If you want to transform your wedding venue into a theatrical adventure, find inspiration in these fun ideas for movie wedding themes.
Star Wars Wedding Themes
If you are planning a Star Wars wedding, you might have a few storm troopers show up to take over the galaxy. Storm troopers could make an appearance at your reception for entertainment and photographs. Have your groomsmen in costume to march down the aisle and take position next to the groom for the complete Star Wars experience.
The Little Details
Whether the light side or the dark side, saber fight on a starship during your photo experience. Consider serving Jawa Juice during your cocktail hour. You probably won't be making it with bantha hides mashed with fermented grains. Ask your bartender to get creative with a recipe. Place a label card on the bar or platter so your guests will know what they are tasting. Serve up a side of five blossom bread and space fruit from the planet of Naboo for a galactic dining experience.
Star Wars Music
Star Wars wedding themes come to life with the soundtrack. Take your Star Wars experience from ceremony to reception with music from the 1977 release. Have Chewbacca or Darth Vadar deejay, and consider playing some of these titles:
• "Main Title"
• "Imperial Attack"
• "Princess Leia's Theme"
• "The Desert and the Robot Auction"
• "Ben's Death and TIE Fighter Attack"
• "The Little People Work"
• "Rescue of the Princess"
• "Inner City"
• "Cantina Band"
• "The Land of the Sandpeople"
• "Mouse Robot and Blasting Off"
• "The Return Home"
• "The Walls Converge"
• "The Princess Appears"
• "The Last Battle"
• "The Throne Room and End Title"
Harry Potter Wedding Themes
Imagine a spellbinding wedding in the magical world of Harry Potter. Step through the hidden doorway into the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry at The Crystal Ballroom, where the fairy tales from your imagination become the magical events of your lifetime. Step inside the castle to a place of charms and spells to the Harry Potter wedding of your dreams. No need to let any magical hat choose your house of magic. At The Crystal Ballroom, you hold the power to choose from the Gryffindor, Slytherin, Ravenclaw, or Hufflepuff.
Choose Your House
Bring your courage, bravery, nerve and chivalry inside the house of Godric Gryffindor, where your mascot is the lion and your colors are scarlet and gold. The interior is transformed with every magical detail, from the color coordinated linens and sheers to the chair sashes and centerpieces. Look out for the house ghost, Sir Nicholas de Mimsy-Porpington, and don't forget your password for entry to this magical event.
If you choose the Hufflepuff, you value hard work, patience, justice, and loyalty. Your mascot is the badger, your colors are canary yellow and black, and your element is Earth. Make your way through the concealed entrance found in a pile of barrels in an alcove in the corridor, and be prepared to be spellbound by your magical moment that awaits you. Tap the barrel two from the bottom in the middle of the second row in the rhythm of Helga Hufflepuff to enter. Envision barrel-top inspired décor, and yellow and black chair sashes to add to the ambiance of this Hogwarts house.
Imagine your dream wedding at the Ravenclaw house, where values, intelligence, creativity, learning, and wit are required. Your Mascot is the eagle, your colors are blue and bronze, and your element is air. Travel into the West side of Hogwarts, and maybe you might meet with the house ghost, the Grey Lady. Envision blue lighting and canopy sheers to produce the illusion of a domed ceiling with stars. Be prepared to solve a riddle to enter into this magical Harry Potter wedding.
Choose the Slytherin house and bring your ambition, cunning leadership, and resourcefulness. Your mascot is the serpent, your colors are green and silver, and your element is water. Travel beneath the Hogwarts Lake and speak the password to a patch of bare stone wall to enter the dungeon-styled room. The Bloody Baron might make an appearance here. Green lamps and a greenish glow will illuminate your way.
Get Creative with Harry Potter
Be creative with Harry Potter wedding themes. Design your invitations to match. All of your students (guests) must receive the Hogwarts' acceptance letter, the Hogwarts Express ticket, or the Marauder Map. Make sure you serve butterbeer at your reception.
The Great Gatsby
Pulling off The Great Gatsby inspired wedding themes requires an over the top party with art-deco patterns, feathers, black, metallic, bling, stringed pearls and everything glamour. Imagine gold and black candelabras topped with white and black feathers. Envision sequined table runners, gold charger plates with black napkins and contrasting chinaware, and black manzanita trees bejeweled with strings of pearls. Black satin chair sashes, feathers and everything that speaks the roaring 20’s culture will help you pull off all of the finishing touches. Don’t forget to have your guests whisper a password to enter the underground party.
Inside the Speakeasy
Remember these are the days of prohibition, and this reception is an underground speakeasy. Passing alcohol on decorative trays at a cocktail hour is the perfect way to pull off the theme. Don’t forget the jazz music in the background! This was the Jazz Age. Brass horns, bass, drums and a jazz ensemble create the ambiance for The Great Gatsby inspired wedding themes. A couple could also consider a deejay with professional lighting and music from the right era to keep the party swinging all night.
Attire for the Era
When thinking wedding dress, grooms tux and the attire for the wedding party, think roaring 20’s style. Short sequined bridesmaid dresses and feathered headpieces will create the look. Dress the gangster boys in a roaring 20’s tux and black shiny shoes to perfectly portray the theme. A formal beaded and sequined gown with a feather headpiece and pearl necklace will create the roaring 20's look for the bride. A 20’s era tux with a tailcoat, shiny black shoes, a cane and a top-hat will dress the groom for this classy jazz era look.
Beauty and The Beast
If you are dreaming about this French classic, your theme demands a fairy tale castle with the grandeur and awe of French décor, crystal chandeliers, oversized candelabras scattered throughout the space at different heights, a dramatic blue and gold color scheme, and stacks of books. It would be impossible to have Beauty and The Beast wedding themes without a red rose. Incorporate red roses in the wedding venue, on top of candelabras and in the wedding bouquet. An accent table with the enchanted rose will create the perfect touch.
Let the characters of Beauty and the Beast inspire your decor. Add antique clocks throughout the venue or as centerpiece decor to incorporate Cogsworth, the talking clock. Adorn each table with over sized candelabras to perfectly represent the castle’s maître d', Lumière. Create invitations with a “Be Our “Guest” message. Include a tea party for Mrs. Pots and Chip at the reception. Belle’s love for books should be evident within the space. Recreate the library with a small stack of books on every table. Serve French cuisine at your reception. Play the movie soundtrack during your event.
Recreate a Cinderella Fairy Tale
Bring Cinderella's ballroom to life with oversized candelabras and colorful roses. Blue table linens, runners, and chair sashes with silver charger plates and fine china will create a setting for kings, queens, and every princess.
Cinderella Wedding Dress
No stressing the something borrowed and something blue with this theme. All eyes will be on the bride with a blue ballgown bedazzled with a sparkled effect. If you adhere to the story-line, select a ballgown that speaks to your heart, and alter it with shimmering stitching and a ballgown underskirt to add exaggerated volume. A tiara and a bouquet of hydrangeas will provide the finishing touches.
The Groom's Attire
The groom's attire should always coordinate to match the bride in a way that compliments her look. A white tuxedo with a long tail and gold embroidered accent designs or a traditional black or white tuxedo can pull off a Cinderella theme.
Planning the Details
Send your guests formal invitations to the ball, and bring the fairy tale to life with a footman to greet guests as they arrive and open doors. Fasten a glass slipper to a blue or silver satin or silk pillow, and place the ring inside the shoe for the ring bearer's ceremonious event. Candelabras, an aisle runner and rose petals will add the finishing touches.
A Cinderella Cake
Sky blue fondant with pink and blue roses, gold piping and a white overlay of filigree are the little details that create the perfect Cinderella inspired wedding cake. Additional elements, like a clock with hands inching around towards midnight and a golden carriage on top can create an extra touch of Cinderella. A carriage can be substituted with a glass slipper, Cinderella inspired castle or a bluebird cake topper. The Crystal Ballroom can help you design and coordinate the elements of your wedding themes to match your cake.
