vintage wedding jewelry

Gatsby Glam

The luxurious fashions and silhouettes of the Roaring Twenties are just as dramatic and captivating as the love story between Jay Gatbsy and Daisy Buchanan. Everything from the exquisite fabrics and jewelry, to the stunningly handsome Leonardo DiCaprio has provided us with some great inspiration for a Gatbsy-themed wedding day. The jazz age craze has brought back some of our favorite things including: pearls, feathers, lace, sparkles, fringe, detailed beading, smokey eye makeup, and of course, red lipstick!

Twirl into the Twenties

The Gown

Kendall by Jenny Yoo is a silk Mikado gown Daisy Buchanan would look ravishing in. This classic and elegant silhouette portrays a vintage feel. Kendall features a traditional bateau neckline with asymmetrical pleating radiating from the waist. The bodice has two crystal appliqués details that add just enough glitz-and-glamour to the dress.

Reva by Jenny Yoo is a silk crinkle chiffon gown that is also a perfect match for the time period. The halter neckline with embellished pearl and diamond collar is very 1920s. The waistline hits just above the natural waist with a gathered detachable belt. Back bodice has a keyhole slit from neck to waist.

The Bridesmaids

Hudson by Jenny Yoo would fit in perfectly in the jazz age with the silver metallic swirl lace and sweetheart neckline with inverted pleat detail. The waistline hits just above the natural waist with gentle pleating and a velvet ribbon finishing off the seam. Dress length finishes just above the knee with a light scallop detail.

Kennedy by Jenny Yoo is an Eastern Shantung dress that could be spotted at one of Jay Gatsby’s elaborate parties. The Kennedy features a slightly scooped strapless bodice with pleated fold-over detail. Soft gathered pleating creates a full A-line that hits above the knee.

The Accessories

Marvelously coordinated and accessorized outfits were a feature of 1920's fashions. Dresses, jewelry, shoes, brooches, and headpieces were put together perfectly to create an elegant and sophisticated look. Here are some stunning Sara Gabriel accessories you can purchase at our boutique that pair well with soft pin curl waves that scream Great Gatsby.

Astyn Veil

The Astyn Veil is a French net asymmetrical face blusher with SWAROVSKI® crystals & ostrich feather detail. What better way to make a statement than with this dramatic veil straight out of the 20s!?

Makenna Comb

Bubbly Swarovski pearls and crystals are accented by glittering Swarovski stones on this comb that is a perfect accent to almost any hairstyle. Pin up your sleek locks with this eye-catching hairpiece.

Gloria Hair Ribbon

Sara Gabriel designs painstakingly linked each filigree in this hair ribbon together to create a glittering vintage look that can be worn in your hair OR around your waist! The Gloria Hair ribbon is a dazzling addition to your wedding day up-do and coordinates perfectly with the Kendall gown.
