Fortunately for love birds everywhere, storm troopers, elves and zombies are not strictly reserved for birthdays. In fact, couples all over the world celebrate their special day with the help of their screen favorites.
If you’re considering adding a touch of Hollywood to your wedding theme, read on to see how you can turn your day into a fun, yet romantic blockbuster!
Alice in Wonderland
Perfect for the Mad Hatters among brides and grooms, this classic offers a blend of unique costumes, dreamlike scenes and a fabulous tea party as the main event! Take your pick between the 1951 childhood favorite, and the more peculiar, “Burtonesque” version of 2010, but both will provide with a plethora of wild ideas for a timeless wedding.
Handcrafted quirky seating labels and directions, locally made finger sandwiches, pink and purple Queen of Hearts’ tarts, and of course, a dress to match the design, either with a touch of “goth” or a princess-like ivory gown with vibrantly colored details. Organize an intimate getaway reception at the Wonderland House, or a countryside wedding that can only get “curiouser and curiouser!”
A summertime love story wrapped into a musical – what more could you possibly wish for your kooky, romantic wedding? Sandy’s 50s dress code and Danny’s patented dance moves will give your wedding a mix of urban spirit and soft colors, and your first dance as a wedding couple to the famous “We Go Together” will perfectly sum up the style of your special day. Make sure your chosen wedding invitations match the theme completely.
Find a band that will give you a true 50s feel, not only with your favorite movie tracks, but also some of the classics by Elvis and other greats. Serve burgers and fries, and of course, milkshakes at your retro wedding reception and don’t forget a classic Caddy to leave your wedding in style.
But of course, this list would be incomplete had we skipped the all-time favorite galaxy story of good and evil, and the romance of princess Leia and Han Solo. Along with the must-have hairdo for the bride, lightsabers for the Jedi groomsmen and bridesmaids, Han’s trademark vest and suit for the groom and of course, the Millennium Falcon. Not sure how you will pull that one off, but no Star Wars wedding can go without one.
Try to get your officiant to preside over the ceremony as Darth Vader, design a glitzy galaxy cake, and walk down the aisle accompanied by the Imperial March, and your wedding will be complete. May the Force be with you!
Tie the knot with a bang, by creating a powerful transformers-inspired theme, which will be all about the details. Decorate your flower bouquet to look like the matrix of leadership, have Primus preside over the wedding, and wrap up your vows with a mighty “Till all are one!”
The groom can have a custom-made Transformers suit, and your rings can be equally adorkable, but make sure to have a wedding gown to match. Toast with a sip of liquid Energon cocktails, and finally, bumblebee car hire can ensure that you drive off into the sunset with a prime muscle Chevy.
The Great Gatsby
For an opulent, imaginative wedding, look no further than the Great Gatsby! Art Deco golden details and edgy shapes will create a luxurious, glamorous atmosphere, perfect for a sophisticated special day. Everything should start at a mansion or a villa with that 20s feel to it, followed by impeccable decorations with gold and red details.
Your dapper gent should have an elegant suit, and a vintage wedding gown for the bride, along with shimmering jewelry items such as a diamond necklace or a hair band. Go for a vintage sound of gramophone records or a live orchestra to play the jazzy music of the Roaring Twenties.
The Wizard of Oz
Create your own venue, somewhere over the rainbow, with dreamy reds and blues, Dorothy ruby slippers with a twist for the bride and ribbons all over the place – on the chairs, napkins, utensils and flower arrangements. While a magical forest would be ideal for the given theme, you can certainly find a secluded Emerald City perfect for your special day.
Walk (or hop) down the yellow brick aisle in a blue wedding gown, and greet your guests with rustic tables and chairs, along with themed menu cards, and you will have a magic day with memories worthy of a lifetime.
