I don’t think it’s too much, it just depends on how you put it all together. Good luck.

You can have lots of different elements. When you start mixing too many patterns/colors is when it gets too busy. I actually like the luminaries if you use black and white photos, and I love the old movie poster idea. It is very vintage/old school romance which goes perfectly with your black, white, and red color scheme.

I totally agree with Mrs.ChubbyBunny! I like the look of black and white photos and they’d be perfect with the rest of your decor! What gets too busy is when there are a lot of things that don’t seem to go together or that are clashing, but I think those would be great! If you had a different movie photo at each table, you could even use them as your table markers, instead of numbers.. if you are assigning seats, anyway.

Actually, I think it works great! I saw something on a decorating show once where they did an entire room based on movies. The color scheme was black, ivory and red. There was a lot of big blocks of color (like black furniture and white couches), lots of candles, and little pops of red everywhere. And then they had black and white stills from movies hanging… interspersed with b&w’s of movie stars and b&w’s of the person’s personal photos.

So yeah… when you described all this, it made me think of that. LOL

I think it sounds like a great idea and not too much at all!

I think it would be really cool. The luminaries sound awesome, and the poster idea fits you as a couple, so is perfect. Your color scheme makes me think of old B&W movies, so the details you want will fit perfectly (IMHO).

@GeekChic:  I think it sounds perfect as you are describing it!  🙂   My husband and I went for what I like to call the gamer geek chic mixed with Dutch, mixed with American, mixed with whimsy look.  Our colors were blue (mostly royal blue, but anything in that family was fair game), white, silver, and tiny touches of red.  We had Dutch shoe centerpieces, a gamer wedding cake and table names, homemade desserts (pure American right there lol), etc.  The whimsy came in with the DIY baskets and table name card holders and guestbook pages.

Inspiration board

That’s an “inspiration” board that I made up with elements of our wedding.  🙂  I loved how everything came together and even with so many different elements, it all just *fit* in the end.
