The old Hollywood glamour wedding theme has re-emerged and is being reinvented to suit modern celebrations. Traditionally, this Tinsletown-inspired motif has epitomized glitz and glam, but that doesn’t mean you have to go overboard with glitter and diamonds.
The old Hollywood glamour wedding style can be interpreted in a chic and sophisticated ways–just look to starlets like Marilyn Monroe or Ava Gardner for inspiration. To incorporate this look into your wardrobe, try using pearls — a classic gem often associated with this period of time. Or, if you’ve already got your accessories figured out, ask your bridesmaids to don pearly garlands (perhaps you can use them as bridesmaid gifts?).
Feathered headpieces can also give you that vintage old Hollywood glamour girl look. For your wedding accents, a red and white bouquet wrapped in black satin ribbon is very fitting to this theme. Opt for red velvet cake or cupcakes (to go with your colour scheme) and serve classy drinks such as champagne and martinis.
