Why not go for an Old Hollywood wedding theme if you appreciate glitz, stylish design, sparkles, and so on? It’s a sassy and glitzy concept that’ll be noticed. There are more epochs to rock than 1920 in Old Hollywood: 1930s, 1940s, and even 1950s, so pick what you like and incorporate these antique accents into your wedding. Let’s look at some stylish examples to get you started.
Old Hollywood Wedding Ideas
Make a stunning wedding appearance! Wear an off-the-shoulder wedding gown with beading, fringe, pearls, and lace, or a silk wedding gown with a flattering silhouette. If you want to attain a trendy and glam style, don’t be afraid to wear sensual necklines, chic silhouettes, and plenty of sparkles.
A retro updo or Hollywood waves, crimson lipstick, and bold earrings complete the look. Grooms typically wear tuxedos, but a white dinner jacket can be more stylish. Bridesmaids are free to wear their favorite colors in art deco beaded dresses.
Old Hollywood Wedding Decorations
Don’t scrimp on the decorations for your ceremony. You can transform practically any room with a simple blend of rose petals and candles heading to the altar, even if you can’t go all out with tall flowery aisle markers and extravagant backdrops. Another approach to make an impression is to upgrade your wedding chairs to a decorative style such as Chiavari or ghost chairs.
Everything in Hollywood at the time was flashy, glossy, and glistening. Imagine a formal Gatsby setting if you want to go with this wedding theme. You’ll know exactly which direction to go in.
Mercury glass or silver candleholders and vases as centerpieces, dazzling charger plates with art-deco style cutlery, delicate crystal champagne flutes, chandeliers, layers upon layers of hanging chiffon or tulle…all of these are fantastic features to use in this theme.
The dazzle and shine of old Hollywood appeal was all about the glitz and glam. Adding a little (or a lot) of glitter and glamour to your wedding night can help you achieve the right old Hollywood glam theme, regardless of your wedding budget.
Glittering the bridal party, the linens and centerpieces, the cake, and everywhere else where glitter, sparkles, and glitz may be added helps to tie in the extravagant vibe of the old school rich and famous.
Feathers and Faux Fur
In the 1930s, 1940s, and 1950s, furs and feathers were very popular in Hollywood. If you want to include a bit of that concept into your own wedding, use fake fur and/or feathers. It can be incorporated into your style and decoration.
What is an Old Hollywood wedding without glistening chandeliers? Consult local rental lighting companies for additional possibilities if your wedding location does not already have chandeliers, or utilize strands of crystals throughout your wedding decor to approximate the effect.
Table numbers made of etched mirrors are a gorgeous way to dress up your tablescapes. To create a magnificent effect, pair them with crystal centerpiece vases, votive candles, and patterned table linens.
Turn heads in an all-over lace dress. The clean yet enticing design is enhanced by an illusion back and button embellishments.
Instead of a standard veil, go for a whimsical feathered headpiece like a flapper girl from the 1920s. It’ll look great with the beaded, lace gown you’ve chosen for your trip down the aisle.
Feathers, on the other hand, aren’t just for your wedding hair. To fully nail the retro vibe, include them into your bouquet and centerpieces.
This classy look would be incomplete without a smattering of sparkle. These chandelier heels with beading are quite stunning.
Choose a rosy hue for the ladies’ outfits to create a red carpet for you and your bridesmaids. Your own white dress will stand out even more because of the brilliant color!
Consider Bette Davis’ thick, long eyelashes, finger-waved hair, and rich, crimson lipstick when deciding on the appropriate hairstyle and cosmetics for your old Hollywood wedding theme. This outfit is ideal for this wedding theme.
Finger waves look great on both long and short hair. If you want to add a little “wild child” to your exquisite and put-together Hollywood style, add a stunning headband.
Old Hollywood Wedding Cakes
Select a classic white buttercream cake with flair offered by your embellishments of choice to combine your own personality with tradition. While the possibilities are unlimited, you can decorate the cake with fresh flowers, fondant characters, bright candies, ruffles, a caricature of you and your fiancé, or anything else that makes you happy.
Make a statement with your cake by covering it in carefully placed edible sequins. For an Old Holywood, vintage, Gatsby-themed, or winter wedding, this sequined wedding cake is perfect. The sequins can be any color, although they’re most commonly gold or silver.
A cake covered with sugar flowers is an ideal choice for a romantic or classic wedding, as it provides a fairytale-like look that is sure to enchant your guests. Because of the high level of talent required to make these sugar flowers, your cake may well be regarded as a work of art.
To really amp up the wow factor, think timeless elegance with a hint of spectacular flair for your wedding stationery. You may make an invitation package that is truly luxurious by including touches like gold envelopes, foiled monograms, and typography.
