Gatsby is all about glitz, glam and grandeur and an easy theme to use for your Lake Tahoe wedding, especially when you choose a venue that can easily be transformed into West Egg on Long Island in 1922.
Gatsby Weddings in Lake Tahoe
Megan and Kevin are planning a Gatsby Wedding at our historic estate venue in May of 2015 and it’s going to be simply beautiful. Megan’s cream colored dress with pearls will be matched with Kevin’s three-piece suit and hat. They have chosen a great venue too since it was built before the roaring-20s for the rich society of San Francisco.
Even if you’re not getting married at a Historic Estate we still have many venues that could pull off a Gatsby themed wedding in Lake Tahoe. If you don’t have the old building surrounding you there are many decorations that can make an outdoor tent or the beach seem perfectly Gatsby!
We turned to pinterest to get some ideas for Gatsby weddings and there are some fabulous ones! You can add white feathers, beads and pearls to almost anything and get a Gatsby look. Black and White are usually to “go to” colors and anything sparkly and over the top decadent (and of course, champagne!).
This theme is fun and can be played up as little, or as much, as you want. You can even state on your very Gatsby like invitations what the theme is and that attire from the Roaring 20’s is appropriate. Reception table decor, welcome signs and dance music can really top it all off.
It’s All About That Font
The font you use is key for your invitations, signage and anything else you have printed like napkins and programs. “Deco Pinstripe” is Gatsby but not everyone has that available to use, but no fear, there are plenty of art deco fonts. We used “Broadway” font on our picture collage above but there are many choices available on free font download sites.
