Great Gatsby Theme – Bridal Shower Inspiration

One of the most popular themes for bridal showers is the Great Gatsby. Call it a love affair with the 20’s or maybe champagne? Either way it’s a truly fun way to celebrate your bride-to-be in style.

Roaring 1920s Great Gatsby Themed Bridal Shower from

When speaking with bride Melanie about her Gatsby themed shower she told us she was extremely surprised!

My bridesmaids and mother-in-law went above and beyond to ensure that my day was great!


So how do you make sure the bride has the right attire for the day without ruining the surprise? Do what these bridesmaids did and have the attire at the venue waiting for the bride!


Photo Booth Fun 

The bride loved that her favorite Great Gatsby quotes were painted on canvas and she really enjoyed the golden backdrop photo booth section!

After the guests got their pictures taken with the backdrop, they were printed out so they could be added to the guest book. This is a nice gift for the bride-to-be.

Guests should take two photos, one for the bride and one for themselves. Not only is it a cost effective shower favor, it is a way for the guests to show off their outfits in the photo booth. It also creates an activity for everyone to participate in, and gives them a photo opportunity with the bride.



My dad and fiance ended up joining the party. I made my dad leave the room when I began to open the gifts from my bridesmaids!


Looks like her groom-to-be got more than he bargained for sticking around! These pictures are priceless!

I wish I could go back and relive this day! Thank goodness that I have Nicole’s pictures to look back on.
