Oh how we love the Great Gatsby here at Victoria Millésime. This was one of the defining books of my youth (along with Ayn Rand’s Atlas Shrugged, but that doesn’t make for a very good wedding inspiration board!). But a Great Gatsby Bride…
“And so with the sunshine and the great bursts of leaves growing on the trees, just as things grow in fast movies, I had that familiar conviction that life was beginning over again with the summer.”
Although the characters in the book are not particularly pleasant or likeable (that’s kind of the point), they do live incredible beautiful lives, surrounded by glamour, sparkle and jazz.
This Great Gatsby Bride look translates perfectly into a wedding theme, and has been extremely popular over the last few years, particularly since the release of Leonardo DiCaprio’s film version of the Great Gatsby. This appeal of the Art Deco wedding dress, heavily beaded and slim and fitted, doesn’t seem to be waning though. There are several wedding dress designers catering to this gorgeous style, including the Duchess of Cambridge’s favourite designer Jenny Packham as well as London’s Eliza Jane Howell.
Our Celebration Collection Bridal Headpieces are the perfect complement to these Art Deco wedding dresses for the Great Gatsby bride – heavily beaded and dripping with Swarovski crystals.
Here are our top picks for the Great Gatsby Bride.

That Original Vintage Art Deco Necklace, from our collection of Original Vintage Jewellery, is absolutely exquisite. The Art Deco geometric shapes are so perfectly Great Gatsby, we just adore it.
