After the glitz of the Oscars last night I would love to venture into the world of the old style movies with a Hollywood Glamour Wedding theme.
This theme is all about making the guests of honour feel like Superstars.
You can’t escape the allure of a red carpet and that can be a fitting entrance for the important couple.
The colour palette for this theme is classic monochrome but with Gold to spice things up.
As a prelude to your event, your invitations should give your guest an insight into your movie world, with a cinema ticket look being popular.
This can be followed through with On the Day stationery such as place cards, order of service and the Guest book.
To transport you to your Venue a classic black Rolls Royce or perhaps a glamourous Limousine would ensure you arrived at your Big Day in style.
For your ceremony and your reception decor you may wish to start with black as a base shade and work up using gold to accent perhaps with chair sashes, napkins etc.
For Wedding attire the Bride could be in the softest ivory or be striking in a gold gown and have her bridesmaids in beautiful contrasting gowns.
In the good old days of Holywood, dresses with a bias cut and a fishtail hem proved to be very popular.
Also remember, all those Hollywood starlets of old, never stepped out without their glossy tousled hair and their pillarbox red lipstick
Team with striking black or gold accessories based on your dress colour choice.
The Groom and groomsmen will look suave in Tuxedos or black suits and gold colour accents could be made with a tie, bow tie or buttonhole.
For florals consider classic cream with perhaps black or gold ribbon to tie bridal bouquets, and this can be continued on in table centrepieces, bridesmaid posy and buttonhole.
For added glitz perhaps consider a sparkly Heirloom bouquet.
To theme your centrepieces a little more its fun to consider a pile of movie reels as an alternative.
Also think about naming your tables after the classic movies of the past.
Fairy lights around pillars or the use of a starlight curtain can add extra twinkle to the room.
You can sparkle up your tables with table diamonds or eye catching votives for your t-lights.
Metallics in cakes can be incredibly striking so consider a Gold cake to really draw the eye.
Instead of favours consider having an Popcorn Bar, an ice cream bar or a pix and mix as an alternative to transport guests back to that cinema experience.
Below are some cool products that stood out in the movie theme….

I hope that my Hollywood Glamour Wedding theme has given you a little inspiration for your own red carpet celebration.
