A Gatsby themed wedding starts where excess meets opulence, and with a help from your neighborhood florist, a tailor with impeccable taste, a classic venue, and a bakery that knows no bounds, you should be in great hands.
For Luhrmann’s interpretation of Gatsby the art director felt the need to use mixed orchids because of the extreme expense that would be needed to keep the flowers fresh in the 1920′s. Luckily, orchids are not nearly as expensive to maintain as they once were, but they are still generally more expensive than that of mainstay flowers in a summer themed wedding such as roses. Due to their exclusion of “workable” stems your florist will have to create stems for any bouquets needed. The price of orchids may also fluctuate based on color and season, so a mix of other orchid-like flowers with highlights of actual orchids is the preferred method of add this unique flower to your wedding. A Peruvian Lilly is extremely comparable to orchids at a lower price point.

The Roaring 20′s are not just known for the gregarious style of it’s era’s elite, it’s also known for the architecturally arrogant beauty of Art Deco. Though you may be headed for a destination wedding if you don’t live in a metropolitan area, New York, Chicago, Detroit and a bit of LA all have buildings teeming with unimaginable beauty of the Art Deco movement. Think bold colors and industry inspired geometrics with adornments of a lavish life of luxury.
