THis sounds like such a cute idea!!!! And, I love your colors. You could have a popcorn bar at the reception, and buy some little popcorn boxes for people to fill. I have seen the boxes online, but i don’t remember where. I came across some movie reels, super cheap, on ebay!! You could put them on the walls, etc. Here is the link:


let me know if that doesn’t work. You’ll have to let us know how the planning goes, I am officially intrigued!!

You could also buy some reprints of old movie posters. you can try http://www.allposters.com

Good luck!!!

oh oh oh… fall + movies = HALLOWEEN CANDY sales! you can get candy that would eb good for a candy buffet on sale, andsince kids don’t like the old fashioned ones you’re in double luck

 Go to a craft store like michaels, they have a lot of fall invetory out now to give more inspiration

You can do movie inspired drinks too!

One of the Bees was planning on doing this sort of vintage film theme too.  Maybe Ms. Flamingo? Anyways, you might be able to find it, if you look for it in tags. There were tons of great ideas in some of her posts and lots of readers commented with additional thoughts and suggestions.
