15 Ways to Party Like Gatsby at Your Wedding
From the jazz to the fashion, we’ll go for ’20s inspired whenever we can. Aside from everything else there is to love about the roaring ’20s, the one thing we can’t get enough of is the classic bookThe Great Gatsby. With Gatsby’s awesome parties, Daisy’s fab style and the romance between them both, we totally swoon whenever we think about it. While we wish the story could have ended differently for the couple, we’d like to think their wedding would have been an unforgettable affair. We’ve rounded up 15 Gatsby-approved ideas for a wedding that will channel their style, lifestyle and overall extravagance.
1. Roaring ’20s Gatsby-Inspired Save the Date ($10): Set the theme for your wedding right away with these ’20s-inspired save the dates. Your guests will be super pumped to party in style with you.
10. Bubbly Bar: Gatsby and his counterparts didn’t let prohibition stop them from getting their hands on some bubbly. Offer guests a champagne bar with all the fixings. (via Amore Wedding Photography)
13. All That Jazz: Forgo the DJ and modern hits and opt for of-the-decade music. Guests will love dancing to jazz songs played off old records, or better yet, played by a live band. (via This Modern Romance)
14. Getaway Car: Remember the stunning Rolls Royce Gatsby drove? While you may not be able to find the exact car, you can definitely make your getaway one to remember by cruising off in a ’20s classic. (via Amore Wedding Photography)

Back in January, we introduced you to a feel-good cause to inspire your New Year's resolution: a walking challenge to help raise funds for the amazing cancer fighters at The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. I took part in the challenge with the Brit + Co team and ended up walking 105+ miles in January — it was awesome.
This spring, there's a new challenge on the horizon, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Big Climb. The ask: On May 15, 2021, you can step up to take cancer down by committing to climb 1,311 steps, walking 3.2 miles, or doing 440 chair step-ups at home as part of the Big Climb. If you need some motivation to bring movement back into your daily routine — look no further!
As always, it's free to sign up, but climbers are encouraged to set a fundraising goal to help beat cancer. We'll be organizing another Brit + Co team to step up, and I hope you'll join us too! Keep scrolling for a peek at where I'll be completing the challenge in my Los Angeles neighborhood around the hidden Silver Lake Stairs. Happy climbing!
Never underestimate the power of an accountability buddy! I asked my in-laws, my partner, and a few friends to join me so we can keep each other motivated and accountable in completing the challenge — virtual high-fives all around! Also, my dog Fox is a great climber, too.
An aesthetically pleasing backdrop is a huge motivator for me! I'm fortunate to have all sorts of painted steps around my neighborhood to keep the challenge interesting, but you can also keep cool inside with at-home chair step-ups.
Don't forget to share your progress on social — #BigClimb!
Feel free to break the challenge up if you need to by tackling half the distance in the AM and half at sunset. Here's me 1,311 steps later and ready for a break — but, think I earned this one!
