I don’t think that nachos and pretzels really fit with “Hollywood glamour.”

I think I would tone down the theme, personally. You could totally do a lot of cool decoration/stationary type stuff (movie ticket invitation/placecards, maybe film reels involved in the centerpieces somehow) but to be completely honest I think having the Maid/Matron of Honor speeches being acceptance speeches is taking it too far. I think when the theme overtakes the fact that it is a wedding it is too much.

I am always up for food I can pronounce at a wedding!

@Ms. Drgnfly:  that’s more “night at the movie theater” than “Hollywood Glamour”. Which is cool for a kid’s birthday party or something like that but your guests will probably be expecting a more substantial meal than a concession stand. I’m not saying that you must have a formal sit down dinner at $100pp but hotdogs and nachos are tacky for a wedding. I’m sure you can find something else within your budget, even if it’s just sandwiches and salads, at least it’s real food.

I agree with these guys. I love hot dogs and pretzels, don’t get me wrong, but I definitely don’t think it fits with your theme. What about green salad, chicken, and pasta, or something along those lines? Something simple that will please folks, without being snack food?

Why not have a basic menu, whatever you choose, and switch the names with some of your favorite actors or movies? If “glam” Is in your theme, I dot think hot dogs and popcorn fit the bill. I understand the whole plated dinner being expensive/ out of budget, so maybe a buffet featuring more “glam” foods? Or maybe take popcorn seeds and put them in cute bags as favors? I would tone the theme down a bit and cut out unescessary expenses in order to serve a better dinner.

@Ms. Drgnfly:  I think popcorn, candy, nachos, etc work for a cocktail hour, or late-night snack, but not for the main meal.

 Personally I think you need to rethink your theme, doing such a big theme is going to be hard to pull off especially if you can’t afford a sit down meal, maybe more of a movie theme might work.

@Ms. Drgnfly:  I think you can use your ideas- maybe just not for the entree.

I think popcorn in cute litle bags with a choice of toppings: parmesan cheese etc along with mini hot dogs and sliders would be great for the cocktail hour.

If you want to keep costs down, serve a salad course, then pasta.

Then go back to the movie theme with dessert- cut and serve your cake and have a movie candy bar.

@Ms. Drgnfly:  Hollywood Glamour does not equal pretzels, nachos or hot dogs in my book. I think it’s more “night at the movies” which is really not glam at all.

Those foods are messy and unless they are incredibly tiny, canape style portions I can envision them ending up all over people’s glamorous clothing.
