Hire a jazz band or hire a DJ and talk to them about playing jazz from the 1920s era. You’ll feel as though you stepped right out of the book! After all, it was called the jazz age for a reason. If you don’t want to play jazz throughout the reception, consider just playing it for cocktail hour.
A Daisy-inspired bridal ensemble
When searching for your gown for the big day, go the vintage route if you’re looking to match Daisy’s ensemble. Search for a dress adorned in feathers, jewels, lace, intricate art deco detailing or all of the above! Top off the retro bridal look with a matching hairpiece. Feel free to attach a birdcage veil to the headband to add even more mystery to your outfit. If you need a way to warm up at night, bring along a fur stole.
Pearls, pearls, pearls
Pearls can serve many more purposes than just looking gorgeous around your neck. They can be fashioned into a centerpiece whether they’re spread across the table or they fill a vase with a few flowers poked in. They are an integral vintage piece to the Great Gatsby puzzle.
Pocket watches for the groomsmen

Leave the wedding in style
Ditch the limo and go for a retro or classic car. Look into renting a Rolls Royce or an old convertible – it doesn’t have to exactly match the time period of “The Great Gatsby” to stick to the wedding theme! Riding off into the sunset in a luxury vehicle is the perfect end to a perfect night.
