@crayfish: Wow, everything looks so beautiful, I especially love the colored chairs!
Our wedding was in October so most people were expecting “fall colors” but there wasn’t a lick of orange or brown anywhere. Our colors were burgundy and champagne with black/cream/gold accents.
Our theme was Italian Film Festival and I worked pretty hard to carry that throughout. It wasn’t a “movie” theme though, like a theater, it was really more the “film” part that we tried to bring out.
The theme started with our invitation suite, even the envelopes had curtains on them:
I made our ring box and included this film strip with a quote from Love, Actually:
I made programs out of that same film strip design from the box, but I can’t find the photo of those.
I made little signs for the reception area for the bar, the gift table, the guest book, and a menu at each table, all using different pictures of film strip backgrounds in gold tones. The gift table and guestbook table also had a little bit of film reel confetting sprinkled on them. Here are a couple of those photos:
Instead of table numbers, we did table names, all of famous romantic movies. Each table had a small centerpiece made by myself of a gold film reel, a small movie poster, a menu, a single burgundy hydrangea, and burgundy and champagne candles.
The favors were little boxes of popcorn, even the kernels matched our color scheme:
And then our (very small) cake for cutting was also placed atop a film reel. We only had this small one for the tradition – our main dessert was a gelato bar. Also, the topper has literally zero to do with our theme, it’s just sort of an inside thing, little crabs are (believe it or not) quite a romantic part of our relationship.
