@HaleyBOOMS:  I love the roarting 20’s idea! I’m incorporating Art Deco inspiration into my wedding, without being too literal. Some gilded touches, gold frames, stylized invites, jazz band etc…

I’m in the begging stages of wedding planning, but my fiance and I have been looking into venus, I’ve made lists of things that are imporntant, started researching jazz bands and prices online, looking at bridal gowns that fit the era–in a modern way, etc…

@HaleyBOOMS:  There have been several Bees that were married in a theater:

You could make a backdrop to look like the old wording screens from silent movies.

 

Build a standing wall, paint it with black paint, or black chalkboard paint, then use white paint or white chalk to replicate the old silent movie signs. You could pick a saying close to your hearts, a favorite quote from an old movie, or  a favorite love quote.

 

This is just an example to show the idea.

 

 

Or you could have someone with computer skills make the sign for you and project it  onto the theater screen.

I love the theater idea! Sounds really unique. Plus the whole rustic, country, diy thing is kind of fading out regardless. Actually, I’ve noticed the whole twenties theme seems to be getting big right now, so I think it will seem much more modern/less outdated. (Although honestly, in ten years all of our weddings will be outdated regardless!)
