Old Hollywood Wedding: Timeless Inspiration

Some ideas that give your wedding a feeling of the Hollywood glamour

Old Hollywood will always be in vogue. The style, the music, the decorations – you can see all the elements of Hollywood glamour at your own wedding. Things like colour palettes, guest outfits, table settings typical of the time and individual elements such as champagne towers or photos of Hollywood actors in the seating area will help convey the atmosphere of that time.

Thinking about a good Old Hollywood style wedding? My event boutique would be happy to offer a perfect one. Me and my team have prepared some ideas that would give your wedding that feeling of a Hollywood glamour.

  • Wedding invitations – Save the dates – can be glammed up.  You can choose a vintage font like this one here to announce the important event in your life. Remember to put some glittery stars confetti in the envelope.
  • The Old Hollywood’s colour palette is chic and glamorous. Black, gold and silver can be used to decorate the table and even the wedding cake. Adding a drop of red like the red-rose boutonnières on the table will complete the Hollywood look.
  • Pearls. Pearls. Pearls. And more pearls in your outfit, accessories or in the décor will give that iconic 1940-1950s Hollywood vibe. If you wear a dress that has open shoulders, you will look like Grace Kelly.
  • Cigar Bar. Treat your guests to cigars. That will give a sophisticated vintage Hollywood touch. Who of your guests look like Clark Gable? 
  • Photo Booth. This is not something exceptional for an Old Hollywood style wedding. It is a very popular entertainment at many weddings in Italy. What will make this experience truly Hollywood-like though is the props. You are welcome to add mini Oscars, moustaches, hats, feathers and many other items to add some glitz and gloss. 
  • Champagne Tower. No Hollywood wedding is complete without it. Fill your glasses with champagne and treat your guests. Is there a Great Gatsby sauntering among them?
  • Celebrity-themed table setting or seating chart. Use black and white photographs of Audrey Hepburn, Marilyn Monroe and other Hollywood actors on the table number cards and on the seating chart.
