Planning a Vintage Hollywood Wedding

Why not add a little hollywood glamour to your vintage-style wedding? Here are a few inspirations and ideas on where to begin...

Bridal Wear
 The dress is a great place to start with. To accomplish the hollywood gam - take a look at bias-cut dresses, v-beck lines and fish-tail hems, lace and satin add a very classic looked when paired with a set of chandelier earrings. For your hair think - classic Grace Kelly, & Veronica Lake.

Groom Wear
  Black or white tie is a very classic look with clean cut hair and very pressed clothes. Think one button suits, dark colored.

Wedding Colors & Flowers
  The classic hollywood look includes silvers, white, black, blush and very light pinks and yellows. And for your flowers, stick to classics, such as roses, peonies and lilies.  Keeping things simple adds a very elegant feeling.

   Look for invitations using your wedding colors and theme. Script fonts and lacey patterns, maybe even consider a monogram design. Damask and chandelier graphics are also very classic.

  Location is important to start the even off right. A few location ideas include an old art-deco movie theater, an old fashioned formal restaurant or hotel or a grand ballroom. Places with dramatic ceilings and hardwood floors add to the glam. 

Also consider your transportation between locations - a rented vintage Roll Royce perhaps?

  1. Hello,
    Great blog i like it
    Some ideas to decorate in style include: life size cut outs of famous actresses and actors, movie reel tins centerpieces (type 'movie reel centerpiece' in search), large clapboards that you personalize, 'walk of fame' stars (you could make your own and include family and friends names on them), and of course balloons with a Hollywood theme.
