Ugh, I can’t believe I’m just getting around to blogging this beautiful wedding we designed back in May. We’ve had so many changes going on at EBD lately (great changes) we’re playing catch up on our weddings!
So, just when you thought the Great Gatsby movement was over…well it was sort-of… but we brought it back with a new spin, in lieu of our bride who wanted both a Great Gatsby and Tropical inspired wedding!
Upon our first meeting with her, I asked her if there was anything she truly loved other than her precious little girl, and her soon to be hubby…and she said pineapples! ( The lightbulb went off, and I begin to create this vision in my head) On with the theme I went of Great Gatsby meets a Tropical Inspired Wedding…but how did I marry the two?
The perfect Elements to Create a Great Gatsby Tropical Inspired Wedding:
- Choose Bright and Bold Colors
- Add lots of Gold, a can of Spray Paint adds an expensive look for a less expensive price. (Hint: Use this on Fern Fronds and pineapples to create a more elegant and timeless approach as well as to give your tables cape a more luxury look!
- Great Gatsby weddings typically always nod to feathers, however when merging both ideas together, add in Fern fronds to your feathers to give it that tropical vibe and a little more dimension.
- Lastly choosing palmettos or large tropical leaves and placing them flush on white table cloths are a great way to create more of a dramatic flair, without “breaking the bank”
We loved the look of these pineapples and think they are a great way to signify warmth, welcome, friendship and hospitably…since after all that is what the pineapple symbolizes.
