- Wedding: November 2014 - Historic cinema
Calling all fim buffs!
Is anyone having a film themed wedding?
My Fiance and I are film obsessed, I used to be a projectionist and he has a PhD in Film Studies and owns an independant dvd hire shop where we also live!
It’s a no brainer that classic films will be ahuge part of our day.
We are hoping to even get married in a gorgeous 80 year old cinema that we love going to and that I used to work at!
Anyone else planning anything similar and want to share some ideas?

Fiance and I aren’t having a film theme, we are having a book theme. But here are some ideas – name the tables after your favourite films, your favourite movie couples, actrs & actresses. Have the invites or just rsvp cards made to look like movie tickets, have a red carpet aisle runner, have a photobooth with classic movie type props (Marilyn Monroe’s wig, Charlie Chaplin’s tie, etc) And maybe have a film reel case as the base of each table setting

I’m not exactly planning on a film themed wedding (well maybe I am but more of a melding of a medly of our favorite movies) but I’ve seen a few truly awesome ones on offbeatbride.com that looked truly epic. Actually offbeatbride is just epic all around, I come here for wedding porn but it’s offbeatbride that’s really filling my idea book. I highly recommend the site if you’re looking for ways to incoperate the movies in your big day!

@MissBettsy: Horror films are my breead-and-butter. So, I will spare my guests any incorporation of that theme (although it would be highly entertaining).
I second PP’s Offbeat Bride suggestion, and I have some random ideas that might work without being too cheesy:
- create a silent film instead of a slideshow (to show at the Rehearsal Dinner or reception); bonus points if its on an old film projector
- your first dance can be from a popular, classic movie scene (ex. Astaire & Rogers)
- OMG you can have Vaudeville performers (do they still have those?)
- you and your Fiance can re-create classic film posters and post them in the entranceway of the theater (your bridal party can also partake)
- if you have a photobooth, definitely try to get a clapperboard as a prop
- your signature drink(s) can be popular classic movie drinks (ex. Vodka Martini “shaken, not stirred”)

I got married in a cinema 🙂
We had all film music for the ceremony and named the tables after films. And we served popcorn after the ceremony! We also had a clapperboard with our wedding details on.

We contemplated having some filmy elements in our wedding, but instead decided to move more towards books – they fitted a bit better with the Autumnal elements we wanted to include!

My fiance and I love movies. We own way too many (but still not enough!) We are incorporating movies into our wedding by giving the tables movie names or actor/actresses names. We are also having a movie quote trivia game playing while guests are waiting for us to show up at the reception so they aren’t bored. I’ve also seen invites that look like movie tickets or like a movie poster. Those were pretty fun.

My fiance and I both majored in film, so we really wanted to incorporate film into our wedding in some way. We’re just going to do small movie posters in frames for our table numbers. We picked movies with a romantic theme to fit with the day. Still haven’t printed the posters yet…hopefully it will look alright!
