8 movie-themed wedding ideas

8 Jun

Are you are planning on having a movie-themed wedding? Maybe you went to the cinema on your first date or perhaps watching movies is a special activity that your and your fiancé just adore?

A wedding theme can be lots of fun and can be helpful during the planning stage by narrowing your field of vision to focused ideas. Here are just a few ideas to get you thinking about ways to incorporate the silver screen into your celebration:

1. Set the stage by sending out save the date cards or wedding invitations designed in an admission ticket style.

2. Purchase 3-D glasses and handout to guests as a prop and a great momento. Fun for group shots and for guests’ personal photos.

3. Ask a cake designer to create two golden academy award cake toppers – one modeled after the actual statue and another female version to stand side-by-side.

4. See yourself on the big screen and have your engagement film screened during the reception.

5. Place flower arrangements on vintage film reels to create interesting centerpieces. You can leave the reels natural or paint them to match wedding colours.

6. During cocktail hour serve mini popcorn bags filed with alternating sweet and savory flavours.

7. Candy buffets are really hot at the moment, and you can tweak this fun idea by making it suitably thematic. Simply add a “Concession Stand” sign to the buffet and have someone collect tickets from each guest when they visit. Or consider a candied popcorn buffet!

8. Create a slide show of modified movie posters that feature your guests! Select posters that represent who they are or any hobbies and interests they may have. It’s a nice gesture to acknowledge how happy you are to have them there with you to celebrate.

My hubby and I used about half of these ideas in our wedding last year, but I know there are so many other ways you can add the fun and elegance of cinema to a celebration of love. Please feel free to share any other ideas you might have in the comment section below!
