classic wedding dresses and tuxedo’s, look no farther than “Gatsby,” premiering May 10.

If you attended Gilbert High through the 90’s, yes I’m dating myself, you no doubt had to read The Great Gatsby and spend many days contemplating the life and death of Jay Gatsby, the mysterious millionaire who lives next door to the narrator. The story takes place in the roaring 1920’s, when extravagant parties and unbridled love ran the day. So, as you can imagine, there is quite a lot to be inspired by.

In the 1920’s, women won the right to vote, and themselves became a force to be reckoned with. They were elegant and strong, beautiful and tough.

From elegance and lace to glitter and gold, a Gatsby wedding has endless possibilities. Simply take one of the most memorable quotes from the movie as inspiration: “I loved her and that’s the beginning, and the end of everything.”
