My experience as a wedding planner: "Sex and the city" decorations for centerpiece

I 'm creating all the decorations for a movie theme wedding that will be celebrated on June 30.
My idea is to make wooden hand painted shapes inspired to bride and groom favourite movies, attack sticks and insert them in the flower centerpieces on each table.
I drew the shapes in pencil on wood and I cut them. 
I painted the shapes with white acrylic plaster to create a suitable base for painting.
Here are some shapes inspired to four different movies:

You will understand later what movies are! :) Or maybe you already knew!

The first shapes I have prepared are for the movie "Sex and the city" for the table of bride's friends from university.

I painted the cosmopolitan cocktail and the "Manolo Blahnik Something Blue"!
I will insert them in the flower centerpieces made of purple and white roses.

I painted also the back of each shapes:

See you soon with other movies!

My experience as a wedding planner: list of bride and groom favourite movies

 am looking at the list of movies for the wedding I'm going to organize in June 
(as I talked in my previous post :

Wedding theme is cinema, so every table of the wedding dinner will represent a movie, here are bride's favourite ones:

- Gone with the wind by Victor Fleming 
This is her favourite movie, so we will use it for the bride and groom table!

- The color purple by Steven Spielberg

 - The pursuit of happiness by Gabriele Muccino

 - Pretty woman by Garry Marshall

- Sex and the city by Michael Patrick King
This is the perfect movie for the table for her friends from university 

- Back to the Future by Robert Zemeckis
This is a very important movie of her childhood, so we will use it for the table of her best friends, I'm thinking of building a model of  Back to the Future DeLorean! (Maybe decorated like the bride and groom car!!)

- Far and Away by Ron Howard

-Titanic by James Cameron


Here are groom's favourite movies:

- Kill Bill by Quentin Tarantino

- Modern Times by Charles Chaplin

- 2001 Space Odissey by Stanley Kubrik

- The Gladiator by Ridley Scott

- Pulp Fiction by Quentin Tarantino

- Stand by me by Rob Reiner

- The Untouchables by Brian De Palma

- Blade Runner by Ridley Scott

- The Departed by Martin Scorsese

- The Shawshank Redemption by Frank Darabont

Now I am going to draw some sketches for the decorations inspired by these films, I have lots of ideas!
I'll show you them soon :)

My experience as a Wedding Planner : a real wedding

'm very honored and excited to be the wedding planner for the ceremony of a young couple who will marry on June 30, 2012. 
I'd like to share with you my experience, you can follow with me,  here and on my Facebook page:
the creation of all the decorations of this hand crafted wedding movies theme!!

Bride chose purple and white as her colors.
 Purple is a very charming color, there are many shades of purple, we will try to use a lot of them!

Bride loves white roses and lisianthus, a very romantic choice!


Wedding theme is cinema!!
All  favourite movies of this couple will be part of the ceremony, all movies that have important meanings for them, that remind them of special moments in their lives. 

For this couple I will realize all the flower centerpieces for their 18 tables for 10 people with decorations inspired by their favourite movies, the wedding seating chart and of course the cake topper!

The idea is that every table will represent a movie, they gave me the list of their favourite ones.

Are you curious about their favorite movies? :)

I will let you know soon the list in my next post!
