The Great Gatsby Wedding of Your Dreams

The Great Gatsby is considered F. Scott Fitzgerald's greatest novel, which took place during the 1920s & '30s, also known as the art deco period. Although it is a story of the thwarted love between a man & a woman, which we're sure isn't ideal for YOUR love story - the decor/theme is undeniably show-stopping! Make the story your own with classy invitations & Gatsby-esque decor that lives up to the glitz & glam of the time. With sharp details, bold colors, & unique designs with a flare, your guests will be impressed!

Travel back in time with Stems and RSVP Style to re-create the magic of the 1920s where:

The parties were bigger. The pace was faster, the shows were broader, the buildings were higher, the morals were looser, and the liquor was cheaper.
— F. Scott Fitzgerald

Floral & Event Design - Stems by RSVP Style

Table linens

These were double treatment linens. The first layer was a champagne gold shantung silk linen and then cloaked with a sequined gold lace overlay. These unique, bold chameleon chairs were a hit and really added to the retro dinner-club feel!

The floral design contained lilies, hydrangeas, roses, tulips, phalaenopsis orchids, dendrobiums, fenestra & seeded eucalyptus.

We added pops of black to the table settings for a modernized touch!
Stemware: black water goblets
Napkins: black shantung silk napkins

Shantung is a type of silk fabric characterized by a ribbed effect and a sheen that gives dimension and interest to the fabric!

Poolside Cocktail Hour & The After Party

This wedding had four phases, which we fully coordinated from beginning to end! We started with a poolside cocktail hour accompanied by a live jazz quartet. These fabulous 500 pound crystal chandeliers are 5 feet in diameter - we were enchanted! After cocktail hour, we headed inside for the clubhouse sit-down dinner. The room was lit up with gold lighting and draped in royal lace linens. The bride and groom shared a gorgeous giant sweetheart settee. After dinner, we went outside for the dance party to enjoy the live band. There was stunning lounge seating, cocktail tables with bar stools, and cafe tables with the same bold chameleon chairs from the dinner reception. As the sun set for the after party, the pool lit up with a stunning monogram for the happy couple! Food was then served in the fireside lounge containing corndogs, tater tots, soda pop, cookies, etc. & a fun DJ to keep the party going all night long. It was perfection for a party under the stars!
