Theme weddings are fun because it gives everyone a reason to dress up and act the part. One of the more popular themes that has been dominating the fall wedding scene is the The Great Gatsby.
The Roaring 20s has been characterized as the quintessential era of opulence and robust growth in America. It is pure vintage chic, glamorous and sexy. It has been getting much attention of late with the transformation of the book into a movie. And if you adore the movie, you'll surely enjoy your Great Gatsby themed wedding.

"He knew that when he kissed this girl, and forever wed his unutterable visions to her perishable breath, his mind would never romp again like the mind of God. So he waited, listening for a moment longer to the tuning-fork that had been struck upon a star. Then he kissed her. At his lips' touch she blossomed for him like a flower and the incarnation was complete." -The Great Gatsby
Tip: Opt for a wedding theme that reflects your style and fits right into your budget.
