The Great Gatsby

So The Great Gatsby film has arrived!! You will have seen this theme and style explode over the wedding industry over the past few weeks, but in truth it has been creeping in for some time now.


I was asked back in 2011 by Pure Weddings magazine to produce a 1920s Art Deco inspired invitation for a feature. I jumped at the chance, as I adore this era with its strong lines and shapes and sheer elegance. The original is a very solid interpretation of the style with black and gold as the colour palette and lots of heavy lines and shapes.


With the release of the film I thought it would be fun to update the design and produce it in a variation of colours to show some different styling options. When you think of The Great Gatsby and that era you do tend to associate dark and opulent colours with the style so I thought I would show you some softer colours that would work perfectly for a Gatsby inspired Spring or Summer wedding.
