Fiance’s mom wants the “Meet the Fockers” Table

Several of you have suggested the themed movie center pieces for each table at our reception and thank you! (Erin, Katie and others….) I love your ideas and the fact that you are getting into this theme. (Validates my insanity, no?)

The movie theme tables was exactly what we had in mind for center pieces.  Last week when I took the Fiance’s mom to visit our reception venue , we started talking about how to execute said idea. I think our best bet is to buy cheap plastic frames and print off pictures from each movie to insert into the frames.

Then, we could “fancy it up” with voltive candles and some old movie reel to decorate around the items. I don’t want to spend too much money, but if you have any other DIY movie-themed center piece ideas, please share in comments.

Now for the list of movies – since we aren’t doing a formal sit-down meal, there won’t be a “seat” for every person. I want to do a mix of 10-person rounds and high boys to maximize space and keep people up and mingling (dancing!). The high boys will probably not have a movie theme, and we’re looking at 16 (ish) 10-person rounds.

Here’s where you come in – let me know which romantic movies you’d like to see at a movie theatre wedding reception.

Just so you know, Meet the Fockers is taken. The Fiance’s mom wants that table for his fam.

A ticket to vote

You guys want to have a little fun? It’s time to play “vote for your favorite ticket style invite.”

Thanks to my new favorite invitation Etsy creator, Cottontail Digital Press, who created these three fabulous choices for our movie-theatre themed wedding invite!

So, here’s how you play. 1. Look at the invites.  2. Tell me which one you like the best in the comments and why. 3. Tell me: do you like the concept of calling it “Love Story?” or should I be more creative? I want it to be very clear that it is a wedding invite and not some weird movie night with Adam & Stephanie….

Just a few notes – the date and church are not correct, so those of you expecting to see one of these in your hot little hands come January, don’t put this date in your Outlook calendar. For the meal response, as you loyal readers know, there won’t be an option to pick an entre, so that will not be there. Also, I have scrubbed our last names to protect the guilty innocent. So please don’t think my friend at Cottontail Press created invites with horrid white blobs after our first names.

Ready? Go!
