Hello Busy Bees!!!!!!
I am brand new to the hive and am looking for inspiration for the theme that I have finally decided on…vintage theatre meets Hollywood Glam meets 1940s! The wedding next April will take place in an old theatre, the reception in an old ballroom and I would like to tie all of the beforementioned elements into our day (without breaking the bank). Anyone out there want to share what they did or are doing with a bride setting out to tackle this theme?
I am also strugglign with colors and maid’s dress colors. My dress is ivory, and I will be adorned with jewels I am sure, but what about my maids?
One last thing…a Playbill program brought me to WeddingBee…does anyone know of a template I could borrow to create a playbill?

Hey!! I’m pretty new here myself! I’m also doing a Old Hollywood, Vintage type wedding in an Old Art Deco Theater! I’m having the ceremony and reception there.
If you do image searches for Old Hollywood theme, you’ll get a lot of ideas. The ones I’m thinking about are the Ostrich Feather centerpieces, movie names instead of table numbers, a red carpet aisle, very glam accessories (fascinators, caged veil, art deco style jewelry etc), I kind of like the idea of using the large balloon too. I’m still really nailing everything down!
As far as a playbill – I’ve been finding a lot of great ideas and cheap resources on Etsy – check these out: http://www.etsy.com/search_results.php?search_query=playbill&search_type=category&category=weddings.invitation
Hope this helps!

I am also having a reception in an old theater and the venue showed me this http://www.custommovieposter.com/gallery_wed.htm it was out of our budget but looks really cool, especially some of the vintage-old posters.

@MrsD2Bee: We have the same wedding date and theme. I am doing old hollywood glamour. I wish I could have found an old theater; that would have been perfect. I am also doing ostrich feathers in eiffel tower vases. My colors are red, black, and white with hints of damask print. I will have a red carpet runner outside the venue. My bridemaids will wear black and I had red/blk flowere made for their hair. For the table numbers I am using famous actors from that era w/ a red bkgrd and damask flourishes. I’ll use fake jewels to amp up the glam for the gift tables and so on. My dress is ivory/cream and I have a birdcage and fascinator. My bouquet will be red roses w/ diamond like jewels and black feathers. This is such a fun theme, very sexy, romantic, and classy. If you like, I can send you pics of things I have made. Happy planning!

Fitzly, the custom poster is so neat! Staceynrick…I could spend HOURS on Etsy – there is so much vintage on that site, and the prices are just right!
Best wishes to you lovely brides!
