Gatsby, what Gatsby? 1920´s Wedding F. Scott Fitzgerald style

First you take a drink, then the drink takes a drink, then the drink takes you. Hello dancing flappers and dapper gents – the 1920´s are the perfect vibe for a wedding. Think  Jazz Age music. Vanilla, ivory, or pale pink dresses and Art Deco. Champagne and gold details. Think Old Hollywood hair. Jeweled headpieces, lace, sequins, rhinestones and feathers.

How to throw a “Great Gatsby” Summer wedding.

  • A venue with big gardens and open space works well for an elegant, Gatsby-esque lawn party.
  • Serve swanky beverages popular during Prohibition, like gin rickeys, mint juleps and champagne cocktails.
  • Consider setting up a dream-like vintage photo space. With photographs taken in a 1920´s handmade living room wall.
  • Add great food, drinks and live music and you´ll have the most amazing wedding party like my brother´s.

Kate Moss wed British guitarist Jamie Hince back in 2011 and John Galliano made her a vintage-style wedding dress inspired in Zelda Fitzgerald – the american novelist and the wife of writer F. Scott Fitzgerald. Gowns of the 20´s featured sequins, fringes and other embellishments, but the cut was usually simple.

  • Bride: Portuguese designer Gio Rodrigues wedding gown. Etsy Headpiece and Emmy London shoes. These bespoke shoes were my wedding present and are hand beaded using mother of pearl, Swarovski crystals and real mother of pearl shell, they are real labour of love. Thank you so much  Emmy Scarterfield, Boutique Manager Ella and Managing Director Dickie! You are absolutely lovely.
  • Groom: Portuguese designer Armando Silva brogue shoes. Lanvin bow-tie, PRASSA three-piece black tuxedo and suspenders.

O Amor vive no terceiro andar

Quando se procura um botão olha-se sempre para o chão. Que sorte ter nascido de cabeça levantada e poder ver-te no terceiro andar, de um prédio que dava para o céu. Tinhas o futuro inclinado na janela e os cabelos a olhar para o chão. Eu admirava-te de cabeça levantada e era do tamanho de um botão. Tu estavas lá em cima e acenaste-me assim com a mão. Podias estar mais bonita? Não. 
Disseram-me que o Amor vive no terceiro andar e não gosta que o tratem por senhor. Costuma andar de cabeça levantada e nunca vai pela escada – anda sempre de elevador. Não sei se é melhor esperar ou se me atreva a tocar. Disseram-me que ser rico é ter tempo. Tentei trocar onze anos por euros e ofereceram-me três contos de réis, mas só aceito um conto de fadas, onde trocamos tudo por miúdos.
Sabias que estava à procura do meu botão? Que sorte estar a olhar para o chão e poder ver-te do terceiro andar, de um prédio que dava para o teu chapéu. Tinhas o braço inclinado na janela do condutor e a menina dos olhos contra o sol. Tu estavas lá em baixo, quase em contramão. Podias fazer com que me sentisse mais bonita? Não.
Disseram-me que o Amor vive no terceiro andar e que é um senhor. Ensinou-nos a andar de cabeça levantada e a escorregar no vão da escada, com o pé no acelerador, como quem vai de elevador. Disseram-me que ser feliz é ter tempo. Coloquei onze créditos na máquina do tempo e saiu-me um botão. Decidi cosê-lo no peito da minha bata branca. Aperta na segunda casa, com vista para a Ria. Vou lavá-la à mão, para não o perder na lavandaria.
O Amor nasceu na Suíça portuguesa e anda sempre de elevador, com certeza. Gosta de pairar no vão da escada, com a sua mulher apaixonada. Melhor do que esperar é atrever-se a tocar. É melhor apanhar a cabeça do chão e deixar a alma olhar para o ar. O amor vive num terceiro andar
