Make your wedding more glamorous than the Oscars, lets go old Hollywood glam!

Hello, it's Heather here writing my first blog for you guys (and my first ever blog I think!). Keeping in with my slight obsession with film and awards season, the Oscars have inspired me to write about old Hollywood Glamour and how you can theme your day around this.


Once I started looking, there are so many ideas out there for this, so I've tried to limit myself to my favourites, or I'd be here for days on end.
Here's a little inspiration board from Snippet and Ink
It's all very classic, the gold and the white theme, art deco, classic cars and lets not forget the popcorn!
Start as you mean to go on, with themed invitations and save the date cards. There are so many different ideas out there, but my favourites have been the art deco invites and the movie ticket styled invites.
Here are some lovely ones from some of our friends over at the Glasgow Wedding Collective.
This beautiful movie ticket invite is from E.Y.I.LOVE, they have a massive variety of wedding stationary on their site and its all just as great.
This is from the lovely Com Bossa designs, a site full of beautiful bespoke wedding invitations and more.
Both f them give guests an idea of whats in store, and stand out from any other invites. The art deco invite even has a touch of the Great Gatsby about it and the roaring 20's party theme.
Moving on to the tables, name cards and centrepieces, there are a thousand and one ideas out there that I love. Most of them are gold and white, but black and red also make a beautiful old Hollywood theme and I'm sure there are ways to incorporate other colours into it.
Wedding ChicksI adore this numeracy, would be excellent combined with the movie ticket invite. With the mini clapperboard as stand, it's a really lovely personal touch to add to your tables and one that I'm sure wouldn't be forgotten.
These countdown reels are also great as table numbering ideas. If your tables don't have names then you can still make their number cards exciting and allow them to fit into the theme. You could even have theme as a countdown and have your table as the film title card! You can get them from Cobblestone Invites on Etsy.
Anything art deco really will fit in beautifully with the theme. However, if you're looking for a more subdued but still as authentic a theme, here is a beautiful centrepiece I found on the Brides of Adelaide website.

More subdued on the theme, as I said before, but every bit as beautiful. It gives off the classic look and the old Hollywood vibe. I love the little gold frame in the middle. And here's a similar, full table spread I found on the Just Imagine - Home Decor Facebook page.
This one breathes vintage and glamour, the gold and the white and the over indulgent flowers spread around are very nostalgic of the old Hollywood and the glamour of the 20's.
Here are some other little touches to add to the theme. I think the small things really bring it all together and the tiniest of touches can really make it.
Champagne Tower - PinterestA champagne tower is amazing, the vintage champagne saucers really add a special touch to it. These saucers really make you feel like you're part of the theme, and we actually hire them out for these special occasions. Head on over to Butler and Taylor to hire them!
A vintage popcorn machine fits in with those movie tickets earlier, and can be a little treat or a wedding favour. Especially great if there are kids around! Some Like It Hot are a lovely Fife based company who will provide a popcorn machine, an attendant and some other little treats to suit your needs!
And then add some classic movie tunes to really get people into it, we have a Gramophone DJ service that will play all your old favourites from the 20's to the 50's. Oh the nostalgia!
And why not end your day in style and drive off in a vintage car? Here's a beautiful classic Rolls Royce, although I can't guarantee a Scottish wedding will have the backdrop of the picture below!

And while you're getting ready, who said teacups don't give off that old Hollywood glamour vibe? Nobody did. Look at this beautiful shot for inspiration..
La Maison d'Anna GI'll leave you with this for further inspiration for every moment of your day!
City RagHave you ever been at a wedding (or an event) that was centred around just one movie? Share it with us! The more extravagant the better! American Hustle maybe? Love that film. Let us find out what works..
Happy planning! Hope you enjoyed this and there will be more to come from me!

Yeah you are right. The gold and the white wedding theme look so classy. All the wedding theme ideas that you shared are breath taking. It is an extremely great blog on wedding themes. Actually I am also getting married and looking for one of the most beautiful banquet halls in Chicago. I would love to use this Oscar theme for my wedding decoration.
