Perhaps you can do the swanky lounge theme without overtly using the martini glasses?  Like posting sepia pictures and numbering them for tables and you and your hubs can toast with martini glasses instead of flute — this was sort of the theme for this wedding I was in — it was classy and modern but a little vintage http://www.sandersonimages.com/access/slideshows/Hilary_Matthew_Wed/

Hmmm…

Obviously the music is key to setting up that atmosphere.  But I’m assuming you’ve already got that covered!

I once wanted to use large martini glasses for centerpieces at an event but couldn’t find them at a reasonable price.  I ended up renting 4 regular martini glasses per table and stacking them in a pyramid (3 on bottom, 1 on top) and filled them with silver beads and poker chips (it was a casino theme).  It worked quite well.  If you are concerned about the stability of the glasses I’d say buy some cheap ones (I’ve seen them at the dollar store) and glue them together with a heavy duty, clear glue (check a hardware store).

Pictures of the two of you done in a retro 60s Rat Pack style would also add tons of personality.  Think black and whites with him in a tailored 60’s style suit with skinny tie and fedora and you in a cute 60’s retro dress.  They could make great table numbers.  

I think a big part of making it effective will be lighting.  Low lights from your venue and simple votives will probably do the trick.  A lounge vibe just has to be dark and smokey! (Maybe hold the smokey)

Your probably already doing this, but I’d rent old rat pack movies or watch episodes of Mad Men (you can watch it free on the network website) to get more ideas for cool 60s decor.
