The 2013 American film adaptation of "The Great Gatsby" prompted a slew of 1920s-inspired wedding trends that embody the glitz and glamour characteristic of that era. Bridal fashion was also noticeably affected, with designers setting aside their Cinderella-style princess gowns and concentrating more on sleek silhouettes, Art Deco accents and statement accessories like sequined headpieces and costume jewelry. Since weddings can happen at any age, three local women, each representing a different generation of bride, prove that age is anything but a limiting factor when it comes to pulling off an ultra-chic bridal look.
