Gatsby Wedding Inspiration

Fantasy Friday ~ A Great Gatsby Inspired, Dance Your Ass Off Kind of Wedding

Bridey, you know that saying, "Have fun, but not too much fun!"? Well, it's rare that I would use that to describe a wedding (sorry, but, the truth hurts), but, Regan and Troy's wedding? Well, I'm pretty sure the guests had a pile of fun, if not too much. Aside from the choreographed dancing, complete with costumes (Regan is a dance instructor), and the tons and tons of decorative sequins, I love that the B+G trusted their florist to take their Gatsby theme and run with it. Like, they gave him NO other details. They literally had know idea what to expect as they walked into the venue. True fucking story! WHOA!! And the florist? Well, he did not disappoint!

Seriously, can you imagine? It was just as much of a surprise to Regan and Troy as it was to everyone else! I mean.... Applause to the B+G! Bridey, I'm certainly not saying that you shouldn't have any input, but it is absolutely imperative to trust the vendors you hire, and that is exactly what Regan and Troy did! And, OMFG, just wait until you see the décor! A MAZ ING!! Enjoy! And don't forget to soak in each and every detail of this FAB wedding!!

This photograph makes my eyes well with tears.
So cool... 
Regan, you are stunning! And, I love the dark purple calla lilies!!
There's my city again... Sweet home Chicago!
I mean... The dresses and the sign are so FAB!!
Oh yeah!!!!
I have been pulled over more times that I should admit publicly, and looking at those GORGEOUS cars behind the signing book table, I feel my knees getting weak.
Check out the stacked cigar boxes in the middle of the escort card table! OMG!

Fantasy Friday ~ A Seriously FABULOUS, 1920s Styled Shoot...

Bridey, you’re going to see A LOT of this gorgeous 1920s styled shoot. Not just on Bitchless Bride, but if I had to guess, you’re bound to see this shoot on several sites. And normally I would choose to dodge a submission knowing that it is going to be on a gazillion blogs, but honestly? It’s just too good! I simply couldn’t walk away… As a wedding planner, as a woman and a little bit of a diva, I just had to share this with you as soon as I saw it come across my inbox. Seriously, just wait until you scroll down and see for yourself.

Sooooo… This group of gifted vendors got together and created the shoot in the India House, located in the “stone street historic district” of New York City. The India House was established in 1914, and even has its own landmark building. How FAB is that? And, the goal? To feel like this wedding took place in the 1920s. Know what? They totally nailed it! By the time you’re done taking it all in, you will feel like you just walked out of the Great Gatsby.  So, enough outta me… Enjoy this breathtaking shoot!

Holy shit... If looks could kill...What's that like? Being beautiful, and having the most stunning eyes? Right?Wow. Just wow. Look at that headpiece! Hot damn. That's hot! Amazing dress. Simply stunning!Does anybody else feel the sex vibe emanating from this photograph? I mean... This pic totally gets me going! "Oh... you want me to get comfortable and have a cocktail while I wait for her to change? Sounds good." That dress! That hair!!! OMG!!Here they go again! Damn sexy.ANOTHER amazing dress... Bridey, if you're looking for a Great Gatsby feel for your wedding... I think you just got a ton of inspiration!!!
