Wedding Inspiration: The Great Gatsby

This week, our merry band of wedding planners has looked to The Great Gatsby for our inspiration. Did y’all read The Great Gatsby in school? Well, just in case you haven’t…

(from Amazon): The Great Gatsby, F. Scott Fitzgerald’s third book, stands as the supreme achievement of his career. This exemplary novel of the Jazz Age has been acclaimed by generations of readers. The story of the fabulously wealthy Jay Gatsby and his love for the beautiful Daisy Buchanan, of lavish parties on Long Island at a time when The New York Times noted “gin was the national drink and sex the national obsession,” it is an exquisitely crafted tale of America in the 1920s.

Maybe you’re more familiar with this version?

If so, I would encourage you to read the source material. It’s truly spectacular. As is the STYLE!
