Remember that romantic comedy you watched that just made your heart melt? Trust me, we know how easy it is to wish that was your life. But when you tie the knot, you can incorporate all of those favorite films you watched over the years for an extra special, wedding-worthy touch. Here are a few famous films that you can get some inspiration from for your nuptials:
Sweet Home Alabama
Ahhh, remember how romantic it was when Reese Witherspoon and Josh Lucas kissed on the beach in the middle of a storm? It doesn’t get much better than that – and viewers are made even more envious when Lucas pulls out the ultra-cute line of “So I can kiss you anytime I want” when Witherspoon asks why he wants to marry her. Guess what? Thanks to Etsy, you can display this quote right in your ceremony or reception with this wedding sign.
Sex and the City 1 & 2
If you loved the first movie, channel Carrie’s wedding look with a bit of feathers in your hair. Flowers are traditional for weddings, but feathers can be just as stunning. They add a pop of color and texture to your hairstyle. As for the second Sex and the City film, incorporate some Moroccan flair into your big day with lots of intricately decorated lanterns, like those seen here on Green Wedding Shoes’ blog. With a variety of color and styles, it’s the perfect way to create unique lighting that stays on-theme.
You may not be able to marry Ryan Reynolds (sigh), but you can get Sandra Bullock’s perfectly sleek tresses and sultry center part. After washing your hair, start by parting it in the center of the crown. Next, use a serum like BioSilk Silk Therapy to achieve Sandra’s soft and shiny locks. After it’s been applied, blow dry the hair on the warm to cool setting. Then, taking small sections of hair, flat iron until straight. Finish it off with a light holding spray so your tresses still look flowy and natural.
Julia Roberts and Hugh Grant met in a small bookstore – so if you share a love of literature, bring it right into your centerpieces. Old books provide a rustic touch to any wedding and are an inexpensive option. Head to your nearest thrift or antique store for some books, then stack them up on each reception table and place a vase of flowers or candles on top.
