Choose a stunning Hollywood design marquee wedding celebration by taking your ideas from the Hollywood glamour age of the 1940’s, 50’s and 60’s. The time of the legendary movie star weddings of Bogart and Bergman, Rainier and Kelly, Olivier and Leigh, and Burton and Taylor.
A clear span marquee will offer you a good clean space which gives you unlimited decoration scenarios. Look back to the vintage movies to get amazing suggestions while keeping your focus on old style chic and Hollywood glitter.
Just imagine a stylish cocktail bar, backlit with colourful LED lighting, at the centre of the marquee, beneath a clear roof, in which Martinis are shaken not stirred, A Manhattan on the rocks would be the norm, and old-fashioned drinks out of your parents’ or grandparents’ time deliver the elegance. Who would have imagined it in a marquee?
Try to make a huge entrance inside an open top Studebaker limousine and get out on to a red carpet walkway lined with gold velvet ropes leading to a china hat entry porch. Give it that Hollywood “wow” aspect and arrange for photographers to snap your invited guests making their way to the wedding marquee party just like Hollywood royalty.
Populate the wedding marquee using film posters and film reels, coming from timeless films like “Casablanca” or “Gone With The Wind”. Spread golden stars and lanterns all over the marquee for extra Hollywood sparkle. Scatter gold sequins over crisp and clean white table linen. Decorate black Chiavari seating with gold seat pads.
Use classic flowers, along the lines of roses, peonies, and lilies for table centrepieces, and also for the brides’, and bridesmaids’ bouquets.
Trying to recycle is a great idea for weddings, in particular wedding cake toppers and stands, regardless of whether it’s an auction find or a relative’s antique, the whole thing adds to the drama, a reminder of the past. The cupcake is not really king, the style here is for bright tinted macaroons. Include a separate chill-out place and fill it with lots of cushioned settees and gentle lighting, in which guests can unwind and chat.
Guests need to dress to impress. Advise men don white tie and tuxedo or darker lounge suits, “Rat Pack” design and style. To get a classic appearance copy Fred Astaire, who wore sophisticated sharp, pressed clothes. Just remember, a neat haircut is required to complete the style.
A simple graceful and classic bias-cut silk gown that has a v-neck along with a fishtail hemline is wonderful for a Hollywood bride. Ladies will need to focus on time honoured styles. Hanging diamond earrings would definitely be a must to get a little added drama. Add extra elegance with gloves and pearl jewelry. Gold appears to be right back in fashion from a lengthy spell of silver and would fit the design and style.
Lastly, enhance the whole picture with a black and white chequered dance floor. Book a swing group and vocalist from the style of Frank Sinatra and the Tommy Dorsey Orchestra and go for melodies, just like “Love and Marriage” and “True Love”.
