Emulate Your Star
Think back to when you were a little child. Do you remember your parents sitting on the couch watching a black and white movie such as Casablanca, Gone with the Wind, Meet Me in St. Louis or even Roman Holiday? These are classics that every romantic knows by heart. The lovely outfits, the drama, the vows of love, the desperation and then tears. For your big day, you could find pictures in old magazines, online or perhaps from a friend and use them to create your own engagement photo. Some photographers will have outfits that you could borrow to look like your famed lovers or you could even make your own costumes to pose in. Photos like these are great to put as table toppers, send with your wedding invitations, or even have a huge photo at your reception for all to see when they walk in.
Make Your Own Movie
Spend some time watching your favourite old romance movies and pick out a scene that really speaks to you. Then try and replicate that scene for your own movie. Find a tailor who will make you a satin faced Organza Gown with Illusion complete with a big lace bow on the front or perhaps if you would like a more classic looking dress you could go with the Bohemian Wedding Dress look. See if you can find a classic car to rent for the day and you could arrive at the church in true vintage fashion.
Oldies but Goodies
Perhaps you remember going to visit your grandma on a summer day when you were a kid. Your grandma would always take out her little tea cups and saucers with the flowers and the matching tea pot. She would carry it out on this silver tray and put it down in front of you. She would put down a little paper doily on the coffee table in front of you and then pour a little drop or two of tea into the cup for you. These are fond memories for many people when they think back to enjoyable memories visiting grandma. If you are looking for that cozy homey feeling for your wedding day, you could find a reception hall who can get a hold of this inventory for you. Then you could have all the tables set up with the vintage lace tablecloths and doily’s to match.
